Lesson Title: God Made the Moon and Stars
Bible Verse: Genesis 1:16 God made two great lights- the greater light for the day and the lesser light for the night. He also made the stars.
God made the sun and the moon and then He put all the stars in their places. If you look up at the sky at night can you see where the stars are? Can you count them? There are very many, too many to count. The Bible tells a story about a man who could not count all the stars either. (Gen.: 15:2-6 & 17 & 21:1-6) Abraham was a man who loved and obeyed God. But Abraham and his wife had no children. They were getting old and they were sad. What if they would never have a child? What should he do? So Abraham asked God! Do you know that it is a good idea to ask God? (Gen. 15:5) God took him outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars-if you can count them.” Then God said, “this is like your children. There will be too many to count.” Quite some time later Abraham and his wife did have a child. God kept His promise. They named the baby Isaac which means laughter. Now they were happy and they knew that God will do what He said He would do. After this Abraham had more children and grandchildren just as God promised until there were more than people can count. When God makes a promise, He will always do what He said. When we go outside and see the many stars in the sky we must remember this story and know that God will keep His promises to us as well. When we go to sleep at night, we can say this Bible verse that promises that God will take care of us. (Psalm 4:8) I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety.
