TOPIC: In the Potter’s Hands
Isaiah 45:9, NLT – “What sorrow awaits those who argue with their Creator. Does a clay pot argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with the one who shapes it, saying, ‘Stop, you’re doing it wrong!'”
Joel Osteen 17 November 2021 Daily Devotional Message
The Scripture says that God is the potter and we are the clay. The potter takes a lump of clay and spins it on his wheel. The clay could say, “I’m tired of going in circles. Let me off this wheel.” The clay doesn’t realize that while it’s spinning, the potter is molding it. It’s rising up from a lump of clay into a beautiful vase. After it has gone through the process, it would tell you, “I didn’t like the spinning, but without it I wouldn’t be what I am.”
You may feel like you’re spinning today. You’re doing the same thing over and over and don’t see much progress. But when it feels like you’re going in circles, something is happening that you can’t see. You’re coming up higher. God is molding your character. It may seem routine, but when you’re faithful where you are, when you have a song of praise when you could be complaining, you’re rising higher. Trust Him when you’re spinning. Trust Him when you’re in the routine.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You that my life is in Your hands, and You are shaping my life like a potter—not just my dreams and goals, but my character. Thank You that You are working in the routine to mold my life into Your image. I trust You whether I’m seeing progress or not. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
