Each means the manna for the day is enough. Don’t worry about tomorrow’s manna.
Matthew 6:11: Give us this day our daily bread.
Enough: Jehovah Jireh in the Old Testament was a name for God that foreshadowed this text of prayer. In Jesus, we meet The LORD, Our Provider. Provider is a compound Latin word just as ji-reh is a compound Hebrew word. Each means “to see beforehand”. Each means that the “pro-vision” for the journey is in the path waiting for us each day. Each means the manna for the day is enough. Don’t worry about tomorrow’s manna.
Sure Enough: Sally had been praying for her friend for months. The job he had was good, but not what he wanted. Family had to take second place to every decision of the company. Her friend, Jake, was struggling. His marriage was strained. His time with his kids was pressed. He had lost many years of good time with his family. Maybe God could provide him a different opportunity. She was encouraged after talking with Greg. A new opportunity in Greg’s office might be Jake’s answer. God could provide.

ACT! Take one worry about what you will need for today and throw it away. That’s right, throw it away. Place it on the altar of prayer and don’t look back all day.
PRAY! Jehovah Jireh, You are my vision before I get there. You have put in my path all that is necessary for life and Godliness. You have made me a partaker of Your divine nature. You have ordered my steps. You have made my lines to fall in pleasant places. Thank You, Father, for giving me my daily bread. Thank You that in Jesus I have all I need every day according to Your riches in glory in Him.
