Ask your kid to tell you about Nehemiah (PreK), Joshua and Caleb (K-2nd) or Deborah (3rd-5th).
What could Nehemiah, Joshua and Caleb or Deborah have been afraid of? Who did they choose to trust instead? How did God protect them?
What kinds of things make you feel afraid? How can we trust God instead of feeling fearful?
As a family, watch the acoustic version of a song called “I’m Not Afraid.” You can even tell your own fears to go away by singing along!
Read Isaiah 40:31 again: “But those who trust in the Lord will receive new strength. They will fly as high as eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not grow weak.” As a family, pray and ask God to help each person replace his or her fears with trust.
