When the disciples had asked Jesus how to pray, one of the things He included was asking the Father for our daily bread. This bread is not bread alone but our daily needs. Food, clothing, shelter, etc… Unfortunately in this world there are many who go hungry, who have no place to call home, and lack so many needs. Then there are those who have everything in this world that they need but are starving spiritually and do not even know this.

Jesus said when tempted after fasting for forty days, that man does not live on bread alone but by every Word of God. Jesus is also known as the Bread of Life, and the Word of God.

Our Heavenly Father, cares and provides for both our physical and spiritual needs. I thank God for all of His provisions. He is my shelter, my shield and strong tower. He is more than God to me, but my Abba Father, my Daddy. He never leaves me or turns me away. He is patient with me and is patient when I am frustrated and impatient. His love is the love that I need, and He loves me without limits. I thank Him for this love. A love that I do not deserve but receive with a grateful heart. I thank Him For Jesus, the Bread of Life.

Matthew 6:9-13 Pray then like this: “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 also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”

  1. Your post reflects more insight into my post today, “Who Is This Man? Part 2”. I am going to try to update it with a mention of your site. I’m not too good at doing this but will give it a try.
