Matthew 6:9 Pray then like this: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."
Most of us have more than a day's supply of food available to us right in our house. Why should we ask the Lord to give us our daily bread? Reason number one is because He told us to. He knows what we need to do and we should do what He commands. Reason two is because we are dependent upon the Lord alone for our daily bread and He has taught us that we gain our daily provision by prayer. The best place to be in life is completely dependent upon the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our source of daily bread is only secondarily the place we work to earn money. God provides our job and our ability to work our job. If we begin to think that our job is our primary source of daily bread, then our allegiance and values will be dictated by our job. Our security will be in our job. Our sense of well-being will be in our job. What happens if the job goes away? Our security and well-being go away. What happens if our job demands we do what goes against what is right? We do what isn't right to keep our source of provision.
If the Lord is our primary source of provision and is always with us, then our security and well-being survive loss of job. If the Lord is our sole source of provision, then our allegiance is to the Lord and we will do what pleases Him which is right for everyone.
Who is your source of provision? That question can be answered by answering the following questions. Who is your allegiance to? Whose values do you practice? Do you sleep well if you think your job is in jeopardy?
Depend totally upon the Lord for your daily bread and ask Him for each day's supply. He will never leave or forsake you and is able to provide all you need all the time.
