God Is Faithful


Teach your children about God with the story of Joshua’s strength that comes from God and not from his own abilities.


Thank God for His faithfulness—for being strong when we are weak and for being with us no matter where we are.


Go on a scavenger hunt in your home. Each person should find one thing that is “strong." As a family, talk about the items you gathered and why you chose them. Then test each item to prove that it is strong in some way.


In Joshua 1:7, God tells Joshua to "be strong and very courageous.” Joshua’s strength comes from God and not from his abilities. In the same way, people today are asked by God to do things such as loving their neighbor, doing what is right by their enemy and feeding the poor. When you allow God to strengthen you, He freely demonstrates that He is faithful to you. Because of Jesus' example and God's strength, people can do what God requires, even when their natural inclination may be to love only those who are good to them, to do what is right by themselves and to feed only their own friends. In 1 Thessalonians 5:24, the apostle Paul says, "The one who calls you is faithful." God will never ask you to do something without faithfully giving you the strength to complete the task.
