VIDEO Daily Faith, Daily Bread

Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

It is hard to imagine a shorter verse of Scripture that contains a larger history and summary of the dependence of God’s people upon Him: “Give us this day our daily bread.” Those are the words of instruction Jesus taught His disciples to pray in “The Lord’s Prayer.” The attentive disciple, upon hearing those words, would have immediately remembered the account of God’s provision in the wilderness for the redeemed Hebrew slaves.

For almost forty years, God provided manna for the Israelites to eat—a seed or grain-like substance on which they subsisted (Exodus 16). But that provision was a test of their faith in God’s promise to provide (verse 4). They were to gather daily what they needed for only that day. In the same way, Jesus taught His disciples not to worry about tomorrow, but to trust God every day for daily bread (Matthew 6:25-34). He reminded them that worrying brings nothing; faith in God brings provision.

If you have a need, don’t let anxiety replace your faith. Let your requests be made known to God with thanksgiving and receive His peace as you wait upon Him. He will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).

God’s purposes always have God’s provision. John Blanchard
