Surrender As Clay

Jeremiah 18:6    Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand …

Isaiah 45:8-12 AMP    Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it.
… Woe to him who strives with His Maker!–a worthless piece of broken pottery among other pieces equally worthless [and yet presuming to strive with His Maker]! Shall the clay say to Him who fashions it, What do You think You are making? or, Your work has no handles?
… Woe to him [who complains against his parents that they have begotten him] who says to a father, What are you begetting? or to a woman, With what are you in travail?
… Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Would you question Me about things to come concerning My children, and concerning the work of My hands [would you] command Me?
… I made the earth and created man upon it. I, with My hands, stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host.

Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for Him. In Hebrew, “Be silent in God, and let Him mould thee.” Keep still, and He will mould thee to the right shape.
… Martin Luther

Surrender completely to the Sovereign Lord
… who holds all in His mighty hands. –Job 12:10

Let Him have His way; as the Potter with the clay.

Clay

 

This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength” … –Isa 30:15

Place yourself completely in the hands of the Sovereign LORD
Be crucified with Christ –Gal 2:20-21
Turn to Him
Wait on Him
Let your striving cease
Rest in quietness and trust in the palm of His hand.

He will mould you
Fill you
And transform you into the right shape.

Isaiah 64:8    But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and You are our potter; we are all the work of Your hand.

Philippians 3:20-21    Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.

We are the clay in the Master Potter’s hand

He is moulding us –
But remember for clay to be useful it must go through the fire – then it becomes a beautiful masterpiece!

Lord, help us surrender as clay to be moulded, shaped and brought through the fire by Your hand – for You are the Master Potter and we are the clay.
