Quiet Time Requires Trust

“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:7-9 (NCV)

"Jesus didn't say, "Give us this day our monthly bread" or "our weekly bread." He said "daily bread" because we need to learn to depend on God twenty-four hours at a time."

Offering a prayer of trust is the third thing to do in a quiet time. When you do this, your stress level is going to go down because a prayer of trust is the single greatest antidote to worry.

Don’t be afraid to tell God that you’re expecting him to meet all your needs. I love it when my children, and now my grandchildren, trust me. And God loves it when his children trust him.

We show our trust in God when we can say to him, “Lord, I have so many things on my plate. They are impossible. I can’t do them all today so help me know what’s important and what’s not important. Help me not to worry about not getting the unimportant things done. Help me focus on what matters most. I need your strength today to do what I need to do today. I have some financial, physical and emotional needs and I’m depending on you to help me today.”

Now Jesus didn’t say, “Give us this day our monthly bread” or “our weekly bread.” He said “daily bread” because we need to learn to depend on God twenty-four hours at a time. He’s not going to get you to a point where you completely trust him for the next year, so he’s going to teach you to trust him one day at a time. He’s going to give you enough grace, power, and energy to get through today.

Philippians 4:19 says it best, “You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pour from Jesus” (MSG).
