If we don't teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.

Because GOD IS LOVE, I am never alone.

Preparation: Have you ever wondered if your mom had eyes in the back of her head? Unlike Moms, God doesn't need eyes in the back of His head. He's right beside us everywhere, all the time. There's no better source of accountability or security.

Knowing that God is Everywhere, our kids can be secure in His Faithfulness because He's never somewhere else when they need Him by their side. His Power and Love are always with them because God is always with them. Teach your children that God is with them, Everywhere--All the Time, and they are NEVER alone!

Read the Bible Memory Verse below.

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
(Proverbs 15:3)
When I say "go," everyone take a big breath and hold it for 3 seconds. "Ready, go!"

Great job! When we took that breath, air filled our lungs. Was there still any air left in the room? (Yes!) Of course!

If you go into the other room, will there be air there? (Yes!)
If you're all by yourself at school, at church, or in your house is air there? (Yes!)

Like the air we can't see, God is also there. We are going to begin exploring God's omnipresence. That's a big word to describe the fact that God is everywhere, all the time.

Listen to God describe His omnipresence in Psalm 139:7-10:

"Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me."

Is there any place you can think of where God is not there? (No!)
  • NOTE: If someone answers "hell." tell them it is one place where God does not live, but He sees and knows what happens there all the time.
  • Can you think of some reasons why a person would want to get away from God? (They want to do something they know is wrong; they want to rule their life rather than allowing God to rule it; they're mad at Him.)
  • Is there anything that makes you uncomfortable with the fact that God is always with you, and that you can never escape from His presence?
  • God is with us, in every part of our lives. Even when we die, we are never alone. God is with us.

These verses give two other reasons that God's constant presence is a good thing.
What do you think they are? ( review the last 2 lines of the above verse)
  1. He will guide us
  2. He will give us strength

If God is not always with you all the time, you could never be sure He would be there when you need Him. What do you like about God being everywhere? Is there anything you don't like about God being everywhere?

Sometimes you can feel alone--even in a room full of people. But God is with you everywhere and all the time! You are never alone!

Thank God He is always with you. Name one place that you are particularly thankful that He is there. (The doctor's office, school, your bedroom at night.)
