Open your Mouth Wide and I will Fill It

“Open your mouth wide and I will fill it”

I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it. Psalms 81:10

I came across this verse one day and was blown away. To me, Egypt represents any bondage and slavery that has been in the believer’s life. Bondage can be many things, we can be in bondage to our idols, our bad habits, our habitual sin, our addictions, our relationships and more. God is saying, “I am your God who has freed you from your Egypt, don’t go back there! When Jesus died on the cross, He took sin’s power away. It cannot have power over us any longer if we belong to Christ. Yet, we continue to go back and give it power. We continue to go back to Egypt, every time we put on our “old self”, that is before Christ. “If anyone is in in Christ, he is a new creation, behold the new has come, the old has passed away.” (2 Cor. 5:17 ) When we walk in the Spirit’s power, we are putting on our new self and Egypt will look ugly and sad to us. But when we are walking in the old self, before Christ, Egypt looks like the promised land.

As believer’s, we have the choice every day to put on our new self and walk towards our promised land or put on our old self and walk towards Egypt. We can be in the wilderness too and not know which way to go. We don’t know if we are walking towards Egypt or the promised land. That’s when we cry out to God!

God says “Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.” Not only does He say open your mouth, He says open your mouth wide! Wow! God has so much to give us that we have to open our mouths wide to receive it all. He can satisfy our deepest desires and cravings and He wants to! We try to fulfill our desires with so much in this world: food, alcohol, TV, internet, Facebook:), relationships; and while there is nothing wrong with those things in it of themselves, when we crave those things over time with God, we are walking back to Egypt.

Invite God to fill you with the sweetest things of Him, and wait in anticipation with your mouth wide open.

“O God you are my God; earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh faints for You…because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise You…my soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise You with joyful lips..Psalms 63:1-5




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
