Give Them Their Daily Bread

God knew what I needed, even if I didn’t know myself.

"The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” (Romans 8:26)

More than once, I’ve been too upset or in too much pain to pray with words. However, I’ve never felt like God abandoned me; I never felt out of communion with Him. I felt like something in me was still calling to Him, even though I couldn’t even express what I needed. God knew what I needed, even if I didn’t know myself.

Daily Needs
One of the sentences Jesus taught His followers to pray was, “Give us today our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11) this can be a form of requesting that God meet all our needs. Of course, “bread” was not all Jesus ever asked the Father for; and we need more than just food. It’s so wonderful that the Bible gives us so many examples of Jesus praying, so we know that we, His followers, can also come to the Father with all our prayers.

Needing Salvation
Before He died, Jesus prayed, “for all who will ever believe in Me through [the Disciples’] message. … May they be in Us so that the world will believe You sent Me”(John 17:20-21). The most important thing every person needs is God’s salvation – the chance to know and live for Jesus. Many people do not know there is a God, let alone that they need the Lord.

Share Your Bread
When you share your faith with friends, they might not be able to tell you what they need. You can let them know that it’s okay not to know, that Jesus covered it in the Lord’s Prayer with “daily bread,” and that Jesus told His followers that the “Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask Him!”(Matthew 17:20-21) . Maybe your friends will let you pray over their needs – both spoken and unspoken – with them. What a great witness!

Prayer, Care and Share Jesus
If you cannot physically assist someone in need – Pray Now!

Scripture: " "Is anyone among you in trouble? Let him pray. … Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." (James 5:13, 16-17 NIV)

Sometimes we can’t solve the problems of people around us by using what we have. But we can go to our greatest resource – God. No matter what a person's problem is – fear about a test, money for a pressing need, a broken down car, illness – it can be brought before God in prayer.

Praying silently for someone's need is a good first step if you have not prayed out loud before. But our encouragement is to pray out loud when you can. Start today!

God gives great joy when you pray out loud with someone! For example, you can say: "Let's just ask God to help us with your need." Then pray briefly closing your prayer by saying, "in Jesus name."

Rarely will someone say "No" to your prayer offer. But if they do, just say: "OK". Then give a very friendly goodbye and pray silently for them as you walk away.

You will be amazed about the positive response of most people.

A Helpful Tip:Don’t worry if, at first, you feel you can’t ask people out loud to pray for them. Pray silently and ask the Lord to help you make the connection. The Lord helped me get over my fear to pray for a friend about a need. It was a “wow” moment. And from then on, I could do it more and more!

Pray this week:

You will have the courage to ask the person in need if you can pray for them about the issue.

It is easy to share our time, energy and money with people but harder to 'share the Good News'. Why do you think that is? What will you do to point the world to Jesus today? Not sure? Ask a Christian for help to learn more.

Daily Bread: A Rock Solid Foundation Do you have unhealthy relationships influencing you?

Prepare
Do you ever wonder what it takes to please God? It couldn’t be clearer than in Proverbs. Ask God to give you a willing heart as you prepare to be counseled by Him.

Read
Proverbs 1:1-19

Explore
There is a well-known saying in Spanish – “Tell me who you walk with and I will tell you who you are.”

Who you associate with tells a lot about a person. And in Proverbs, the Lord wastes no time warning against such basic mistakes.

It is interesting that the fear of the Lord (vs 1-7) and choosing friends (vs 10-19) are the first two subjects in the book of Proverbs. We should not take lightly this first passage – one of the longest in the whole book. As Solomon, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, lays the foundation on how to live a successful life, he gives us two clear points of emphasis – wisdom through the fear of the Lord and foolishness through poor relationships (v 7).

Take time to check out Psalm 128:1, Psalm 112:1, Proverbs 8:3, Job 1:1, and 2 Corinthians 5:11a. In each passage, the fear of the Lord has a direct correlation to walking in His ways, finding delight in His commands, and hating evil. It is a direct rebuke of foolish, undisciplined living.

Do you desire to be filled with wisdom and knowledge? Do you want to honor God with your life and fear Him with a holy fear? Then start by looking at your influences. Who do you spend time with? Who influences you? Is it God, or is it unhealthy friendships?

Respond
Heavenly Father, I look to you from the depths of my heart to give me daily direction for every aspect of my life. Thank you for your personal counsel.

Is Jesus the rock in your foundation? Do you believe He can truly calm the storms in your life? Talk to one of our volunteers about the storms going on in your life and ask for prayer.

How to Make Bible Reading a Daily Habit

Begin a practice that nourishes your spiritual life and makes you useful to God

Be like newborn babies who are thirsty for the pure spiritual milk that will help you grow and be saved.

1 Peter 2:2
When Peter compared the Bible to the milk which feeds a newborn baby, it was a picture we can all understand. Have you ever seen a baby hungry for food? Every attitude and action comes from intense desire. This is how God wants us to approach His Word.

But the Bible is a big book! It can’t be read in one sitting. How is a new follower of Jesus supposed to get the nourishment he or she needs for growth? Read on for practical encouragement to get you started on a lifetime of growth.

To Fuel Your Desire for God’s Word:
Think of the many benefits the Bible promises the reader. Within its pages, you can read the confirming stories from those who read and treasured it while it was still being written. They experienced:

Growing faith (Romans 10:17)
Clarity for knowing and following God’s will (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Knowing God’s character (John 1:18, 16:14)
Better insight into their own nature (Hebrews 4:12)
Instruction from the successes and failures of others (Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:11)
Increasing peace (Psalm 119:165)
Growth in purity (John 17:17; Ephesians 5:26)
Here’s How to Make Reading the Bible a Habit
First, know the benefits of doing this. (See the list above.) “By your teachings, Lord, I am warned; by obeying them, I am greatly rewarded.” (Psalm 19:11). Meditate on these things. Appreciate what is to be gained. Do you want to know God and experience His guidance? Do you want to be instructed in how to avoid pitfalls? Do you want purity, inspiration and peace? Committing yourself to daily time in the word is the first step toward making real gains in these important areas.
Go public with your commitment. Knowing your friends, your spouse, children or parents want you to succeed can make you rethink any thoughts of simply giving up. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Set aside a time each day, in a quiet place where you can focus on the most important thing — hearing from God. (Luke 10:41-42) For many, that time is first thing in the morning.
Have a plan. (Proverbs 21:5) We already mentioned that the Bible is big: 66 books, with 1,189 chapters containing over 31,000 verses. It may seem too much at first, but it isn’t hard to manage with a good plan. And there are many good ones. For example, reading about three chapters a day will allow you to read the whole Bible in a year or you can read through the New Testament in a year if you read only about five minutes a day. Whatever you choose, make a decision to eventually get to it all. As Paul advised Timothy: “Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
Take notes. (Jeremiah 30:2) If you had the opportunity to spend the day with an honored mentor, would you take a notebook with you? Of course. Why not make notes about what God shows you each day? If you do, you’ll get more lasting benefit out of it.
Don’t have an all-or-nothing attitude. (Matthew 21:28-31) Set modest goals, but take them seriously. Forgive yourself when you miss a goal, but don’t give up.
Physical growth can only happen when a child has plenty of nourishment. It’s the same with our spiritual lives. Followers of Jesus need a good diet of God’s Word. Otherwise, our spiritual lives begin to suffer. If you read the Bible and pray daily, you will be surprised by how much you grow in your knowledge of God and His will for you.

And just as activity as well as nourishment are necessary for healthy growth, Jesus challenges His followers, “You know these things, and God will bless you if you do them.” (John 13:17) It is when you put what He shows you into practice that “what you know about our Lord Jesus” makes your life “useful and meaningful.” (2 Peter 1:1-8)

Pray this week:

God, I thank You for these invitations to appreciate the value of Your Word. Please open new ways for me to consistently read it so that I can be more in step with You.
