Live Your Moments: Learn to Live in God

Praying, “Give us this day our daily bread,” calls us to look beyond those needs we can earn, pay for, and acquire on our own to outside of ourselves, to God. Faith is more than belief, it is trust. When asked to write a statement of faith as part of a job interview, in contrast to the long statements of others about God as Father, Son, and Spirit or God as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, this pastor simply wrote, “I trust God.”
Praying for daily bread and looking each day for needs instead of wants is a crucial practice to learn the art of faith, to learn to live in God, in the world, and in this life.

Van Morrison offers a helpful question for reflection on whether or not we are seeking our daily bread from God. Morrison asks,

When will I ever learn to live in God?
When will I ever learn?
He gives me everything I need and more
When will I ever learn?
