Bible Point: God helps us with our problems
Key Verse: “Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
We learned this week how Jehoshaphat sought God’s help when an army invaded Israel. God responded by telling Jehoshaphat that he would fight for the Israelites. So God caused the enemy to destroy themselves, and he gave the Israelites great riches. Like Jehoshaphat, we should trust God with our problems (2 Chronicles 20:1-30). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea.
1. Talk about a tough situation where you trusted God. Perhaps you’ve recently dealt with an illness in the family or a tough financial time.
2. What were the benefits of trusting God? What things prevented you from trusting God? How were you able to trust God through the difficult moments?
3. Then talk with your children about things that prevent them from trusting God when they have problems.
God, we know You want to help us with our problems. Please help us trust You with [name a situation]. We give You this situation and ask You to fight for us just as You fought for the Israelites. In Jesus’ name, amen.
