Bread of Heaven

“And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee: for Thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.”
Psalm 9:10

After World War II, in an effort to help boys left as orphans, a group of humanitarians housed them in tent cities. However, the boys would wake up in the night from nightmares. Then a psychiatrist surmised that their fear was because they had such an uncertain future. The psychiatrist decided to feed the boys a big meal each night, and then give them each a piece of bread. He instructed them to hold the bread in their hands so it could be their breakfast the next morning. Somehow just holding in their hands a piece of bread helped them to sleep all night. When you go to bed tonight, I want you to have bread, not in your hand, but in your heart. He is the Bread of Heaven, and His name is Jesus!

Take a walk with the Lord today, and tell Him your fears. Confidently place them before the Lord, and trust in His love to provide.

Adrian Rogers, Love Worth Finding
