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:
From the pressure to perform, to the comparison trap fed by social media, to the bombardment of “gloom and doom” they see through the 24-hour news cycle, kids today know what stress and anxiety look and feel like. And while the pressures they face may be different from the stuff we faced as kids, God hasn’t. He never gets stressed or scared. There is nothing bigger or stronger or more powerful and no one more faithful or steady that your heavenly Father. When we put our trust in God, we can rest assured that He is in control and ready to help. With a generation of kids facing new levels of anxiety and fear, let’s point them to the truth that God is with them and that He can be trusted. [Bottom Line] When the pressure is on, you can trust God is with you.
