Day 3 - Super God - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

Romans 8:37-39 - (NIV1984):  "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

In the Sunday School in which I teach, there are three classes, Kindergarten, 1st - 2nd Grade  and 3rd - 5th Grade.  The Kindergarten class is taught in a different room, and the 1st - 5th grade start in one room.  After a short lesson, praise and worship and offering, the 1st - 2nd grade go to their own class room. (For some of our lesson plans, see Easy Sunday School Lesson Plans.)

This week, I was rushed all week, so I did not have as much time as I usually have to prepare my lesson plan, so I took it from a bible reading that made my life better this week, Isaiah 41:10 (NIV1984) - "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you;I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." 

I spent the first twenty minutes teaching about the Strength, Power and Help that God has for all of us.  It went really well, since it is part of my life daily, and the kids responded better than I expected.

As it turned out, the other teacher in my group was teaching 2 Kings 6:8-23, where God comes to Israel's help with an army of Angels.  They were already there, but a prayer had to be made for one of them to see the army that God had already sent.  The Help was not just the army being there, but the peace that came when he saw the army of angels.  

The other teacher was a little awe stricken, because neither of us had talked to each other about what we were teaching.  We just picked verses about God being the ever present helper, without talking to each other first.

Then the music teacher was amazed, because the song she was going to teach this day was one she had just heard at a Chris Tomlin concert.  The story of the song is very powerful, but the song's name, "Whom Shall I Fear?" and its message, that God is always near us, helping us, made a coincidence into a very awesome display of the power of the Holy spirit.  Three teachers who had not talked to each other, all blowing off the curriculum the same day, and all picking the same lesson to teach the same day in the same class.

It gets even more powerful.  As my wife was walking past the kindergarten class room, she saw the teacher, whom just happens to be our daughter, standing up on the tables teaching the children about God always being there to help them.  She ALWAYS follows a lesson plan, but today, since the clocks had to be turned back due to DST, she had to punt some.  Children kept showing up late, so she changed some of the plan to be about God always being there to help.

He wanted us to teach that lesson, and all 4 of us did teach the same lesson, unknown to the others.  I do not know if it was me, some other teacher or one of the students, but he wanted us to hear that word, and he made it happen.

That is the power of our God.  He wanted us to know that he is a super power all on his own.  No difficulty, so difference between us, no issues known or unknown can prevent God from being there for you.  HE IS SUPER GOD, AND HE IS YOUR SUPER GOD.
