“…Open wide your mouth and I will fill
(Psalm 81:10, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
One way we “close our mouths” so
to speak, is by choosing negative thoughts. If you go around thinking, “Well, I
don’t think I’ll ever meet my sales goals this year with the economy like it
is”; or “I don’t think I’ll ever get promoted because I’m not that qualified”;
or “I don’t think I’ll ever get well,” then the problem is that your mouth is
barely open. But Jesus said, “According to your faith it will be done unto
you.” He might as well have said, “If you’ve got a cup, I’ll fill you with a
cup’s worth of blessing. If you’ve got a bucket, I’ll fill you with a bucket’s
worth of blessing.” I believe He is asking us to take the limits off our
thinking, and believe for supernatural opportunities. Why don’t you go out each
day expecting increase and promotion? If you’ll go out each day expecting
far-and-beyond favor, if you’ll “open wide your mouth,” you won’t be
disappointed. He’ll fill your cup until it overflows so that you can live the
abundant life He has in store for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father, I come to You today, giving You all that I am.
I trust that You have a plan for my good. I trust that You are opening doors
that no one can shut. I open myself to You and thank You for filling me with
You today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
