The Best Teacher

This is what the Lord says – your Redeemer, the Holy One of
Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who
directs you in the way you should go.”
Isaiah 48:17 (NLT)
The current buzz is about teachers –
which ones are nice, tough, old, fun, or boring.
That’s middle school talk, but
adults have teachers too and continue to learn every day.
Pause.
What did you learn yesterday?
From whom did you learn? A mentor or
boss? Author or journalist? Sitcom screen writer or news anchor? Facebook
sharer? TED speaker?
Do these teachers have your best
interests in mind?
I smile at the way God throws out
His credentials. I am your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. I am the Lord your
God. Pretty impressive, right? It’s sad that God  even needs to shake us awake and remind us of
who He is.
So, are you learning from the
Master? Are you in class taking notes? Doing your homework?
Like every teacher, God wants you to
succeed. He nurtures, challenges, and corrects in order to direct you toward
your best life – your full potential. He’s a teacher who loves each student and
prepares an individualized lesson plan. He even stays after hours for special
help.
Becoming one of His students through
Bible study, prayer and discussion changed my life. Does that sound cliché? Perhaps,
but it is true in the deepest way. I am grateful for His wisdom and seek out
His instruction. I am humbled by His sacrifice and blessed that He calls me by
name. It’s the best thing I ever did. My hearts swells just sharing these words
with you.
Will you enroll in God’s continuing
education program?

    I love this. I am enrolled in His continuing ed program. I would be lost without my Teacher.
