Monthly Focus: Who is always with you? (God is always with you.)
Bible Story: Esther ● Esther 2:2 – 8:17
Main Point: When God is with me, I can be strong.
Memory Verse: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid… for the Lord your God goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6, NIV
We can do super things when we trust that God is always with us and do things His way. It’s not about what WE can do but about what GOD can do. Because God is always with us, we can be super!
In this week’s lesson, God is with Esther.
Esther’s plan to save the Jews was risky and could have made her get in trouble with the king. But because God was with her and made her strong, Esther convinced the king not to get rid of her people! Being strong on the inside is even important than having strong muscles. We’re strong when we choose to do things God’s way. And He can help us because He is with us!
