This family devotional was adapted from our Sunday school curriculum My Purpose Will Stand.
All parents want their children to feel secure. How reassuring would it be for your child to know that nothing is outside God's control.
Every person, every circumstance, and every action is part of God's plan—a plan that works all things for the good of those who love him. That is God's providence, a doctrine that brings us joy even as it staggers our understanding.
Sally Michael believes that a child who can embrace God's providence can rest in God's sovereign care, and she uses simple truths to help you explain God's providence to your children.
This full-color, illustrated guide to how God's providence works in the world is written for parents to stimulate a lively discussion with early elementary children about resting in God's sovereign care and includes application questions and activity suggestions with each chapter. (120 pages)
Sally Michael has written a primer on God's providence that is richly biblical and theological. This is a helpful resource for parents to introduce their children to God's constant watching and working in our world, and one that provides numerous opportunities for reflection and discussion. I heartily commend it.
