Potter and clay (Isaiah 64:8)

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Isaiah 63-64 & Psalm 107 & John 2)

“Yet, O Lord, you are our Father.  We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand.”  Isaiah 64:8

What lessons are there for me in this Scripture?

I am not in charge.

I am a lump of clay that God, the potter, will have His way with.

Within His hands I can become something that pleases Him.  Something that reflects the greatness of the potter.

I must be perpetually surrendering to Him.

I must beg Him to keep removing my unshapely features.  Features that can cause others to miss the Creator.

I have so much to learn about this potter/clay relationship. I often choose to venture out on my own. What a fool!  The clay has no reason to wander away from the potter.

I want the Potter’s Hands on me.  I want to feel the comfort of His presence.

“O Lord, You are the potter, I am the clay.”
