TOPIC: CLAY IN THE HAND OF THE POTTER
TEXT: ISAIAH 64:6-9
MEMORY VERSE: “This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise” (ISAIAH 43:21).
Pottery is the art of forming vessels and objects with clay and other ceramic materials, which are fired at high temperature to give them a hard, durable form.
God is pictured as The Potter and all men as clay in His hand. As clay in God's hand, we must surrender to Him to do what He desires with our lives. We are free moral agents, therefore, God will only do with us what we allow Him to do. Though He's Almighty and willing to show forth His praise and glory in our lives, yet, we must allow Him to work in us (Isaiah 43:21).
God can transform nonentities into useful vessels, irrespective of their spiritual condition. Moses felt unqualified when God called him. He was not eloquent in speech, but became a mighty instrument through whom millions were delivered from the Egyptian captivity when he surrendered himself to the plan of God.
God will use people who completely surrender to Him! Sinners must surrender to Him for salvation. Believers must consecrate all to Him so that He can use them for His glory.
QUOTE: Surrender to Him to do what He desires.
CHALLENGE: God will use people who surrender to Him.
PRAYER: Lord, I surrender. Make me a vessel of honour.
