God is always with us; Elijah found that out in today’s Bible story. An angel of God came to Elijah and woke him up to eat! When we pray and believe in God’s promises, we know that He is always there for us.
Word of the Week: PRAY
Bible Verse: “We know and need God’s love.” 1 John 4:16a
Bible Story: Elijah and the Angel (1 Kings 19:1-18)
Prayer: Thank you for always being with me. I know you care about me and will take care of me. You will always be there to help me through everything. Help me to learn and believe your promises. Give me the strength that I need when I am afraid. Amen.
take the message home this week!
The Bible is full of God’s promises. Choose one and write it down so that you can meditate on it this week. Each day as you consider the promise, ask God to help you believe it!
Children rely on their parents, and in doing this, they learn about relying on God. This week is a good time to develop a habit of praying with your child at a specific time every day. Bedtime and mealtimes are a great place to start.
One day this week, take a walk outside together and talk about what you see that reminds you of God’s love and how he takes care of us. Remind your child that we can always rely on God!
