God has a plan for you

Think about it— What do you want to be when you grown up?  Do you know what your future holds?  God has a special plan for each and every one of us.  What do you think God has planned for you?

What does the bible say?

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Read 2 Peter 3:8-11 then discuss the questions together:

What does God want for all people?

How does he  want us to live our lives?

How do you live a ‘holy’ life?

Read Ephesians 6:1-4 then discuss the questions together:

What does God wants kids to do?

What is the reward for honoring your parents?

How can you honor your parents?

Final thought:

So you know God has plans for you, but do you know what they are?  As you read this week, the first thing God wants for you to do is to love and follow him, and honor your parents.  As you are faithful in that while you are young, God will reveal more of His plan for your live as you grow up.  He will not hide his plan for you, but sometimes you may have to ask Him what He would want you to do.

You can decide today that you want to follow God’s plan for your life.  Start by praying and asking Him to guide you toward His plan.  Then be faithful in honoring your parents and reading your bible and praying, and God will be faithful and lead you where he wants you to be.
