We are instructed to ask for our daily bread. Like manna, it’s a daily request. Are your hours being cut back at work? Is there a layoff on the horizon? Do the kids need shoes? Your daily bread is everything that you need to live — your income, your home, your car, etc.
Trust God to take care of it. If the layoff comes, relax. That’s what faith is all about. If you knew what God knows, you wouldn’t need to have faith. But God doesn’t operate like that. He wants our dependence to be on Him all the time. God promised to take care of you if you trust Him.
That trust is wrapped up in the command to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then everything you need will come to you. That means that you have to ask for all things of God in your life — forgiveness, grace, peace, love. Those things must be more important to you than where the money comes from.
Trust God and relax. He’s got you covered, but that covering only works if you look to Him first. Asking God for help and then stressing about it is not faith. Just believe. It’s going to be ok.
