Welcome to the landing page for the 40 Days of Daily Bread devotional series!
Jesus showed us that we can come to the Father for our Daily Bread (Matthew 6:11). Your inner self needs nourishment to be strong and to grow. You might have been unintentionally fasting your spiritual food. Don’t allow yourself to become spiritually malnourished!
You’re here because that means that you are being intentional about staying nourished and thriving!
Would you like to become consistent with having a Daily Time with God?
Do you want to become a stronger follower of Jesus?
Do you need to be encouraged in your walk with the Lord?
If you said yes to any of those questions, then you will find plenty of good spiritual food in the following posts!
Whatever your reason, I know that He has shown me that this time is going to equal one thing…
If you do anything for about 30 to 40 days, you will form a new habit. The number 40 is significant with God because it refers to a time of testing. Are you ready to breakthrough into a greater spiritual maturity?
At the bottom, you will find a description for each day. Some of the posts are related and some stand individually.
You Will Need
- A Willing Heart
God wants to do a work in you during this time. That tug you feel to be involved in this…that is the Holy Spirit saying He is about to prepare you for service. Listen to that.
- 5-15 Minutes Every Day
The posts will be brief, but you are investing eternally!
- A Reminder
If you have a smart phone, set an alarm. If not, sticky notes are tried and true. Place one in a prominent place with a loaf of bread that you’ve sketched. Don’t worry, I can’t draw either. But God doesn’t care about your artistic skills. He’s more concerned with your obedience to follow through!
- A Journal
Have you ever tried to measure your spiritual growth? If you aren’t recording your walk with God, then you are cheating yourself of recording your own spiritual history. A regular notebook will be fine, or even an app such as Evernote.
I pray you are blessed and filled to overflowing through these posts!
