God has shown his power over animals in various ways in the past:

1. In the plagues of Egypt, God was in charge of large numbers of animals including frogs, gnats, flies, livestock, locusts and animals in general (boils).  So in six of the plagues on Egypt, God used animals to show his might.  (Exodus 5-11)

2. Balaam’s donkey talked because of God’s power.  (Numbers 22-24)

3. Ravens delivered food to Elijah because of God’s power.  (I Kings 17)

4. Heavenly horses of fire took Elijah to  heaven because of God’s power.  (2 Kings 2:1-18)

5. Daniel wasn’t attacked in the lions’ den since an angel of God closed their mouths.  (Daniel 6)  Picture Daniel getting thrown into a dark den with lions.  How many lions do you think were in the den?  Do you think Daniel got some sleep after the angel helped him?

6. God sent a big fish for Jonah and then later ordered it to give up Jonah on land.  (Jonah 1-2:10)

7. Jesus made it so a fish had tax money in it.  (Matthew 17:24-27)

8. Jesus rode on a colt that hadn’t been ridden.  (Mark 11:1-11)

9. Jesus made fish come into their net.  (John 21:1-14)

10. Paul had a viper’s fangs in him.  He shook it off and was fine because of God’s power.  (Acts 28:1-10)
