Give us this day our daily bread

11 days that will transform you life
A pilgrimage on dusty roads  through spectacular landscapes. The sun paints artistic shades on sandstone mountainsides. The wind carries a strange freshness in the air. The Maluti mountains boast their splendour. The African soil under your feet reminds of a journey deep within.
Let your heart and mind find its resting place in God. Read more

On a long prayer-walk I attended a church service, and met a person from one of the other small towns in the area. I was invited to come and visit, should I happen to pass through their town.

A few days later I recognised the name of the town as I entered it on the main road. The directions were easy to remember – “just follow the main road and look out for the old church building on the left side. Our house is the first one after that”.

I knocked. No one came to the door. It was already late and I wondered if I should continue or wait. I asked the Lord and felt in my heart to wait.

A little later a car arrived. They had just gone out to buy dinner at the local fast food outlet.

And here’s the miracle: With tears in her eyes, the host explained to me that she didn’t have food for her family for that evening’s dinner. In the afternoon, out of the blue, her dad just said to her that she should take his card and go buy dinner at the local fast food outlet. She made a count of all the family members and ordered a meal for each.

On her way home she realised that she ordered and paid for one meal too many. When they arrived at their house with the food, there I was … and He provided dinner!

Dinner that evening was precious, because we all realised that God provided our daily bread as our Father. Even as her father in a way, prophetically, paid for all the meals (including the extra one for me).

Since that day, when-ever I pray “give us this day, our daily bread”, I remember God’s Father’s heart and understand a little more of His love for me.

Father

Give us this day our daily bread

We ask this in Jesus’ name

Amen
