Luke 11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
The Lord Jesus taught His disciples to pray and ask for the bread of each day. That is such a great picture of how we are to live. He wants us to ask for enough for today. In Matthew 6:34 He stated that we were only to face the problems of one day at a time. We are given our bread one day at a time.
The reason people get so stressed is that they are trying to face a week’s problems or even more. We are to live today, just today. We can’t live our yesterdays. We can’t live our tomorrows. The world we live in causes us to fear tomorrow. Jesus would tell us to just take care of today.
I can only live one day at a time. If I learn how to live today, then I will be ready for tomorrow. If I can learn to focus on today and my serving Jesus, then the problems of tomorrow will take care of themselves when the time comes.
Help me learn to live one day at a time. Help me learn to trust you for tomorrow’s problems and obey you as I live each day with its unique issues.
