When I was a girl I enjoyed teaching school. Generally school was held in the garage of our home. At one of the places we lived I even had a big chalk board! I assumed I’d grow up and be a teacher. And I did. But not the kind of teacher I thought. God has given me opportunities to teach about Him – and my major is on His love and His care. I needed to know that most of all, so as I learned about Him I have become more proficient at this subject. Proficiency is achieved through wisdom and wisdom comes from the Lord.
Oh beloved, God wants to teach you how to teach others. But He starts with you – He wants your heart to be proficient at His truth. He wants to reach into your heart and give you His wisdom which isn’t taught in schools nor is it something you can buy. You just learn it by taking it in for yourself.
God wants you to know this morning that you are loved. Not because you are good, not because you get it right all the time, not because your house is clean or your dishes are put away. He loves you because He is Love! It’s impossible for Him to pour out anything that doesn’t line up with His character. He says to you that while things do matter, what matters most of all is that you are walking in His love and learning His wisdom. He is working within you to give you the tongue of the gifted, the heart of the wise and the inner strength of a warrior. Stop looking at yourself through the enemy’s eyes – satan will always say not good enough, impossible, stupid, etc. Stop looking at yourself through your human eyes – you will always measure yourself much lower in scale. Only seek to learn about yourself and become proficient in what God says – loved, redeemed, cherished, chosen, anointed, appointed, fire filled, victorious, loving, kind, generous and peaceful! You have something to give out to this generation and it all comes from the Father heart of God!
God loves you and He’s for you. Run to Him this morning and ask Him for more lessons on the important things of life. Reach for the best study book ever written – the Word of God. Ask Him to reveal it to your heart so that you can believe Him. Then live, speak, work, love and play in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
