Dear God Tracker

Stop Cluttering the Prayer-Waves With Clanging & Banging and Submissively Listen to Godís Heart

Prayer is a two way street: us talking to God and God talking to us. Sometimes, however, we forget this and end up making so much noise with our petitions and requests that we donít hear what the Holy Spirit is trying to say to us. Itís like asking a passerby for directions to the bus stop without giving him a moment answer in before we say goodbye and move off on our blissfully ignorant way, none the wiser.

I once gave a demonstration of how Godís experience of some of our prayer times may be. I asked our church drummer to climb behind his kit and perform his best drum solo while I tried to read a Psalm to the people. Of course, as you can well imagine, the congregation heard none of what I was saying, because the noise behind me was too great! Sometimes our words are just like clanging cymbals and banging drums. We often just make a big noise in prayer and not truly seek Godís heart in our situations. And then we often assume to speak for God, too. We tend to believe that we have heard his word when in fact all we have heard are our own opinions!

Dear God Tracker, as we seek to track Godís plans for our lives let us keep our eyes on Jesus and our spiritual ears open to what he is saying to us in prayer. Often the Holy Spirit will rest a gentle impression in our hearts or open the scriptures to us during prayer but to hear these words, we need to be still and know that he is God. (By the way, being still does not necessarily mean being quiet but it does mean ceasing from all human effort to attain Godís will.) So, letís submit to his will and get out from under his feet and into his hands. Let us stop assuming that God has spoken when in fact he is silent and let us stop blaming God for being silent when in fact it is we who are not listening. Letís stop cluttering the prayer-waves with clanging and banging and submissively listen to Godís heart.

God-tracking is listening for Godís voice.

Blessings

Dudley

Fight My Fights

Exodus 14:14

Pray
ďO Lord I have so many issues in my life at the moment that I donít know which to deal with first. I realise that I have cluttered my days with too many activities and well meaning works but I fear that I have not heard your will in it all. Forgive me for not being still before you so as to hear your directions for me. I want to do so just now, as I wait on you to fight my fights, In Jesus nameÖĒ
