CB Kids October 30

Today is our final lesson in the "Hear Me Roar" series. Today we learn from the story of Daniel's dream that I don't know the future, but I know God is with me!

Ask your child: What have you liked best about this series? Have you learned some cool animal facts and some amazing things about God?

Have some fun: God sure had fun when he created a platypus! It has a duck's bill, a tail like a beaver, webbed feet like an otter, and short silky fur like a mole. If you were designing an animal, what features would you want it to have; wings? feathers? 
Read these passages from the Bible:
Daniel 7; 2 Thessalonians 1:1-4

Talk about it:
  • How many animals did Daniel see in his dream?
  • Who helped Daniel understand his dream?
  • Who can help you when you don’t understand something?
  • In what ways did Paul, Silas, and Timothy encourage their friends who may have been worried about the future?
  • What can help us feel better about facing unknown situations?

Pray together: God, the Bible says you are the beginning and the end, which means you are, you have, and you always will be with us. You have taken care of me in the past, so I can trust you will help me with whatever comes next. I don’t know the future, but I can live with peace and confidence because I know you are with me! Amen.

Learn the memory verse: Nahum 1:7 (NIV)
“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who trust in him.”

Recap: This dream was a message of hope at the time for Daniel and God’s people, all of whom were forced away from their homes and were living under the reign of unfair rulers. In the New Testament, It must have been very difficult wondering if someone was going to arrest you or make your life more difficult because of your faith. I think the reason they were able to remain so steadfast is because they trusted in Jesus. Nothing surprises Jesus. He isn’t shaken by what shakes us. He doesn’t give in to fear but overcomes it, and teaches us to do the same. That’s why I can say this boldly: I don’t know the future but I know God is with me!
