Theme: The Bible Is More Than a Book
Plugged Into the Power Source
Scripture: “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31).
Play: Place a drain plug in the kitchen or bathroom sink, and hold a dry tissue flat over the sink. Have each family member place one quarter on the tissue. Slowly drip water onto the tissue and count how many seconds it takes for the quarters to rip through. Repeat this activity using a washcloth in place of the tissue.
Talk: Discuss the different outcomes from this activity. The tissue wasn’t able to support the weight of the quarters for very long, but the washcloth never fell apart. It was strong enough. It’s easy for us to feel strong when things are going well. But when things begin to fall apart around us, we can lose hope.
If you run a long race and start out in the front of the pack, it’s easy to feel encouraged and strong. But as the race goes on and others start to pass you, it’s only natural to feel tired and discouraged. In the same way, when we face a challenge, it might be easy to rely on our own strength or resources for a while. But our energy can eventually wear out. Fortunately, God’s strength never does. When we’ve exhausted all our resources, we can find hope in our all-powerful God.
Pray: Thank God that you can rely on His strength. Ask Him to show you how to rely on Him more.
