21 But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 
22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 
23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 
24 "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."  - Lamentations 3:21-24

The Lord is our portion - He is exactly what we need, exactly when we need it. When God provided manna for the Israelites, He told them to eat their fill, but not to save any for the next day. Of course, several did because they did not trust there would be more.  Just as we struggle to believe God will provide, so do we. The Israelites woke the next morning to discover what they saved was filled with maggots. 

God wants the same thing for us as He wanted for the Israelites. He wants us to trust Him each day for what we need. He wants us to be dependent on Him each morning as we face the day asking our Provider for our portion. Each day. We ask Him to give us our daily bread - not our weekly, or monthly. Daily we need to go to Him. We don't get to stockpile our portion, we get just enough for today. 

God does that because He knows our hearts so well. He knows we can get wrapped up in this world so easily, He knows our tendency to rely on our own strength and provision, He knows we need to be filled daily with the faith and strength to face what is in front of us. So thankful for a faithful God who calls us to Him to fill us up every single day. 

Press on ~ you are loved 💗
