Give us day by day our daily bread.
Recommended Reading: 1 Kings 17:1-6
When the Sydney Missionary and Bible College in Australia was preparing for its centennial anniversary, the staff researched the beginnings of the school. In 1916, a missionary named Benson Barnett returned from his ministry with China Inland Mission, longing to train Australian young people for missionary service. He started the school in a large house in Croydon, but the students had little to eat, which was a matter of great prayer. One day as Barnett stood at the train station, a man came up to him and asked if he wanted a cow. Barnett accepted, and from that point on the students had milk, butter, and cheese.
The Lord may not send you a cow, but He knows how to provide your daily bread. When we trust God for daily provisions, it teaches us to depend on Him and His faithfulness to us. He knows how to give us daily bread, daily strength, daily encouragement, daily opportunities, and daily fellowship with Himself and others.
Trust His provision and be sure to thank Him for the milk of His kindness.
All of us are grateful for the blessings of God, but expressing them verbally, not only blesses the great heart of God, but blesses our hearts, too.
John R. Bisagno.
