Scripture Lady’s Bible Lessons for Kids: God’s Promises for Your Kids are In the Bag – Learning About God’s Promises

 

The Scripture Lady loves creating Bible lessons for kids! Here is one called “God’s Promises for Your Kids are In the Bag” to help learn about God’s promises.

Have you ever had an “Aha!” moment?  I’ve had several in my lifetime, but one that sticks out as one of the best, happened one day in my Sunday school class.

Our time was coming to a close and I usually took prayer requests at the end of the class.  One boy raised his hand.  This boy was one of my “challenging” students.  You know the kind – talks a lot, disruptive and often the class clown.  But this day, this boy began to share something that he was fearful about.  His dad was probably going to lose his job.  He was scared for his family and didn’t know what was going to happen.  The boy had all of our attention.  He needed prayer.


That day, I just “happened” to have brought in my little promise Bible.  Many of you might have one of your own.  It’s just a book that has Scriptural promises listed under different headings such as “Promises for when I’m lonely”, “Promises about Heaven” or “Promises for when I am afraid”.  Bingo!  God’s promises for times of fear were exactly what I needed.

I opened the book and began reading some great Bible verses such as John 14:27:  “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” and Hebrews 13:6: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear.  What can man do to me?”

As I read promise after promise, this boy’s countenance began to change before my very eyes.  In fact, the whole class was very quiet and there was a presence of reverence in the room.  We ended the time with prayer and afterwards all the kids asked, “Hey, can you bring that book back next week?”  I said, “Sure!”

Well, not only did I bring the book back, I also brought in a bag.  On the bag I placed a label that said, “Put in a Problem, Pull Out a Promise”.  I then encouraged the kids to write any problems they were facing on a slip of paper and place them in the bag.  They didn’t have to write their names down if they didn’t want to.  At some point, I would read the problems and then search my promise book or the Bible to find some great verses to help them with their needs.

Why not try bringing in your own bag and book of promises to help foster a love for God and His Word in your next Sunday School class?

    This is great! It’s a good way for the children to relieve themselves of their worries and focus on being children. Would work for adults too! Don’t you just love God?!!

    Your emails are a blessing for me. I have a child who is having nightmares and has stopped coming to church on Sunday. I’ve been searching for a way to reach this little person through God’s love, and you’ve just provided it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
