Daniel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel… These are just some of the faith heroes found in the Major Prophets. Their stories are powerful, and contain wisdom for us and our littles. As you play through these stories I encourage you, Mama, to meditate on the scriptures that pertain to these stories. They are powerful, and leave us with a greater understanding for the heart of God.
The Call of Jeremiah
Jeremiah was just a child when the Lord called him to be a prophet. But he cared what God cared about, and the Lord gave him a message for the people. He wept when the people did not listen. In this devotion we learned that we can care about what God cares about no matter how old we are.
Jeremiah and the Potter’s House
In this devotion we explored pottery, played with playdough, and how God wants to change us to be more like him.
Ezekiel and the Dry Bones
God showed Ezekiel a vision of a valley of dry bones, and in this he shared his plans for Israel. In this devotion we learned that we can trust God, even when we feel hopeless. And we learned that bones hold our bodies up.
The Fiery Furnace
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendago are heroes of prayer. They cared more about God’s heart than the power of the king, and God protected them.
Daniel and the Lions
Daniel is another prayer hero that chose the things of God. When the king threw him in the lions’ den, God protected him. In this devotion we learned about prayer, lions, and the letter “L.”
