Dear God Tracker
God-Tracking Is Walking In Faith That His Plans Will Prevail
Through the prophet Jeremiah the Lord has said, "I know the plans I have for you." He goes on to say that these plans are to give us a hope and a future. The Lord God knows our tomorrow. He has foreknowledge of all we will go through in order to realise his plans. However, the Bible also tells us that we have an enemy who is intent on our destruction. The devil's plans are to disrupt the plans of God for our lives.
After we were married Karen and I moved from Johannesburg to Pretoria in South Africa where we lived. After we had settled in we looked around for a church to join. For three months we attended a very large church but somehow knew that God didn't want us there. One day as I was driving through town I came across a small whitewashed church set back from the road. I was intrigued so I stopped the car and made my way to the notice board. As I approached the door a man came out and greeted me. We struck up a conversation and I discovered that he was the pastor. He had just popped into the church at the exact moment that I arrived. We chatted a while and then I left. As it turned out my best friend had also recently moved to Pretoria with his wife and was looking for a church so we both decided that we'd give this church a try that coming Sunday.
Unbeknownst to me the whole worship team had grievously walked out the week before we arrived, leaving the pastor in a quandary. God had a purpose for that man and that church but somehow the devil had second-guessed God's plans and caused disorder. Oddly enough (funny how God works) my friend and I were both guitarists with some year's experience in worship leading. And so it turned out that at the exact time that the devil had disrupted God's plans for our new pastor's life, God's plans for my friend and me were to coincide our paths with his, so frustrating the devil's attempt to derail God's purposes.
The devil will do whatever he can to disturb God's plans for you. Satan's plans are wrought through sin, illness, loss, disorder, confusion and through physical attack. Satan is not unintelligent. He too has strategy and purpose and, although he does not know God's plans for your life, he can make a very good guess at God's purposes for you. He will do his level best to derail you from your God-track. But take courage, Jesus has overcome the devil! So if you feel as though your plans for the future are falling apart then simply continue to acknowledge the Lord in all you do and keep your eyes of Jesus. Then trust that your Lord will direct your path, always!
God-Tracking is walking in faith that his plans will prevail.

What is trACker?
GodTracker and trACker owe their origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, OnTrack. Although OnTrack went off-air in 2005, trACker has continued to help people to track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.

I Stand Strong in the Knowledge That You Are In Control of My Life
"Dear Lord, thank you so much that you have plans for my life and that your plans are for my good. I confess that I acknowledge you in all my ways: in my relationships, in my work, in my church life, my hobbies and everything I set my hand to do. I know that you know my tomorrow so I put my trust in your will and purpose for me. I also believe that Jesus has conquered the devil and made a spectacle of him at Calvary. Therefore, I will continue to keep my eyes fixed on Christ and stand strong in the knowledge that you are in control of my life. I repent of my sins, resist the devil and put my faith in God. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
