Matthew 5:45 “…for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
b. God will provide
Philippians 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. “ (Supplication = bring a need, entreating.) - Instead of worrying, bring your needs to God.
Psalm 37:25 “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”
2. Daily dependence upon God - “...day by day our daily bread.”
Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
Matthew 6:34 “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
3. Prayer of contentment “...bread.”
Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
God is more than happy to supply your needs, but not your “greeds”.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. Vs 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. Vs 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.”
Proverbs 30:7-9 “Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die: vs 8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Vs 9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.”
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
