Bible Point: God’s power works for good.
Key Verse: Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7
Just as God’s power helped the Israelites conquer Jericho, God’s power can work for good in our lives, too (Joshua 6:1-27). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:
- With your kids, create a list of powerful events in the lives of your family.
- Then look for how God worked for good through those events. Maybe a family member could have been badly hurt in a car accident, but instead, God used that situation to help heal a rift in your family. Or maybe God used an illness in your family to help you share your faith with someone who needed to hear about Jesus.
- With your children, praise God for his mighty work in your lives.
God, thank You for using Your power for good in our lives. We trust You and commit our lives to You. Use our lives in whatever way You want. In Jesus’ name, amen.
