“My God will meet all my needs,” (Phillipians 4:19, NIrV). What a powerful thought. God will meet all our needs. Notice the verse says needs and not wants. That’s hard for adults to remember, even more for preschoolers. So this month, we will talk about our basic needs and stories where God provided.
We start the month with Jesus telling us not to worry (something I need to hear often) because if God provides for the birds and the flowers, won’t He do even more for you? The preschoolers will then hear about Elijah, both how God provided ravens to feed him in the wilderness and the widow with what she needed to make bread for him and her family. These are great stories to show how God provides for our basic needs.
Finally, we’ll tell the story of Abraham, and how he trusted God to provide for him even when God asked him to move and promised what he couldn’t believe. God will meet all my needs. That’s the truth, friends. You better believe it.
