30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 8

I am thankful for God's daily provision.

Matthew 6:9-13
 "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

These are requests for physical needs, forgiveness of sins, and spiritual victories. The prayer ends with a new acknowledgement of God’s glory.  Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones has accurately written, “Our whole life is found there in those three petitions, and that is what makes this prayer so utterly amazing. In such a small compass our Lord has covered the whole life of the believer in every respect. Our physical needs, our mental needs and, of course, our spiritual needs are included. The body is remembered, the soul is remembered, the spirit is remembered. And that is the whole of man.”

Matthew 7:7-11
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.  Is there anyone among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone:  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake:  If you then, although you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heave give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!"

 Matthew 6:33
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."

Dear Heaven Father,  Thank You for Your daily provisions for my body, soul and spirit that come from Your gracious hand.  How very grateful I am, God, that You see my needs and provide so that I can focus on Your Kingdom work.  Thank you for your good gifts.  In Jesus Name, Amen

Have a Blessed Day,
