Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Hailstones From Heaven

Hail from Heaven

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 Joshua:  Hailstones from Heaven defeat the Amorites (Joshua 10:1-11)

After the defeat of Jericho and Ai by God’s People (Israel), the inhabitants of the Promised Land were deathly afraid of them.  5 Amorite kings came together with their forces to fight Gibeon (a city that Israel had a made a peace treaty with) and Joshua and Israel were obliged to help defend Gibeon.

Ask the children…

What did God tell Joshua about this battle?

“’Do not be afraid of them,’ the LORD said to Joshua, ‘for I have given you victory over them. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.’” (Joshua 10:8)

What miraculous thing did God do to help Israel win the battle?

“As the Amorites retreated down the road from Beth-horon, the LORD destroyed them with a terrible hailstorm from heaven that continued until they reached Azekah. The hail killed more of the enemy than the Israelites killed with the sword.” (Joshua 10:11)

How amazing it is to think that God is always there with us in whatever battle we are in and will assist with all the power of heaven.

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