Years ago, my sister and I made gold sparkly promise boxes. When we did our devotions and found a promise of God in scripture, we'd take an index card write down the verse and put it in our promise box. When I went through a hard time and needed some encouragement I'd pull out the gold sparkly promise box to remind me of the precious promises of God. Even to this day, those promises of God have stuck in my head. When I pray, I pray those promises of God and watch Him faithfully answer them. Making a promise box provides a fun way to collect and memorize the promises of God while instilling in our heart and minds the truth and power of God's promised Words.
- For family devotions let everyone make their own promise box and then continue to share the promises of God that are added to them. Encourage every family member to pray the promises of God.
- For a VBS craft consider making the project a promise box. Let each child design their own with stickers, crayons, and markers. Let the children know how much God loves them and how much we can rely on the promises of God even when everyone around us may let us down at one time or another.
- For a Sunday School project. Have a lesson on the promises of God. Perhaps, Noah would be a great lesson to do this with. Talk about the promises of God and share with them that God will faithfully keep His promises.
