Organizing the Inside – Day 105 Never Be Hungry Again

9“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give us today our daily bread…

Yesterday’s food was meant for yesterday.
Devotional time with God must be something that you commit to doing daily.  The strength and insight that you gain from your quiet time in His presence today is not meant to sustain you beyond the day.  Jesus prayed, “Give us this day our daily bread…” which suggests that the Word of God is meant for us to partake of each day. Find appropriate scripture to strengthen your resolve and meditate on it day and night.

It is of course the accumulative effect of your daily fellowship
with God that enables you to live a simplified and empowered life.  Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches apart from me, you can do nothing.” As long as we remain attached to the vine we are able to live prosperous and productive lives. It’s important however, to remember that even as the children of Israel were dependent upon God for food from heaven, they were not allowed to store up food for the next day. They were to rely upon God each morning to meet their needs for that day. Likewise, we should not try to live out today’s circumstances on yesterday’s nourishment.

Jesus is the bread of life.
We must spend regular time with God and honor Him with the first fruits of our day. Plan ahead and God will give you the power to add a commitment to your decision. Seek Him every day for the strength, food and nourishment you need to live.

Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34“Sir,” they said, “from now on give us this bread.” 35Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
John 6:32-35

Thank you for this reminder, Liz. I have not been doing this at a time in my life when I absolutely should be giving the Lord the first fruits of my day. Thank you for the reminder.
