He Will Deliver You (Come Follow Me Lesson for Kids: May 6-12)

God is a deliverer! It is one of His titles. In the scriptures, we find account after account of the Lord delivering His people as they exercise faith and put their trust in Him. Our children need to know that they too can be delivered, just as the examples in the scriptures!

You will need crayons and a blank sheet of paper for each child. Also, print out one copy of the “Who would you trust to take care of your pet fish?” activity page.


 

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N


Pass out crayons and paper to each child. Set a timer for 2 minutes, and invite each child to draw themselves a new pet fish! Invite them to name their fish, and to write the name of their fish on

the paper.


Now invite children to take turns briefly introducing their pet fish to the group (show and tell).


Take out the “Who would you trust to take care of your pet fish?” activity page. Invite children to imagine that their pet fish are real and that they love their fish very much.


Say: “Your pet fish is very special to you and you love your fish very much. But you are leaving for a week to go on a vacation and you need someone to take care of your fish for you while you are away. Who would you trust to take care of your fish?”


Show the activity page to the children. Read and discuss the attributes of each person and compare them. Then discuss the following questions:


1) If you love your pet fish, and you want your fish to be okay, who would you trust to take care of your fish? (Heavenly Father.)


2) Why would you trust Heavenly Father the most? (Discuss His attributes.)


3) Do you think we can trust Heavenly Father with other things? (Discuss.)


Explain: The scriptures teach us about Heavenly Father. And when we learn about Him, then we can trust Him more and more. Heavenly Father is perfect! He is powerful! He loves and wants us to be happy! And He knows everything! That is why we can trust Heavenly Father.

1) How many of the stories can you remember? (Noah’s Ark, Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Samuel the Lamanite, Jaredite Barges, and Lehi in the Wilderness.)


2) Who helped the people in these stories? (God/Heavenly Father.)


3) What things do you think were hard or scary for Noah? (Discuss.)


4) Did Noah trust God and do it anyway? (Yes.)


5) What happened next? Did God let Noah down? (No, he delivered Noah and his family.)


You may choose to discuss some of the other scripture stories as time permits.
