Have you ever wondered why our daily bread, and not our weekly bread?
Or our monthly bread?
Being creatures of habit, desiring independence rather than dependency on God, we tend to forget to connect every day when the pressure is off.
But if we have enough for that day, as the Israelites experienced in the wilderness with the manna, we need to come back to God, in faith, the next day to receive what He promises and provides (see Exodus chapter 16).
Notice the understood subject of this verse–God!
God is the one providing the daily bread–not us.
So we go to Him daily to receive His provision by faith, understanding that He is the great Jehovah Jireh. And He is faithful to His word…indeed, He watches over His word to perform it.
We may not see it in the way we would expect..we may not have the physical evidence manifested, but He will always give us our daily bread.
Bread can be any number of things you may be needing, including physical food, money to pay bills and buy necessities, mental and emotional as well as physical healing (healing is the children’s bread), relational blessings to name a few.
With God, there are no limits or restrictions.
He does not play favorites if you are a child of God.
Jabez asked that he might be blessed indeed, and according to scripture, God answered in the affirmative, and increased his influence and delivered him from evil!
And he was an old covenant believer…we have a better, more sure covenant, built on better promises.
Our job, through faith and patience, is to inherit the promises, by which our advocate, Jesus Christ the righteous, says yes and amen.
So don’t hesitate, come boldly to the throne of grace and claim that daily bread that belongs to you.
