Dear God-tracker


It was around 11pm when Karen and I made our way upstairs to bed. "I have such an uneasy feeling about Kerryn," said my wife as we settled down. My daughter had embarked on a round the world trip and was in New Zealand at that moment. "Really?" I said. "Let's pray." We prayed for protection and blessing upon Kerryn and her travelling companion at that moment, knowing it was already mid-morning in New Zealand.

Early the next day our phone rang. "Hello, Mr. Anderson," said a Kiwi voice. "Yes." I replied with trepidation. "We want you to know, Kerryn is alright." Instantly I knew something severe must have happened. The voice on the phone went on to explain how Kerryn was involved in serious a motor accident about 9 hours previously but that she had escaped with only bruises and some cuts. She and her friend, who was driving at the time, had entered a dual carriageway and were struck by a van at 100km per hour. The conditions were intensely serious. The driver had taken the impact, suffering a fractured her neck. However, it was clear that God was already in control. In the vehicle immediately behind the one that had collided with them were several casualty medical personnel on their way to work. They very quickly took control of the situation. Kerryn and her friend were rushed to hospital and were very well cared for.

The reason I share this story with you is to point out that bad things do happen; even to Christian believers who walk by faith. You and I are not free from the troubles of the world just because we born again. In fact Jesus once said, "In the world you will have trouble." But then added, "But take heart; I have overcome the world." Living as Believers on this planet does not exempt us from disaster or suffering. However, as Believers, we are reinforced by the fact of Christ's continual companionship. In the Psalms we read that God instructs his angels to protect us in times of disaster. By the Holy Spirit (who is God) the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us. And it was the same Holy Spirit who was the One who prompted Karen and me to pray for our daughter at probably the exact moment of the collision!

As you seek and track God's plans for your life, be encouraged to never take your eyes off Jesus. Continue to acknowledge God in all your ways and trust him to direct your paths without, leaning on your own understanding; especially through those disasters in life. I do not believe that God instigates calamity but when calamity happens he is faithful to lovingly rescue you and take you on to new heights of victory. Difficulties come your way to test you in order to make you stronger and more secure in your faith. God has a calling on your life and will prove you like gold in a furnace. And how can you be proved unless you are tested? Those whom God calls, he tests. Ask Moses; ask Peter. Better yet, ask Jesus.

My daughter, Kerryn returned home from New Zealand after a few days in hospital with no lasting effects of the collision. And praise the God of healing, her friend returned home a few weeks later and eventually made a full recovery. Both girls have now become much stronger in their faith and believe that, though Satan intends disaster for destruction, God will always work it out for the good.

God-tracking is facing every disaster in the knowledge that he is always in control

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

"We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties." --- Oswald Chambers

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

I claim my victory over every negative circumstance and claim your companionship in all my trials

"O Lord, I am facing a very trying time at the moment. It seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. And yet, O Lord, as I read these words I'm reminded that, not only are you the light at the end of the tunnel, you're also the hope I have in the darkness of the walk. Help me to rest in your strength. Help me to be secure in your promises to meet all my needs, heal my body and prevent my foot from stumbling. I claim the promise that no weapon the devil forms against me will succeed (Isaiah 57:17). Therefore, I claim my victory over every negative circumstance and claim your companionship in all my trials. To your glory, O Lord. Amen.
