Dear God Tracker

God-Tracking Is Taking God Intended Detours

Karen and I recently visited the lovely Mediterranean island of Malta. From our hotel in Qawra we looked across St Paul’s Bay, the traditional shipwreck site of Paul the Apostle. I remember standing on Qawra Point looking out at the choppy Med thinking about that great story. Paul had been arrested in Jerusalem and had appealed to Caesar. On his way to Rome they were caught in a terrible storm and ultimately shipwrecked off the coast of Malta. By God’s grace and purpose, none of the 276 people on board was lost.

As I gazed out at the blue waters of the sea it occurred to me that the great Apostle had no intention of visiting Malta. In fact he’d probably not even heard of it. But God had a purpose in this detour. Twice Satan attempted to take Paul’s life, first by a shipwreck and then by snakebite. As the local people of that community watched Paul survive both attacks they were impacted by the power of God through Christ and brought their sick to be healed. Paul and his companions were unintentionally used beyond their own expectations to minister to these people, and the result… great revival – an incidental revival – which broke out on Malta the legacy of which is still found on that island today.

Tracking the God-track can seem a bit rocky at times, to say the least. The enemy of your soul will do everything he can to prevent God’s purposes from working out in your life. Sometimes you will find yourself on an unplanned path wondering how in the world you got there. As with Paul on Malta, you may find that God is working in and through you in ways you would never have imagined possible with no intent on your behalf. So if you’re facing shipwreck today, don’t be surprised if God turns it into the greatest voyage of your life. Keep acknowledging the Lord in all your ways and you may be destined for incidental revival!

God-tracking is taking God intended detours.

Every blessing

You Are My Guide on the Detours of Life

Pray
"O God my Lord, I acknowledge that you are Lord of my life. I confess that you are my guide and my shepherd. Lead me according to your plans and purposes even when they seem to contradict what I have planned for my life. Help me to deal with this seeming shipwreck and help me to see your purpose in it all. Even if I impact one life on this diversion, O Lord, it is worth it. I commit my future to you and seek your will in every setback I face. You are my guide on the detours of life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
