Now we have jobs, budgets, savings plans, pensions, investments, a 401k retirement…why do we need to pray for God to give us daily bread? Francis Chan exposes our craving for control and challenges our need for long term security. Are we trusting in God or in our assets and ingenuity? These practices, though certainly not all bad, can lead to a less faith-filled, prayerful, and God-dependent life. In fact, some of us are doing all that we can to avoid placing ourselves in any position that requires total reliance on the LORD for what we daily need.
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.“- Saint
