In the Potter’s Hands

And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand. (Isaiah 64:8 nlt)

The Greeks believed in many gods, thinking they would give them wisdom or direction. Then when the Romans conquered Greece, they effectively absorbed its culture and made it their own. The problem is these gods were nonexistent.

As Christians, we want to know the will of God. But is that even possible? Can God’s will be known? Can God speak to us today? Or, are we just searching in vain, like the ancient Greeks and Romans looking into the faces of their various deities?

No, we aren’t. Christianity is Christ taking residence in our hearts. Jesus said, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15nkjv).

God wants to speak to us today. He has a plan and a purpose for our lives, and He wants to reveal His will for our lives. So how do we know the will of God? We find an interesting passage in Jeremiah 18: “The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, ‘Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.’ So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over” (verses 1–4 nlt).

The Bible is basically saying that God is like a potter and we are like clay. God is the potter who wants to make us after His plan and purpose. And if we don’t yield to the plan and purpose of God, then we’ll be settling for something less.
