I’ve been stuck on the life, death, and resurrection of Christ lately…God has really been revealing Himself to me in many ways on this subject matter.
Each night Merinda and I pray The Lord’s Prayer over Jude…which he can say by himself. I was saying it one night and I believe I had a revelation when I got to the ‘give us this day, our daily bread’ part. Jesus said it like this in John 6:35, “I am the bread of life, He who comes to me will never go hungry…’
As I say this prayer each night I think…Give me this day, our daily bread…or, give me my needs, give me the necessities of life, give me this, give me that…and before I know it I have a huge ‘to-do-list’ for God with just the simple words of, give me my daily bread. But I think there’s something more to this. I think Christ was saying I am the bread of life and when you pray, pray that you will eat of my bread, daily. In other words…give me You, Jesus, the bread of life that was broken for all of humanity. Fill me with the life of Christ…fill me with your spirit…so that I will never go hungry.
So when I pray the Lord’s Prayer I pray it like this in my spirit…”Father in heaven, holy and righteous is Your name. Let your kingdom come and let Your will be done in my life and on earth just as it is in heaven. Today…live inside of me and give me new life that is only found in You, Your daily bread. Forgive me of my wrong doings as I forgive those who have done me wrong. Save me from the trails of this life and deliver me from evil. The kingdom, power, and glory are Yours forever. So be it!
