Dear God-tracker


Have you ever travelled on a boat on windy seas? I remember one time crossing the English Channel on a ferry in the worst storm I've ever experienced. It was a long 6-hour crossing and I remember sitting inside the lounge on the top deck watching the massive waves crash against bow of the boat. The splash of the waves was reaching the window of my third story vantage point with ease. Through the haze of intense nausea I gazed out at the ocean and noticed that the waves were anything but uniform. Unlike the ripples created by a stone tossed into a pond, these monsters were blowing in every direction. The crests of the highest waves were breaking and their foam was being tossed back and forth by strong winds.

As I watched a scripture came to mind. James wrote that the person who asks God to meet a need but doubts in his heart is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. A person like this should not expect to receive anything from the Lord; he is double-minded and unstable in all his ways. Those mighty waves I was watching that day were anything but decisive. They were up one minute down the next and tossed left and right by the wind.

Life's issues can sometimes beat against the hulls of our lives like the might waves of a furious storm at sea. With very rise and every fall we become increasingly battered until it seems we begin to sink. But remember, you're never alone on your journey across the seas of life. If you know and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord then he is right there with you in every storm. He will never abandon nor forsake you. Even when your legs give way and your head spins with confusion or fear, he is there with you. So be strong; pray and do not doubt that God will come through for you! Don't be like the crests of those double-minded waves, tossed back and forth by the winds of change. Stand strong upon the promises that God has given you and, in faith, shout out, "I can and will do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"

God-tracking is being single minded in the hope of his promises, even in the wildest of storms

Stay blessed

It's all in the Book

Verse of the Week

James 1:6-8
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Quote of the Week
A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes

"God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform; he plants His footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm." --- William Cowper

Don't Give Up, Look Up!
Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus!

Help me, by the Holy Spirit, to be strong and courageous and to face every storm in the knowledge that you are always with me

"O Lord, I'm feeling very shaky in my Christian walk at the moment. I know that you have given me promises and instructions for the future but I confess that I have my doubts. So Lord, I pray, forgive me for my double-mindedness! I am sorry for doubting your word. Today I rise up and stand firm upon your word. If you promise to meet my needs then I choose to believe it! Help me to not be like waves tossed in every direction by every whim of teaching or doubt. Help me, by the Holy Spirit, to be strong and courageous and to face every storm in the knowledge that you are always with me. Amen."
