Most folks are familiar with the verse from “The Lord’s Prayer”, requesting
“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt 6:11)
But is that really enough? And is it only about food?
One focus of the book Enough by Will Davis, Jr. is a powerful section of Proverbs, Proverbs 30:7-9. The writer (Agur) asks God for two simple things:
- Keep lies away from his own lips
- Supply him with just enough. Not more. Not less. Enough.
Our nature – my nature – is too often to be so focused on the concerns of tomorrow, I miss out on how God answers my prayers today. God is faithful to provide my daily needs (Matt 6:25-34).
Why do I have so little faith, that rather than rest in His promise, I worry about tomorrow.
*A Proverbs a day, keeps the enemy at bay.
