Dear God Tracker
God-Tracking Is Keeping Your Eyes Open Along Life's Track
One of the most ludicrous satnav stories I have ever heard involves a 67-year old Belgian lady who set out on a 34 mile journey to fetch a friend from her local airport. She programmed her satellite navigational device for directions to the airport but somehow something went wrong. When she neared the exit to the airport the device instructed her to continue going. Obediently she followed the electronic voice and kept on going and going and going without stopping, except for fuel. Finally, two days later, after crossing five international borders and ignoring French and German signs she arrived at Zagreb station, Croatia! When asked why she had not noticed that she was so far from home she simply replied, "I didn't ask myself any questions. I was just distracted, so I kept my foot down."
God-tracking is a bit like driving to the airport to fetch a friend. When we give our lives to Jesus we consciously seek his directions for our way forward. However, the difference between navigating our God-tracks with Christ and navigating the highways with a satnav is Christ cannot be programmed by us! When we acknowledge the Lord in all our ways we surrender the right to selfishly programme our lives. When we acknowledge the Lord he directs our paths by faith and not by fate. Tracking God's highway involves keeping our eyes open for road signs and potholes and faithfully listening for our Lord's directions along the way.
In that new job or house move or relationship issue you are facing today tune into your Lord's voice. Open the scriptures seek him in prayer and watch out for the road signs along the way. I am confident that if you acknowledge the Lord then he will guide you and comfort you; he will strengthen you and refresh you. The Lord is faithful and he will bless you beyond your wildest imagination. Remember, your faith pleases God so walk in faith and know that he will reward you. But whatever you do, do not become distracted by the world's commentary on your life's road or you will soon find that you are programmed to become lost.
God-tracking is keeping your eyes open along life's track.

Help Me to Live By Your Plans and Not By Human Reason
"O Lord my God, I'm sorry for trying to programme my own life. I'm sorry, too for tuning into the world's commentary on life and allowing it to influence me. I know that only Jesus is the life, the truth and the way! Lord, be my way! Help me in this situation that I face to see and interpret the signs along the road and help me to make the right choices as I acknowledge you in all my ways. I seek your hand; I seek your voice and I seek your face. Help me to live by your plans and not by human reason. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
