I came across this devotion and wanted to share it with you and pray it gives you encouragement. I know that I go through seasons of negativity and worrying for the outcome. Not sure what’s going to happe. And why God isn’t intervening like I think he should. Especially when I watch the news or listen to politics. But it’s so important to remember where we need to put our trust! That God says He will never leave us nor forsake us! He knows what he’s doing and has a bigger plan than we realize. He will be our sustainer. He has an amazing plan for each of us!
Psalms 118:8 says “It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in people.”
John 14:1 also says “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.”
It’s so important to realign our focus on who we can trust and have the assurance that He will pick us up when we fall and guide us through any troubles or stresses life has to offer us. Fill ourselves with His goodness and the life that He has called us to!
With that being said – here is the devotion. Have an amazing day!
“Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it…”
(Psalm 81:10, NLT
Open Your Mouth
Do you have your mouth open wide today? In other words, are you expecting God to fill you and increase you beyond measure? Are ready for Him to satisfy your needs and desires with good things? Think about a baby bird. When they are ready to eat, they open their mouths wide. They trust that they will be fed. They expect it. They look for it. They are ready for it.
It should be the same way with us. We need to keep our spiritual mouths open by expecting the goodness of God to satisfy us. Negative thinking is like closing your mouth. A closed mouth can’t be filled. But Jesus is saying today, why don’t you take the limits off? Why don’t you trust and believe for supernatural opportunities?
That little bird waiting for food isn’t concerned about where the mother is going to get it from. It isn’t concerned about how she’s going to dig it up. No, that bird just opens its mouth, trusting and waiting. Why don’t you do the same today? Trust that God is working behind the scenes. Open your mouth wide today, you won’t be disappointed. God is faithful to His Word, and He will fill you and satisfy you when you put your trust in Him!
