Focus on Today

In review of Matthew 6:11 it says, “Give us today our daily bread.”

Bottom Line:
I look to you to provide for my needs today

What this means to me:
I look to you God, to provide for my needs today while I work toward meeting the needs of others.  Matthew 6:11 says, “Give us today our daily bread” (NIV).  It doesn’t say give us today our weekly or yearly bread.  God wants me to trust him one day at a time. I don’t need to be concerned about tomorrow until tomorrow. I don’t need to be concerned about next week until next week.  This means that I don’t have to stress about all the future steps necessary to make me Daniel Strong. I just need to focus on what I need to do for today. Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today” (Matthew 6:34 NLT).  It’s good to have plans for the future, but I shouldn’t obsess about them. They should get planned out and executed so that I’m making progress and not getting behind. I wholeheartedly think that God wants me to take it one day at a time and do what needs to be done today.
