Daily Bread—His Manna
“They asked, and he ... satisfied them with the bread of heaven” - (Psalm 105:40).
Thoughts for Today
There are people living in some of the most influential countries in the world who do not have enough to eat. They don’t know where they will get enough money to buy their next meals. Maybe they have been laid off from their jobs, or due to some serious illness, they cannot work.
Perhaps you know the sinking feeling that comes from hearing the news that you will no longer be employed. When setbacks occur, we must immediately turn to God to renew our hearts with His hope and encouragement. Never be ashamed of crying out to God through prayer. He knows what you are facing even before you drop to your knees to pray.
Being laid-off from our jobs does not mean we are without hope. God provides for us each day. We may not know how His provision will come, but if our lives are submitted to Him, then we can be sure we will receive His blessings.
In Luke 11, Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread”- (Luke 11:2-3). During the Exodus, God did just that. Daily He provided a fresh stock of manna, a grain-like substance that also was called the bread or “grain of heaven” (Psalm 78:24).
Through Jesus Christ, God has provided all that we need for this life. We do, however, have a responsibility to fulfill. We must sincerely seek Him each day and be willing to let go of past hurts.
Let go; trust God to provide daily bread—His manna—for you. When you do, you will see Him at work on your behalf.
Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father,
I pray for my daily bread today—physically and spiritually. As I wait, may I abide in You. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray,
Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
