Day 21 | Daily Dependence



Jesus didn’t teach us to pray, “Give us this day our weekly bread… or our monthly bread… or enough bread for a lifetime.” He taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread,” because God wants you to depend on him one day at a time. If God met all your needs all at once, you wouldn’t need to trust him anymore. In fact, you might never talk to him again. So Jesus told us to ask for what we need just for today, and not to worry about tomorrow.

Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
