From the Director
In I Samuel 17:34-37, young David explains to Saul how the Lord saved him from a lion and a bear that came to attack his flock of sheep. He states that he will overcome his greatest enemy, the Philistine army (namely Goliath), based on God’s provision in the past. The verses read:
34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, 35 I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. 37 The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.” (New International Version)
Right now, it seems the troubles which covid-19 continues to present are like those of the lion or the bear. They are God’s way of showing Himself mighty and allowing us to see His provision. The Lord has seen BAIS through two difficult years and continues to be faithful. We need not fear, but trust. God will continue to uphold our school because He is a God of promises. Just like David, let’s try to see these trials as God’s way of reassuring us that he is with us and will sustain us.
Together in him,
