God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 81
YOUR FATHER WANTS TO FILL YOU UP
There shall be no strange god among you; you shall not bow down to a foreign god. I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. (Psalm 81:9-10)
Do you ever see God prohibiting things and feel like He’s holding you back or holding out on you? Here’s good news. Nothing could be further from the truth!
God’s prohibitions are for your protection, and He knows what will truly satisfy you and what will leave you dry. He longs for you to turn your eyes from counterfeit Christs that can never save, and open yourself up to the fullness of His grace.
Even today, He’s calling to you, “Let go of your fear and foolishness and let Me be the only source to which you look for help.” Listen to Him!
You see, your Father wants to fill you up.
