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 Daniel: God saves Daniel’s 3 friends from the fiery furnace. (Daniel 3)
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon set up an image of gold and commanded that everyone fall down and worship this image whenever the music played. Daniel’s 3 friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, refused to bow down to anything or anyone but God. The King was furious and threatened that if they did not bow down they would be cast into the fiery furnace.
Ask the children…
How did Daniel’s 3 friends respond to the King?
“’If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty.’” (Daniel 3:17)
After Daniel’s 3 friends were bound up and thrown into the fire, what did Nebuchadnezzar see?
“But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, ‘Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?’ ‘Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,’ they replied. ‘Look!’ Nebuchadnezzar shouted. ‘I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god.’” (Daniel 3:23, 24)
God saved Daniel’s 3 friends from the fiery furnace by coming into the fire and making sure that they not only were saved from the fire but didn’t even smell like smoke. Isn’t it true that nothing is impossible with God?
Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world. Glory to Him!!!
