As we wrap up this issue, I’d like you to pause and listen.
You can close your eyes, find a quiet place without distractions, or stay exactly where you are right now. It is up to you.
Once you’ve found your chosen space, take a deep breath and reflect on the theme and title of this issue—Empowered…See the Possible.
Ask the Lord what possibilities He has for you this school year.
Sit in His presence.
What did you hear? If the Lord showed you a possibility, will you share this with Christian Educators at email@example.com? We would like to pray for you and encourage you in this exciting possibility.
If you aren’t sure if you heard from the Lord, it is okay. Being still and listening for the quiet nudge of the Holy Spirit requires practice. And, it isn’t easy for busy educators to quiet our minds and just listen. I know from experience.
But, since the best possibilities come from the Lord, listening to His leading is important. In Psalm 46:10, the musician writes that in the midst of the chaos of life, “God says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God’” (NIV). It is when we are humbly quiet with the Lord, that He usually shows us the most amazing possibilities. And I believe that He has many possibilities in store for each and every one of us.
In addition to spending quiet time with the Lord so we can see the possibilities He has prepared for us, I am convinced that spending time in His presence also empowers us to make these possibilities become realities.
When I think about how the Lord empowers us, I see time resting in Him as a way to plug into the ultimate source of power, a way of recharging our soul so that we can fulfill the possibilities He has placed before us. Phillippians 4:13 assures us that we can handle any challenge, task, and possibility through His strength.
Through His presence, He empowers us so that His possibilities become realities.
