I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10KJV
I was thinking about the above verse while in church this morning. I once heard evangelist Curtis Hutson preach on this very verse. He said one of the biggest problems is that there are too many "sucker mouth Christians."
I've also noticed quite a few of my friends write about needs they have, waiting for the government to improve things. Problem is if we don't put our faith in God to guide the leaders and supply us our needs, then all the rhetoric we hear from our political leaders will be hot air and will not solve much of anything in the long run.
The same Higher Power that my recovery blogger friends depend on to help them with their day by day living can help those in authority, and those are people we are commanded to pray for.
Pray with a childlike faith and a wide open mouth. God is willing to supply your needs in some way. Chances are that it won't be a check from the Publisher's Clearing House, but it might be overtime at work, or even a new job that pays better than the one you have. Give your needs to God and he will fill it in His time.
Cliff Note: I normally write these type post on my "faith based" blog, Seek Him First. I just felt a leading to post this one here.
