Dear God-tracker 

There once was a man who cared for the two orphaned sons of his brother after their parents died in a motor accident. Paul was a kindly uncle who treated both of his nephews fairly, with love and respect. As the boys grew it became clear that the younger lad was more adventurous than the older. He would squander his pocket money and often fall prey to foul play at school. Uncle Paul would often need to call the youngster to account and council him on the hazards of wild living. Paul spent hours praying for and talking to the younger brother, however, loved both of these boys equally. 

Through time, as they grew into young men, the older brother began to complain that his sibling was Paul’s favourite. “You’re always spending time with Roger,” he said, “you never seem to notice anything I do. I worked hard at school to earn your favour; I’ve never been involved in anything untoward and I’ve set about to follow a commendable career. Yet, it seems, you don’t even know what I’m doing with my life.”  

“Ah Peter, you’re right,” replied his uncle. “I have put a great deal of effort into your brother’s upbringing, but he needed my guidance more than you did. I love you just as much as I love him. It doesn’t mean that, because I paid more attention to Roger, that I have ignored you. I have watched you with pride and know about everything you’ve ever set your hand to do. I know you more than you know yourself and will always, always be there for you when you need me.” 

Sometimes this scenario often plays out in our relationship with Father God. I don’t know about you but I often find myself complaining to God that he doesn’t pay enough attention to me. I find that I compare myself to others at church or in the family and think that God is unaware of all the good things I do in life. When those around me are in need I witness how God provides for them. When those around me are going astray I notice how the Holy Spirit draws them back to God’s word. Well, what about me? Has God forgotten all about me? Does he even know me or see what I do? Are my ways hidden from the Lord? 

In the days of calamity, when Israel was faced with foes on every side, they witnessed what seemed to be God’s favour visited upon their enemies. Israel complained, “My way is hidden from the Lord; my cause is disregarded by my God.” Yet The Lord reaffirms through the prophet Isaiah that he, who does not grow weary, is full of understanding. And then there was King David. He was a man who served the Lord with integrity yet he too witnessed how others around him seemed to be blessed by God. But then he says, “You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.”  

God the omnipresent and omniscient One does know all about you, dear God-tracker! He knows when you rise and when you fall. He knows your needs and your wants. He knows your achievements, your failures, your disappointments and your joys. It may seem to you that he takes no notice of you and seems to bless others around you, but know this: God knows even the very number of hairs on your head! Rest assured today that the Lord your God knows precisely where you are on your track of life and he is walking along with you every step of the way. So try not to compare your life to those around you; if God is their God then he will call them to account for their own lives. Just keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and your ears open to his command. 

God-tracking is knowing that God personally knows your every movement.

I believe… you are personally involved in every aspect of my life 

“Heavenly Father, I realise now that you know all there is to ever know about me. Thank you that you care for me, even when it seems that you’re silent. In fact, it’s when you’re silent that I believe I have no reason for concern, because it’s at those times that I am walking quietly within your will. Help me to not compare my life to others’ lives and I’m sorry if I’ve ever done so. I believe and confess that you are my personal Lord and Saviour and, as such, you are personally involved in every aspect of my life. Amen.”
