Getting our students to connect with God personally is an area where a lot of youth ministries struggle. Knowing God doesn’t happen in a moment. It’s not like your student will wake up one morning and BAM! They know God, they have Him all figured out, no doubts or questions.
In fact, you can read every word in this book, fill in every blank, follow every suggestion, and still not understand everything there is to know about God.
We’ve created a tool to help students take one step forward in their journey to Know God. This devotional experience isn’t about answering all of their questions. It’s about taking one step, and starting on a journey to know God more. Not completely. Not fully. But more than you did yesterday or the day before. Because even though there’s no formula for knowing everything about God, there are a few things you can do every day that will help you know Him better.
Teach Students Four Skills to Grow Their Faith
This journal is about four things you can do today (and every day) that will help you know God.
We always say that we want every student, every day in their faith, to hear, pray, talk, and live.
What that simply means is they learn to be aware that there’s a God around them, even at a time that’s unpredictable. And they learn how to listen to God through scripture and listen to God’s spirit and listen to what God is saying through other people – that they learn how to talk. It’s more important than ever that kids have conversations about God and their faith so they can express. There is something in expressing to other people how they see God that helps shape their faith.
What The Devotional Is Not
This devotional isn’t about knowing everything there is to know about God. Students can read every word in this book, fill in every blank, follow every suggestion, and still not understand ALL there is to know about God.
WHAT THIS DEVOTIONAL IS
It is about students starting a journey to help them know God more and discover Him on their own. Because, even though there’s no checklist for knowing everything about God, there are a few things they can do every day that will help them know Him better. The Know God devotional can help your students learn how to have daily devotions while developing spiritual disciplines.
