Obstacles


Materials
Variety of obstacles

Activity
1. Set up chairs and tables and other things as obstacles for when youth / children enter the room. You can also design an obstacle course for them.
2. Ask two volunteers to go through the course blindfolded.
3. While they are outside the room being blindfolded, remove all of the obstacles. Choose a guide for each blindfolded volunteer to carefully guided through the non-existent obstacles. Make sure to include instructions about avoiding the obstacles, even though they have been removed.
4. Surprise the youth / Children when you remove the blindfolds.

Application
Sometimes God gives us the strength and a guide such as he did Elisha, but at other times God removes the obstacles as when he parted the Jordan River for Elisha and Elijah.

Scripture
