Bread – probably the most basic food of the world. Taken for granted until I can’t find even one variety stocked in any store I glean through in a small town. In that fleeting, momentary panic I would have given all my gold for one loaf of any kind. Little things? How shall we measure them?
Back of the bread is the snowy flour,
And back of the flour, the mill,
And back of the mill is the field of wheat,
The rain, and the Father’s will,
As the eater finds ’tis sweeter to devour.
Our Father Who is in Heaven
Hallowed be Your name
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Father, thank You for this new day you have given.
Please give us this day
Our daily bread…
In God alone is the determiner and provider of all our needful things. He is the only Fountainhead of all our blessings. When we recognize the abundance in the provision of simple, needful things given by God, we find contentment in the abundance of His care. Envy? No longer understand the meaning of the word. How can there be envy while having all He provides, and all identity in Christ to cap it off securely? ‘Tis so sweet to count His provision no small thing at all.
“When you eat and are satisfied, you are to bless the LORD your God for the good land that He has given you.” Deuteronomy 8:10 – The LORD’s daily provisions not only satisfy, they are daily notes sent of His always love.
Matthew 16: 8-10
“O you of little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that
you have no bread?
Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the
five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?
seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?”
