Dear God-tracker


Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Some say that God never uses physical dimensions when guiding us and that he only guides us through spiritual means. Indeed, God does guide us in spiritual ways: the still small voice of his Spirit in our hearts, an anointed word from Scripture or even through dreams and visions. However, God also uses literal physical incidents to guide us in our choices for living.

In the early 1990s, my wife and I had sensed the Lord's guidance calling us to leave family and friends in South Africa and move to a new country. We'd had a notion that God was going to move us for some time and were knocking on doors around the world. Eventually a potential opportunity opened for us in the Midlands of England. After much prayer and God seeking, in faith, we felt it was time to sell our house and make plans to move. However, Karen loved our home and still had some reservations about moving.

One afternoon Karen was walking down the long gated driveway of our home in Pretoria praying, "Dear Lord, I'm still not certain about selling up to move to the UK. Do you really want us to sell this house and move?" Just then there was a gust of wind. The weather was good that day; the wind came from nowhere. As small white A5 handbill blew over the gate and landed at her feet. "Oh, this junk-mail gets in everywhere," Karen thought as she picked up the leaflet to discard it. Her eyes caught the bold print at the top of the page: It's Time to Sell You House. Karen was mesmerised. How could this ever be a coincidence? She had just spoken these words to God in prayer and now she read them in black and white on the piece of paper in her hand.

Gideon in the Bible asked God for a literal confirmation of his calling on his life. He put out a sheep's fleece one night and asked God to wet it with dew and prevent the ground around it from being wet. He did this to test that what he sensed God was saying was correct. The next morning all the ground around the fleece was dry but the fleece was very wet. Gideon might have thought this result was a coincidence so he asked God to reverse the process the next night. Sure enough, the next morning the fleece was dry and the ground was wet. God made his point and Gideon obeyed God's call with great effect.

Coincidence never occurs in prayer. God is sovereign and omniscient. If he can use the sun and the moon to confirm his Word, then he can use even tiny literal incidents in your life to communicate his plans to you. Don't underestimate God's ability to use the obvious or mundane to guide you. Try not to confine your opinion of how God speaks to only one format. God is sovereign and omniscient and he will do whatever he chooses to do to get his message through to you. His ways are not like our ways; they are often contrary to our human reason. So, in seeking the plans that God has for you, open your heart to his higher ways and simply expect him to speak.

God-tracking is expecting God to always confirm his guidance in your life

Fix your eyes on Jesus


Jeremiah 29:11
Judges 6:36-40
Isaiah 55:9-11

WATCH OUT FOR --- The Reality

Don't Give Up, Look Up!

I pray that you will speak to me and confirm your Word to me in ways that will clearly reveal your will for my life.

"Dear sovereign Lord, forgive me for ignoring the obvious confirmations of your Word to me. I believe that you are wise and your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. So, I humbly submit my reasoning to your sovereign wisdom. I pray that you will speak to me and confirm your Word to me in ways that will clearly reveal your will for my life. I commit my every decision to you. I commit my every ambition to you. Help me to be observant and clearly see or hear the ways you choose to confirm your plans for my future. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen."

What is GodTracker?
GodTracker is a weekly e-mail devotional based on the premise that God has a plan for our lives. His word calls us to seek his will by acknowledging him in all our ways and tracking this plans in faith.

GodTracker owes its origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, On Track. Although On Track went off-air in 2005, GodTracker has continued to help people to track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
