Here is another opportunity to remind your children of the gospel, and a chance to build anticipation as we approach Resurrection Day!

He Died for My Sin

To help your children understand that Jesus died for their sins, try this simple activity: Nail two scraps of wood together to form a cross about two feet tall. Hang this cross on a wall or lay it flat on a counter or table. In a basket nearby, place pieces of paper, a pen or pencil, a bag of small nails, and a hammer. When the need for discipline arises during […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 30: Paraphrase

  We’ve done a bunch of observing, and quite a bit of looking at word meanings and at commentaries and cross-references. Does Psalm 91 mean more to you now than it did four weeks ago (or however long you decide to take finishing up the study )? We’re ready to do some reviewing, some praying, and some applying what we’ve learned to our lives. Assignment: Pray. Ask the Lord to help […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 27: Holding Fast in Love

There is so much more we could study, but our time is coming to a close! We’ll just have to leave some ideas and verses for you to study on your own. (I’ll post some ideas at the end of the study.) In the last three verses of Psalm 91, God Himself becomes the speaker, confirming all that has already been said in the psalm. What an outpouring of God’s […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 25: Treading on the Serpent

The devil wants us to think God isn’t keeping His promises when He allows us to suffer. But God called His own Son to suffer — for us — and His Son trusted Him all the way to the cross. He knew that the Father’s plan was good. Thinking of Psalm 91:11-12 and of Satan’s misuse of it when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, the old gospel song, He […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 24: Satan and Psalm 91

When we’re dwelling in the shelter of the Most High, we trust Him, knowing that no real evil can befall us, because God is always using whatever He allows in our lives for our good and His glory. As we saw yesterday in the additional comments in Treasury of David, God even uses dangers in order to protect us. He uses lesser evils to protect us from greater ones. Spending a few nights […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 23: No Evil

We looked yesterday at the bold statements of Psalm 91:7-8. Thousands may be falling all around us, but it will not come near those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High. Not only will those who trust God be preserved in the midst of calamity, but they are assured that they will indeed witness the judgment of the wicked. Let’s continue with verses 9 and 10 today. What […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 22: Really?

We’ve come to the hard parts of Psalm 91. What do we do with verses like this one? “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” And what about verse 10? “No evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.” They are wonderful words, but how do we reconcile them with the reality […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 21: No Fear

  Yesterday we looked at God’s faithfulness — the shield and bulwark that protects us in every circumstance, as we place our trust in Him . (I’ve revised the last two or three paragraphs of yesterday’s lesson. You might want to go back and read those, if you had a hard time understanding my comments.) Today we’re going to look at some of the results of trusting God’s faithfulness and […]

30 Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 18: His Wings

(Note: The links in the children’s lesson of the first post today were not working. This version has corrected links. Please discard the previous email/lesson for today.) We’re over half way through our study of Psalm 91, and we still have so much more to explore! Did you think it would be possible to spend thirty days studying just one chapter of the Bible and not get tired of it? The […]
