This one year study thru the Bible for kids is designed to hit the highlights and provide practical application. I encourage you to read the whole section of scripture (Psalm 105) while we focus in on just a few verses.
Background: The book of Psalms was written by at least 7 authors. It expresses a range of human emotions from praise to God in good times, fear of enemies in bad times, guilt, anger and an overriding confidence in God’s goodness, majesty and power.
Psalm 105 is like a short history lesson of God’s faithfulness to His people from Abraham through Joshua and the taking of the Promised Land. The Psalmist exhorts us to remember God’s faithful works.
Ask the children…
What does the Pslamist urge God’s people to remember?
“Remember the wonders he has performed,” (Psalm 105:5a)
Specifically what things are we to remember?
“his miracles, and the rulings he has given,” (Psalm 105:5b)
After these words the Psalmist goes on to recount all the promises that God had fulfilled for His people form the Abrahamic covenant to His bringing them victory over their enemies in the Promised Land. How good it is to remember what God has done for us.
Ask your children what things God has done for them over the past week, month, half year. Then spend some time giving God praise for these things. He is faithful to us every moment of every day and we can trust Him at His word.
