“Our God is awesome in power; he is mighty in his splendour and holiness. He is the reason we exist.”
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
I have been writing the email devotional GodTracker for more than 19 years. What a privilege to share some thoughts of inspiration and motivation to help us seek and track the plans of God for our lives. God’s plans are promising, full of purpose and a blessing. Sometimes, however, we become so consumed with following God’s auspicious plans for our lives that we take our eyes off the Planner.
Watching social media and listening to the myriad teachings, comments and posts we’re bombarded with every day, I’m becoming more and more aware that much is being said about how we are to behave and live as Christians. We’re encouraged to preach the gospel, heal the sick, love our neighbour, seek happiness and peace. We’re instructed how to sing and worship, how to preach, how to serve the poor and how to stand up for righteousness. Don’t get me wrong, these are all excellent concepts, sure and true. Indeed, we need to know how to live and behave as followers of Christ. However, I haven’t seen many posts lately about the simplicity of simply seeking the face of Jesus and discovering the tremendous character of God; seeking his presence and simply seeking God for who he is.
May we fix our eyes only on Jesus. Let’s be mindful of Father God, setting our minds on things above, where Jesus is enthroned at God’s right hand. Our God is awesome in power; he is mighty in his splendour and holiness. He is the reason we exist. His love was demonstrated to us through the cross of Christ. Jesus, God incarnate, holy and pure, bore our sins when he died at Calvary. When he rose from the dead, he opened the way for you and me to boldly approach the majesty of God Almighty, in love and worship.
So, let us put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created us and purposefully seek his imminent presence in our lives, above all else. May we live for his glory, seeking first his kingdom and his righteousness.
God-tracking is all about Jesus.

Jesus, you’re everything to me!
“Dear God, I am sorry for becoming more consumed about the process of Christian living than with the face of the One for whom I live. I take my eyes off the ways of man and the ways of how to worship to simply worship you in truth, and spirit. Help me to seek your face. Help me to live for nothing else but your glory. Jesus, you’re everything to me! Amen.”
