Jesse Tree: Day 16

December 14

Scripture:  1 Kings 18: 17-24, 36-39

Reading:  The people of Israel had forgotten to worship God. Instead, they were worshiping a false god named Baal. God sent his prophet Elijah to remind the people about the true God. But the people didn’t want to listen to Elijah. So Elijah offered to show the people God’s power. He prepared a sacrifice, and the prophets of Baal prepared a sacrifice. The prophets of Baal prayed that their god would send fire to burn the sacrifice, but of course the false god did nothing. But when Elijah prayed, God sent fire.

The Israelites had forgotten God, until God showed them a miracle. God still does miracles today, but we need to remember God even if we don’t see miracles. Our God is a great God; we need to praise God at all times.

Talk About:  What are some things you can do to praise God?

Prayer:  We praise you, powerful God, for all that you have done for us.
