Matthew 6 gives us the Lords prayer and in the prayer it asks for God to give us our daily bread. I wonder how much of this wonderful prayer do we really believe or even take for granted. God in his wisdom knows what we need and when. One thing I have learned from this time of testing is the providence of God is so awesome.
On several occasions I have been in a situation just this year were I knew that only God could provide for me. Before in my own strength and finances I took that for granted. Yes I was thankful that God gave me the strength to work and earn a salary but I relied on that and not him. Now things are a bit different just as that old song says "What a difference a day makes". LOL
For me my daily bread comes from the Father and not only do I receive it everyday; I am receiving it in the overflow, press down, shaken together, running over kind of blessing. This time I am not taking the provisions lightly that I receive. I am careful to give thanks, yet being thankful and not wasteful. I am also finding the time to share with others and give as it as been given to me.
Perhaps you have found something beautiful in your life that centers around Matthew 6. Why not share it with others as I have. Let me know what's happening with you? See the prayer board for this prayer (Matthew 6:9-15) NRSV. Not only will God give you "Daily Bread" He will also give you Living Water! What more could we ask for.
I send to you today my Love for you in Jesus' name
