Week 38

Week 38 The Lord’s Prayer         Verse 11 Give us today our daily bread.

Here is what Jesus says about food and bread:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink… Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

I am the bread of life. 

I have food to eat that you know nothing about… My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.  

It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ”

(Matthew 6:25-26, John 6:32-33, John 6:48, John 4:32-34, Matthew 4:4)

I don’t think asking for fresh bread is meant to be about my daily provision, but more about a daily connection with Jesus and His fresh Words spoken to me. After all God already knows I need the basics to sustain me. But it is up to me to ask for more of Him. As a gentleman He can only respond to a seeking-first heart. And, like manna, I can’t eat yesterday’s stale bread.

When I seek Him daily, I don’t need to ask for basic provisions, they will be taken care of by my Father.
