Kids Bible Lesson 15 - The Sun Stands Still

The Sun Stands Still

Welcome to week 15!

This week the children learn about the day the sun and moon stood still. Joshua needed daylight for a little longer to defeat his enemies during battle, so he prayed and asked God to make the sun stand still. Miraculously, God did this for him. This Bible story shows that nothing is too hard for God to do, and we should not be scared to ask God to do something big. When God is on our side, we can be sure we will win no matter how difficult it may seem.

Enjoy this story of God’s miraculous power!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.
