Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS FILLING YOUR MOUTH WITH GOD'S WORD AND THEN WATCHING HOW HE FULFILS IT

Jeremiah 1:12
Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it."

Yong Jeremiah was stunned as he sat on a rock outside the gates of Anathoth, his home town. He was of the tribe of Levi, which meant he would soon be ordained a priest in the house of Israel. He'd gone for a walk and sat down to think about his future when, all of a sudden the Word of God came to him, "Jeremiah, son of Hilkiah, before you were even conceived or born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."

"Ah, Lord God! How so? I'm still young and, anyway, I wouldn't know what to say."

But God replied to Jeremiah and said that he need not worry about being too young to become a prophet. He added that he would always be with him; he had nothing to fear. Then the Lord touched his mouth and said, "See, I have put my Words in your mouth."

It was then that Jeremiah had his first vision. He saw an almond tree branch, of all things. I could imagine he was rather puzzled at this.

"What do you see, Jeremiah?" asked the Lord. "I see er an almond branch, Lord," he replied. "You have seen correctly, young man. You see, I will be watching over my Word to perform it in your life."

Jeremiah understood immediately why he'd seen an almond branch. It was clear to him, a Hebrew speaker. When God used the Hebrew term for almond he would have said, shaw-kade. And then when he said watching he would have used the Hebrew word, shaw-kad. God was using a pun to instil confidence in young Jeremiah that he would always fulfil the Word he had put in Jeremiah's mouth. So, every time the young prophet saw an almond tree (which are prolific in Israel) or crunched an almond nut between his teeth he would remember God's promise that he was watching over his Word in his mouth to perform it.

When I began preaching, many years back, I felt a little like young Jerry. I had no confidence in myself that I would ever deliver a sermon to a group of hungry believers with any measure of success. However, the week before I was due to take my first church service I was reading a leadership magazine. I don't remember what the article was about or who wrote it but, these words jumped off the page right into my heart: "You may think you'll run out of words to speak every Sunday when you preach. But take courage, like with Jeremiah, God will put his Word in your mouth and he will watch over it to cause it to impact those who hear it."

You may not feel called to be a preacher but God has called you to share your faith. We are all called to all the world through the Great Commission Jesus gave us. Are you afraid of what you will say when the opportunity arrives? Don't be afraid, just pray. God will put his Word in your mouth. And it's not your job to convince anyone of the Gospel. The Holy Spirit himself will watch over what you say to ensure it bears fruit in the hearts of those who hear it. Jesus said, "For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."

God-tracking is filling your mouth with God's Word and then watching how he fulfils it

Go for it!

READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Jeremiah 1:1-12
Matthew 28:16-20
Matthew 10:19-20


Don't Give Up, Look Up!

I will boldly go where you send me and speak out the words you put in my mouth

Pray
"Ah Lord, I often feel inadequate to share your Word. I feel I'm too young or not educated enough. But I realise now that you both create opportunity for me to witness and put the words in my mouth when the opportunity arrives. Thank you that you watch over your Word to perform it. I believe you're watching over every promise you've ever given me and you're watch over every word I speak, in your name. It's not up to me to action your Word; I believe that is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit. So I will boldly go where you send me and speak out the words you put in my mouth. Amen."
