Loved by The Potter…….

Potter 1What a wonderful picture the Potter portrays, taking a useless lump of clay and turning it into something beautiful and worthwhile.

 God is our Loving, Compassionate and Caring Potter, as we take the Scripture below to heart, we see God tells us about the Fire that we will encounter in life,  He is The Potter and He molds and shapes us tenderly in Love, He does not put us into a blazing fire causing us to suffer but He knows we will be afflicted so He keeps it from consuming us and He gives us strength to endure  preventing  us from falling to pieces and by His indwelling presence, Jesus lives His life in us, He is The Rock so we are set firm Eternally.

Fire10Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

When Hardships invade our lives, or we are Tempted, it is not God who causes or allows them as we see confirmed in the Scriptures below but He knows we will experience Trouble in our lives and as we turn our burdens over to Him, He strengthens us and our Faith is shown to be real because it’s His strength that keeps us strong.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

1 Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

James 1:12-14 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that Love Him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
.

Potter.

Our Loving Potter shapes and molds us as we choose to walk in The Fruit of the Spirit instead of doing what is evil and the The Holy Spirit empowers us so we can walk in Love and Holiness and this puts our Carnal flesh to death good and evil cannot co- exist and when we come close to God the Devil flees, we are a foul smell to him. We never give up but instead we continue to persevere regardless of the problems as we aim to be perfected in Love, rejoicing not for the suffering and pain but because whatever we are going through in Life God is with us and works it all out for good…

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

I shared this amazing Truth on another Post (see link below)  it encourages me to look up and not give up in the Trials that Satan and life brings and to have full assurance and Trust that God is Love and Loves us greatly in the good and bad times.

    As we go through our trials, there are several verses that comes to mind: 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NCV) “The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it.”

    Another passage: 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 (NCV) “I begged the Lord three times to take this problem away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you.” So I am very happy to brag about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can live in me.”

    Knowing that God is always with me, and that He only allows what is for my best to come to me — makes me so grateful that He chooses to use those tough things to be used as a platform for Christ to be magnified … makes me so very full of peace and joy in spite of the painful, difficult times with which He entrusts me.

    Excellent blog, dear Sister Anne.

    Love in Christ,
    Carolyn ❤

    • Thank you Carolyn for sharing and yes God knows we will be tempted but He does not willingly allow evil , He tolerates it, to stop all evil now He would have to end the World but He is patient, it’s not His will anyone perishes, He knows those who are His and some have still not come to heart repentance only head acknowledgement.

      Satan has a right to put us to the test as He did Jesus, Abraham, Job, Paul etc but God will give us Strength to endure and a way out, as we come close to Him in Holiness, the Devil flees.

      Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

      Paul’s thorn was His Carnal pride, God cannot heal those who hold onto sin, Paul gave thanks because his thorn sent by Satan reminded him that his Carnal flesh had to be put to death which he shared about his battle with in Romans 7 but than told us how to do this in (Romans 8 :1 &12-15- Romans 6 – Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26)

      Wonderfully as you shared, God does work everything for good in our lives, which means as we are conformed into the image of Jesus, He is glorified in us because we show His Love and yes as you also said He is with us even in the tough times, I just love the Scripture below that He gave me during the Storms in my life.

      Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    • Dear Island Traveler, God will always make sure you are assured of His Love because you Love Him and seek Him, it may not be through me He does this, it may be through a Sunset or the look in your Wife or Sons eyes or another Bloggers message that says He Loves you and you will feel it in your heart. God is everywhere but very close to His much Loved Children those He knows are His.

      I have been greatly blessed dear friend in knowing you because through your words of Love as my Brother in Christ Jesus, I have been more than once uplifted when I needed it the most. A few times I have wanted to run away but God sent you and so I stayed, Thank you for you faithfulness to share from your heart.

      Christian Love Always – Anne
