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 Exodus: The Plague of Frogs. (Exodus 8:1-15)
Remind your children that God’s children (The Jews) were now slaves in Egypt. Moses and his brother Aaron have been called by God to tell Pharaoh (Egypt’s king) that He must let the Jews go. Pharaoh had told them NO!
So God brought 10 miraculous plagues to convince Pharaoh to let His people go. Here is the second plague.
Ask the children…
What was going to happen in this plague?
“The Nile River will swarm with frogs. They will come up out of the river and into your palace, even into your bedroom and onto your bed! They will enter the houses of your officials and your people. They will even jump into your ovens and your kneading bowls.“ (Exodus 8:3)
How did the Pharaoh respond this time?
“Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and begged, “Plead with the LORD to take the frogs away from me and my people. I will let your people go, so they can offer sacrifices to the LORD.” (Exodus 8:8)
What happened after the Lord removed this plague of frogs?
“But when Pharaoh saw that relief had come, he became stubborn. He refused to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had predicted.” (Exodus 8:15)
Again Pharaoh was stubborn and would not listen. But God had more miracles left to convince old Pharaoh.
Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world. Glory to Him!!!
