Nothing Surprises God

It might seem like everything is out of control right now, but God has a plan for all of this. It’s really easy for us to feel scared or overwhelmed when we’re surprised. But God knows everything. He knows everything that’s ever happened and everything that ever will happen. Nothing surprises God! He’s never surprised, He has a plan for everything, and nothing can stop His plan. God’s Got everything under control.

Kids Corner: The Helmet of Salvation

The Armor of God isn’t physical armor, it’s spiritual. And the most important part of the Armor of God is the Helmet of Salvation. You need to be saved from your sins more than you need anything else in the whole world. You can put on the Helmet of Salvation by believing in Jesus Christ as your Savior.

Breastplate of Righteousness

Put on the Breastplate of Righteousness by doing what is right. Doing what God tells you to do is like wearing body armor in the spiritual battle that we’re all in. Your righteousness cannot save you from the eternal consequences of your sin (only Jesus can do that for you) but it CAN help protect you from the earthly consequences of sin.
