After this manner therefore pray ye:Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:9-11.
Bread is one of the discussions that evoke interest especially when it’s in short supply. The idea that bread can be abundantly supplied is always a welcomed discourse.
It’s interesting to know that God is concerned about bread and its sufficiency. This may come as a surprise to some people, others care less. Your source determines your supplies, the quality and quantity. Give us this day our daily bread is not just about food to eat, it’s about everything you need. If its all about food, then it’s not worthwhile; bread is commonly available. If bread for food is all you need, your needs are small. Bread in the verses above is everything needed for life; health, wisdom, power, strength, career, business, family and riches.
God is simply saying that as your source of supply, you have nothing short of abundance in every good thing.
“Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord:yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters ‘table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith:be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”Matthew 15:25-28.
The needs of man are as diverse as the faces we see. These needs maybe dynamic as the day changes and as one need is resolved. God is interested in your well being and wholeness, not just food for the belly. Jesus called healing “the children’s bread” in the verses above. Every need is rated as bread, and its abundantly supplied daily by the father. The source is not for crumbs but for complete packages, every help needed. While the children eat on the table, the crumbs are for the dogs. For every area of need, there is a package of “bread”for your satisfaction.
Every good and perfect gift from God is called bread from above. There is nothing needed by man that cannot be abundantly supplied by God. God is the source of bread that satisfies every need of man, Jesus is the bread of life. For everyone that is in need of daily bread, you will never lack it in abundance. It’s simply saying, I need Jesus every day!
“I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven:if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever:and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”John 6:48-51.
Prayer: Father thank you for the bread of life that meets every need of man. An end has come to lack and want and the help we need is available daily. Thank you lord Jesus for being our daily bread. We shall never lack any good thing abundantly in Jesus name.
