Day 20 – 2017 Fasting (Saturday)

On January 28th, 2017, posted in: 21 Day Fast 2017, Devotionals by | 1 Comment

Ever sat down to think about what tomorrow will bring? No! Wait! The question is more like, “Ever sat down to worry about what tomorrow will bring?” Ever spend a day worrying about things you really have no control over? Yes, you’re seeing God’s provision TODAY but for whatever odd reason, you overwhelm yourself with tomorrow’s uncertainties? Ever been there? I have.

I can’t help but think about a line in Jesus’ prayer outline to his disciples: “Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread…” Wait! What? Did He say, “Give us THIS day…?” What a promise given to us through the power of prayer! Every morning when you wake up, you have the promise to believe God for today’s provision. Though this does not mean that you can you live an idle, ineffective life, it does mean that you can depend on God all day, every day…for tomorrow will take care of itself.

Didn’t God test the people of Israel in the desert when he provide Manna? “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or not.” (Ex.16:4) God knew that His people would try to gather for many days in fear that God’s provision would run out.

Why do we become so anxious about the unknown? Worried about the problems that are yet to appear? Why do we hold back on enjoying the life God has given us? We hold back on emptying ourselves in His presence with intense worship and praise. Why? Don’t you know that tomorrow morning He has given you the same promise he gave you today – Daily Bread!

Fast and pray that you would have the understanding and faith to trust God EVERYDAY. That you would be able to walk in His provision EVERYDAY! That you would be able to pour yourself out knowing that He is pouring into you…EVERYDAY!

Fast and pray that you would be able to break every pattern of worry, anxiety and the fear-of-the-unknown syndrome that so often plagues God’s people. You can’t go back and redo yesterday. Tomorrow, well let’s just say it’s not here yet. But you can live life to its’ fullest today! THIS IS the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Here are some scripture verses to read and meditate on throughout the day: (Click on the verses to read them on www.Biblegateway.com).

Believing for Daily Bread with you,

Pastor Charles
