31 Days of Seeing God in the Mess of Real Life

Day 11- where do we look for help?


Jesus said to them ” I am the bread of life whoever comes to me shall not hunger and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

The people wanted Jesus to feed them again. They wanted another physical sign.

They bought up Moses and manna – Jesus pointed them to God.

“It is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.”

Yeah people – the true bread is a person.

True satisfaction comes from a person.

Jesus ..the Bread of Life.

This bread of life message cost Jesus dearly. He lost a lot of followers that day.

It’s not a popular message.

Jesus said” It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh is no help at all.” John 6:63

Where do I look for help?

I love reading self improvement books – I want to live my Best Life Ever, right!

I tend to look at the physical like the people in John 6 did.

But according to this verse….

…Self help is no help.

Whenever my sons have an issue or problem – I ask “did you pray about it?”


I am guilty of that too.

Why do we not talk to the Bread of Life first?

What would my life look like if I went to the Spirit for my help and life first?

I probably would see…

…God move

…heaven on earth

…the treasure that is worth selling everything for

Dear God,

Remind me daily to look to the Bread of Life

Move and work in my world today.

In the name of Jesus, Amen – so be it!


I would love to hear how you discover God in your messy real everyday life too – please leave a comment
