Dear God-tracker


Hebrews 12:2
looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

I was thinking about this whole concept of tracking God’s will, the other day, and found myself wondering if Jesus was a God-tracker. The Bible makes it clear that God has good works for us to do that he has prepared in advance. It’s true, Jesus is the Son of God, but Jesus is also the Son of Man. God is spiritual, invisible, eternal and can never die. However, you and I are physical and not eternal and, because of sin, we will all die an everlasting death. This is why God sent Jesus as a man. But Jesus was no ordinary man – he is God/Man. That is, Jesus is the physical representation of the spiritual, invisible and eternal God. But he had to also be man so that he could take the consequence of our sin and die. Jesus died for all sin but, because he is sinless, he physically rose from the dead. And this was God’s good work he prepared in advance for the man, Jesus. Yes, Jesus was indeed, a God-tracker and his track led to Calvary!

I think we often forget, while Jesus walked on the earth as Emmanuel, he was fully human!  He had a normal human body, he had normal human emotions and a normal human will, just like you and me. We also read that Jesus grew in wisdom and stature. This implies that, apart from his perfect, sinless supernatural character and Spirit (which is God the Son), Jesus the Son of Man still needed to study the scriptures, pray to the Father and discover God’s purposes for his natural life. This is why we read that he had the choice to follow or to reject God’s will in the Garden of Gethsemane. However, I praise God that Jesus did not reject the Father’s plan for him to go to the cross. Christ went through with the good work God had prepared in advance for him, and he died for our sins.

The Bible tells us that Jesus is the author and perfecter of our faith and that we are to set our eyes on him. In other words, Jesus Christ is our example – our role model – in our effort to be obedient to God’s will in tracking his plan for our lives.

God-tracking is following Jesus’ example

Don’t Give Up, Look Up!

Help me to keep my eyes on his example and to walk by faith in the good works that you have prepared in advance

 “Oh Father, thank you so much that Jesus came as a normal man to bare my sin on the cross. I praise you that he was sinless and death could not hold onto him. Jesus rose from the dead! However, I realise now that Jesus had every natural opportunity to reject your will for his life but he did not. In the natural, Jesus continued to acknowledge you and track your eternal plans for his physical life. Help me to keep my eyes on his example and to walk by faith in the good works that you have prepared in advance for me to do, just as he did. Dear Lord, I surrender my life to tracking your perfect will. Amen.”
