GOD-TRACKING IS SINKING YOUR ROOTS DEEP INTO GODíS WORD IN SEARCH OF HIS LIVING WATER
The tender sapling beneath the great Oak was just one year old yet he knew well the taste of drought. As an acorn he had not fallen far from the mighty tree as it grew near the river. His young roots had quickly found living water and the acorn had germinated into a strapping young plant. But now, somehow, the riverís water seemed out of reach. There was only one thing the sapling could do: extend his roots deeper into the substrate of the earth in search of that life giving moisture.
A tree is comprised primarily of two sections, one above ground and the other beneath the surface. The leaves, branches and the trunk Ė the part we view as the tree Ė is only as secure and healthy as its root system. The roots collect both nutrients from the earth and water. You could say that the earth is its food while the water is its life. When dry seasons come along a tree will focus its energy on root development, digging deeper into the substrate of the earth to find more life giving moisture.
The scripture tells us that the man who walks honourably before God is like a tree planted by streams of water and that he delights in Godís word. As Christians we have been made righteous before God through Jesus. This means that, by Godís grace, you are that man who walks honourably before God. As such you are planted by streams of water; these streams are the living waters that Jesus spoke about in John 4. Scripture also says that man does not live by natural bread alone but by every word that God speaks, and Jesus is that Word - the bread of life.
Therefore, dear God-tracker, like that sapling, if you feel as though your river has dried up then sink your roots down deeper into the substrate of Godís word and draw living water from his Holy Spirit. And hereís the promise: you will yield your fruit in season your leaf will not wither and whatever you do will prosper!

ďLord it feels as though Iím going through a drought again. Like that sapling in todayís trACker I was originally planted alongside a mighty river but somehow it seems as though that river has dried up. But I know you havenít dried up, O Lord! So today I make a conscious decision to sink my roots deeper into your word that I may find that live giving moisture of your presence, Holy Spirit, once again. I will not take note of Satanís attempt to dry up the flow of your blessings but I will reach out deeper by faith into your promises. Lord I claim your blessings and your healing. Lord I claim your fullness and anointing on everything as I continue to acknowledge you in all I do. Thank you for your living water. Amen.Ē
