Family Devotions - I Spy God!

These Family Devotions are designed to help us see God and know Him through connecting His Word with our everyday surroundings and then share this with our kids!   God has placed His identifying marks all over our world and lives to point us to Him.  Seeking to understand the Bible is seeking to know Him. 

Each devotion includes a Scripture to think about, an object to connect with the lesson of it, and optional ideas for activity and fun together.

These family Bible devotions are tools to help you and your family become aware of God's presence as we sit at home, walk be the way, as we go to bed and as we get up.  God desires to be involved throughout our lives not just on Sundays or Family Nights alone.

Let's open our eyes to recognizing God's presence and work in our everyday surroundings. God is near.  One of His names points to this truth - Jehovah Shammah.  Are we recognizing and living in His presence?

These fun object lesson devotionals are meant to be hands-on and applicable,  creative in helping our families grow in faith together while reminding us of His presence through our everyday surroundings. 

"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Family Devotions - Learning Colors

"Preparing students for time and eternity" is the overall goal of a Christian school in our community.  As Christian families we can connect what our children are learning in school with teaching them about God.

The following family devotions will help your family think of God and truths from His Word as they see the different colors all around them.

Green - Psalm 23:2

green leaves

Green seems to be such a peaceful color; this may be why David, the author of Psalm 23 imagines lying down in green pastures where the sheep found both food and rest in a safe place guarded by their shepherd.

Read Psalm 23 together and list not only things that are green, but places your child feels safe and protected.  Encourage them to remember Jesus is their Good Shepherd!

Red - John 3:16

red boards

Red, the color of love.  It's the color we use when drawing hearts. It's also the color of blood which represents life.

Read John 3:16 together and talk about how God sent His Son Jesus to pay the price for our disobedience with His life's blood.

Draw and color red hearts as you list together God's gifts and blessings to us.

Jesus said "I Am..." 7 Family Devotions

The Gospel of John records seven "I Am" statements made by Jesus in reference to Himself.  Jesus often used objects and stories as reference points for His listeners to connect with His message.

Both objects and stories not only pull listeners into a lesson, they lock the lesson in our memory for better recall.  Following are seven ways Jesus described Himself.  Use these to introduce Him to your family and also help them continue to grow in their understanding and knowing Him.

"As We Go Along the Way"
- Family Devotions

Not only do we have a myriad of everyday objects around us with which we can connect God's Word, but even in the things we do together can help us teach our children the Bible, God's love story to us, as we go along the way!

"Along the Way" family Bible devotions change busy times into moments which can impact eternity.  Whether our kids are taking a bath, cooking a meal or running errands with us, fishing or walking down the beach, we can connect these moments with knowing God.  Each includes Bible stories and Scripture with fun activities to do together.
