Memory Verse

“And we know in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”

Audio Icon   Romans 8:28



In this episode, Spike comforts someone who is afraid. In 1 Kings 19:1-8, the prophet Elijah was being chased by an evil queen who was trying to kill him. He was so tired and frightened that he was ready to give up! God needed to encourage Elijah and remind him that God would always be with him. God sent an angel to bring Elijah food and water, not just once, but twice! The angel didn’t come with a lot of words, he just came to show Elijah that God understood Elijah’s pain, and that he would provide what was needed. Knowing that God would take care of him, Elijah was able to continue to carry out God’s plans.

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” ~Fred Rogers
