Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” 2 Chronicles 20:20, NIV
Believe. Believe that God is with you right now. Believe that He can transform all things. Believe that He created all things. Believe that He has fearfully and wonderfully made each of your students and colleagues. Believe that He hears you when you pray. Believe that with His help, all things are possible. Believe that He is the best thing that has ever happened to your school. Believe that there are other Christian brothers and sisters on your campus. Believe.
Father, I believe in who You are and I believe that You have called me to my campus. I ask that You give me contagious belief and I trust that You will use me like You used Jehoshaphat, to lead others into belief in ways I am able to as an educator. Amen.
