This is the third of the teens three part bible study series on putting on the Full Armor of God! It includes lessons on Prayer, Putting on the Armor, and Thanksgiving, as they are taught in the book of Ephesians, chapter six.
God wants you to praise Him and thank Him
for the good times and for the battles too! It is in times of
troubles that you learn to know Him better. That's because you
can see all the wonderful ways He brings your help to you! You
can see His mighty power working for the good! When you trust
Him for small things, it will help you have faith and strength
to trust God during really hard times. Seeing and thinking about
how good God is will help you to have courage. When He brings
your help, remember to thank Him and praise Him for always being
When we depend on Him and trust Him, He
will show us great and mighty things. Praying and reading God's
Word will help us know how much God loves us! It will also teach
us to love Him unconditionally. This is the way God loves us!
He allows us to suffer the consequences of our sins and the sins
of others, but He never leaves us to face the battles alone.
Remember to thank God for sending Jesus to save us and give us
victory over all of our battles.
This battle is over for Joshua Jack Rabbit
and Liam Leapfrog. Because they fought the battle together, they
are better friends. They have seen God's help and now their faith
will be stronger when other problems come. The next time they
need help, they will remember how important the Shield of Faith
is! They will not forget to thank God for giving them the victory
over the battle. The Critters praise God for His faithfulness.
God wants us to face our battles, but not alone. We must ask Him for help! He might send angels to protect us. He may send a friend or family member or maybe a church family member will help us win the battle. Jesus may fly down on the wings of angles Himself. He promises He will never leave us nor forsake us. Thank God and trust Him no matter what happens. His love never fails!
