Daily bread ( Matthew 6 v 9 - 13 )

'Give us today our daily bread',  Many years ago my Pastor said this request was not for now, I think he said it applied to a future,tribulation. After all He said, we have no shortage of food, well when I was living by faith often I had a shortage,and many dear believers have a shortage,and to them it seems a very meaningful thing to pray.Of course the Lord has supplied my need,but the general principal, in requesting for daily provision,is a very needy reminder of our dependence on God for our daily needs.So many people have lost sight of their dependence on God.W. Barclay writes,'By implication, this petition gives God His proper place,' Let the unbeliever scoff at this,in their proud ungrateful spirit,but let us never, forget our food is  a direct gift from a gracious and loving God.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      All good gifts around us                                                                                                                            Are sent from heaven above,                                                                                                                      Then thank the Lord, O thank                                                                                                                     the Lord                                                                                                                                                     For all His love.                                                                                                                                          ( M. Claudius/J.M.Campbell)
