GOD-TRACKING IS LIKE PLAYING FOLLOW THE LEADER WITH JESUS
When I was a boy we used to play a game called, follow the leader. The game involved one boy becoming the leader while a bunch of others would follow him as he ran and walked and climbed over ever obstacle imaginable. The followers would follow the leader to the point of complete mimic, down to facial expressions! It was so much fun that even after the game had stopped we would continue imitating each other until we rolled on the floor with laughter.
As Christians we are often called followers of Christ. This implies that we should be following not only the words Jesus spoke but his very behaviour. I believe that Jesus was a fun-loving guy who loved kids. Much of his teachings involved analogies of childlikeness. For instance, he once taught that the way to find God's kingdom was with the heart of a child. Life can be fun if you allow Jesus to take the lead. Therefore, to be a God-tracker is to be a follower of Christ and to be a follower of Christ is to play follow the leader with Jesus.
However, all too often problems come in our lives because we choose to do our own thing and don't allow God to guide us. When we trust in ourselves and in our own abilities we set ourselves up for problems. The Lord desires that we trust in him completely by following the instructions of his Word and the lead of his Spirit, always. We don't always understand why certain things happen the way they do but even when things go wrong in life, we must trust that God is still in control. Therefore, we must rely emphatically on him and not lean on our own understanding. Sadly though, many of us do rely too much on our own opinions, so much so that we completely miss God's best for our lives.

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.
Verse of the Week
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."
Quote of the Week
A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes
"It seems to me, as time goes on, that the only thing that is worth seeking for is to know and to be known by Christ -- a privilege open alone to the childlike, who, with receptivity, guilelessness, and humility, move Godward." --- Charles H. Brent

HELP ME TO SIMPLIFY MY LIFE BY DOING ONLY WHAT YOU LEAD ME TO DO
"Dear Lord Jesus, I really desire to play 'follow the leader' with you. I'm sorry for always offering my own opinion and doing things my way. From now on I want to open my life up to your express plans and purposes for me. I choose to fix my gaze on you, by your Word and your Spirit, and watch for every movement you make so that I can follow your lead. Lead me in the way to get through these problems I have caused by self-centred decision making and help me to simplify my life by doing only what you lead me to do. Amen."
