When Jesus taught His disciples (He teaches us also) to ask daily for bread, He did not restrict the petition to the satisfaction of hunger alone. He included all areas of life (spiritual, social, economic).

We need God’s input in the everyday pursuit of life and living. Our daily life, in order to succeed, needs guidance and direction from Him on a regular basis. Following Jesus is not a matter of stops and starts; it is an everyday faithful association covering all aspects of life. In our relationship with Him there are rules and regulations that govern our daily lives. When left without these rules, the flesh becomes unbridled and out of control.

There are rules that apply to one day at a time living. First, we must set aside some time for communion with the Lord. This will set the tone for the remainder of the day. Second, continue the day with available service in His Kingdom work. When we begin our day on our knees it enables us to go forward on our feet in His service. Finally, conclude the day with confession of sins. This assures forgiveness and cleansing.

As we follow these rules we are assured of an overcoming and victorious life. Never forget, faith is the victory, and we are to live by faith. Doubt will always cloud the path, but faith will always see the way.

Thought for today: Our words may hide our thoughts, but our actions will reveal them.

Sermon: Taking for granted.  1 Corinthians 10:1-12.
