Good morning, Family:
This morning is day four of our seven day journey into the Lord’s Prayer. We will take our time to break down all seven sentences of the New King James Version of Matthew 6:9-13.
Today, we focus on verse 11, “11 Give us this day our daily bread.”
In this verse of The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus is speaking and teaching about God in the character of a Provider, where we get Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Our Provider).
On the deeper level, Jesus understands that God, the Father, will provide us with more than just “bread.” God is the provider and supplier of everything that we need. So, not only will God provide our daily bread, but He will also provide our daily peace, daily joy, daily healing, daily hope and so much more.
Jesus is just telling us not to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, but instead to be present TODAY. God, The All Sufficient One, has everything handled. All we have to do is show up at The Table.
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
