I would like to express my best wishes for success to all our children who are currently writing their final matriculation examinations.
In the book of Joshua, chapter 1, verse 9, God says: ‘Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you’.
On the same wavelength, in the book of Exodus, chapter 33, verse 14, God says: ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest’.
It is this time of the year when students have to focus on their studies, pay attention to their books, and concentrate on their future and ultimate destination. In the book of 2 Timothy, chapter 4 verses 7 and 8, the Apostle Paul says: ‘I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
Students, remember that the Scripture clearly states that the beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord. In the book of Prophet Jeremiah, chapter 33, verse 3, God says: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
May the miracles, signs and wonders of the most high God follow our matriculants throughout their examinations.
Yours in education.
