God's Promises Week 2: Jesus Calms The Storm

Hey parents! This week your child learned that God promises to give them peace when they feel overwhelmed. They heard the Bible story Jesus Calms the Storm, too! Use these questions as a guide to talk over this week’s lesson after they’ve watched the video service!

  1. What was your favorite part of the video we just watched?
  2. What was Jesus doing when the storm was raging?
    He was sleeping in the back of the boat. He wasn’t afraid like the disciples were, because he knew he had the power to stop the storm.
  3. What did Jesus say to calm the storm?
    He told the storm to be quiet and still. With just his words, the storm stopped. The sea was calm. He has the power to calm our storms, too.
  4. The Bible story talks about a storm with high waves that were overwhelming their boat. What are some things that are overwhelming or big and scary to you that might be a “storm” in your life?
    Storms can be bad or scary things happening in our life that make us feel overwhelmed, like it’s all too much. This story reminds us that instead of being scared or letting ourselves become overwhelmed by the storm, we can go to God for his peace. Peace is the calm and quiet that comes after a storm, and God promises to give us peace even in the middle of storms!
  5. How can you have this peace from God?
    You can do what the disciples did and ask Jesus for help! You can go to him by praying to him and telling him about the storm in your life. You can ask him to give you peace. You can read the Bible to feel his peace or talk to a friend or adult and ask them to pray with you to feel God’s peace, too.
  6. Our memory verse, Hebrews 6:19, says, “This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.” How does the Bible story Jesus Calms the Storm give you hope?
    It reminds us that God is so powerful. He has the power to calm any storm in our lives. We can have hope that even if things are overwhelming or seem like they’re too much to handle, God can comfort us with his peace and his Word, the Bible.

Take some time to pray as a family. Thank God for his promise that he will bring you peace when you feel overwhelmed. Talk to him about the storm you are facing and how you feel. Ask him to bring you his peace.
