Deuteronomy 29:29 NKJV
[29] “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Good Morning:
It is funny how we humans think we know it all. When you look at history books and science textbooks, the writers and scholars think they have it all figure out. Scientists are still puzzled and always trying to figure out the origin of the universe. Well, they will never figure it out be cause there are secrets of the Lord that men will never know.

The Bible compares us to lumps of clay and God is the Potter. The clay can never be compared as an equal to the potter. The potter’s hand knows how to form us, shape us, mix water into the clay when it is drying out so it becomes pliable again. The potter’s hand spins us on the wheel to make sure we are balanced. The potter puts us in the fire to burn away the impurities and hardens us so that it can hold water to pour out for others. All that time, the Potter is in control and the clay can never say, “hey, I don’t want to be a pitcher, I wanted to be a cup or bowl.” The potter does as He pleases and knows what is best of the clay and deems good to Him.

Likewise, we need to yield to what God has for our lives. We need to be open to God forming us and shaping us into what He knows is best for our lives. There will be times he mixes water into us to make us more pliable, softening our hearts for other people. There will be times when we are put on the potter’s wheel and get spun to make us balanced and He will draw us up into a shape that is able to be useful to Him. And finally, there will be times when he puts us in the fire to harden us so that we can hold water and be able to pour blessings out to other people.

We as followers of Christ, need to be open to what The Potter has for our lives. Let’s never pretend to try to be a potter ourselves, whom we could never be. Let us all put our lives into the Potter’s hands so that He will use us for His perfect will and form us into the shape that He deems best for us.

I love you and am praying for you today!

Isaiah 29:15-16 CSB
[15] Woe to those who go to great lengths to hide their plans from the LORD. They do their works in the dark, and say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?” [16] You have turned things around, as if the potter were the same as the clay. How can what is made say about its maker, “He didn’t make me”? How can what is formed say about the one who formed it, “He doesn’t understand what he’s doing”?
