Wednesday Word 8.14.19

Isaiah 64:8 New International Version
Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
    We are the clay, you are the potter;
    we are all the work of your hand.

I saw a sign once that said “God doesn’t make junk.” When we think about the Great Creator, it would serve us well to remember that saying. You and I were made for this moment in this time by a design so magnificent, so intricate, so massive that we can’t begin to comprehend its scale. What purpose we are to serve is the task set before each one of us.

When we try to master our own destiny and navigate this life according to our own roadmap and master plan, we can get mighty lost. This presents a dilemma in our culture. Self-reliance and independence are so highly valued. It is entirely possible to create your own domain and maybe even live a decent life. But there will always be something missing, I guarantee it. There will always be something more that you cannot quite get a hold of, can’t quite fulfill. It is that connection with your Maker. It is having the proper perspective about that relationship.

Genesis 2:7 tells us, “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” We were literally molded from the dust, from the clay of the earth. We must remember to whom we owe our very existence…something to pray about.
