 Depending on God - 11/10/10

Not too rich, but not too poor

November 10, 2010

 

In Deuteronomy 8:1-4, Moses tells the people that the LORD had taken them through the wilderness and suffered them to hunger and fed them with manna and provided for their every need so that they would know that man does not live on bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD. God was training them to depend on Him. He later warned that when they had much they would forget Him.

Proverbs 30:8-9 offers an excellent prayer to counter the tendency that we all have to want to be self-sufficient. This is my prayer “Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for ...me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.”

Fill me today with that which is the only thing that I really need, You my Lord, Bread of heaven and precious Bread of life.
