As your kids phase out of using the kids Bible, what do you have them use next and where do they go from there? I had this question come up in me, which is why I came up with a Daily Bible Reading Plan for Kids.

Be sure to grab your FREE Daily Bible Reading Plan for Kids below!

What Big Kids Bible Do You Get?

My kids were ready to move on and get a big kids Bible, but which Bible do we get?

I had a few things in mind that this new Bible needed to include, which were:

  • easy reading English words
  • color and pictures to break up all the text
  • interesting pieces of info for interest and study

After some research, it seemed that the Adventure Bible was the way to go, so we chose the New International Reader’s Version being that our kids are beginning readers.

When we received the Bible, I wondered, “What now?!”

Am I to ask my kids to read this really big, overwhelming Bible?
How do I make sure they read it?
Really, what’s the intention here? What’s the purpose of them having a Bible now?

With these questions in mind, we asked ourselves what we thought our kids should gain from having their own Bible and reading it. And more than that, how do they cultivate a personal relationship with the Lord?

Why Do We Give Our Kids A Bible?

As parents, we give our kids a Bible to:

  • gain a love for reading God’s Word
  • get to know their heavenly Father
  • create a discipline in spending time with God
  • hear from God and recognize His voice
  • experience God’s presence
  • claim and declare the promises of God
  • be inspired by the Holy Spirit and His gifts

We LOVE to study the Bible in our home making it fun for our kids, which is why I created these Bible studies for kids. But, we shouldn’t be using Bible studies as a way to replace the discipline of reading the Word personally.

What God wants to say to us individually and personally is a really BIG deal. There is no junior Holy Spirit. Our kids have the same Spirit residing in them, as in us, so the best thing we can do is to start training them to develop their relationship with the Lord.

Our Role In Discipling Our Children

We’re called to disciple our children and train them up in the ways of the Lord.

We have such a privilege and honor in modeling and teaching our children how to cultivate their relationship with the Holy Spirit. We’re modeling everything about this whether it’s intentional or not — from worship to prayer, reading the Word and interacting with the Holy Spirit — your children are learning what to do and perhaps, what not to do.

So here’s how we’ll be helping our children develop a love for the Word and cultivate their relationship with the Lord:

  • Reading both the Old and New Testament, while keeping their tender hearts away from some of the scripture that is appropriate for older ages.
  • Taking turns reading the Bible using the Daily Bible Reading Plan For Kids below. We’ll read either in the morning or before bed.
  • Praying together using the prayer cards from this Bible study.
  • Memorizing scripture

If you’re looking to be more purposeful in your Bible reading time, consider keeping a Bible study journal.

Why Study the Bible?

There’s something that happens on the inside of us when we read the Word of God. 

We become forever changed as a result of what He’s spoken over our lives through His Word.

When someone suggests a Bible study, those words alone can seem so formal and stuffy. But, it doesn’t have to be.

Being a student of the Word is to take the Word of God and dig in; to be inquiry, to wonder, to contemplate, but most importantly, to have your heart open to allow Holy Spirit to speak to you concerning your life and those around you.

Why Keep a Bible Study Journal?

There have been times when I’m digging into the Word of God and a word or sentence strikes me. This can happen for a few reasons:

  • I don’t know the meaning of a word
  • I don’t understand the phrase that’s being said
  • the Lord wants me to dig deeper into Him, or
  • the Lord is revealing something to me

I have to admit, sometimes I write down what the Lord has shown me (either on my phone or another notebook), and other times I haven’t.

But, this has to change. I need to be more disciplined in this area, because God’s Word is light and life. Do you feel the same?

 

Items To Begin Your Bible Study

Here are just 5 simple items to gather to begin your Bible study time:

1. Choose your Bible

If you’re looking to find a Bible, I highly recommend NKJV and ESV, but also The Passion Translation and Amplified to help expand and capture the meaning of the scriptures.

I also like to have a concordance (which digs into the root meaning from the greek or hebrew language), and a dictionary which helps to open up words further.

2. Choose a Bible study journal

3. Writing tools

Grab your favorite writing tool and Bible highlighters

4. Grab a tea or coffee

Optional of course, but having a warm cup of tea or coffee is a wonderful compliment to Bible reading and study time!

5. Devote time

This is truly the most difficult part.

Our lives are busy with schedules that need attention, phones with notifications, laundry that needs folding and serving others in many ways.

So YOUR devotion to the Lord will take self discipline over motivation to spend time with Him.

How To Start Your Bible Study Time

Remove Distractions

Turn your phone to silent or sleep mode. Nothing is more distracting that a phone notification going off and the need to check it.

Start With Prayer

Start your Bible reading time in prayer.

Wouldn’t you say that we struggle more with believing God at His Word? 

We are affected and infected by this world’s way of doing things and that changes our perspective and view of God at times. Prayer connects our heart to Him again where we can declare and speak life over what He says, inquiring of the Lord and asking of Him so that we can hear from Him.

Bible Study Journal Template

If you’re looking for a template to follow when it comes to studying the Bible, below are 4 simple R’s you can implement in your Bible study journal or by using the FREE printable below.

READING

Write down the Bible passages that you’re reading. 

REFLECTION

As your read the Word of God, a verse or scripture may jump out at you. You can choose to highlight that verse in your Bible, or write it down. Even if you don’t know what the verse means, or what to do with it, but it just stands out, it’s important to write the reference down.

Below are some questions you can have your heart ponder as your read the Bible:

  • Why do you think this passage stood out to you? Is the Lord revealing something to your heart?
  • Is there a word you need to dig into? Perhaps defining the word and discovering the root would help open up the scripture passage further.
  • Is there a command to obey?
  • Is there a promise to claim?
  • Is there a sin to avoid?
  • Is there a lesson to learn?
  • Is there a new truth to carry?

REVELATION

And then there’s the revelation that comes from reading the word of God.

Revelation is such a deep and intimate experience with the Lord as Holy Spirit reveals the Word to you personally. What is revealed to you about God’s Word is not the same for everyone, which is what makes it such a personal experience.

Holy Spirit wants to reveal Himself to you, along with:

  • the deep things of God with you
  • the Lord’s heart concerning His nature, character and good plans for you.
  • a share a word that’ll encourage you and lift you up.
  • a word that comes with the spiritual gift of knowledge, discernment, wisdom, healing, prophecy, etc.
  • dreams and visions with you
  • things to come with you

Write down what God has revealed to your heart. This is what brings life, wonder and awe, praise and worship, and thanksgiving to our great God!

RESPONSE

Write down what your response is to the Lord concerning His Word:

  • will you give Him thanksgiving?
  • will you give Him adoration?
  • will you give Him praise?
  • will you trust Him more?

Don’t let the moments pass by when the Lord is sharing something so sweet – the incorruptible word of God.

30 Bible Verses About Peace + FREE Printable

*This post contains affiliate links. Please read disclosure policy.*

We’re all inundated by everything around us and the pressure of these things can get to us. And then we lose our peace. Suddenly we feel anxious, incapable of handling the simplest of tasks and stress overwhelms us.

Is this what God wanted for you? Absolutely not!

So let’s change this (because it can be changed), and live in the peace of God that we’re meant to.

Get your free printable on the 30 Bible verses about peace below

What is Peace?

Peace is often thought of as a state of being such as quiet or tranquility, or the absence of stress or anxiety. These are true, but not the fullness of peace.

When we look at the meaning of peace to its core in the Hebrew, the word for peace is Shalom, and it means: wholeness, wellness, well-being, safe, happy, friendly, favor, completeness, to make peace, peace offering, secure, to prosper, to be victorious, to be content, tranquil, quiet, and restful.

The noun shalom is derived from the verbal root shalam, which means “to restore,” in the sense of replacing or providing what is needed in order to make someone or something whole and complete.

So shalom is used to describe those of us who have been provided all that is needed to be whole and complete and break off all authority that would attempt to bind us to chaos. (source)

30 Bible Verses About Peace + FREE Printable

But, in all of this, you can’t experience these attributes of peace in your life IF you don’t come to know and be intimately acquainted with the Person that is peace, Jesus. Peace….

  • is the substance of the atmosphere of heaven
  • tames every bit of opposition around a person them
  • iIs the Prince of peace that crushes the power of darkness
  • is the umpire of our minds

Peace isn’t the absence of noise, conflict or war; it’s the presence of Someone.

30 Bible Verses About Peace + FREE Printable

Why Peace Is Important

If peace is a Person and the substance of heaven, which is what each of us as children of God should contain, the enemy wants nothing more than for you to disconnect from Jesus.

And how you can disconnect from Jesus is by allowing the enemy to expose you to anxiety and stress.

Anxiety is meditating and magnifying on an idea over the promises of God.

It’s difficult to operate out of a place of health and wholeness when you’re filled with fear. Yes, perfect love casts out all fear, but if we give our heart and thoughts to anxiety and stress, which is from the root of fear, it will infect love. And the two cannot co-exist.

The Lord longs to express His very nature, character and glory thru us, His children. But, this takes our full surrender to Him which means that we need to be free from anxiety and stress.

You Can’t Hold Onto Worry Expecting Things To Change

Have you ever been so worried about something, that after feeling unwell, having headaches, changes in appetite, etc. you decide that it just isn’t worth it anymore. And finally, you’ve come to the end of your rope and decided that it’s time to let go and let God?

When we get to this place, we determine that we can’t have it both ways.

We can’t ask the Lord to lead our lives while worry about something that we can’t control and aren’t willing to give to the Lord. There’s only one steering wheel in life. You can’t give the wheel to Lord while holding onto it yourself. Erma Bombeck once said,

“Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.”

This quote is so true. When you let go of your worries and your cares casting it over to Jesus, isn’t there something so supernatural about how you begin to feel?

You start to feel like a weight came off your shoulders and like you’re not preoccupied with consuming thoughts. That feeling comes from surrender and a yielded spirit to the Lord. Since we can’t do anything about things in our life anyway, why don’t we just allow the Lord to do it. This is what the Lord CAN work with and wants to work with.

How Peace Can Be Achieved

Firstly, getting to know the Person, Jesus, is how you can begin to experience true peace. And you begin to know who Jesus is by what He did. This comes from reading the Word of God and finding out Jesus’ character and nature.

Peace Which Surpasses All Understanding

What you meditate, speak and think on will have an affect on your source of peace.

Let’s say you’re constantly bothered by a bill that needs to be paid, a report from the doctor, how your child is doing at school, things you’re not getting done, etc. By allowing these thoughts to spin in your head, you’re actually meditating on them.

When we meditate on anxious thoughts, effective prayers can’t be prayed that are filled with thanksgiving and faith. These prayers can only be prayed from a heart that embraces God’s promises and trusts in Him. The peace of God then which surpasses all understanding will guard and protect your heart and mind.

Peace which surpasses all understanding is from the peace of God, and it comes by what you fix your thoughts on. Here, we can see that your mind needs to be set and fixed on things that are true, noble, just, pure, love, good report, virtue and praiseworthy.

Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV says,

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

So it’s key to keep your mind fixed on Jesus, the Prince of Peace, the promises of God and allow this to reign superior in your life. Anything outside of the Word will have us feel defeated and hopeless, stressed and anxious because we’ve bought into something that’s inferior.

Based on the Word of God, peace:

  • is a Person
  • is a gift
  • is a fruit
  • is a covenant
  • is to be sought after
  • comes from being spiritually minded
  • is to be lived in
  • was made by the blood of Jesus
  • is the kingdom of God
  • is to be preached
  • is authored by God
  • surpasses understanding and guards our hearts and minds

The Parable Of The Seed And The Sower For Kids

The Parable Of The Seed And The Sower For Kids

*This post contains affiliate links. Please read disclosure policy.*

Did you know that there is a parable in the Bible that is the most important? It trumps all parables in fact! Jesus said it this way in Mark 4:13,

“Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?”

What Is The Parable Of The Seed And The Sower?

The parable of the seed and the sower is about the Word of God being sown in our hearts with gladness and producing fruit.

It’s plain and simple, but not easy. Why?

Because YOU determine if the seed will be planted in your heart or not. Yes, it’s you… not Jesus.

  • What Is The Seed? The Word of God.
  • Who Is The Sower? You.
  • Where Does The Seed Grow? In your heart.
  • Who Makes The Seed Grow? Holy Spirit.
  • Why Is The Seed Important? It’s a matter of life and death.
  • What Is Being Produced Out of Us From The Seed? Fruit.
  • What Is The Fruit? The fruit is what the Spirit in you, the work which His presence within, accomplishes and produces, which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

Dig deeper and study the parable of The Seed And The Sower with your kids! #biblestudyforkids #christianfamily #theseedandthesower #parable

What Does The Parable Of The Seed And The Sower Mean?

You are the sower of the Word of God. And how your receive the Word determines whether it’ll take root in your heart or be snatched away by the evil one, Satan.

This is a difficult truth because it’s easy to be passive than active. The work of the Word of God comes from us and our intentional deposit of the Word. Yet, the increase of that Word in our hearts is not done by us, but by the power of the Holy Spirit.

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 NKJV

Why Is The Word of God Important To Us?

The Word of God is powerful.

Kids face a lot in life. They’re navigating their friendships and relationships with others. They’re working at identifying who they are in Christ. They’re trying to figure out why they’re here on this earth. It’s not easy.

And not only that, we as adults are still doing this.

But, through all of these hardships and difficulties, there’s nothing more powerful that teaching your kids that the Bible contains all the scriptures they need for life and godliness. That with the help of the Holy Spirit, He’ll bring scriptures to our remembrance, He’ll comfort, lead and guide us, and the Lord will never leave them nor forsake them.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

But, how can they learn this without being taught? That’s where you come in!

How We Do We Help Our Kids Sow The Seed?

We firstly help our kids sow the seed (plant the Word of God into their hearts) by modeling it.

If you yourself don’t get into the Word of God, how will your kids recognize that it’s important for them? It’s necessary to explain to your kids why it’s important for them to get into God’s Word.

And then, you’re needed in this process. Kids won’t just do it on their own.

It’s just like responsibilities and chores. Will they always do it on their own? Do they need incentive and encouragement to keep at it? Absolutely!

How many of us as adults are still trying to be more self-disciplined when it comes to prayer, reading the Word, worship, etc.

If we struggle with consistency, how much more don’t our children struggle with it.

We can help our kids learn about the importance of God’s Word with an easy-to-understand Bible Study.

*This post contains affiliate links. Please read disclosure policy.*

It can feel really scary knowing what our children are subject to these days. While there are so many amazing advances in the world we live in, we also know the enemy has more routes than ever to steal, kill and destroy our lives, and that the desires of the flesh are knocking at the door.

If you are looking to help your children:

  • remained rooted and grounded in the One who is Love
  • encountering God personally and knowing Him intimately
  • develop good and Godly character
  • be a good friend
  • experience quality friendships and relationships
  • value purity

…then prayer is your weapon!

Why Should We Pray For Our Children?

You can be sure that the enemy will come to attack your children. You can also be sure that your children will want to give into the cravings of their flesh. BUT, we have a weapon that is MORE POWERFUL than the enemy or sin and that is PRAYER!

You are a soldier going into a battle for your children and when you pray, you are engaging in that spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:18 (NIV) says,

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Both the enemy and sin are knocking at the door of our children's lives, and the weapon we have as parents is prayer. + FREE 30-Day Praying For Your Children Scripture Challenge #Christianparenting #PrayingMom #Prayer #RaisingKids #Prayingforyourchildren

Why Is Prayer Important?

Prayer is important to the life of a believer; it’s our way of communicating with our Father, through the Holy Spirit.

What Does Prayer Do?

Prayer effectively helps you to:

  • seek guidance, wisdom and discernment from the Lord
  • hear His will concerning the day
  • petition the Lord based on His promises
  • impact the earth with heaven’s influences
  • stand in the gap for others
  • keeps our heart and mind focused on God

Prayer Is Our Weapon

The enemy, Satan, is seeking whom he may devour. He’s not a physical being; he’s a spirit. And he’s not just seeking anybody; he’s seeking those who are living for Jesus.

The enemy is not a creator like our Father, but he’s a distorter of what is already created.

For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (TPT)

The way that Satan attacks our children is through every route possible…social media, movies, family, friends, their own thoughts, church family, other kids they don’t know but meet, etc. And not every attack we experience is by route of the enemy; sometimes it’s by our own doing and choices which are out of our sinful, fleshy, carnal nature.

We experience the enemy’s attacks or our own sinful desires in our everyday life and the reason for this is to get us off God’s good plans for our lives. The enemy wants to distort God’ loving nature. And instead of being led by the Spirit, what our flesh wants to do is often more appealing and the easy route.

Our children need our prayers for:

  • knowing God more
  • protection from the evil one
  • seek the kingdom of God first
  • loving God and others
  • hearing God’s voice
  • thinking on the right things
  • the fruit of the spirit
  • purity
  • honoring their parents
  • accepting Jesus as their Lord
  • peace
  • restful sleep
  • God’s plans for them
  • following Jesus
  • character
  • their hearts

Restored

In the beginning God created man.
An intimate relationship He wanted to have.

The serpent came with a question, asking Eve,
“Did God say of every tree you shall not eat?”

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food
Eve thought she would be wise and so she chewed.

She gave it to her husband and he did also eat
Then their eyes were opened and they became afraid.

Sin now entered in because of disobedience,
Man was separate from God and lived under the curse.

An offering was needed to cleanse us from our sin,
A curtain was set-up to divide God and man.

Because God is who He says He is, He always had a plan
It was to redeem His people with His one and only Son, a man.

Now it was time for Jesus to come on the scene
By the power of the Holy Spirit, Mary would conceive.

Jesus was a student and dug into the Word
He went to John to be baptized for this is good.

He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove
Alighting Him, a voice then said, “This is my beloved Son”.

Then Jesus was led up to the wilderness by the Spirit of God
He fasted forty days and nights and was hungry for food.

The tempter came and tested Him knowing Jesus was the King
So then Jesus used the Word of God for fighting

From that time Jesus preached and showed us the way
He said, seek first the Kingdom of God each and every day.

Now Jesus asking His disciples, Who do men say that I am?
You are the Christ, the Son of God, this did not come by man.

My Father who is in heaven, has revealed this you,
On this rock I’ll build My church, for I am the Truth.

It was time for Jesus to ride in as prophecies told
The disciples brought him a donkey and a colt.

The multitudes began to cry, “Hosanna in the highest!”
The woman poured costly oil on the body of Jesus .

When the Passover feast had come, Jesus said to Judas,
“You’re going to betray Me. For you must do this.”

Jesus was put on trial because He called Himself the King,
This was unacceptable and now the crucifixion.

They divided Jesus’ clothes and casting lots they knew
It must be written on the cross “THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS!”

Jesus cried with a loud voice and said, “It is finished!”
The veil then tore, sin was gone and now we’re not separate.

The earth quaked, the rocks split and suddenly they knew,
Truly this was the Son of God and they laid Him in a tomb.

But that wasn’t it, the work just began and three days later,
An angel of the Lord descended from heaven and shared something greater.

“Do not be afraid for I know whom you seek, Jesus is not here,
For He is risen where He once lay and to you, He will appear!”.

Mary stood outside the tomb with fear and weeping.
Then suddenly Jesus appeared asking “Whom are you seeking?”

She thought it to be a gardener, then Jesus said, “Mary!”
He said, Go tell My brethren for I soon am ascending.

The eleven disciples shut the door for fear of the Jews,
Jesus stood in the midst of them and said, “Peace be with you.

As the Father has sent Me, so now I also send you.
Receive the Holy Spirit and forgive as I do.

Now go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
He who believes and is baptized will not be condemned.

And these signs will follow those who believe,
They’ll cast out demons and no harm will come to them if they drink anything deadly.

They’ll speak with new tongues and take up serpents.
Lay hands on the sick and they will recover.

Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed,
You have life in Jesus name for now you are saved.
