[ …and I will still declare Your wondrous deeds.]
God is a teacher. Not just any teacher, but the ultimate teacher. We can’t escape the fact that He will always be both a good Father and a compassionate Teacher.
Of course He’s so much more than this, however, the point that I’m making is that He isn’t just some far off unreachable Creator; He’s an amazing parent who wants to be involved with His children, providing us with a top notch education. Only God Himself could fit that bill.
When we don’t acknowledge Jesus, we only miss out on the very best that our Lord has to offer. Whatever He puts before us is good, for God is good, but we don’t always recognize this during life’s more challenging lessons. Some of us grow hard. The class clown becomes the class frown; the once eager and excited student becomes the slacker; and the “A” student becomes the drop out.
We can choose to be the rebellious child, or we can become the studious one; the one who finishes the assignments; the one who has been trained for every good work; the one who’s successful; and the one who receives their reward.
If this sounds like too much work, remember that God is also a helper. He loves to see us succeed, and He doesn’t fail to provide everything we could possibly need to get the assignment done. When we’re troubled by the lessons, He is also our learner’s assistant and counselor. He doesn’t skimp or hold anything back, and He won’t leave us to do this on our own. (Never.)
The best really is yet to come, but we have a choice to make, so we must choose. Either we become dropouts, or we’re all out for Jesus. There’s no in-between. (Revelation 3:15) Are you fully immersed?
