So Your Teen Doesn't Think There's a Power Greater than Themselves?
Bible Verses about God's Plan Which Inspires SurrenderOur teens need to know that God is on their side. Addiction can leave our teens feeling vulnerable, lost, forgotten, and forsaken. Of course, that isn't true. Every child is loved and adored, fearfully and wonderfully made with distinct purpose and pleasure by God. Jeremiah 29:11 most famously describes the words of God who says For I know the plans I have for you...to give you a future and a hope. In Proverbs 3 we are reminded about trusting in God's plan, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Activity: Try to Stop NatureThere are forces greater than ourselves operating around us always. Clouds are moving, wind is blowing, gravity is creating waves in the ocean, and the earth is spinning on its axis. Ask your teen to stop the clouds in the sky and consider the consequences of preventing the earth from continuing to spin. Some things in life are precisely where they are supposed to be, for very good reasons which are sometimes beyond our knowledge. God has a plan and we have faith that His plans are for good. Romans 8:28 reminds us And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
