Spiritual Fitness Challenge DAY SEVENTEEN

Day Seventeen - November 19th


Let's move on to verse 11 of the Lord's prayer:

11Give us today our daily bread.

Two points on this to direct your prayers. In James 4:2,3 James says,

"You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."

Yesterday you prayed into God's will be done. Keep praying that God would reveal to you His will. Ask God for what you need according to His will. God created you with needs, so bring them to Him.

It is also worth to note that God too IS our daily bread. Praying for your daily bread demonstrates faith, you are not praying for God's provision for years in advance, but each day. In Exodus 16 God provides daily manna. When they stored more than they could eat in one day, the next day they woke to find it rotten. trust God that he provides for you each day.

  1. Jesus tells us that he is the real bread sent from heaven. Your soul also needs feeding and we feed it by what goes in through our eyes, therefor if we feed our souls with the real bread, as Jesus tells us to do, then we are feeding it with the truth of the risen Messiah. For the kingdom is not meat and drink but the knowledge of GOD. I like your blog, keep it up.
