God-Worshiping: Ever-present help.

Memory Verse

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Have you ever needed to trust in God? Have you ever been so worried about something that the only thing you could think of to do was to tell God? If so, then you should meet Abraham.

Abraham had a problem, a big problem: he had no children. Abraham had a great wife, Sarah. He had lots of animals and servants. But he didn't have anyone who would take care of Sarah and everything after he died. Abraham needed a son, but he and Sarah were too old to have a baby. What could he do?

Abraham did the very best thing that someone who is worried about a problem should do: he told God. God told Abraham to trust. Then God told Abraham that he would have a son, and his son would have so many children that one day the number of Abraham's children's children would outnumber the grains of sand on the beach. That's a lot of children!

Abraham had to trust God and wait. Abraham waited until he was 100 years old and Sarah was 90. It was then that Sarah had a baby. Can you imagine how excited Abraham and Sarah were?

Abraham told God about his problem and how worried he was. Abraham listened to God's promise of a son. Then he trusted God. Are you worried about a problem you can't solve by yourself? Do what Abraham did: tell God and then trust Him. God did not let Abraham down. He won't forget you either.
