“The LORD is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.”—NAHUM 1:7
Activity from the Hands-On Bible
You know how when you play Hide and Seek, there’s one place where you’re safe? Home base is your safe place, your refuge. (See? You learned a new word—a refuge is a safe place!)
A refuge can be wherever you feel safe, kind of like a home base. And the safest “place” of all is with God! Read NAHUM 1:7 out loud so you remember where your home base should be.
GOD WANTS TO BE OUR HOME BASE!
- Write, “God Is My Home Base” in the center of a sheet of poster board.
- Draw a square around the words. (Now it looks like a home base.)
- Around the poster,write or draw things that trouble you.
See how all those troubling things are outside the home base?
Hang your poster in your room to remind you that God will be your refuge in times of trouble!
