Matt. 6:11 Give us today our daily bread.

One simple sentence.  A few short words; but oh, how powerful this appeal.  Christ instructed us to appeal to the Lord God for what we need for this day.  Not for yesterday, which has passed, never to return.  Not for tomorrow, which is not guaranteed.  Our appeal is for this day.
Psa. 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day that is full of hope, full of promise.  It is full of unknowns; it is full of challenges.  We do not know what this day holds in store for us. We know only that by the grace of God, he has allowed us to experience the light of this day.  And just as God provided manna for the children of Israel for that day and that day alone, he will provide for his servants what they need for this day.  What do you need for this day?  What nourishment must you have for this day in order to accomplish God’s will?  Let us not be presumptuous, assuming what will happen tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year.  Let us not look back with either longing or regret at the days of old.  Let us focus on this day, and let us remember that our source of provision is not our job, it is not our bank account, but rather it is our confidence in the Provider who, just as he cared for the children of Israel while they were in the wilderness, will care for us this day as well.  “For I am the LORD; I change not.” (Mal. 3:6)  The LORD provides for all who obey him.
