February 17 // His ways are not our ways.

Read Isaiah 55:8-9 out loud with your family.

 

Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.

 

Q: God called Abraham to do some pretty big things. How can we build our faith and trust in God to obey when God calls us to something? 

 

Parent Note: Knowing that God has the power to do anything He says He will do can help us to trust and obey Him. What seems impossible to us is completely possible for the Lord. There is nothing the Lord can't do. We don't need to understand how He will make it happen, we just need to believe that He can do it 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

 

Dear God, thank You for the wonderful example of a life lived by faith and obedience that we find in Abraham.
Help us to have faith in You and obey You when you call.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
