“Give us today our daily bread.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Lord, give me what I need for today.

Not what I needed yesterday.

Not what I will need for tomorrow.

What I need today.

Today’s strength.

Today’s sustenance.

Today’s vision.

Today’s peace that passes understanding.

It might look different than I expect it to but it will do the job nonetheless.

You are amazing like that.

Thank you, Lord, for today’s provision, for today’s daily bread.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Daily bread.

Daily strength.

Daily sustenance. 

Lord, give me what I need for today. 

Not what I needed yesterday. 

Not what I will need for tomorrow.

What I need today.

It will probably look different than I expect it to but it will do the job nonetheless. 

You are good like that. 

Thank you, Lord, for daily bread. 

Enough

“Two things I ask of you, Lord; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭30‬:‭7-8‬ NIV)

Life is a journey to eternity, one day at a time.

It takes vision to see that if you focus on what is true, if your think what is true,
if you speak what is true, that it will radically impact the course of your life.

How much of our lives are spent wrestling with lies told to us and paying for the lies we tell others?

How much of our relationships are bogged down in the mire of trying to figure out what is true and what is false?

It takes wisdom to know that
you don’t learn this in a day,
but you learn it one day at a time.

Give me only my daily bread.

Give me what I need today.

Give me
just enough food,
just enough money,
just enough strength,
just enough grace,
just enough love,
just enough perseverance for today.

Give me just enough for today.

Let me eat until I’m satisfied,
pay the bills due today,
use all the strength, grace, love and perseverance that you have given me to get through today and have none left over.

When you know that enough will be provided for tomorrow, you can rest in the enough you have today.

Two things I am asking God to give you today: the ability to focus, think and speak the (His) truth in your life,

And

The ability to trust, rest in and enjoy your enough for today.
