Hi Journey Kids parents!

Elisha was causing major problems for the evil King Aram. Aram set trap after trap for the Israelites, but Elisha was a prophet of God. God told Elisha where the traps had been set which allowed the Israelites to avoid them. Aram was livid and sent his entire army to capture Elisha. Elisha’s servant was terrified, but not Elisha. Elisha prayed God would open his servant’s eyes to see what he could see. And God did. The servant could finally see that they were surrounded by an army of God’s angels – protecting them from their enemy.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Elisha’s Servant is Afraid

Big Idea: God is with us when we’re afraid, so we can pray that He’ll open our eyes.

Memory Verse: “I looked to the Lord, and he answered me. He saved me from everything I was afraid of.” Psalm 34:4 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

God had not abandoned Elisha and his servant. He was with them – protecting them – all along. He doesn’t abandon us either. He is with us – even when we can’t see Him. I hope this week you remember that He is with you no matter what.
