THE POTTER’S HANDS

“So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.”

(Jeremiah 18:3-4)

Do you know you are a work of art? God never created failure. God never created pain. God never created fear.  Are you ready to be the person God created you to be? You were created to make a difference in your world and what causes you to make a difference is within you. Ask the Producer and He will tell you what it takes to produce life. Ask the Potter and He will tell you the value of the process.

God has a purpose for every stage of your life, but many have changed the history of their lives because of their inability to see beyond their immediate situation. Never doubt God’s purpose for your life. When trouble comes, keep calm and be determined. You are safe in God’s strong hands.

The Hand that formed you from the dust

Is the Hand that lights the fire to melt you

Is the same Hand that rebuilds you stone by stone

And that fills you up anew.

When we lift up our hands to the Lord, the Potter’s hands have room to work. Do God’s hands have room to work in your life? The Potter cannot force you; you have to be willing to be melted, remoulded and filled before you can be suitable for His purpose. Are you willing to submit? What stage are you in? Are you being melted? Are you being remoulded? Are you being filled for His glory? “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfil his good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13) Whatever stage you are in, your heart is the workshop, so trust that you are in the Potter’s hands.

 

THE COST THE VALUE

“It is the cost of what you have given up for God that makes His relationship so valuable to you. If you examine your life, you will know that if you fight for something, you will not want to lose it.”

THE POWER OF SURRENDER

“Jesus was capable of coming down from the Cross unhurt but He knew that sometimes we have to do what we hate to create something we love. He knew there is great power in surrender.”

EYES TO SEE

“Unless our spiritual eyes are opened, like the religious rulers of the day, we will continue to serve a god we do not know. How can Jesus be honored when we are looking by sight and hearing Him with our ears? Only faith pleases Him.”
