Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 30th September

Needs to Open Our Mouths
 
Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. (Psalm 81:10)

What an encouragement to pray! The Lord would have us request great blessings. When a man is earnest he opens his mouth wide, and our text urges us to be fervent in our supplications.

Yet it also means that we may make bold with God and ask many and large blessings at His hands. Read the whole verse, and see the argument: “I am the LORD, thy God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Because the Lord has given us so much, He invites us to ask for more, yea, to expect more.

See how the little birds in their nests seem to be all mouth when the mother comes to feed them. Let it be the same with us. God is ready to fill us if we are only ready to be filled. The opened mouth shall be filled by the Lord Himself. So be it unto us, O Lord, this day.
