Mouth Open Wide

Scriptures For Meditation — Ps 81:10; Ps 71:8; Prov 18:21; Eph 3:20

In the blog post of Day 2 of our fasting and prayers, we talked about Open Gates and Open Doors being a consequence of open heavens. Today, we’ll be talking about another important component that facilitates our walking under and enjoying the blessings of open heavens in our lives — Open Mouths!

As one of my friends liked to say:

“A closed mouth is a closed destiny”!

In our first scripture reading for today (Ps 81:10), God gave an instruction which could also be said to be a challenge, to the children of Israel —He said to them:

“Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it”!

At first glance, this charge may be understood to simply mean opening of the mouth in prayer.

However, the command goes much beyond just that, as it says, to open it wide — to be bold and daring; to take the limits off our minds and off of God, and believe Him to exceed our expectations. (Eph 3:20)

As the Bible commentator Giles says:

To open the mouth wide in prayer is to pray with great freedom, to pour out the soul to God, lay open its whole case, and tell him all his mind and wants; to pray with great boldness, and with much importunity and fervency, and in full assurance of faith, pleading with great strength the promises of God, and asking in faith for much, according to them; and God may be said to fill this wide mouth of faith in prayer, when he grants the desires of the heart, gives his people what they will, even very largely and abundantly, yea, more than they can ask or think.

It could also mean that when we get to that place where having been wearied in our waiting and weakened in faith by disappointments and deferred hope, even though we have no more words to pray, we open our mouth wide in faith and allow the Holy Spirit to fill it with His words of faith.

Dear friend, the promise of God to you; His instruction for us today, is to open our our mouth – WIDE and allow Him to fill it!
