Elementary School (Burn Notice)

Our Bible story this week tells when God met Moses at the burning bush. God revealed to Moses who He was and helped Moses begin to understand how amazing He is. Moses gained the determination he needed to lead God’s people out of slavery because he trusted our powerful God. God is amazing, incredible, mysterious, wonderful—awesome! And He loves us! So when He asks us to do something, we can know He will give us the strength to see it through and be with us through the journey. We probably won’t have to fight a Pharaoh or part a sea, but whatever obstacles we face—even if we get tired, confused, lonely or scared—we can keep on going because God will give us what we need to do what He says.

Bible Story: Burn Notice (Moses at the burning bush) • Exodus 3:1-15 (Exodus 4–11,14,16,19 supporting)

Bottom Line: Keep going even when the job is bigger than you think.

Memory Verse: “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9, NIrV

Life App: Determination—deciding it’s worth it to finish what you’ve started.

Basic Truth: I can trust God no matter what.
