Dear God Tracker
God-Tracking Is Wisely Following God-Opportunities with Peace of Mind
I was attending a pastorsí gathering the other day when an acquaintance came up to me. ďI just want to let you know that I have taken up a new position in a church 20 miles away,Ē he said. I was amazed because I knew Jim to be very settled in his old church and did not expect him to move. As if reading my thoughts he went on, ďItís not that I was unsettled or anything, I just had a sense God was moving me. I was advised to apply to another church but I did not have peace about it. Then this opportunity opened up and everything has just fallen into place.Ē
I could see the joy and expectation in Jimís eyes as he explained how the Lord had worked out all the details of his move. God had already prepared the hearts and circumstances of his old church and raised someone up to take his place. His family is young so a move to a new town would be relatively easy. And every detail of his new appointment had been worked out as if he had written the script himself. You see, Jim had acknowledged God, sought his will through Word and Spirit and had kept his heartís motives pure as he planned the move. This is God-tracking at its best.
Perhaps you are feeling the pull of God to move on. It could be that he has opened a new opportunity for you but you are uncertain as to whether it is the right one for you. Like my friend Jim, be encouraged to pray for Godís hand upon every detail of that move. Seek Godís plans and not your own, with the wisdom that comes from above. This wisdom begins with purity. Check your heartís motives for making that move. You may well gain from the changes you face but be sure that it is Godís will you seek and not selfish ambition. Beware of that prowling lion who will cloud your judgement with seemingly delightful propositions. Remember, the Holy Spirit will always give you a transcending peace when you find his will for you.
God-tracking is wisely following God-opportunities with peace of mind.

Surrender My Benefits For the Sake of Your Blessings
ďFather God, thank you so much for the wonderful opportunities you have given me in the past. I have been so blessed to be part of your plans so far. However, I sense you are moving me on. Lord, I donít know where you are moving me to, but help me to hear your voice and follow your plans for my life as I move forward. I acknowledge you in the prospects on my horizon and seek your perfect will for me and my loved ones. Whatever the future holds, I trust you to direct my paths that I may walk in your exclusive purposes for me. I turn away from selfish ambition and surrender my benefits for the sake of your blessings. Thank you for your peace, which passes understanding and help me to be content wherever you lead. In Jesusí name I pray. Amen.Ē
