GOD-TRACKING IS WAITING FOR GOD TO FULFILL HIS PLANS FOR YOU
Psalm 25:21 May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for you.
GodTracker is all about seeking and remaining on track with God’s plans and purposes, even when those plans seem to take us the long way round. When I once asked God why he seemingly allowed difficulties into my life or took me on a road that seemed to lead nowhere, he simply replied, “As long as you acknowledge me in all your ways, you’ll remain on course with my will.”
David was a man who knew this fact well. While he was still a boy, God empowered him to rescue his people from a formidable enemy, by killing the giant Philistine, Goliath. Shortly afterward, the prophet Samuel anointed David king of Israel. However, King Saul, who was still on the throne, violently opposed David’s anointing. As a result, Saul was intent on killing young David. But, David was a man of integrity with his heart set on tracking the plans of God. It was years before David eventually came to the throne of Israel, though he was its rightful king. I could well imagine David thinking, “Dear Yahweh, I’ve acknowledged you all my life, why are you taking me the long way round?” Then he might have written, “To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.”
Wherever you may find yourself on this track we call the Christian life, be encouraged, God is with you every step of the way. Like David, wait on God as you wait for God to direct your path according to his great plan. The Lord will lead you in his truth and guide you according to his perfect will, as you continue to acknowledge him in all your ways. Keep your heart humble and your eyes on Jesus. As David wrote, “Who is the man who fears the Lord? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.”
God-tracking is waiting for God to fulfill his plans for you.
