This morning as I sat down to write a note of New Year encouragement to a friend in a nursing facility, God spoke to me…has this ever happened to you? All kinds of platitudes were appearing on the page like, Hope this New Year is brighter…Glad 2020 is over. You get the idea. Then I decided to add a Bible verse to fill space in the card (being honest here). I reached over to check my favorite Bible App on my phone, looking for a meaningful verse of encouragement. This is the verse that He gave to me.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Matthew 6:11 (ESV)
Today…not tomorrow, not next week, not all of 2021. After all, we do not know what the future holds. We can hope and wish for better times…but what if? What if 2021 is not better…what if covid never goes away…what if? This verse today gives me great comfort. God has this! We are to trust Him each and every day. He gives us what we need and I praise Him for that!
Thank you, Lord for showing me today that you give me what I need every day. Amen
