“I, the LORD, am your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide and I will fill it. (Ps. 81:10 NAS)
The LORD is El-Shaddai, the highly breasted One, who is able to meet all the needs of His people. He is able to meet both our spiritual and natural needs. Psalms 107:9 tells that “He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good“. God knows how to meet the deep needs of our hearts, but also the material needs of our natural life. One of our biggest challenges is to trust God not only for our spiritual needs, but for our natural needs. Some believers make the mistake of thinking about God only when they need forgiveness or something spiritual, and keep Him out of their finances, jobs, or relationships.
The Lord’s challenge to you is to “open your mouth wide” and He will fill it. There are at least two aspects of this challenge. The first is to look to God to have your needs met. The second, which is portrayed by the word “wide”, is a challenge to “think big”. Do not limit God based on your current financial or social situation. How far can you see? He says “Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your pegs (Isa. 54:2 NAS). If you will be able to “open your mouth wide”, then God will fill it. Dare to dream big and believe God.
Think on the verse above for a moment. How wide can you open your mouth for God to fill? What can you see with your life, ministry, business, and relationships? Our limitation is how far we can see, not God’s ability to do.
Thank God for the assurance of being there for us when we need Him. Pray that the Spirit will enable you to remove God from the box you might have put Him in unknowingly.
