Let GOD be the potter

Isaiah 64:8  But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.

Time and again, we hear about the Lord being the potter and we must be the clay in the Master’s hand, allowing Him to mold and shape us – It is not easy being molded or shaped. The most difficult time for the clay is when it is placed in the furnace to perfect its shape and soundness.

Many times we are like this, God places us in situations that makes us feel we are in fire – and we wonder what is the reason or purpose. According to the scriptures, it is for our own perfection, and so that God may be glorified in us by our perfection in what we do and say.

If you feel you are in a furnace these days and everything around you seems to be causing heat – it’s because God is burning out the dross in you, he wants only perfect jars – jars that will hold His glory, His grace, His love, His mercy.

Stay strong in the furnace – God is perfecting you.

Prayer:

Almighty God, thank You for molding and shaping me into the person You created me to be. I continue to press forward and look to You for my direction as You are my God and in You, I trust. You, oh Lord, are glorified in everything I do. Cleanse my heart, Father, of everything that is not of You and use me for Your purpose.

Thank You also for the situations You have brought me out from; situations which have caused me pain and frustration but made me stronger in the end. Each day I live, Lord, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will guide my path. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
