Potter and the Clay
July 25, 2023
Perhaps people reject the reality that God made the heavens and the Earth and everything in them, including us, and they claim the Big Bang & Evolution as their Morning Star. Does it make sense that mindless chaos self-initiated and intelligently formed a sensible and orderly reality? Good luck with that when your ticket is punched and your train leaves the station!
You have turned things upside down, as if the potter were regarded as clay. Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, “He did not make me”? Can the pottery say of the potter, “He has no understanding”? — Isaiah 29:16, Berean Study Bible
God understands things perfectly well… “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” It’s His world and we’re living in it! Be grateful and appreciate the fact that “He is patient with [us], not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only [natural born] Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” — Isaiah 29:16 & John 3:16
Think about it. Do you feel that you are standing on solid ground, or do you have a bit of a sinking feeling. You can know for sure if you earnestly want to know. If you don’t really care, well, what do you expect God to do?
Jesus said, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
