“Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23, NIV
Do you know what Jesus can do through you in your professional life if you give Him a chance? Do you understand that regardless of what happens this year—what student or how many students have been placed in your class or what administrative decisions are made or what parents may say or do to you— you are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus (Romans 8:37)? Do you know that the prayer of a righteous teacher is powerful and effective and that you are that teacher (James 5:16)? Do you know that Jesus has called you to represent Him in your school and district (Matthew 10:22)? Do you know that you have never seen, heard, or imagined the marvelous professional life that God has planned for you (1 Corinthians 2:9)?
All these promises found in Scripture are for you! Receive them! Believe Him! He cannot lie! He is the true Promise Keeper!
Is there a promise from God found in Scripture that you are clinging to this school year?
Lord, we do believe, but help us overcome our unbelief! Amen.
