“I am the Lord your God who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth, and I will fill it!” Psalm 81:10

Our great privilege is to have God for our God:
to know Him,
love Him,
adore Him,
and trust in Him.

If God is ours, then all must be well.

If God has delivered us from . . .
the Egypt of this world,
power of sin, and
tyranny of Satan,
then He is our God indeed.

He says,
“I am Jehovah, the compassionate God . . .
who sympathizes with My people in their sorrows,
counts their tears,
feels their groans, and
records their prayers.”

“I am Jehovah, the God of power . . .
who delivered Israel from Egyptian bondage,
whose strength is as infinite as My nature,
for whom nothing is too hard.”

“I am Jehovah, the God of love . . .
whose resources are boundless,
whose pity is tender, and
who never fails or forsakes those who trust in Him.”

“I am Jehovah, your God . . .

  pledged to you by promise,
engaged for you by covenant,
and bound to you by oath!

As I am your God . . .
to Me,
in Me,
from Me.”

“Open your mouth wide!” That is,Ask boldly
Ask LARGELY–ask for great, numerous, and costly blessings!
Do not be afraid of asking for too much!
My heart is large,
love is great,
My wealth is unbounded!

Ask BOLDLY–do not be afraid, but come boldly to My throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Ask FREQUENTLY–I am always ready to give! I am never weary of listening to your prayers. Come whenever you are in need, I rejoice to do you good. No parent ever delighted to give to a darling child, as I delight to give to you! Therefore ask and receive, that your joy may be full.

“Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it!” That is, “I have the very blessings which you need. They are from Me; they are for you! I have the disposition to give! Do not doubt My benevolence, for this grieves My heart. I give you My word, that I will bestow My favors upon you freely, plentifully, and frequently!
My Word is plain, read it;
it is faithful, trust it;
honest, plead it;
sure, expect the fulfillment of it.
I will do exceeding abundantly above all that you ask or think!”

“I am the Lord your God who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth, and I will fill it!” Psalm 81:10
