SHINE YOUR LIGHT
Using the Kingdom Character Flash Cards, and a “Spotlight” on a “Stage” such as a flashlight (or several for some of the other kids to hold) and a special area of the room like a special mat or step to stand on top of, have each of the kids take turns being “on stage.” (You can even use different colored flashlights if you have them.)
When you invite them one at a time to come “on stage,” shine the flashlight(s) on them and explain to them that when we let Father God’s light shine on, in, and through us, we get to discover or see who we truly are! Not only this, but the world gets to see this, too, and it glorifies our God! See Supporting Scripture: 2 Corinthians 3:18: “…We all show the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed to be like him. This change in us brings more and more glory. And it comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (ICB).
You can then choose one of the Kingdom Character Flash Cards to read over them, while the light is shining on them. Explain to them that this is who they are and it will be seen when they allow God to shine His light in, on, and through them. Then have all the class cheer for them, and call them by their Kingdom Character Flash Card name, i.e. “Warrior Kyle.” Explain to the class that God has made us all to have and be that Kingdom Character, too. Then ask the class, “Who else would like to see who they are?” Continue until all the children have had an opportunity.
Through this exercise the children will learn the character and identity that God has knitted inside each of them—who they truly are—just waiting to be illuminated by His Spirit through them as they trust and believe in Him.
You are courageous! You are full of God’s love! The set of 10 Kingdom Character Flash Cards speaks directly to a child’s character in Jesus as responsible, honorable, loyal, serving, and more. Verbal children can repeat statements aloud while parents and caregivers can minister these truths to younger ones. We can speak Kingdom principles directly into a child’s destiny that are sowing seeds of truth into their very core. Cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on a digital device.

Just about every morning after my oldest wakes up, we say our good mornings and give hugs and kisses and he will ask, “Where’s Daddy?” And every morning I respond that Daddy is at work. Over the last week, each morning as we have gone through this repetitive dialogue, I felt the nudging of the Holy Spirit each time he would ask where his father was. I asked God what it was that He was wanting me to see in this. I felt like God was saying that in parenting, we face so many challenges, tests, and trials that leave us saying, “God, where are you??? Where’s Daddy?” We spend so much time praying for our children and ourselves as parents and doing our very best to instruct them in the ways of the Lord…
Throughout over 30 years of ministering identity and destiny to children, we have put together many prayers, identity statements, and tools to empower and speak truth into precious young lives. Here we have the privilege of being able to offer some of these resources just for YOU to minister life in your very own home.
Through this simple, but powerful lesson plan, teach your children the authority that they have over the enemy and how they have the power to choose what they will allow to affect their heart and soul.
