About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series
Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?
When Jesus speaks of bread, He doesn’t refer to physical supply only. “Give us this day our daily bread.” Bread is practical – real food – but also spiritual. We need to be sustained constantly. We are keenly aware of our physical need but not so alert to our unending hunger for spiritual health and divine life.
Jesus means us to be full – spirit, soul and body. The Shepherd supplies all. There is an eternal food. It is a gift, free and full, without cost. There is a work involved; it is to come to the place of simply receiving the Gift of ‘lasting food.’
Stop toiling and doing and producing for the food that perishes and decomposes [in the using], but strive and work and produce rather for the [lasting] food which endures [continually] unto life eternal; the Son of Man will give [furnish] you that, for God the Father has authorized and certified Him and put His seal of endorsement upon Him.
