God is My Shepherd! Devotional
There’s a difference between simply knowing that God is a good shepherd and actually relating to Him in this way.
God desires that people, including children, experience His tender care during the ups and downs of life. He calls us to trust, rest, and rely on Him in very practical ways.
God is My Shepherd! helps children understand how they are like sheep, how God is their good shepherd, and how this impacts their daily life. This 4-week devotional includes daily activities to engage the child in the content and a final activity to help the child engage personally with God the Good Shepherd.
The Leader’s Guide prepares you for a 10-15-minute weekly conversation with the child. You are equipped to provide support and encouragement as the child pursues a personal relationship with God.

God longs to be in intimate relationship with people, including children. The relationship of a shepherd with his sheep is unique, personal and tender. This is how God desires to relate to us. He longs to show compassion, give what is best, guide, and protect.
Children naturally depend on others. Their hearts quickly respond with love and attachment towards those who care for them and love them well. What better time of life to help them establish this same love and affection for God, their good shepherd, than while they are still young?
The daily and weekly activities in this devotional are designed to help children interact personally with God and learn to follow their good shepherd.
God is My Shepherd! teaches children to follow their good shepherd as they:
- Are assured of God’s constant presence
- See God as their protector, provider, and guide
- Imagine God as their good shepherd

This 4-week devotional includes daily activities to engage the child in the content and a final activity to help the child engage personally with God.
