GOD-TRACKING IS MAKING THE MOST OF THE JOURNEY
The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
I often talk about the A to Z of Christian living. That is, how, on the track of life, God seldom takes us from point A to B to C and then to point D. More often than not he guides our path from A to B to C and then off to X and Y. But, before we make it to point Z we find ourselves back on the track to point D. I’ve experienced this phenomenon in my life, many times, and wondered why God allows this. Over time I have found that what really matters in the trek of life, is not the destination of the journey, but rather the journey itself. It’s on the journey that God works out all things for our good.
Jeremiah was God’s prophet at the time of the Babylonian conquest of Judah and the subsequent captivity. He prophesied to a rebellious people that they would suffer the wrath of God. As a result, he was severely abused and ostracised. Jeremiah cried out to God, “Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all who are treacherous thrive?” On his track of life, old Jerry found himself delayed and dejected. Indeed, it took la lifetime before he saw the fulfilment of his calling as a prophet. In his reply to Jeremiah’s complaint, God said, “If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses?”
You may have questions for God like Jeremiah had. You may have hopes and dreams that seem to keep being delayed. You may find yourself on a detour today, but be encouraged to enjoy the journey, as you seek to track the plans and purposes of God. God does have a plan for you; a plan for a future filled with hope and wellbeing. However, God’s plan is not a destination, it’s a journey. On this journey, as you seek God, you will grow in faith and patience. On this journey, as you seek God, you will be impacted by people and impact others, likewise. In fact, even the very seeking of the plans of God fulfills his purpose for you, because all things work together for the good of those who are called according to his purpose. You see, it’s in the process of running life’s detours where God will develop in you the strength and stamina to run with horses.
God-tracking is making the most of the journey
Don’t Give Up, Look Up!
Help me keep my eyes on Jesus at all times and grow fit in faith and patience as I enjoy life’s detours
“Heavenly Father, thank you that you have a plan and a purpose for my life. Thank you that, as I acknowledge you in all my ways, all my ways will work out according to your plan. Your plan is not a destination; it’s a journey. Help me to travel well. Help me keep my eyes on Jesus at all times and grow fit in faith and patience as I enjoy life’s detours. I commit my current situation to you and pray that I will impact those around me, in your name. I pray too, that I will be positively impacted by the people in my life, every step of the way. Amen.”

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 track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
