Love you all, praying for you!
Praise God. PRISM is transforming how I think! I’m starting to think more like God thinks. So thankful for Daily Calls – not only do we get to share what God spoke specifically to us, we get to hear what God spoke specifically to them! That’s a double bonus! So thankful. What God shows them applies to you also, but sometimes God even shows you something else – as a result of what they share. God showed me a powerful truth from His Word – Not from my PRISM, but from an idea sparked by the testimony of my friend on our Daily Call. Psalm 81:10 - I am the LORD your God who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Wow – Not only has God delivered you, He wants to fill you! Not only has God delivered you from Egypt – from every bondage, and every sin in your life! He wants to fill you, with His truth, His power, and every blessing that flows from His throne. It starts with your mouth. Open Wide. I couldn’t help but think of the picture of a nest of baby birds with their mouths open wide, just waiting to be fed. That was the picture God used. Open wide your mouth – and I will fill it. If God said it – He will surely do it. It’s His heart for you. So thankful for His truth about the two-sided coin. Most every natural truth has a Spiritual corollary and vice versa, the other side of the coin. Not only does God want to fill your stomach, He wants to fill your heart. But the Spiritual truth of what God wants to fill your heart with – requires an open mouth, just as those little birds have to open their mouth for their stomach to be filled. What does God put in your mouth? A Word of truth – that transforms your mind, your heart, and your situation. As often is the case – there are some prerequisites. The birds that get fed, are the birds in the nest. Not the birds that fly off, or wander off. Your mouth will be full either of what you fill it with, or what God fills it with. If God is going to feed me – my body, soul, and spirit. I have to be close to him – in the nest, in His presence – so I can receive what He wants to give me. I need to open my mouth – so He can fill it, and activate my mouth with what He fills it with - with the Word He gives! Then my heart will be filled, not just my belly. God said man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Yes! He provides food for your body, (even that job you have that buys the groceries – came from Him.) But He also wants to provide food for your soul, your heart, your spirit, your life! It comes through you mouth just like food for your body. Open your Mouth - Speak the Truth that He gives you. That’s why it’s so important to do PRISM out loud. Speak with your mouth what He is saying to you! Out loud! And then speak with your mouth - what you will do that He told you. Your mouth activates your hearing, your obedience, and then your reality. You can’t just think His Word, or think what He tells you. You need to Speak it Out Loud – into your heart and into your life. You hear not just with your ears, you hear with your mouth!
But the next verse struck me as well. V 11 But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. Wow. Israel (where He rules as God) refused to let him rule as God, so He gave them over to their own ideas, their own plans – to follow their own imaginations. He said open wide your mouth and I will fill it – not just with food – but with words to say that will establish your life in my truth and my blessing. But they wouldn’t do it. They wouldn’t speak God’s Word, they spoke their own words – out of their own thoughts, out of their own heart. God is saying – you hear with your mouth, you obey with your mouth first! If you remain in me, if you stay in my presence, I will give you words that will establish the permanence of my blessing in your life. God said I’ll not only fill your belly, I’ll fill your mouth, and your mind, and your heart and your soul with my abundant blessing – and it will be made manifest in the physical. When God spoke to them, did the people of Israel say – “Nope, I’m not gonna listen to God. I’m gonna disobey." No, that’s not how it happens. They just didn’t open their mouths. They heard what He said, but they didn’t hear with their mouth. They didn’t open their mouth to activate His Word in their life – to commit themselves to it. Because their thoughts and their mouths were occupied with other things – and eventually they were stuck with the emptiness of their own pursuits.
Praying for you – that your mouth will always be wide open! That you would hear with your mouth! Speaking the words that He fills it with! That you would always choose His presence, where He can fill your mouth – to release His blessing, His wisdom, His power, His deliverance, and the Abundance of His Good into your life - so you will prosper in every way - no matter what situation or season you are in. Open Wide your mouth, and I will fill it. What a promise! That means as you are speaking His Word - He will give you more. As your mouth is open - already speaking what He said - He'll give you more! Praying that you will take Him at His Word, so His Word can take you to places you have never dreamed.
Love you all,
