In the latest story from the Bible App for Kids, “A Roaring Rescue,” God shuts the mouths of lions to rescue Daniel! From Daniel 1:1–4 and Daniel chapter 6, when God’s people keep disobeying Him, their enemies carry them away to Babylon. But because Daniel continues trusting in God, he becomes a leader in their new country. Some of the other leaders are jealous of Daniel, so they pass a new law to try to get him in trouble with King Darius.
When Daniel says he will only worship the one true God, the bad leaders try to feed Daniel to lions. But because Daniel won’t bow, God won’t let him be lion chow. God sends an angel to close the lions’ mouths and keep Daniel safe. The next day, when King Darius sees how God protected Daniel, he punishes the bad leaders and orders all of his subjects to worship Daniel’s God: the one true God!

As that New Year’s excitement begins to fade, are you losing traction on some of the healthy habits you started this year? Thankfully Easter is on the way, bringing with it another chance for renewal. Christians all over the world observe the 40 days leading up to our remembrance of Jesus’ resurrection as a time to reflect, repent, and prepare our hearts to celebrate new life.
Seek God through His Word
Consider making the Bible an intentional part of your day, every day, between now and Easter Sunday. The most important things in our lives are best when we’re sharing them with others. Ask a family member or a friend — or several — to join you in a Bible Plan during Lent. Then each day, discuss what you’re discovering. Share your questions with each other, and encourage one another as you pursue greater devotion to Christ.
What are Bible Plans?
When you subscribe to a Bible Plan, the Bible App gives you a brief passage to read (or listen to) each day. Plans draw you into the Bible every day, helping you meditate on what God’s Word means in your life. Here are six Plans that can help you connect during Lent:
Lent for Everyone
N.T. Wright, 53 days
40 Days of Lent
Journey Church, 47 days
Devotions for Lent
Holy Bible: Mosaic, 46 days
ReThink, 40 days
40 Days of Revival
Hillsong, 40 days
The 40-Day New Testament Challenge
Margaret Feinberg, 40 days

In “Stones, Slings, and Giant Things,” the next story in the Bible App for Kids, David faces off against the giant Goliath! Based on 1 Samuel 16–17, kids will see God lead Samuel — the prophet from our story “A Voice in the Night” — to anoint the next king of Israel. God chooses the shepherd boy David, even though all of David’s brothers are bigger, stronger, and more qualified. That’s because most of us judge people based on what they look like — but God sees what’s inside a person’s heart.
Later, when David goes to visit his brothers at their battle against the Philistine army, it makes him angry to hear the rude things the Philistine champion Goliath is saying about God. Because David trusts in God, he goes to fight the giant Goliath with just five smooth stones and his trusty sling. With God’s help, David beats Goliath and becomes a hero to all of Israel!
