I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it (Ps. 81:10 KJV)
Have you ever seen a mother feeding a child and the child opens his mouth wider when he sees a bigger piece of food in the mother’s hand? By opening his mouth wider, the child is making room to contain that which the mother has in her hands. The Lord says to you today “open your mouth wide and I will fill it!”
When you open your mouth wide, you are simply making room or enlarging your capacity to receive and contain God’s blessings in your life. The Lord commanded the Israelites to “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes” (Isa. 54:2 KJV)
Your desire and capacity to receive are like a vacuum pump that sucks blessings out of heaven. What can you believe God for? It shall be unto you according to your faith. Can you believe God for a billion dollar company or just a neighborhood retail store? By opening your mouth wider your desire, your verbal requests to God, and your faith that believes and receives all work together. These are some of the main things that determine your capacity to receive before God.
The Lord is instructing you today regarding your ministry, career, health, business, etc that you should open your mouth wide and enlarge the place of your tent. He wants you to think and believe big things.
What does God use to fill the mouth of His children who are open to Him? See Ps. 103:5. Carefully ponder and mutter the words “open your mouth wide and I will fill it.”
APPLY THE WORD
What is your receiving capacity? Be courageous and bold in your God. You will not receive what you cannot see. Think and believe big things and watch what God will do!
Bless the Lord who satisfies your mouth with good things every day (Ps. 103:5).
