Give us today our daily bread. Matthew 6:1
Lifestyle changes whether related to increasing our intake of healthy foods, or increasing our ability to trust God are all daily decisions. We don’t need to focus on what we ate yesterday or how we failed God yesterday but instead start each morning with a plan for today. It is a great habit to record successes and setbacks throughout the day and make corrections, even to review them at the end of the day and repent for our failings; however the next morning starts with a clean slate, an empty basket to gather our manna, our “daily bread.
…Dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Let’s make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1
“…let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without…..” EVERYTHING. If we are defiled in any of the F-areas of our lives, Faith, Food, Fitness, Finances, Focus, Friends, or Family it will affect the others. I can also promise that if you have identified a negative issue in one area there is probably a similar issue in another, you just haven’t admitted it to yourself.
So, let’s choose today to make a clean break from something that is holding us from our full potential. Then trust God to replace that with something from His pantry of mercy and grace.
Give us this day our daily bread Oh Lord,
