Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Elisha Predicts Pools Of Water Will Rise From Dry Ground

Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important because it helps them to see how nothing is impossible for God.  If God can do miracles in the Bible, He can do them in our children’s lives today.  Here is an easy way to do that interactively.

Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of 2 Kings:   Elisha predicts pools of water will rise from dry ground (2 Kings 3:9-20)

God brought together the armies of the king of Judah, Israel and Edom to fight the Moabites.  While they were traveling to battle, they had to pass through a desert where there was no water.  They didn’t know what to do so they called out for Elisha, the man of God, to give them guidance.

Ask the children…

What did Elisha predict would happen?

“’This is what the LORD says: This dry valley will be filled with pools of water! You will see neither wind nor rain, says the LORD, but this valley will be filled with water. You will have plenty for yourselves and your cattle and other animals.’” (2 Kings 3:16, 17)

How hard was this miracle for the Lord?

“’But this is only a simple thing for the LORD, for he will make you victorious over the army of Moab!’”  (2 Kings 3:18)

What did the Lord do?

“The next day at about the time when the morning sacrifice was offered, water suddenly appeared! It was flowing from the direction of Edom, and soon there was water everywhere.”  (2 Kings 3:20)

Nothing is too hard for the Lord.  What in your life seems too hard for the Lord to handle?  Just try Him out and see if He doesn’t answer.

Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world.  Glory to Him!!!
