March 17 // God is with us.

Read Psalm 27:1 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: How would you feel if you were one of the Israelites standing between the Egyptians and the Red Sea?

 

Parent Note: At some point in our lives, we will face something as scary or as impossible as crossing the Red Sea. The good news is that we never have to face situations like this alone; God is always with us. Taking the first step on the path God has set for us can be a scary thought, but we can build our confidence and faith by building a strong personal relationship with God. As we get to know Him better, we will grow to trust Him in any situation. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for protecting the Israelites.
Thank You for delivering us from our slavery to sin by sending Your Son, Jesus.
Help us to remember Your awesome power to save when we face difficult situations.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
