Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)
This verse presents a magnificent picture when you take the time to think about it. Sure a clump of clay is just a clump of clay, until the potter goes to work on it. Imagine what the Grand Canyon would have looked like without God going to work on it. He designed every inch. Or think of Niagara Falls, a splendid display of water gushing in all it’s glory. What about the Great Barrier Reef?
There are countless things on this earth that we are able to enjoy the workmanship of because God took the time to care about the details. Just as He takes care of the details in every marvelous landscape your eyes behold, so also He is taking care of the details of your life.
You are a product of the Master’s hands. He has plans for you that far exceed what you can imagine. So close your eyes and picture the most beautiful thing you have ever seen, than times it by a million and know that’s what God is creating out of your life on His potter’s wheel!
Lord, please help me to surrender to the work of Your hands. May I be moldable and remember that You are designing a masterpiece out of my life. Please help me to always remember I’m not a product of my own design, I am Yours. Your child! The one You love! I entrust myself to You!
Longing to be clay on the Potter’s hands,
