Courage Week 5

On September 29, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

In this week’s Bible story, we remember God’s promise to Abraham that he would receive the Land of Canaan. But the great city of Jericho was blocking Abraham’s family from moving into Canaan (Joshua 6). They simply needed to courageously trust God and the land would be theirs.

Our Bottom Line is I can be brave because I know God keeps His promises. God promises to never leave us. God promises to give us hope and a future. Sometimes it’s our fear that keeps us from ever living in the promises God has given us.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 NIrV. Many of God’s followers will tell you their greatest adventure started when they trusted God into a decision they were afraid of. And in the end, they never regretted living courageously and believing God’s promises.

Courage Week 4

On September 22, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Sep_standard_bottomline4

 

In this week’s Bible story, 12 spies snuck into the land of Canaan (Numbers 13–14). Ten of them reported that they were afraid to attack the land, but Joshua and Caleb were the only two who spoke up and said God would provide a way for them to conquer the land.

Our Bottom Line is I can be brave even when others aren’t. Sometimes others will let their fear overcome them and keep them from doing what needs to be done. In those moments, we can still have courage because we know God will provide wherever He leads.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 NIrV. Everyone is afraid of something. Sometimes, everyone is afraid of the same thing. In those moments, we can be the one to have courage because we remember our trust isn’t in our own ideas or strength. Our trust is in God.

Courage Week 3

On September 15, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Sep_standard_bottomline3

 

In this week’s Bible story, Moses was up against an impossible task: on one side was the Red Sea on the other side was the Egyptian army coming after the Israelites (Exodus 14). Only God could save them. Moses stood strong in the face of fear and trusted God with the outcome.

Our Bottom Line is: I can be brave even when things seem impossible. We often find ourselves in situations that feel impossible. For kids, it might be moving to a new town or parents divorcing. It’s hard to know what’s going to happen and how everything will be okay. But we can have courage because we trust God.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 NIrV. The story of Moses teaches us that God can make a solution even when we can’t see the possibility. And when we bravely follow God into that solution, we can see God do amazing things that we never imagined.

Courage Week 2

On September 8, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Sep_standard_bottomline2

 

In this week’s Bible story, Moses gives excuse after excuse for why he’s not the person God should use to rescue the Israelites (Exodus 3:1–4:17; Exodus 7–12). Even though Moses is frightened, he trusts God and confronts Pharaoh after each of the plagues to help God rescue the Israelites.

Our Bottom Line is: I can be brave even when I don’t feel ready. Sometimes we’re asked to do something we don’t feel good enough to do. In those moments, being scared is OK. But we prove our faith in God by our response. God will fill in where we think we don’t measure up. Courageously taking a step shows we believe God has everything under control.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3, NIrV True courage is having faith in God even in the presence of fear. We choose to show courage because we trust that God will take care of us.

Courage Week 1

On September 1, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Sep_standard_bottomline1

 

Courage is being brave enough to do what you should do, even when you’re afraid. Courage is not the absence of fear but how you respond in the face of fear. When we approach situations, we can remember that God is bigger than anything we face. If we’re afraid we’ll be all alone, He will be with us. If we’re afraid we’re not good enough, He’ll provide the gifting we need. And when we can’t understand what’s going to happen, we can remember that God sees everything that’s happening and wants what’s best for us. Then we can move forward courageously.

This month, let’s think about how:
(1) God desires a relationship with us. Being courageous demonstrates trust and builds that relationship.
(2) The Bible challenges us to respond to life with courage even when what we face doesn’t make sense.
(3) As we trust God and show courage, we become more like Jesus who was brave enough to say and do what God asked—even when He faced death on the cross.

This week, we’re discovering:
In this week’s Bible story, Joseph lived a life of courage (Genesis 30, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42-46). Joseph could have despaired when faced with several difficult situations, but rather he remained faithful to God, trusting that God must have a bigger story at work.

Our Bottom Line is I can be brave because I know God is with me. As kids approach a new school year, sports team, or art class, they can push past their fear because God is with them. When kids are afraid of being alone or being in the dark, they can have courage because God is with them.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3, NIrV Our trust in God is the source of our courage. Just like Joseph knew God was working to make things good in his life, we can have the same confidence and move courageously into fearful situations because we know God is with us.
