15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, 

and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, 

Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: 

and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

-- Genesis 17:15 - 17:19 KJV

 The Ten: Incredible children in the Bible 

"As Recorded in the King James Version"


January 26, 2024


Reverend Danny Rhoades

Good day Brothers and Sisters. Today in my Daily Devotional, we are going to be exploring the Incredible Children in the Bible.

Children hold a special place in biblical narratives, often emerging as central figures in remarkable stories of faith, courage, and divine intervention. From the miraculous birth of Isaac to the wisdom of Daniel, these young individuals have left an indelible mark on history, inspiring generations with their remarkable journeys. In this devotional, we will delve into the lives of ten incredible children in the Bible, as recorded in the King James Version. Through their stories, we will witness the fulfillment of divine promises, the rise of prophets and kings, and the embodiment of unwavering faith. Join us on this captivating exploration of the remarkable children who played extraordinary roles in the biblical narrative.


When we think of the Bible, we often picture wise old prophets and kings, but let's not forget about the incredible children who played a vital role in shaping biblical history. From miraculous births to humble beginnings, these young individuals left an indelible mark on the ancient world. In this devotional, we will delve into the stories of ten remarkable children in the Bible and explore the significance of their contributions.

First on our list is Isaac, the child whose birth was nothing short of a divine miracle. Born to the elderly couple, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac's arrival brought joy and fulfillment to his parents. Imagine being in your nineties and suddenly finding out you're going to be parents - talk about a late-life surprise! But more than just a miraculous birth, Isaac represented the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham and Sarah. He was the embodiment of hope and a reminder that God's plans can surpass human limitations.

Moses, a true biblical superhero, didn't have the most conventional start in life. Placed in a basket and set adrift on the Nile River as an infant, he was discovered by Pharaoh's daughter and raised as a prince in Egypt. But Moses' story didn't end there. In a remarkable encounter with God in a burning bush, he was chosen to lead the Israelites out of slavery and into the promised land. From his humble beginnings to his role as a prophet and deliverer, Moses demonstrated that great things could come from the unlikeliest of circumstances.

Samuel, a child dedicated to God from birth, exemplified the qualities of a faithful servant. His story began when his mother, Hannah, fervently prayed for a child and vowed to dedicate him to God's service. Samuel's upbringing in the temple shaped his character and prepared him for a significant role as a prophet. Even as a young boy, he had a remarkable ability to hear God's voice and faithfully relay His messages. Samuel's crowning achievement came when he anointed Saul as the first king of Israel, marking a pivotal moment in the nation's history.

These incredible children in the Bible remind us that age is not a barrier to making a difference. Whether through miraculous births, humble beginnings, or steadfast faith, they played crucial roles in shaping the narrative of faith and redemption. So let's take a closer look at their stories and draw inspiration from their remarkable journeys.

Imagine being just a young shepherd boy, tending to your flock, when a prophet comes along and anoints you as the future King of Israel. That's exactly what happened to David. Despite his humble beginnings, David was chosen by God to lead His people.

One of the most famous stories in the Bible is David's epic battle against the giant Goliath. Armed with only a sling and a stone, David defeated the mighty warrior, showing that with faith and courage, even the impossible can be overcome.

After his victory over Goliath, David's fame spread throughout the land. He served as a loyal warrior to King Saul and eventually ascended to the throne himself. David's reign was marked by both triumphs and challenges, but he always relied on God's strength and guidance.

Josiah became king at the young age of eight, facing the daunting task of leading a nation. Despite his youth, Josiah was determined to seek God and do what was right in His eyes.

Josiah embarked on a mission to reform the nation, tearing down idols and purging the land of false worship. He sought God's guidance through the prophetess Huldah and remained committed to following His laws.

During Josiah's reign, the high priest discovered the Book of the Law in the temple. This discovery led to a national revival as Josiah implemented the teachings and commanded the people to obey God's commandments. Josiah's dedication to God's word earned him a place among the remarkable children in the Bible.

Daniel's wisdom and faith were evident when he interpreted dreams for the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar. Through God's guidance, Daniel revealed the meanings of these dreams, gaining favor and respect in the king's court.

Daniel's unwavering devotion to God led him to be thrown into a den of lions. Miraculously, God protected him, and he emerged unharmed. This incredible story showcases Daniel's courage and God's faithfulness.

Even as a child, Jesus displayed wisdom and understanding beyond His years. At the age of twelve, He amazed the teachers in the temple with His knowledge and understanding of God's word.

Jesus' ministry on earth was marked by incredible miracles, teachings of love and compassion, and a radical message of redemption. His ultimate sacrifice on the cross paved the way for our salvation, making Jesus the ultimate incredible child in the Bible. 

In conclusion, the incredible children in the Bible, as described in the King James Version, serve as a reminder of the power of faith, resilience, and divine intervention. From Isaac to Jesus, their stories captivate our hearts and minds, teaching us valuable lessons about trust, obedience, and the extraordinary ways in which God works through the lives of children. As we reflect on their journeys, may we find inspiration and encouragement to embrace our own unique roles in God's plan, knowing that regardless of our age, we too can make an incredible impact in the world around us.
