Our Potter’s Hands…..

Potter 1

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.

flame 9

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.”

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 5

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.

“Do you know how Pearls are made ?”

Pearl by the SeaI 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.

  1. Thank you for inspiring me every time and thank you for telling me there is no comment section in my last post. I was still using the classic dashboard, not realizing wordpress made revisions so I do need to use the new one. Found the problem and fixed it, Thanks. God bless.

    • That’s strange Island Traveler, I always use the Classic dashboard, I don’t like the new one, why fix something that works but you were still able to comment so not sure what you mean. Do they change the settings later so people can’t comment, if so that is an invasion of our rights, we are the ones who decide who comments or even if people can comment, not them, they may own the Blogs but we are paying for Upgrades which means we are renting them and so have privacy rights under the law.

      But I’m not sure if this still applies when we are not paying for Upgrades because this means we have no control, although they don’t tell you when we join up or when we are using the Dashboard to regulate our settings, that they can be changed later by them without our permission, perhaps you need to ask them about this.

      Blessings – Anne

    What a wonderful picture the Potter portrays, taking a useless lump of clay and turning it into something beautiful and worthwhile. Love the song by Darlene Zschech, The Potters Hand , where she says ” Teach me ,mould me use me ,fill me, I give my life to the Potters Hand.. ” I guess it says says it all for each of us.

    Blessings

    • Yes I posted about the Pearls a few times Barb, I think it’s wonderful that no matter what irritation we encounter in life, God can make it work for good.

      I’m sure you are learning my friend, you are no longer in diapers and your walking not crawling, keep aiming to be perfected in Love and Seek, Ask and Knock just like Jesus asks us to do.

          My Inbox is full as my Supplier was in trouble because of the fires in Perth so I had no Internet most of yesterday, it only connected this morning, I have a lot of catching up to do but with it being Ron’s Birthday Party today I won’t have a lot of time but hope to clear most of it tonight.

          Blessings- Anne
