Hands-on Faith for Families – week of May 21, 2018

Theme: Relax! God Is in Control

God’s Timing

Scripture: Every living thing looks to you for food. You give it to them exactly when they need it. (Psalm 145:15 NIrV)

Play: Guess how long the following people had to wait for things: How long did Noah and his family have to wait inside an ark for the rain to stop? (40 days) How long did Abraham and Sarah have to wait for a baby? (25 years) How long did the Israelites have to wait to enter the Promised Land? (40 years) Ask your parents how long you will have to wait for a treat.

Talk: Sometimes it seems that prayers will never be answered. But God promises that when you pray according to His will, He always hears and answers (1 John 5:14-15). Sometimes you have to wait patiently for His answer, and sometimes He answers differently than what you expect. Still, He knows how to give you what you need, exactly when you need it. To learn what the right timing for an answer is, wait for God to answer it. That’s the right time, and the perfect answer.

Pray: Thank God for answering so many of your family’s prayers at just the right time.
