The Lord is our Potter. He carefully forms us and shapes us according to the plan He has for us. He knows the finished product will be just what He wants us to be. He slowly and gently shapes us to be effective vessels in His storehouse.
God is the potter. He is the God Who molds us. (Jehovah Makkah) He is a hands-on God Who loves us and is deeply involved in the process of making us all we can be. He sees us not only as we are, but He sees us as we can and will be if we are willing to submit to His molding. His desire is not to harm us but to shape us into His child. He delights in us and wants only the best for us. While we may not understand why we need to endure the pain and confusion of the molding and the heat of the kiln, He is with us every step of the way. Just as He walked in the fiery furnace in Babylon, He walks through the fire with us. We will never be alone. He is with us and loves us with a sacrificial love beyond what anything we can comprehend.
