Blessed is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors.
When I grew up, we had a family pet dog called Nibs. Nibs was a cross boxer/ridgeback – a big old brown softie. I loved wrapping my arms around his thick neck and squeezing the life out of the poor mutt. He was a canine of great endurance. Like all dogs, Nibs loved food. Whenever I sat out in the garden eating a snack, he would sit watching my every move in the hope that I would drop him a crumb. He would fix his gaze intently on my hand holding the snack with ears pricked and eyes fixed. Left, right, up, down, whichever way I moved my hand Nibs would move his head in unison. My dog was waiting and watching his master’s every move, trusting that he would be rewarded for his enduring patience.
GodTracker is based on the concept that God knows the plans he has for us. In Jeremiah, we read, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” In Isaiah, we read that those who wait for the Lord will renew their strength and soar like an eagle. The word “wait” can be interchanged with “hope” or “watch with patience”. And Jesus instructs us to watch and pray.
Therefore, as we seek to explore the plans God knows he has for us – God’s will – we are exhorted to patiently watch every move of his hand, as a dog watches his master’s hand, in the hope of fulfilment. So, keep your eyes on Jesus and your nose in God’s Word. Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful with thanksgiving. Your Master has good things in store for you. Keep your eye on his hand.
God-tracking is watching your Master’s hand

I watch your hand for the fulfilment of your plans for my life
“Dear Abba Father, I know you have good plans for my life. I believe you reward those who seek you in faith. Thank you for the good things you have in store for me. Like a dog watching his master’s hand for a morsel, I watch your hand for the fulfilment of your plans for my life. Help me to be patient. Help me to be diligent and ready to move to follow your instructions. I keep my eyes on Jesus and, in prayer, my nose in your Word. Amen.”
