“Place your unconditional trust squarely in the hands of your Guide and his Map and then have faith that the plans he knows he has for you, will succeed.”
“… And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
I remember trekking a short distance across a desert with my wife, Karen on a trip to Jordan. Our tour bus had parked up at a carpark and we were required to walk the rest of the way to a desolate desert spot, chosen by our guide, to reveal what the Negev desert was really like. After walking a few minutes, we lost sight of the bus and our destination was yet unseen. Everything looked the same. From where I stood, I had 360 degrees of opportunity. The journey was tedious, uneventful and seemingly void of progress. If it weren’t for our guide and the map his hand, I fear we’d be lost in the wilderness. I had placed my trust in his hands. I needed to have faith in him as our guide, the map in his hand. And I needed to have faith in his plan to deliver us safely to our destination.
Sometimes, trekking the plans of God can lead us through a seemingly desolate wilderness: the end of an era or the start of a new career; a move away from familiar friends or social environment; an unexpected change in ministry or church life. When this happens, we lose perspective; we lose sight of the old familiar pathways whilst still out of sight of the ultimate endpoint. The truth is, once we have seen the fulfilment of one goal, we need to be prepared to leave it behind and follow our Guide and his Map until we arrive at the new yet unseen destination.
Acknowledge the Lord in all your ways and he will direct your life’s track. First, look for his purposes and principles and then believe that he will add all the resources you’ll ever need to achieve your goals. Place your unconditional trust squarely in the hands of your Guide and his Map and then have faith that plans he knows he has for you, will succeed.
God-tracking is trekking with faith in the plans God knows he has for you.
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I have faith in your plans, even though I can’t see the goal from where I stand today.
“Dear Lord, I feel like I’m in a wilderness. There has been so much change in my life that I feel I’ve lost my way. Yet, I believe your hand is on me. I believe that these changes in my life are of you, so I commit my future to you. Help me to aim for your plans, though I can’t yet see the target. I truly acknowledge you in my work, my home life, my ministry, my relationships, my finances and my ambitions. I seek first your purposes and acknowledge you in every part of this journey. O Lord, I place my total confidence in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the map of your word. I have faith in your plans, even though I can’t see the goal from where I stand today. Amen.”
