Open Wide

The neat and tidy robin’s nest with four perfect eggs nestled deep within came alive today. I heard it before I saw it. Desperate cries creating a sweet chorus. While the mother bird flew back and forth with food for those hungry mouths I got closer to inspect the new arrivals.

I couldn't help but notice how they craned their little necks high in the air and with all their might threw hungry mouths wide open.

 Wide Open.

How silly it looked but how practically it touched my heart.

“Open your wide your mouth and I will fill it”

He can’t fill a closed mouth. It’s the truth. There is an abundance of provision for each day-are we ready for it? The only way to be ready for all that Grace is to open your heart…not just a crack but wide open like these little birds. Sometimes we’re fearful to open wide because we don’t completely trust Him. We’re afraid that he’ll place something in our mouths that we might choke on…or maybe it wont taste good.

The best way to overcome this fear is to open your heart and close your eyes. 

You’ll soon find out He is a good Father and always delivers the best.

Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good...
He must have known this would be our natural tendency- to become tired…weary of sowing but seemingly never reaping. And so He gives us the Promises. The keys to endurance. If we let His promises take root they will produce patience to continue through the sowing times.

for at the proper time...
 The Father is watching intently for the ripening fruit. Bent down very closely, He eagerly awaits the formation of the grains. He desires the fruit much more then you do. And when He sees it, He is quick to bring about the promised yield!

We will reap a harvest…
It is those who have been trained not defeated by the growing process that reap the Harvest. For these people who have endured the season of sowing God enlarges the harvest. He takes our little and makes it much every time.
Be prepared with lots of containers to share with others… don’t waste the harvest when it comes! God gives abundantly more to those who desire to share with others.

If we do not give up.
If we are tempted to give up we can look to Jesus. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross. He is our perfect example.
