Dear God Tracker

God-Tracking Is Being Willing to Grab the Baton and Run

"But I haven't led worship in over two years," I said to Karen. "I'm not sure if it's God's will for me to pick up my old guitar again and offer to lead praise and worship in this church, however great the need." She had just mentioned to me that the previous worship leader of the new local church we'd recently committed ourselves to, had been moved away leaving the pastor and his wife desperate for the future of the church. Karen knew that I was only scouting for excuses to doubt God's call to serve him in. In her usual nonchalant manner my lovely wife then said something like, "You'll never know unless you give it a try."

I picked up the phone and rang my new pastor. With hat in hand I rambled on about how many years experience in worship leading I had and that I'd been praying about offering my services to the church and now that I heard the previous team had resigned Jim cut me off in midsentence. "You know what, Dudley?" he said, "You just interrupted Jane and me as we were praying. We were just asking God to provide a musician this week and that if he didn't then we'd take it as his direction for us to leave the ministry." I was dumfounded and not a little humbled. Only our God could provide a need like that in the way he did and use me to do it.

Dear God-tracker, you and I are in a race a relay race. Each of us is standing ready to humbly take up the baton from the other in the call to grow the Kingdom of God. None of us is as important as all of us so never take lightly the call of God on your life. If he has raised you up and provided you with the gifting to do whatever he has called you to do then rest assured, he will use you. And as you continue to acknowledge him then be willing to humbly make that phone call or write that e-mail. God has ways of not only confirming his calling on your life but also of meeting the needs of others in the process. Meekly take up that challenge in faith and run. He who promised is faithful and he will do it!

Help Me To Play My Small Part In The Greater Purpose Of Building Your Kingdom

"Heavenly father thank you so much for the purposes you have planned for my life. Forgive me for ever taking your call for granted and I pray you'll help me to keep my eyes focussed upon you as you direct my ministry. Help me to humbly run this race as I take the baton from the person behind me and help me to play my small part in the greater purpose of building your kingdom. Amen."
