This illustrated family devotional was adapted for elementary students (but applicable for all ages) from our Sunday School curriculum My Purpose Will Stand and provides a way for the entire family to learn about God's sovereignty over all things. Teachers can supplement their lessons and parents can enrich their family devotions with the activities and personal applications from God's Providence.

God is present and active in the world, orchestrating all things to serve His eternal purposes. All His purposes are good and right, and are accomplished with perfection. As the Sovereign Creator of the world (and everything in it!) God has the right, power, wisdom, and righteousness to rule the universe.
The goal of My Purpose Will Stand is to so reveal God and His glorious work of providence that through the Holy Spirit’s work in the teaching of His Word, students would respond to God in faith as they look for God’s providence in all things—meditating on His works, seeing the big picture of God’s work in the world, and seeing the hand and heart of Jesus in all circumstances of their lives.
Electronic curriculum is a great option for many teachers. Learn about how to use our electronic resources and our policies regarding electronic licenses.
