You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, “He did not make me?” Can the pot say of the potter, “He knows nothing?” —ISAIAH 29:16, NIV
God is the only one who truly knows us. Even in as much as we say we know ourselves how often do we glance over our past and say “how did I end up here” ?
A lot of times we ask in amazement and joy! For example, that I am doing art now and design for a living! I NEVER saw that coming, and yet each day I feel so blessed to be doing something I NEVER dreamed I would be and feel SO surrounded by God’s resounding “YES” as I do it.
And still there are other times, when a thought or an action stands up in our day, as an unexpected ugliness and screams. We must in those times run to our father who knows us completely. Ask him, “what is this?”, “where did it come from?”, “what are You showing me in this?”
May we be the pliable clay.
