Prayer (2016) Part Six

Matthew 6:11

Give us this day our daily bread………..


—the Lord’s name is Provision – Jehovah Jireh – Genesis 22:14 -the Lord provided a ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac

-Jehovah Jireh means the Lord will provide – it is a future action

-Psalm 23:1 – The Lord is My Shepherd…I shall not want…

There is one main meaning here:

1. It means to be totally content and satisfied with Jesus

-all we need is Jesus

-only Jesus satisfies

-David left the sentence incomplete and so fill in the blank……

-be careful concerning stuff…

a. stuff will not make you happy or last – Psalm 144:15

-will no last – visit a landfill and see all of the stuff that does not last…

-will not make us happy – we all are desiring creations, but we must say no to stuff


b. stuff cannot be taken with you – 1 Timothy 6:6-10 (v7)

“Give us his day our daily Bread”

1. Provision is based on he Lord’s character

-He is a Provider

2. Provision is based on the Word of God – Phil 4:19

-the Word says to give

-the Word says to work

-the Word says to live for Him – Mat 6:33

Our Daily Bread…

-the Lord provided for Israel in he wilderness for 40 years – MANNA – Exodus Chapter 16…Manna represents Jesus Christ who is he Bread of Life

1. Exodus – 16:4 – Manna was gathered daily

a. it came down from heaven – it was a free gift – v15

b. he Manna was sent to the wilderness of Sin

2. Exodus 16:4, 13-15  – Manna was gathered daily –

-we must have our own personal relationship with Jesus Christ
