What does Ezekiel 3:2 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 3:2

So I opened my mouth
To take in the roll, and eat it; he was not disobedient to the heavenly vision; he did all that he could towards eating it, but was not sufficient of himself; and therefore it follows: and he caused me to eat that roll;
he, the Lord, put it into his mouth, caused him to eat it, and tilled him with it, according to his promise, ( Psalms 81:10 ) . The efficacy and sufficiency to think of good things, to meditate upon them, receive and digest them, are of God; it is he that makes men prophets, and able ministers. The Targum is,

``and I inclined my soul, and he taught me (or made me wise "with") what was written in this roll.''
