Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
Life can be hard. You lose your job. That routine check-up leads to a tough diagnosis. You and your spouse are fighting. For those who’ve put their faith in Christ, it’s important to look beyond our circumstances and lift our eyes to the One who never changes. God is still God, no matter what’s happening right in front us. There is nothing that God can’t handle. As our memory verse for this month reminds us, we will have trouble. But we have hope because God has won the battle over the world and whatever it throws our way. [Bottom Line] Whatever happens, remember how powerful God is.
