“Open your mouth wide.”
Psalm 81: 10 (NLT)
10 “For it was I, the Lord your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things.”
I am reminded of my children when they were still toddlers, and I had to feed them. I would sit next to them at the table and ask them: “baby, open your mouth wide.” You are scooping food into their open mouths. I imagine God is also speaking to you and me today. “Open your mouth wide” receive the good things God has in store for you today. Receive abundance in faith, peace love, and kindness, compassion and understanding, self-control and money, food and friendships. Whatever your needs are, speak to the Lord, meditate on today thoughts. God is able to address each and every need you have. God is inspiring you to “open your mouth wide” so that you are able to receive His good things.
Lord, O Lord, thank you for this visual of my children where they “open their mouths wide” to receive the good food I prepared for them. I too sit here, and I open my mouth wide to receive the good things You have for me today. Thank You; Lord, in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen
