January 19 – Day 5: The Lord’s Prayer
Depending on Him
I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! (Psalm 121:1-2)
“…give us today our daily bread…”
DEPEND ON HIM FOR EVERYTHING
Do you depend on God for everything? Not just the big stuff like miracles, or salvation. Everything. It’s easier to depend on him for the things we can’t do ourselves. But do you depend on God for your food? For the gas in your car? For your job? Do you depend on God to order your day and for the people who cross your path?
It’s a good exercise to depend on him for the things you are used to providing yourself. You can start by thanking him for everything— especially for those little things that feel routine and easy.
Today, ask God for what you need, and for what you want. And then trust in him to provide you with the answer.
