GOD-TRACKING IS MEASURING YOUR FAITH FOR TOMORROW BY HIS WORD
Did you know that it takes faith to breathe? How can I be sure that there will still be sufficient oxygen with every new breath I take? By some freak of nature all the oxygen in the atmosphere might cease to exist before my next breath. Yikes! By the Holy Spirit Paul writes in Romans 12 that we should have a sober judgement of ourselves according to the measure of faith that God has given us. Indeed, each person on earth has a measure of faith. Therefore, by the measure of faith that God has given me I breathe in the confidence that there will be sufficient oxygen to keep me alive.
Paul begins this discussion by reminding us to modify our thinking from the pattern of the world by the renewal of our minds. Sadly, although we take certain measures of faith for granted (like breathing or sitting on a chair), when it comes to having confidence in the guidance of an inaudible and invisible God of love, we flounder around like headless chickens. Scripture tells us to live by faith and not by sight. It also says that if we come to God and seek his guidance in faith then he will reward us.
Unfortunately, the world has formatted our minds to expect the worse or doubt that we can make sensible life decisions, because we can’t see into the future. Indeed, I can’t see into tomorrow, but God can! I know that he is there already making provision, opening some doors and closing others according to his plans and purposes for my life. However, all I can see is today. This is why I need to renew the way I look at my tomorrow by filling my mind with the promises and directions of God’s word. And faith comes from hearing the word of God.
If you’re facing a daunting decision or seeking guidance for prospective choices you’re making then you’ll need to renew your thinking about tomorrow. By the word of God you have an increasing measure of faith. So pray and ask the Lord God Almighty to help you make those decisions and to provide for your tomorrow. Then go ahead and make that decision using your measure of faith.
God-tracking is measuring your faith for tomorrow by his word.
It’s all in the Book…

I pledge myself to make the decisions
“Dear Father, I want to thank you for my measure of faith. Thank you that I can live and breathe in the knowledge that you hold my tomorrow in your hands. Thank you for your word that increases my faith. Help me to read it more and to hear your directions for my future. In faith today I pledge myself to make the decisions that I’m faced with according to your perfect will for my life. Let everything work out well in accordance with your purposes and provision. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.”
