CONFIDENCE: Living like you believe what God says is true.
Series Memory Verse: “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13, NIV
Main Point: God can use you no matter what.
Bible Story: Gideon | Judges 6-8
Amped is defined as being filled with energetic excitement and enthusiasm. When we realize that Jesus came to give us the fullest life possible, we can live confidently in His love for us, and THAT is living an amped life! This June we’re getting amped to help our kids understand that, with God’s help, we can have the confidence to change the world!
In Judges 6–8, God called Gideon to lead the Israelites, but Gideon doubted God would really want him to help. Gideon was from the smallest tribe, the smallest family, and he was the smallest of his family! God wanted to use him anyway and eventually Gideon learned that God could use him no matter what!
Gideon had no confidence. He NEVER expected God would choose him to lead an entire army to fight the big, bad Midianites. But God can do anything and He can use anybody. Big or small, young or old, God can use people to do amazing things. We can live confidently knowing that God can use us no matter what.
