Even though He plummeted the vessel to its demise, He knew what was best for the little pot for He had a great plan and purpose for it.
But now, O LORD, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8
We are all broken and in need of our Potter because our brokenness comes in varying forms:
- A painful and disappointing marriage. (or singleness)
- Difficult or severed relationships.
- Financial hardships.
- Living with limitations.
- A fearful diagnosis.
Through the disappointments, hurting, and pain, He ever so gently fashioned the vessel back together again, but this time the vessel took on a new shape; one better than before.
He filled it with His might and power and sent it on it’s way.
Calling out, “My grace is all you need, He said. And My power works best in weakness.”
The little vessel stood, for there was work for it to do.
One last thing He said,
Pour into others as I have poured into you.
Live a poured out life for the Master,
