MATTHEW 6:11_our daily bread.
Not only does Jesus teach you to pray Give us this day, but He adds, “our daily bread.” This prayer gives strong emphasis that God is present with you daily, and cares about your needs daily.
The need Jesus concentrates on is food. Jesus knows you need food. He has no problem with you asking for it in prayer. Jesus created food. After that, He created animals and man with the daily need for food. If God had created the other way around, Adam would have been one hungry fellow!
Creation is an example of God’s thought pattern, and organizational skills. He created the supply before the demand. More intelligent design.
In John chapter 6 (KJV), Jesus adds another twist to our need for bread. “33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”
Have you ever thought of adding to your prayers to be filled with Jesus each day? Start doing that – to be so full of Jesus you don’t hunger for the temporary things of the world.
Bread of Heaven, This day meet all my needs by filling me full of Jesus! In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ is the Bread of Life—I want to be filled with Him!
