"… there is no such thing as nothing."

The Power Within

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Pity the poor substitute teacher who feels insecure. When a nervous sub enters a classroom the students will sense it, and chaos is likely to break out. On the other hand, pity the students when a teacher is authoritarian, lording it over them just because he or she can. What students are looking for is someone with true authority, whose authority comes from an inner certainty rather than a need to look good. If you have that kind of authority you can be 4 feet 11 inches, and big, burly football players will pay attention. Jesus spoke with that kind of authority, and even the demons within obeyed. That kind of authority flows from the inner security that comes from prayer and union with God.
