Matthew 6:11 11 Give us today our daily bread. (NIV)

When we go without eating we get tired and probably cranky.  We can’t go very many days without eating.  Jesus told us to pray for our daily bread.  This prayer has several levels.  We are to pray for the physical bread that we eat in order to take in the needed nutrients our physical body needs.  We are also to pray for the spiritual bread.  In John 6:33 , (NIV) we read, For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” This bread from God came down from heaven in 2 different ways.  The first way is recorded in John 6:35 (NIV) Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”  We eat our daily bread through Jesus.  After He ascended to heaven we are left with the written Word, the Holy Bible.  For this written word we must have the Holy Spirit in us to give us the ability to digest this bread.  As we read and meditate daily the Holy Spirit will interpret what we read to bring us to understanding and digest it deep within us.  We need this bread daily.  Skipping a meal of this bread will make us spiritually tired and we will get cranky.  Let us not only eat this bread daily, let us feast on it.
