Great is our Lord, and mighty in power

(Psalm 147:5a)

Lesson 4

God is All-powerful (Omnipotent)


Verse: “It is He who made the earth by His power” (Jeremiah 51:15a).

Focus: God is so powerful that He created the universe.

Practical Application: Talk to the children about how a plant sprouts. For us it takes a lot of work to help fruits and vegetables to grow. But God only had to say a word (Genesis 1:11). Bring pictures (waves, waterfall, wind, etc.) of things in God’s creation that show God’s power.


Verse: “And the sun was still, And the moon stayed, Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies” (Joshua 10:13a). OR “Great is our Lord, and mighty in power” (Psalm 147:5a).

Focus: God is so powerful that He can make the sun stand still and heal people with a word.

Practical Application: Give examples of how God is all-powerful. Ask them, “Can you stop time?” God can and He did (Joshua 10). “Can you heal people just by a touch or by a word?” Jesus did (Matthew 8).



Verse: “And looking upon them, Jesus said to them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

Focus: We are limited and unable to do so many things, but God is able.

Practical Application: Consider asking the children if they can stop lying or coveting what others have. Can they stop from sinning or making mistakes? Are they always right? Can they love everyone? With us so many things are impossible but with God, they all are possible. Tell the story of the rich man in Matthew 19:16-26.
