Note: You can find part 1 of this lesson plan here.
Here is a 15- to 20-minute lesson plan that highlights the following lesson objective: “Understand that difficulties, trials, and obstacles are a part of life, and through learning to work through them, one can gain valuable understanding through these experiences; study and memorize Bible verses upon which this principle is based.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Overcoming Obstacles-2a)
Read “God Gives Victory.”
Talk about how God can help to give us victory when we call on Him. There is nothing that He cannot help us to overcome!
Recall a time in your life, or help your child recall a time in their life, when God helped to give victory when something seemed impossible to overcome or to get through.
Bring to your child’s attention that, again, not all obstacles are physical in nature, but that two boys in the videos shared some very good tips on how to overcome an obstacle or adversity, whatever it may be. Help your child to recall some of these tips: Focus on the positive, count your blessings, overcome the obstacle; don’t let it overcome you, see the good that has come out of your adversity.
