Ark Kids Junior: I’m Part of God's Big Plan
Most of us can probably appreciate a good plan. While we might not all enjoy sticking to a given plan, it’s hard to ignore the benefits. For those responsible for creating a particular plan there can be a lot of pressure… What have I overlooked? What are the factors beyond my control? What if the plan fails? Thankfully, in the grand scheme of things the ultimate plan is not riding on our shoulders. When we realize that our good God who knows everything has a master plan for this world, as well as individual roles for each of us to play, we can breathe a sigh of relief. God’s got this, and He’s got me. When we decide to become a friend and follower of Jesus and accept our assignments in His big plan, we embark on a grand adventure. He assures us that there will be twists and turns along the way, but we are never without hope and help. This is not only good news for us, but for the kids with whom we are connecting each week. Part of God’s big plan for us is to encourage kids to engage in His big plan. As we do we are helping kids discover and live out their God-given destinies, just like Joseph. Living life with hope, purpose, and intentionality is powerful and can actually change the world. When we dream big, give our best, listen to God, and are quick to forgive, we will find ourselves smack-dab in the middle of God’s Big Plan!
