Little Things Count Big

Fresh baked loaf of sourdough bread.

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?

Bread

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.

Prayer

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…

 

Thought

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? 

Or the

 seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?”

  1. “When we recognize the abundance in the provision of simple, needful things given by God, we find contentment in the abundance of His care.” So true. Thankyou for this reminder G.W of how well God cares for us!
