Theme: God can control nature, doing whatever He wants
“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.” (Psalm 115:3)
Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 139:1-3. If the weather is nice, do today’s Bible lesson outside and enjoy nature as you learn about God’s power over nature.
Catechism Q&A: Q. Can God do all things? A. Yes; God can do all his holy will.
Solar Power: Read Psalm 115:3 and 135:5-7. The Lord’s power is truly great. Tell your children in your own words the story of how Joshua cried out to the Lord during a battle and God stopped the sun from moving. While you tell the story, have them illustrate the battle scene with a sun. When you’re done, put the illustration in square #2 of this week’s notebook page.
To underscore God’s power, read some books about the Sun, such as The Sun is My Favorite Star and The Sun: Our Nearest Star. It’s incredible to contemplate how God has such power as to stop a massive star as the sun in its tracks! Only our Creator.
