“Every breath you take is a new breath. You cannot live on old air. God is a God of the new. In Christ you are a new creation, all things have become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

The interesting thing about a prophetic word is, it endures. Prophecies written thousands of years ago still apply to your and my life today. For instance, when prophesying to the people of God about their return from exile, the prophet Isaiah used the phrase “new things” several times, saying things like, “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Today, you and I can read these words and receive them personally, for God’s word endures forever.

The gift of prophecy did not cease to exist at the completion of the writing of the Old or New Testaments. Prophecy, as a gift of the Holy Spirit, is still in operation in the Church today for the common good. God gave me a prophetic word several years ago. He said, “I am doing a new thing. I am sifting, sorting, threshing and pressing. What grape in a winepress can withstand the pressing? Each is pressed with each to produce one new pleasing wine.”

Perhaps that’s a word for you today. The Lord is sifting his Church. He is threshing us like wheat to remove the dross of compromise, complaint and criticism. The Lord is pressing us into a new form – a new meld – to flow together in harmony, humility and grace for his pleasure. God is doing a new thing in your life. It may be uncomfortable but, in the end, you will be supremely blessed. He will meet your needs, as he has promised. He will guide your steps, as he has promised. If you humble yourself, he will raise you to new heights, as he has promised.

Every breath you take is a new breath. You cannot live on old air. God is a God of the new. In Christ you are a new creation, all things have become new. So, take a fresh new breath and pray, “Lord, whatever it takes, do a new thing in me today.”

God-tracking is embracing the new.

SO, DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY

“Sort me, Lord, thresh me, Lord and press me, Lord to fit your plan for my life.”

“Heavenly Father, I know your word endures forever. Thank you for the prophecies in the Bible that I can take to heart today, in a new way. I believe you are doing a new thing in my life; I perceive it. Sort me, Lord, thresh me, Lord and press me, Lord to fit your plan for my life. I acknowledge you in every aspect of my life and future and trust that you will direct my path according to the plans you know you have for me. Amen.”

Boldly Following His Fiery Call

“Know this, he who called you is faithful and he will give you the boldness to take on the world.”

Proverbs 28:1
The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.

Be bold
Be strong
For the Lord you God is with you

Words from an old chorus written by Morris Chapman that we used to sing in church. I remember the vigour this old song gave me…

I am not afraid
I am not dismayed
Because I'm walking in faith and victory
Come on and walk in faith and victory
For the Lord your God is with you

It’s been said, “Could it be that when we are bold enough to step away from our safety nets and into the 'fire' of God’s call, this is when we’re most likely to encounter Him?” The call of God can be a fire. Indeed, just ask Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

When confronted to choose between the fire of God’s call or rejecting the plans of God they replied, “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.” They boldly rebutted the command of Nebuchadnezzar to bow to a golden image and were thrown headlong into a fiery furnace. In their boldness to follow God’s call, they encountered his might to deliver them from the fire. These three chaps walked in faith and victory because the Lord their God was with them.

Are you facing the fire of God’s call? Perhaps opposition to this call has presented itself to you, leaving you feeling desolate and disillusioned. Know this, he who called you is faithful and he will give you the boldness to take on the world. In Christ, no weapon formed against you will succeed, in him, you have authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing shall by any means hurt you.

So, be bold be strong, the Lord your God is with you.

God-tracking is boldly following God’s fiery call.

“Dear God, thank you for the victory of the cross of Christ. He made a spectacle of the forces of darkness when he triumphed over them in it. I stand in that victory, today. I lay claim to the word of God that assures me that I have power over all the opposition of Satan. In the name of Jesus, all opposition to your call on my life will bow. Help me O Lord, to rest under the shadow of your wings and follow your fiery call. Amen.”

When the Righteous Cry Out

https://soundcloud.com/godtracker/gtwd-210-god-tracking-is-claiming-the-promises-of-the-righteous

“He who is in you (by his righteousness) is greater than any catastrophe this world could ever throw at you. Life may seem impossible and complicated for you at this time, but Jesus will deliver you from all your troubles.”

Psalm 34:17
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.

If you’re anything like me then, when you read scriptures promising the righteous person good things, you think, “That’s not me. I try to live a good life but I don’t consider myself to be righteous.” But listen to what God’s word says:

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (Read the scriptures below.)

If you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord then you are in Christ. If you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord then you are a new creation, the old life of sin has been crucified with Christ and the life you now live you live by faith in what he accomplished at Calvary. Jesus was ascribed your sin on the cross so that you could be ascribed God’s righteousness, by faith. You have been saved (delivered) from sin to be made righteous by God’s grace through faith. You are not righteous by your own works. Therefore, it’s not your righteousness that qualifies you to stand on the promises of God. It’s God’s righteousness in you, through Christ, that qualifies you to stand on the promises of God.

When you cry out to him, he hears you. The moment you, righteous child of God, call out to Abba, he brings you relief. There is no pain, no calamity, no crisis greater than the blessings of your God and Father. He who is in you (by his righteousness) is greater than any catastrophe this world could ever throw at you. Life may seem impossible and complicated for you at this time, but Jesus will deliver you from all your troubles. All of God’s promises are yes and amen in Christ for you, O righteous child of God.

God-tracking is claiming the promises of the righteous

Today I stand on all your promises made to the righteous person, by faith, in the knowledge that you have removed my unrighteousness and have imputed me with your righteousness. I stand on all your promises in Jesus’ name and trust that you will help me through every calamity of life. Amen.”

“A person who walks in integrity and uprightness places his hope in the provision and guidance of the Lord. And here’s the promise: When a righteous man walks in integrity his children are blessed after him.”

Proverbs 20:7
The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.

Let’s say you were an expert at flower arranging and had a fine bouquet of delicate flowers to arrange. If you were offered an ornate mink vase with a hole in its base or an old plastic milk bottle without a hole in it, to arrange your bouquet in, which would you choose? If you chose the vase, all the water would leak out and the flowers would quickly wilt. If you chose the milk bottle, your bouquet might not look as presentable but at least the flowers would survive. Though opulent and visually appealing, the mink vase lacked the integrity of the old plastic milk bottle.

Integrity is defined as the quality of being truthful with strong principles; the state of being whole and undivided. Jesus lived a life of integrity. He is called the way the truth and the life. He said things like, “If you abide in my word, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The Word of God is our standard of integrity.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to live a lifestyle of integrity. Living with integrity does not imply that you will be appealing to the world. Living with integrity does not imply that you will be the most popular kid on the block or the life of every party. But living with integrity will make you dependable and trustworthy. Living with integrity means being willing to admit to your weaknesses and being willing to bare insult and criticism for standing for the truth. People will always return to a person of integrity because they know they have no axe to grind. People of integrity hold the water.

A person who walks with integrity walks securely. A person who walks in integrity and uprightness places his hope in the provision and guidance of the Lord. And here’s the promise: When a righteous man walks with integrity his children are blessed after him.

God-tracking is walking with integrity.

“Your source is God’s riches in glory in Christ Jesus. You are his little one and he knows that you need all these things.”

Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Just like the ebb and flow of many phenomena in nature, so the economics of humanity ebbs and flows with regularity. We’re all happy when the world markets flow but panic when there is a global economic ebb.

As followers of Jesus Christ, we don’t place our confidence in man’s monetary management. Jesus was a great economist. He addressed the issues of everyday needs by saying things like, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on,” adding “your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” By the Holy Spirit Apostle Paul wrote, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

Indeed, stock markets are teetering, pension schemes are wobbling and currency markets are fluctuating but our confidence is not in such things. Our confidence is in the Creator. At a time of economic upheaval, don’t give up, look up and set your mind on things above not on earthly things. Lift up your eyes. Your help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.

I encourage you this week, during the global economic crisis, to trust God to continually meet your needs. The world markets are not your source. Your source is God’s glorious riches in Christ Jesus. You are his little one and your Father knows that you need all these things. His promise to you today is, all these things you need for life and living shall be added to you if you first focus on his righteousness and his kingdom principles; his purposes for your life.

God-tracking is having confidence in the economics of Glory.

I lift up my eyes above the newspapers and TV screen to fix them on Jesus who meets my needs. I seek first your kingdom purposes for my life. I have a bank account in the bank of Glory! So, I place my confidence in you, O Lord, to meet all my needs according to your riches in glory, by Christ Jesus. Amen.”
