Sky Ranch Family Devotional…God’s Direction for You, with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Fun Icebreaker: Who is a famous person that has inspired you in your life? Why?

Question: Why is God trustworthy?

Topic 3: Trust—God Wants You to Know Him 

Today’s Big Idea: God’s Direction for You

Share with your family that God is trustworthy because He clearly provides written directions for the right way to live life. He cares about you and wants you to know His thoughts. He has provided His written Word to be useful and equip you for living your life.
The questions give your family the opportunity to share about how each person grows in wisdom and training through God’s Word. Life is meant to be a journey that allows you to mature at God’s pace. He wants you to grow into the person that you are designed to be. God has worked out a plan for each person’s life and you get to discover the plan that He has put together for you! He doesn’t leave you all alone and confused; He has given you directions in His written Word. Talk to your family and explain that it is normal to have confusion as you discover your life’s direction. Sometimes the path is clear while other times it is not. Be patient and pray. God will give you direction if you ask for help.

Talk with God: Read scriptures and questions below.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NISB): “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

Walk with God:

Discuss with younger kids: God speaks to you through the Bible. He gives you help and instruction. God’s desire to share good direction with you is reason to trust Him. You can understand His message to you. Do you have His message hidden in your heart? What are some of His messages from the Bible that have helped you?

Discuss with older kids: Have you planned out your entire life and know exactly what you want to do? Probably not. It can be hard and confusing with so many possibilities ahead of you. Today there are so many choices it can be confusing—clothing choices alone can be challenging. Future friends, activities, college, career, marriage may seem almost impossible to consider right now. God cares for you and helps you by giving you written direction. This is reason to trust Him. Do you think the Bible is relevant to today? How can scripture written so long ago point you in the right direction now? What scripture have you found helpful direction?

Prayer suggestion: Pray for God’s direction in your life. 

I will be praying for you!
