Throughout the Bible, God provides for His people in various ways. Having Sunday School activities on how God provides will instil in the students an understanding of His provision. God has provided manna from heaven, food for Elijah and the widow, safety during the plagues of Egypt and survival for Noah and his family on the Ark. Each of these Bible stories exemplifies how God provides.

Manna From Heaven
God will provide when there seems to be no way. He exemplifies this through His provision to the children of Israel with manna that fell from Heaven. As a Sunday school activity, have the class make a list of the different ways that God has provided for them or tell stories that they have heard from others of God's provision in their lives. Ask the class if anyone has experienced a time when God provided food for their family.
Elijah and the Widow
In this story, God sent Elijah to a widow for food. She told the prophet that she was planning to cook what little she had for herself and her son, then they would die. Instead, the widow cooked for Elijah, and God provided so that the widow never ran out of food. As an activity, have the students memorise Psalm 77:14, which says, "Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people." This will remind them of God's miracle working power.
Escape from Egypt
The Israelites were held in bondage in Egypt for many years. God sent plagues to Egypt to convince the Pharaoh to allow them to go free. After studying this subject, have the student decorate a box. Then place different items in the box to represent the seven plagues of Egypt. Those plagues are blood, frogs, gnats, flies, killing of livestock, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and death of the firstborn son.
Noah and the Ark
God pronounced that a flood would destroy the entire earth. After God looked across the world, he saw Noah. Because of Noah's righteousness, God decided to save Noah from the impending doom of the world. After the flood, God placed a rainbow in the sky as a promise to Noah. As an activity, have the children colour in a rainbow. Then, have them find different verses in the Bible that relate God's provision. Place each scripture reference within a colour of the rainbow.
