GOD-TRACKING IS WILLINGLY TRACKING GODâS GLORIOUS NEWNESS
by Dudley Anderson
1/17/2020 / Devotionals
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land
I am a very nostalgic person. I don’t take lightly to change, particularly if that change means letting go of something I have always enjoyed. However, the scriptures tell us that God is the God of the new: in him, we are new creations; the Blood of Jesus is our new covenant and he leads us into new things, hidden things that we have not known. This does not, for one minute imply that God changes his mind or is inconsistent in any way. It does, however, imply that God is infinite and omniscient. In his foreknowledge he knows our frailty and fickleness and that we consistently require to change to grow in the knowledge of his will.
I recently endured a lifechanging event that compelled me to let go of an old dream and aspire to new things. Due to my reluctance to change, I yearned after my previous position to the point of nausea. I would open my eyes every morning with the wake-up-blues. You know the feeling – waking from a dream of the old days, you miserably mope for minutes before getting up, hankering back to the old season. Indeed, when God brought the changes into my life (and being convinced that God had brought the changes) I was obedient to follow his altered directing of my path, for I never fail to acknowledge him in all my ways. However, though obedient, I was not willing to change.
Listen to God’s word to you today: “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” Note that: willing and obedient. God knows what he is doing in your life. He has eternal foreknowledge of your whole lifespan. If you continually acknowledge God in all your ways, he will direct your life track; and it is God’s will that matters. When God closes one door, he will open another, in his time. Sometimes, however, God closes one activity or involvement only to revive an old one and make it new. The scripture promises that if we willingly and obediently submit to the newness of God’s purposes then we will eat the good of the land – we will prosper!
Someone has said that science has come up with a term to describe an organism that never changes. That call it… dead! I learnt in a recent experience that God’s new is always new and his new is a living, breathing “new”. The key to remaining in God’s perfect progressive will is being willing to obediently change.
God-tracking is willingly tracking God’s glorious newness.
SO, DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I choose now to accept the changes you have instigated and willingly submit to following your new plans for me
“Dear Lord, I realise now that I have been hankering after past dreams and aspirations; things that you have shut down in my life. Forgive me, O Lord. I choose now to accept the changes you have instigated and willingly submit to following your new plans for me. I believe you know the plans you have for me, but I don’t. Therefore, I acknowledge you in all my ways and trust you to work all things out for my good and your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”
