WHAT IS IT?                                                                                          “No Different”

See Exodus 16 (pew Bible, pg. 112)

1. God gave them special food called ____________________?

2. God wants our __________________ on Him to be as dangerously close to daily as possible.

See Matthew 6:9-13 (pew Bible pg. 1504)

Matthew 6:26, 28-30, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you—you of little faith?”

3. If there is one central truth to all the Bible it is this: You                    ______________________ to God!

Matthew 6:31-32, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.”

4. Two Qualifiers:                                                                                     a. This is ___________ an invitation to passivity. Meaning —             “All I have to do is pray for daily bread; God will give it, so no need to _______________ for it.”                                                                     b. We need to be careful __________ to confuse asking for our daily bread — a ____________ — with our daily ____________.

5. Praying for “my daily bread” carries with it the idea that perhaps, as I pray, I may be the ____________ to provide God’s bread to another who is praying.
