Back to School Time

Read Job 31:4 NLT:

Doesn’t he see everything I do and every step I take?

My family moved right before I entered second grade. I didn’t want to change schools. I might get lost in a different school building. Would I make friends? Would my new teacher be nice?
Soon it will be time for the school year to begin. Maybe you feel like I did – a little scared.

Do you know you can pray for your teacher, your new classmates, and even your principal, now? That seems topsy-turvy to pray for people you haven’t even met yet, doesn’t it?

But we can pray like this because the Bible tells us God knows everything (1 John 3:20). He knows the past, present and future. He already knows who your teacher will be, the friends you’ll make, and will be with you every step of the way.

Psalm 37:23 says, “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”

When you feel afraid, remember – God loves you and is right there with you. He knows all about you.
