Our Daily Bread
(Kathy Gabler) — “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt.6:11). . . This declaration is not a frugal request for bread crumbs to fight off hunger and poverty; rather it is an agreement with unlimited means for whatever is needed to walk out our purpose and bring glory to our Father. He knows not only what we are to accomplish and steward in our day, but also in our lifetime, and He also knows the provision and timing of portions necessary to do so. “Give us this day our daily bread” is deliberate agreement with our Father’s apportioning for life and purpose on a daily basis. As sons we steward relationships, money, circumstances, business and mandates. If we trust Father to apportion our daily provision, that provision will be neither limited nor wasteful, but I believe understanding this as a declaration of agreement will definitely blow our doors with the changes it brings to our lives. That prayer is agreement with (1) Father’s economy, (2) Father’s accounting and (3) Father’s agenda.
