When have you had to trust God?
Morning time: Write the verse for this month in a place where the whole family can see it (fridge, family chalkboard, etc.). When you see your child in the morning, point it out to them, read it with them and encourage them to do this each morning before leaving to help them memorize it.
Drive Time: While in the car ask your preteen, “What do you need to trust God with right now? What makes it hard to trust God sometimes?”
Q&A for Kids: If you were on an outdoor advenutre, what three items would you depend on?
Q&A for Parents: Have you ever gotten really lost before? Was it your fault, or someone/something else’s, like a map or the GPS on your phone that steered you wrong?
Bed time: God’s promises don’t depend on us getting everything right. Jacob discovered he could trust God no matter what—even when he messed up. And the same is true for us. No matter what happens, no matter what we’ve done, we can depend on God to work it out in the end. Pray for each other, that you would trust God with the big things and the little things in your life this week.
