Family Devotions, 1st - 4th Grade - Trust God. He can do the impossible.

Post by PastorDan on Tue Jul 12, 2016 9:16 pm

FOR STARTERS:
Before calling the family together, set an egg up on its end. Pour 1/8 tsp of salt on a table. Set the egg with its bottom end on the salt until it is balancing. Blow away the excess salt from around the egg. The egg will balance on the salt but the salt cannot be detected. Now invite the family to devotions and ask them to do the impossible: balance an egg on its end. Then show them that you did it. All might have a good laugh after you explain how. This introduces how Sarah laughed when she heard the strange visitors (God and his angels) tell her that she would become a mother at the age of ninety. No tricks there. God really did do the impossible!

READ THE BIBLE:
Read in Genesis 18:1-15 and 21:1-6 how Isaac is promised to Abraham and Sarah.

KEY VERSE:
Genesis 18:14: “Is anything too hard for the LORD?”

TALK ABOUT IT:

  • Abraham and Sarah had three visitors. Who were they? (Genesis 18. Two were angels and the third was either an angel who spoke for the Lord or the Lord himself.)
  • What did the three visitors promise? (They promised that Sarah would have a son.)
  • What did Sarah do when she overheard this? (She laughed.)
  • Why do you think Sarah had such a hard time believing she would have a baby? When was this promise fulfilled? (Genesis 17:21, 18:14. Within a year.)
  • How old was Abraham? (100.)
  • How old was Sarah? (90.)
  • How do you think Abraham felt after the visitors left? What name did Abraham and Sarah choose for their son and why? (Genesis 17:19. Isaac because it means “laughter.” God told them to name the baby Isaac.)
  • Can God do the impossible? (Yes.)
  • Read the key verse. Can you think of an example of when God did something very special to help you or your family?


PRAYER POWER:
Gather prayer requests about those things that may seem impossible but with God would be possible. Especially emphasize praying for things that help us live more like Jesus would want.

Family Time Option
One day this week, try…
Make a “Top Ten Impossible List.” This list includes those things that seem impossible but if they happened, there would be a God-pleasing effect. These need not be big miracles but, perhaps, what seem to be small “that-will-never-happen” events. Post these on your refrigerator and pray for them intentionally and regularly. Don’t laugh at what God can do!
