We Are the Work of His Hand.

BECAUSE OF MY FAITH

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 New King James Version

As Christians we are constantly put on the potters wheel. We are the work of His hand.

Now from my experience first you must go through the furnace of affliction and then the potters wheel.

 

The furnace of affliction is the most difficult and painful time of a Christians life. This is where Jehovah allows circumstances to happen that will burn off your bad attributes.

For me it was stubbornness, unforgiveness and spitefulness. It was a slow process that took two years.

 

Once this was accomplished then and only then was I put on the potters wheel. It is a process that lasts a lifetime.

 

Sometimes with clay there are parts of it that are very hard and must be pounded to make it soft and moldable.

 

So too it is with us.

Here are times when we are stubborn and difficult. In those times the Lord will allow difficult times to come to us to pound out that stubbornness and make us moldable again.

“We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.” John Stott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our maker) for the painful experience of burning off the dross. Thank you for sticking with it in molding this lumpy piece of clay into the vessel You desire me to be. I extoll You in the name of the greatest molder of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
