Today’s Activity: Make a pretend telescope and look at the night sky.
“Then the LORD took Abram outside and said to him, ‘Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!'” Genesis 15:5 🌟
Abram followed God to the land that He showed him, believing that God would bless all families – your family- through a Child who would be born under one enormous, blazing, brilliant star. The greatest gift God gives you is Himself- His very own presence. -Anne Voskamp, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift
In every heart there lies desires. For Abram, it was a son. God told Abram to go out and look at the stars and reminded him of His promises to him and his wife Sarah. Sometimes, reality bites us and we lose sight of the promises of God. But every night, He shows us stars to remind us that the faithful God of Abram is your God too. Unchanging. He is faithful to fulfill His promises for those who wait on Him. 🌠
When was the last time you went out and looked at the evening sky?
