Psalm 104: 27-30 Ask

posted Jun 26, 2020, 12:55 PM by Jacob Boer

These all look to you to give them their food in due season; when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the ground.”

Jesus encourages us to ask God for the things we need for our day to day lives. By asking God to give us what we need, we are reminded of God’s generosity, we are reminded that all things belong to God and it encourages us to be humble in the asking. We are so used to thinking that we have to take care of ourselves and our loved ones, that we forget that we are God’s family and loved ones and he desires to provide for us, to give us the good things that we need. So as you talk to God today, do not hesitate to ask him for the things you need, be willing to admit to God that you depend on him, and trust that he will give you what you need.

Q. What does the fourth petition mean?

A. “Give us this day our daily bread” means: Do take care of all our physical needs so that we come to know that you are the only source of everything good, and that neither our work and worry nor your gifts can do us any good without your blessing. And so help us to give up our trust in creatures and trust in you alone.
