If you’ve been visiting here for even a few times, you’ve found quite a few Bible verses. I truly love God’s word. Both of them – the Word as described in John 1:1 and His word as given to us in the Holy Bible. But how do we really apply these verses – and Christ – in our daily lives? So I decided to take a look at what the Bible has to say about daily. The first time I found the word it related to Israelites in Egypt working without straw:
And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw. (Exodus 5:13 KJV)
I was struck by Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, even though the material to do so was not available.
Can we do this each day in our own lives? Does God expect us to continue fulfilling our own work day by day when supplies are lacking? Some of the other ‘daily’ verses come to mind as to how we should accomplish our daily tasks.
Praising God for each and every day in our lives, no matter what it brings is a great start.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. (Psalms 68:19 KJV)
Ask for His mercy and learn from those who asked for and received it.
Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. (Psalms 86:3-4 KJV)
Christ gave us the prayer to take care of our daily needs,
Give us this day our daily bread. (Matthew 6:11 KJV)
And, He gave us the example of daily carrying burdens.
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Luke 9:23 KJV)
Each day, He taught in His Father’s house.
And he taught daily in the temple. (Luke 19:47a KJV)
His followers took this example to heart, being in His Father’s house daily (not just on Sunday mornings, thank you!)
And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. (Acts 5:42 KJV)
And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily. (Acts 16:5 KJV)
As His words and works were received, they were studied daily.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. (Acts 17:11 KJV)
So I read my Bible with daily prayer, I attend services supporting my church, speak of His love and publish in accordance with His word, then go about fulfilling my daily tasks.
But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:13 KJV)
