GOD-TRACKING IS TO KEEP MOVING WITH GOD ON YOUR JOURNEY OF LIFE
A few weeks back Karen and I decided to take a short break. We made plans to spend four days in a national park a short distance from our home. We set out early so that we could stop off at places of interest along the way but no sooner had we encountered the motorway than we found ourselves in bumper-to-bumper traffic! The M6 motorway in the British West Midlands can be like a car park at the best of times, and this day was no exception. In fact at one time we stopped for so long that the drivers around me turned off their car’s engines. We’d come to a total standstill. You see, in order to journey on holiday we needed to keep moving.
You know, so many of us set off on the road to God’s purposes with gusto but soon run out of steam and end up marooned along life’s highway. Take the young woman who surrendered her life to Jesus at the Billy Graham campaign, for example. She’d heard the gospel and put her faith in Jesus under the passion of the moment in the big top, but as soon as she hit the streets of the big city she drifted to a total spiritual standstill. And what about the middle-aged man who had heard the prompting of the Holy Spirit to lay his career down in order go into the pastorate, but he had wasted so much time thinking about it that he’d come to total a dead stop in his faith-walk. You see, in order to journey along God’s life track we need to keep moving.
Perhaps you find yourself at a spiritual standstill today. It could be that you were once passionate about serving Christ but the flame of zeal that set you ablaze has flickered and all but died out. Maybe you heard the call of God on your life several years back but the weeds of doubt and fear have grown up and are now choking the life out of God’s promises to you. Or it could be that, like so many of us, you have simply become complacent in your faith and find that you’re gaining no new ground in your walk with the Lord. If you find yourself at a standstill today then join me in taking the next exit from that backed-up highway you find yourself on and put your foot down to keep moving on your life’s journey.
God-tracking is to keep moving with God on your journey of life.
God bless you.
It’s all in the Book…

I want to get going and keep moving on this journey you have set before me
“Dear God, I realise today that I have been procrastinating in my Christian walk. I know I’ve heard your call on my life but I’ve wasted too much time thinking about it instead of stepping out in faith to keep moving on the journey you have set before me. I’m sorry Lord. Today I re-commit my life to you and passionately seek to take your route for my future. I praise you for your love and your grace; grace that saves me and grace that equips me. I want to get going and keep moving on this journey you have set before me. I love you Lord. Amen.”
