Think about that title… Truly if we meditate on it even for just a little while, it will deepen our faith in Him.
Our pastor, John Lemmings, preached a message on that subject last Sunday. It was a like a birthday gift wrapped in glittery red paper, beautiful white ribbon, and a tag with my name on it! And I’m gonna pay it forward, albeit this is the condensed version tweaked for teachers of course.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us).
God is WITH us always. He’s in our classroom every single minute of every single day. He will never leave us nor forsake us! (Deuteronomy 31:6) When things are going good, He’s with us. When things are not going good He’s with us. Selah! (Stop and think about that a minute!) Therefore, remember He’s with you when your days and your students are challenging. Call on Him, because He’s with you, dear teachers.
Not only is God with us, He’s IN us in the form of the Holy Spirit. Wow! The Spirit guides us as we teach our students, comforts us when we are feeling down, and helps us to love the unlovable… not that we ever have an unlovable student in our classroom. AMEN! Thank you Jesus!
