Prayer: Please help me know what You would have me do today, Lord. Please let me know if there is anything You want me to say to one of my students. Thank You. Amen.
Scripture: Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day. What you have heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:12b-13 NIV
Just as you have entrusted God with the many aspects and responsibilities of your life, He entrusts you with an incredible and significant part of His great plan. I get excited when I think about the awesomeness of touching other lives for Him and being used as a vessel to bring His children to a personal relationship with Him. I also stay awake many nights praying over the ones that just won’t listen or who don’t take Him seriously or don’t see a need or at least an urgent need for Him in their life.
You have been entrusted with another year’s worth of students and the school year is quickly drawing to a close. How have you done? If God were to hand out report cards what kind of marks would you receive? Have you guarded those whom He entrusted to you? Could you stand up in front of your students today and tell them that all you have said (and the way you have said it) are of sound teaching from the love and faith you have in Jesus Christ?
During these next few weeks, know that it is not too late for any of your students. Know that you still have time to finish this year with no regrets. Fill these days with the passion to fulfill the goals you set forth at the beginning of this year and even at the beginning of your career. God is always faithful and guards all that we entrust to Him. We undeservingly receive 100 percent of Him and from Him every day. How can each of us carry out the attribute and responsibility of being entrusted in our daily environment (classroom, hallways, meetings, cafeteria, office, etc.)?
