Dive In – Week 3 #Quest

Bible Story: Jonah | Jonah 1:1-3:10
Main Point: I should go God’s way.
Memory Verse: “Trust the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5, NCV

This month, the true stories of Noah, Jonah and Naaman will help us get to know God a little better and see that He is 100% worthy of our trust. We don’t have to hold back. We can let go and DIVE IN! Because no matter what is happening around us, we can always trust God.

In this week’s lesson Jonah learned the hard way that God’s way is best.

Jonah knew he had made a bad choice. He was sitting inside the big fish and told God how sorry he was for not trusting Him and not going His way. God forgave Jonah and the big fish SPIT Jonah out! Jonah learned to always trust God and we can trust Him, too!

When God tells us to do something or to act a certain way, it’s because He loves us and knows what is good for us. Because we know we can trust God, we can trust His way is always best!”

High Wire – Week 3 #Motion

16Sep_standard_Theme

TRUST: Putting your confidence in someone you can depend on.
MAIN POINT: When the pressure is on, you can trust God is with you.
BIBLE STORY: Joseph Interprets Pharaoh’s Dreams | Genesis 41
MEMORY VERSE: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

In Genesis 41, we look at the next chapter of Joseph’s life. Pharaoh had a dream that no one could interpret. The cupbearer finally remembered how Joseph interpreted his dream while they were in prison and recommended they get him to help. With God’s help, Joseph interpreted the dreams and formulates a plan to help Egypt survive through the seven years of famine that God said was coming. Pharaoh ended up putting Joseph in charge of the entire project. Joseph could have been worried and decided that the task was too difficult, but instead he trusted God and God was faithful.

When the pressure is on, you can trust God is with you. We will face moments when we’re called to do something that might seem crazy to us — maybe something as simple as getting up in front of the class and giving a speech—but we can trust God to give us the strength and courage to face whatever comes our way.

 


High Wire – Week 2 #Motion

16Sep_standard_Theme

TRUST: Trust: putting your confidence in someone you can depend on.
MAIN POINT: When life doesn’t make sense, you can trust God is with you.
BIBLE STORY: Joseph Interprets Pharaoh’s Dreams | Genesis 41
MEMORY VERSE: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

We continue Joseph’s story in Genesis 40. Joseph is accused of something he didn’t do and finds himself in prison. Joseph still trusted God, and God was with him. While he’s in prison, Joseph meets pharaoh’s cupbearer and baker, who both end up having dreams they don’t understand. With God’s help, Joseph interprets their dreams. The Cupbearer promises to talk to pharaoh about Joseph and his situation, but forgets about Joseph. Still, Joseph trusted God and eventually is put in charge of the rest of the prisoners.

When life doesn’t make sense, you can trust God is with you. There will be times in life when something happens that just doesn’t make sense like a divorce, moving to a new home or a new school, or getting a serious illness. And while that situation is confusing, we can continue to trust God and allow Him to help us get through that difficult time.

 


Dive In – Week 2 #Quest

Bible Story: Noah (God’s Promises) | Genesis 8:1-9:17
Main Point: God keeps His promises.
Memory Verse: “Trust the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5, NCV

This month, the true stories of Noah, Jonah and Naaman will help us get to know God a little better and see that He is 100% worthy of our trust. We don’t have to hold back. We can let go and DIVE IN! Because no matter what is happening around us, we can always trust God.

In this week’s lesson God makes a rainbow as a symbol that He keeps His promises.

God put a rainbow in the sky to remind Noah’s family of His promise never to flood the whole world again. Noah trusted God, and God always keeps His promises. We can trust God and believe He will keep His promises to us, too!

High Wire – Week 1 #Motion

16Sep_standard_ThemeTRUST: Trust: putting your confidence in someone you can depend on.
MAIN POINT: When you think you’re alone, you can trust God is with you.
BIBLE STORY: Joseph Sold by His Brothers | Genesis 37, 39:1-2
MEMORY VERSE: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Whether on the high wire at the circus or in our daily lives, trust is important. If we don’t trust, we might miss the opportunity to watch God show up and do what only He can do. Putting our trust in God and the people He’s put in our lives isn’t always easy.

Our own understanding can have a way of getting us in trouble sometimes, especially when life doesn’t turn out exactly how we’d want or expect. That’s why it’s important that our trust is grounded in God, His love for us, and His willingness to do whatever it took to have a relationship with us.

In Genesis 37 and 39:1-2, we discover that Joseph was his father Jacob’s favorite. He gave Joseph a colorful coat, which made the rest of his brothers extremely jealous. On top of that, Joseph told his family about his dreams where they bowed down to him. Eventually, Joseph was sold into slavery and his brothers lied about it to their father. Though Joseph was alone in a far-away country, he chose to trust God.

When you think you’re alone, you can trust God is with you. There may be times when we may feel like no one is with us or on our side. Although we feel that way, Someone is looking out for us.
