Jesus is the Way

LISTEN, BECAUSE GOD WANTS TO SPEAK
THROUGH YOUR OWN MOUTH!

 

Ex 4:10-12 NKJV

Then Moses said to the LORD, "O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue."  So the LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth ? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the LORD? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say."

 

One day I read a friend's dream where she saw me as a public speaker. I said to myself, “Gee I sure hope it’s not literal!" I was shy and the idea to stretch outside of writing was too much.

I was busy thinking how I’m not a public speaker and going on and on about it in my thoughts. Then that night with anointed hands I turned to a story in a devotional entitled, "Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it." It was about a coffee machine that wouldn’t grind the last 3 or 4 beans out of the machine, so she could pour her own in and grind. No matter what, she couldn’t get it to work.

When the clerk came to help her, he tried the same things, and then finally put a bag under the spout. The machine had an electric eye and wouldn’t grind beans unless a bag was under the spout! The point of the parable is that the Lord doesn’t fill your mouth until you are under His spout for Him to pour His Word out.

Ps 81:10 NKJV
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

If you suffer from fear of public speaking, but you are willing and just don’t know how to overcome this.... remember to put yourself under God’s anointed spout!  Ask Him to anoint your mouth, your mind and words with His quickening power and that He will use them for His glory and purpose.

 

When you are under His anointing, the Words flow and if you forget in the middle of a spot, simply ask Him where you are!  I have often had the “problem” of going far and wide to cover details and background to something I am wanting to say. This form of story telling runs on both sides of my family so I was pretty much destined to be long winded in telling the day’s course. 

 

In the process of sharing with people, sometimes I get lost as to the point I am trying to make.  I felt a lot of condemnation about this, until one day the Lord told me that He had a purpose for every rabbit trail I took, and that He quickened the ears of those who needed to go there with me.  I was grateful and decided that no matter where I go, God will keep the final goal exactly where He wants it. 

John 14:26-28 NKJV
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
