Our Daily Bread...

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

So today I was driving to school and someone mentioned on the radio that God always gives us our daily bread. We ask him for it our model prayer, “The Lord’s prayer”,  and I needed that small gentle reminder--God always takes care of us. Jesus teaches us not to say “give me all the money in the world, so I know that I am financially taken care”, he teaches us to ask God for what we need for the day. Our DAILY bread, our daily ration of whatever we need.
My God always takes care of me and my family. It may not be the way I intend it, but when I worry how our needs will be met, he somehow meets it. Sometimes it’s even when I’m down to my last dollar and spent it, but he always makes sure that next dollar comes when we need it. How good is our God to give us everything that we need, exactly when we need it.  It creates a life utterly dependent on God, and I think that's exactly the way it's suppose to be.
I like how The Message writes Philippians 4:6-7, “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”
God knows what your concerns are and he will meet those needs, but the key word is “daily”. He will make sure that you have enough each day to do his will and fulfill his purpose with your life. When you trust in him, giving it to him in prayer he will take care of your needs. You will have a peace knowing that God will take care of you.
