Jesus Is The Bread of Life
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
Give us this day our daily bread.
In this petition of the Lord's Prayer, Jesus is speaking to daily provision of our needs. We are to ask the Father for these things with thanksgiving. We also are to remember that we do not survive on bread alone, but on every word that comes from God. Jesus, indeed, as you say, is the very bread of life, as He is the Word of God, eternally so. He, with the Father and the Holy Spirit are the source and sustainers of all life. We owe our existence to Him.
Acknowledging that we need God to supply our daily needs and asking for this provision keeps us cognizant of our dependence upon Him and His goodness. We can be confident that when we ask Him for our daily needs, in the name of Jesus, the Father will supply for us what we need for that day or moment. This is such a wonderful blessing from God.
