DIVING DEEPER

Welcome to the Diving Deeper area where you can learn more about Worship.

Worship is expressing your affection to God, focusing your attention on God, and using your abilities for God.

“Give us today our daily bread.” (Matthew 6:11 NIV)

Matthew 6:11 says, “Give us today our daily bread” (NIV).

Notice the Bible doesn’t say, “Give us today our weekly bread” or “Give us today our yearly bread.” 

God wants you to trust him one day at a time. You don’t need to be concerned about tomorrow until tomorrow. You don’t need to be concerned about next week until next week.

This means you don’t have to stress about all the future steps necessary to make you Daniel Strong. You just need to focus on what you need to do for today. You can focus on succeeding at the Daniel Plan one day at a time.

Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today” (Matthew 6:34 NLT).

Talk It Over

  • What aspects of the Daniel Plan do you tend to worry about? Why do you think that is? How might this be related to trusting God?
  • Why do you think God wants you to take it one day at a time?
  • Make a list of all your concerns related to your Daniel Plan journey. Now trim the list down to only those things you need to deal with today. Share your concerns, and talk to God about them.
