Psalm 37:23,24 (KJV)
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

Corrie Ten Boom said, “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” I have personally found there is a difference between trusting God and having faith in God. Have no doubt, faith pleases God and we need to walk in faith. But trust is slightly different to faith.

Scripture tells us that faith is the confidence in things hoped for. The word hope implies things yet to come. Indeed, faith is confidence that God will hear our cries for help for those things that we yet need. The scriptures make it plain that God will meet our needs and heal our bodies. God has promised to meet all our needs when we pray in faith, and he does. Yet, there are those times when we cry out to God in faith but he seems to remain silent. This is where faith gives way to trust. Faith is confidence in God’s action while trust is confidence in God’s inaction.

God-tracking is based on the fact that God has plans for our lives. To follow God’s plans, we need to seek his will. To walk in God’s will we need to acknowledge God in all our ways. When we do this, we relinquish control of our lives to the Lord’s direction. Our God is high and exalted. Our God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. He is our sovereign Majesty. His character is supreme, his power unlimited and his will is paramount. Therefore, we can trust that he is in control. You can trust the Lord with all your hearts and not lean on your own understanding, even when it seems he is silent.

So, whatever dilemma you are facing today, call on him and have faith that God will act on your behalf. And when it seems he does not act, simply trust him. He is in control, always. And we know that all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose.

God-tracking is trusting God knows what he is doing

Therefore, I will simply trust that you are in control and that you will meet my needs in your time, just in time

“O Lord I need your help! I feel like I’m drowning. I have been calling on you, night and day, for your touch but it seems you are silent. Yet, I know you hear me. I know you know what I face today. I do have faith, O God, that you will meet my needs as I make my requests with thanksgiving. You are faithful and you will do it. However, I see no action, yet. Therefore, I will simply trust that you are in control and that you will meet my needs in your time, just in time. Praise your name. Amen. ”
