GOD’S BIG PLAN - LESSON 14/Page 1
Let’s review what we have learned so far about God’s Big Plan. (Review the previous sto-
ries, encouraging more and more students to share.
Years ago, when God promised Abraham a new people and a new place, He also promised Abraham
something else; something that would happen to those new people. God told Abraham that He would judge
the nation that made slaves of His people. How long did God tell Abraham that his descendants would be in

Then, as God told him, Moses continued to ask the king to let the sons of Israel go. The king refused
every time and God did some amazing things before Pharaoh and throughout all of Egypt. God turned all of
their water into blood. He sent frogs to cover the land and swarm all through their houses. God turned the

Egyptians’ animals became sick and died and then the people were covered with sores. God even sent very
heavy hail with thunder and fire. Plants were flattened and trees were crushed. Then God sent the locusts.
They covered the ground like a carpet and what hadn’t been destroyed by the hail, the locusts
