Last week, we talked about the armor of God and how God has given us ways to be protected. This week, we’re going to look at FEAR! Because even though God has given us truth, righteousness, the gospel, salvation, the Holy Spirit, God’s Word, and faith, sometimes the biggest thing that holds us back is FEAR!
Can you think of some things that YOU are afraid of?
We’re going to watch this video and learn about three men that chose to not be afraid, when they could have been afraid of all sorts of things!
If you were Shadrach, Meshach or Abednego, what would you have been afraid of?
What people thought of you when you didn’t bow? What the king could do to you? The fiery furnace? Those could be really scary things!
I’m sure that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were probably scared in the beginning too. But they knew that they didn’t have to let fear win. Because God is bigger than anything we are ever afraid of and we can trust Him and His power! If you have a hard time with being afraid, I encourage you to learn this Bible verse to remind you of how big and how powerful God is and that He is able to protect you!
When I am afraid,
I will put my trust in You.
In God, whose word I praise,
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not be afraid.
Let’s learn this new song together!
