“We are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand” (Isaiah 64:8)
The potter has every right to make whatever the potter desires. So God has every right to shape and make us into whatever God desires.
This shaping and making is not a singular event that has a beginning and end but is an on-going process. As long as we are breathing God is at work to shape and make us into being more effective at demonstrating God’s love, grace, hope, and peace to the people around us.
Listen to what God tells us through the prophet Jeremiah:
“The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: ‘Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.’ So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him” (Jeremiah 18:1-4).
God is at work today. God may be doing things differently than we had hoped, but that is God’s prerogative. God is currently working to shape and mold you into exactly what God desires for you, and because of God’s work the world will be a better place through a changed you and me.
How is God shaping and molding you today? Spend a few moments thinking about how God is at work and agree to join God in what God wants to do in and through you.
Have a great day knowing God is molding and shaping you.
