Guiding Question: Why does God perform miracles?

Materials: Use the materials from the link in the Procedure section

Procedure: Review the story of Joshua and the day the sun stood still with students. Talk about the miracle involved. Explain that God uses miracles to remind people He is God and can control anything – including the sun. Remind students to trust that God can perform miracles in any situation that seems impossible if it is in His will.
