Read: MATTHEW 6:9–13
“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11).
In the wake of each day, God dispenses bread as He pleases. Daily bread can be in the form of a good break, promotion at work, a business deal, healing, or salvation for a loved one. Psalm 145:15 says the eyes of all creatures look expectantly to God and He gives them their food in due season. He opens His hands and satisfies the desire of every living thing.
In teaching His disciples to pray, Jesus taught them to ask for their daily bread. God is a gracious father who delights in blessing His children. Jesus said, “if you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him” (Matthew 7:11). Have you asked God for your daily bread today? James 4:2 says you do not have because you do not ask.
Before you step out this day, why not pray in the manner Jesus taught His disciples:
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
When you expect nothing, you will get nothing. It is as simple as that.
