Jesus taught us to pray and give thanks for our “daily bread” (Matthew 6:11). I wonder what He meant by that? If man does not live by “bread alone” (Matthew 4:4), then there is something more at work here.
We need bread (food) because our physical, natural bodies need nourishment. But our souls must be sustained with supernatural provision – the Bread of Life – “on every Word that comes from the mouth of God.” Thankfully, we have that eternal Word of God written down for us in 66 books and some 31,000 verses we call “The Bible” that’s ready for us to feast on.
We are not able to go without food for very long before hunger pangs let us know we need to eat. Every morning when we wake up, we are greeted by these pangs and we break the fast of our sleep with something to fuel our bodies for the day ahead.
Why not prepare breakfast with some soul food as well?

“O taste and see that the Lord is good…”
