GOD-TRACKING IS TRUSTING GOD TO MEET YOUR NEEDS NOT YOUR MEANS
I remember when I was made redundant from my job I thought about how it happens to many people but I thought it would never happen to me. I was not earning a great deal at the time but when that final paycheque ran out, things got tough! My lovely wife was earning an income at the time but it was just not sufficient to see us through each month. So we prayed.
I remember how our needs were met in the most amazing ways. Some dear friends helped us, because they knew of our needs, but it was the times that we received provision from sources that had absolutely no concept of our struggle that were the times that truly amazed me. Funny thing was, I was never able to tally up the numbers. It seemed that God paid no attention to how much cash we needed to get through the month, only to getting us through the month. I am yet to reconcile the quantity of Godís provision with the means to meet that quantity. Godís ways are not our ways and his means not our means.
Donít be surprised after seeking Godís provision for a particular need, when he begins to provide in ways you would never have expected. For instance, you may be in financial need and receive an anonymous envelope, but donít be disillusioned by a small amount inside. The amount is immaterial; the simple fact that you received a provision is paramount. God knows your needs Ė how much you need Ė and will always meet that need, provided you continue to keep your eyes on Jesus and walk in the faith that this generates. Your God knows your needs and your God is big enough to tally the numbers in order to meet that need. If you are a Christian believer then you are found in Christ. The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs by his riches in Christ. You see, you are in the same place as Godís richesÖ in Christ!
God-tracking is trusting God to meet your needs not your means.
Keep your eyes on Jesus
Itís all in the BookÖ
2 Corinthians 1:19-20

ďMy Father, thank you for always meeting my needs. I realise that itís not how much I need that matters but rather how you provide my needs that does. You are my source and my resource. Not only are you the means of my provision but you are my provision! Help me to walk in faith that you will meet these needs I have today, as I keep my eyes on Jesus. Help me not to question the means of your provision but to just walk in the joy of your provision. I know you know how much I need to get through tomorrow. Today I simply put my faith in you to get me through tomorrow. In the name of Jesus my Lord, I pray. Amen.Ē
