See how He provides all our needs

The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.

"When Jesus looked out and saw that a large crowd had arrived, he said to Philip, "Where can we buy bread to feed these people?" He said this to stretch Philip's faith. He already knew what he was going to do."  (John 6:5  -  6 MSG)

"The eyes of all wait for You [looking, watching, and expecting] and You give them their food in due season."   (Psalm 145:15 AMP)

Give us a servant-spirit dear Jesus

Do not become like Pharaoh

"You've observed how godless rulers throw their weight around, how quickly a little power goes to their heads. It's not going to be that way with you. Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave.

That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for the many who are held hostage."
(Matthew 20:25 -  28  MSG)

Observe the Sunday Rest Scrupulously

The Sunday Rest is a Rehearsal for Eternal Rest

"Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Work six days and do everything you need to do. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to God, your God. Don't do any work—not you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, not even the foreign guest visiting in your town.

For in six days God made Heaven, Earth, and sea, and everything in them he rested on the seventh day. Therefore God blessed the Sabbath day he set it apart as a holy day."
(Exodus 20: 8 -  11 MSG)

Eyes that see the works of Jesus.

Eyes that see the work of salvation.  Ears 👂 that hear the word of God

"I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it."
(Matthew 13:17 NLT)

"[This mystery] was never disclosed to human beings in past generations as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles (consecrated messengers) and prophets by the [Holy] Spirit."
(Ephesians 3:5 AMP)

Give us today our daily bread

God promises adequate provision

"Then the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the heavens for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law or not.
On the sixth day they shall prepare to bring in twice as much as they gather daily."
(Exodus 16:4-5 AMP)

"Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: "It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God's mouth."  (Matthew 4:4 MSG)

Becoming the sister and brother of Jesus

My Father, my mother, my sister and my brother come together in love and doing the will of God the Father.

"Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him."
(John 14:23 NKJV)

"For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
(Matthew 12:50 NIV)
