- SAY: “Today’s true story from the Bible begins with a man named Elijah. Elijah was a friend of God. He loved God and knew God can do anything. That’s why Elijah trusted God. But the king of the land, King Ahab, did not trust God. King Ahab believed in a pretend God. He even had a big statue of him. The king had a lot of people who told him over and over that his pretend god had super powers and that his statue could do anything. The king thought that was great. But Elijah knew that it was NOT great. Elijah knew that there is only one true God and everyone needed to know. So, Elijah said to the king, ‘Hey, king, let’s do a test. We will each set up an altar then we will pray. The god who starts a fire on the altar is the real God—the one true God. Everyone agreed, and Elijah let King Ahab go first. So, King Ahab and his big group of people prayed to their pretend god. They shouted, but the pretend god did not send fire. So Elijah said, ‘Maybe he’s sleeping. Maybe you should shout louder.’ And that’s what King Ahab and his people did. They shouted louder and louder, but their pretend god still didn’t answer with fire. Now it was Elijah’s turn. Elijah trusted God and believed that God can do anything. So, Elijah went to the altar. He had people pour water all over it so it would be really hard to light on fire, then he prayed to God. God, we believe You are the one true God. We believe You can do anything! Show Your power God so all the people here can see that You are the one true God and You have the power to do anything. And guess what happened? God did it! God sent fire down on the wet altar, then everyone knew that God is the one true God! Wow! God is SO powerful! God can do anything! When we remember that God can do anything, it helps us trust God. [Bottom Line] I can trust God, and you can trust God."
- Bath Time
- As you bathe your child, ask them, "Can you blow bubbles in the water? Can you tap the top of the water with your hands? Can you scoop and pour the water? Can you put your head under the water?" Then say, "Wow! You can do a lot of things. But guess what! God can do ANYTHING! It's true! That's one of the reasons we can trust God. God can do anything!"
