He Feeds Us

I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalms 81:10 (KJV)

Walker looks like a baby bird when his cereal and fruit or vegetable comes his way. He opens his mouth as wide as he can, then receives the nourishment with great glee! The food Walker’s sweet mother puts on the spoon and into his mouth gives to Walker vitamns, minerals, proteins, and whatever is needed for him to grow to be healthy and strong.

What an explanation of the picture God gives us through the Psalmist Asaph in Ps 81:10! When we open our mouth, God will fill it! He tells us again and again how he will nourish us with what we need to grow strong in Him.

If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.John 7:37 (KJV),

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.Matt 5:6 (KJV),

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.Psalms 34:8 (KJV),

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.Rev 21:6 (KJV)

I am afraid that many times we keep our mouths closed to what God has “on the spoon.” We think we don’t like the “food” He is offering. We miss the nourishment He means for us to gain in our knowledge of Him and of His ways because we turn our face and close our lips.

I can remember trying to get my children to try a new food. I would say, “You don’t know if you like it or not until you try it.” or “It’s good for you. Just try it.” I can see this picture with our Heavenly Father with spiritual food that I refuse to try. My prayer is that you and I will open our mouths wide to let Him fill us!!
