Dear God-tracker


Discussing some of the latest scientific discoveries in cognitive neuroscience, Dr. Caroline Leaf says, 1 "The preponderance of evidence is pointing to the fact that we are wired for love (positivity) and we have to learn fear (negativity)." She goes on to point out that love represents everything that is good while fear represents everything that is evil or sinful. In other words, as human beings, we are all created with an intrinsic instinct for positive love. Fear was never wired into our beings. Fear and negativity result from forces external to our created nature.

I find this idea very interesting. Firstly, we read in the Bible that all God made was good, including man, and man was created in God's image. In 1 John we read, "God is love." Therefore, we're created in the image of love. By the Holy Spirit, John goes on to say, "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear."

Secondly, sin crept into the human race when man disobeyed God. When this happened, mankind fell from God's image of love and was exposed to fear. Satan (the serpent) lured man away from all that was positive and enduring into an environment that is negative and temporal. We see evidence of this in that God shut up the Garden of Eden to Adam. Yet, even in the curse God pronounces upon the serpent we see a glimmer of hope.

Thirdly, the good news: God, true to his word, did not abandon man to an eternity of fear but provided a way for any who would call on his name to be saved. By sending Jesus (the image of the invisible God who is love) God reconciled us back to his loving image. Jesus, who was sinless, became sin for us on the cross so that, in him, we could become the righteousness of God. As we read in Romans, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Now, I hear you say, "So what's this got to do with God-tracking?"

Just this: all those negative emotions and destructive forces in your world, which you are suffering from today, are a direct result of the old fearful fallen nature into which you were born. But you can be freed from their influence. I am always amazed at how science catches up with the Bible. Science tells us today that fear is learned, resulting in all that is negative, but love is intrinsic and results in all that is positive. Well, the Bible says it more plainly: Perfect love casts out fear and God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. Are you fighting with fear? Are you battling with depression, anxiety or low self-worth? Well I say to you, call on the name of Jesus and acknowledge him as Lord and Saviour, today. Do this and you will find yourself on the road to positive freedom. If you have already acknowledged Christ then stand on the truth of God's word and confess: "I do not have a negative spirit of fear (sin, depression, anxiety, disease, poverty, depravity, low esteem) but I do have a spirit of love, power and positive thinking. Confess: "I am a new creation in Christ. I am God's righteousness in Christ and God will meet all my needs in Christ." And then believe it! Only God's love by his Word and his Spirit can truly change your negative fears into positive love.

God-tracking is living in God's positive world of love, power & sound thinking

Your love is the positive force in my life, turning my negative world into a world of wonder and joy

"My Lord, thank you so much for sending Jesus as your image of love to atone for my sins. Today I confess Jesus as Lord and Saviour and I confess that you are my source and resource in life. Your love is all I need! Your love drives out all my fears. Your love is the positive force in my life, turning my negative world of fear into a world of wonder and joy. I claim the promises of your word (which are all a big fat positive AMEN, in Christ) and stand on the fact of your healing, provision and deliverance of all my fears and worries. You are my Lord and I love you with all my heart. Amen."
