Midweek Morsel: Our All Powerful and Loving Provider


“‘I am the LORD your God . . . Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.’” Psalm 81:10

In the early weeks of a new year, many of us take a look at the months to come and try to picture what lies in store. Some of us jot plans on a calendar, and others take it a step further and list detailed goals for the new year. Still others, whether overwhelmed or just lacking in planning skills or motivation, prefer to take life one day at a time.

Whatever approach we take, is our vision of what God wants to do and can do in our lives big enough? Do we believe he is all powerful and that all things are possible with him? Do we know how much he longs to bless us, his dearly loved children?

In the Psalm above, God doesn’t say, “Expect a few blessings from me.” He says, “Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.” He wants to bless us. Are we waiting in expectation? Are we trusting him to be our loving Provider? Have we opened wide our mouths?

“How great is your goodness which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of all men on those who take refuge in you.” Psalm 31:19

  1. I must believe He is all powerful and that He longs to fill me with good things. Without that belief, all hope is lost. Where can I go but to God? Trusting in God’s provision for me tonight…
