God Shows Power and Sends Ten Plagues - Exodus 7:14–12:30

Here’s what happens…

God is all-powerful, and he shows his power in a big way! To show his power to the Pharaoh of Egypt, he sends 10 devastating plagues. Finally, Pharaoh is convinced enough of God’s power to free the Israelites.

Through the Week

Create reminders to thank God for his power this week.

  1. Cut out and color the frogs on this handout.
  2. Give everyone a few frogs to hide around the house.
  3. Whenever someone finds a frog this week, thank God that he’s all-powerful and ask him to show his power in your life.

Talk About This…

  • What’s the most powerful thing you can imagine God doing?

Watch and Discuss

Today we’re learning that God is all-powerful. When the Israelites felt powerless because they were slaves, God showed his huge power over the Egyptians!

  • Describe a time you felt powerless.

Watch “Powerless…Powerful.”

  • Which stories of feeling powerless have you experienced, too?
  • Which examples of God’s power from the video have you experienced?
  • What other examples of God’s power can you think of from your own life?

God is all-powerful. When we feel powerless, that’s a great chance to look for God’s power at work around us!

God Comforts Elijah - 1 Kings 19:1-18

Here’s what happens…

Elijah is tired. He feels defeated, scared, and alone. God gives him rest and food and then speaks in a gentle whisper, addressing Elijah’s concerns. God is comforting, and he helps Elijah see that he’s not going to lose, he has nothing to fear, and he’s not alone.

Bible Point

God is comforting,so we comfort others.

Family Together Time

- Get comfortable! Put on your most comfortable jammies, gather a lot of pillows and blankets, and bring your favorite stuffed animals. (This might be a great bedtime activity!)

- Once you’re all comfortable, talk about problems or troubles your family has faced before. What did God do to comfort you in those times? (Remember, God may have used other people to bring you comfort.)

- Read 2 Corinthians 1:4 in the box above.

- Brainstorm together a way your family can comfort someone you know based on the comfort God gave you during your hard time.

- Do it! Comfort the person you discussed using the ideas you came up with.

Talk About This…

- What’s the most comfortable place you can think of?

Discuss and Watch “Big & Tall”

We’re learning that God is comforting, so we comfort others.

- Tell about a time you felt really discouraged. Share your own story first.

- What did other people do to comfort you?

Let’s see how a bee comforts a flower in our video.

Watch “Big & Tall.”

- What did you notice about the way Buzzly comforted Flowery?

When Flowery needed comforting, Buzzly tried kind words, then thought of a way to help Flowery solve his problem. Those are two great ways to comfort others! God is comforting, so we comfort others.
