We are the clay, and thou our potter

Isaiah 64:8 “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.” This beautiful verse reminds me that we work so hard on this earth to be someone were not. We want to be seen by others as successful, admired for our looks, heralded for our accomplishments. But the reality is that God is our Father, and he is the potter of our lives. God has molded us to be his child, to fulfill God’s wishes and walk in the path of his Son, Jesus Christ.

We are each an individual work of art by God, and we each have our own special powers and journey’s on this earth leading to eternal salvation and a place in heaven. Sometimes our earthly lives become a distraction, and we distance ourselves from God. But God is forgiving and he has a way to bring us back, back to the original molding that our Father had formed us to be.

Why can’t we just become the masterpiece that God had intended? Because if we had no challenges or trials, or tribulations, how would we ever understand God’s power, his generosity, his ability to manifest, to perform miracles, to heal, to bring peace, joy and love into your life. How would we be able to speak to others about these powers if we didn’t experience them ourselves.

I am speaking for myself, that I have witnessed all of the aforementioned list of God’s power. I am writing this article as a testimony to God Almighty, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, that they have in fact performed miracles in my life, shown great compassion and mercy, brought me peace, joy and love to my life that I would not have otherwise realized. And I did not deserve any of this favorable treatment, based on the way I conducted myself for most of my earthly life.

My hope is that someone reads this article and knows there is truly a God, his son Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, and died on a cross to pay for our sins. And the Holy Spirit will come inside your heart if you pray hard enough and truly seek forgiveness and redemption.

A good place to start is a prayer. Matthew 6: 9-13 Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

If you don’t know what to say when you pray, give thanks and say the Lords Prayer.

Amen
