Question of the Week:  The Bible tells us that when we look for God, we will find Him.  Where do we look for God?

God doesn't play hide and seek with us.  He doesn't sneak around us making it hard to see Him.  Nope!  He shows us how to find Him!  Where do we look?  When we look outside we see His miracles all through creation!  When we open our bibles we read about all of the incredible miracles He has done and keeps on doing!  When we talk to others we hear about the wonderful things He does in lives today!  Let's look for God today!  We will find Him!

Talk about where you might find when looking for Him today.

Question of the Week: Our God does miracles on the outside and the inside!  What miracles can you think of that happen on the outside?  What about the inside?

Our God does miracles!  Some of these miracles are things that happen on the outside and we see them with our eyes.  Miracles such as people being healed, walls crashing down, battles being won, or waters being opened.  Other miracles happen on the inside of us, in our hearts.  These miracles happen we God shows Himself to us and our hearts turn to follow Him.  He changes us!  He works miracles in our hearts as we turn to Him!

Pray together asking God to reveal Himself and work miracles inside of us.

Question of the Week:  Our God takes care of the impossible!  What does it mean when something is impossible for us but possible for God?

We have limits.  That means that we can't do everything.  No matter how much we practice or how hard we try, there are things that will always be impossible for us.  However we serve a God who has no limits.  That means that He can do absolutely anything!  There is nothing too hard or impossible for Him!  When we feel like we are up against something impossible, we can remember that our God takes care of the impossible!  He can do anything!

Talk and pray together about any problem or worry that feels impossible right now.

Question of the Week:  We can turn to God for help!  The bible says that God is powerful.  What does that mean?

Our God is so powerful that nothing is too hard for Him!  He can control, change, create, or destroy anything.  Move a mountain?  That's easy for Him.  Make walls come crashing down?  That's not hard at all for Him.  Creates something new and amazing?  He can do it before we can even think about it.  Our God is full of power!  We can turn to Him and trust Him to help us because He is powerful and nothing is too hard for Him!  We are loved and protected our BIG powerful God!

Talk about any fears or worries that feel impossible to overcome and pray together asking God to show His power.

Question of the Week:  God is our Helper!  Why is it not enough to just be a good rule follower?

We need God!  No matter how hard we try, we could never be a perfect rule follower and that's great news!  When we know that we cannot be perfect, we know how much we need God!  When we know that we need Him, we get to live in His love, power, strength, and compassion!  God is our Helper but He doesn't help us become perfect rule followers.  He helps us see how much we need to be rescued and He helps us trust Him so that we can live in His presence.  We can turn to God and trust Him!

Pray together thanking God for being our Helper.

Question of the Week: Our God can do anything! How do you know that He will always take care of you?

God has always been taking perfect care of us!  When God created the world, He designed it to grow and keep the things we need to survive. We can read lots of stories in the Bible of how God took care of His people by doing incredible miracles among them. We know that He will always take care of us because He never changes! He is the same forever! He will never stop loving us or taking perfect care of us. We don't need to worry or complain because God is in control!

Talk with your child about what it means to live as a child of God. How does He want to use us to care for others who need help today?
