Hey HOPE KIDS and families!! 🙋🏻♀️ Mrs. Christy here sharing our Bible Story for this week. We are continuing our Lessons on how "God Formed a Nation". Parents, you will be able to show the Bible Story video then read the summary below with your kids. Also, find all the graphics in the comments. Once you've finished check out the "BUILD A FAMILY ACTIVITY" at the end! Have FUN! First, we learned of God's Covenant with Abraham. God promised to give Abraham a family as numerous as the STARS in the SKY! 🌟After God tested Abraham with his son Isaac on the Mountain, Abraham named the place “The LORD Will Provide.” Today we learn how God had kept His promise to bless Abraham. Abraham said to his servant, “Promise that you will go to my family and find a wife for Isaac.” The servant promised and went on his journey until he came to a well. The servant prayed, “God, help me. When women come to this well, let the one you want Isaac to marry give my camels water.” That is what happened! Rebekah gave the servant and the camels a drink. The servant was so happy, he praised God. He gave Rebekah bracelets and a ring. The servant went to Rebekah’s house and told her family everything that happened. Rebekah was faithful to God as she traveled with the servant back to Canaan. Isaac married Rebekah and loved her. 🤵🏼👰🏼 📖Memory Verse: 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:29, NIV ➡️Story Point: God makes and keeps His promises. ✝️Christ Connection: God provided Rebekah as a wife for Isaac as part of His covenant to bless the whole world through Abraham’s family. One day, Jesus would be born into Abraham’s family as the promised Savior!! 🤔Let’s review our big picture question, Why can we trust God? We can trust God because He is faithful. God showed His faithfulness when God gave Isaac a wife. 🎨BUILD A FAMILY ACTIVITY: Give your child a piece of drawing paper and crayons, coloring pencils, or markers and ask them to draw their families. They can include anyone and everyone! The more the merrier! When finished remind them that this is what Abraham's family looked like and one-day JESUS was born into his family just like you were born into yours! God kept his promise and gave Abraham a family as numerous as the Stars in the Sky!! 🌠 Bible Story Scriptures: 42 “When I came to the spring today, I said, ‘LORD, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please gr ant success to the journey on which I have come. 43 See, I am standing beside this spring. If a young woman comes out to draw water and I say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar,” 44 and if she says to me, “Drink, and I’ll draw water for your camels too,” let her be the one the LORD has chosen for my master’s son.’ 45 “Before I finished praying in my heart, Rebekah came out, with her jar on her shoulder. She went down to the spring and drew water, and I said to her, ‘Please give me a drink.’ 46 “She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder and said, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too.’ So I drank, and she watered the camels also.
