... Does clay talk back to the potter: ‘What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’
Would a sperm say to a father, ‘Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?’
Or a fetus to a mother, ‘Why have you cooped me up in this belly?’ (Isa 45:8)
As the enemy tries his best to disrupt our familial relationships. Let's not lose hope in his pitiable strategy ... Instead, let's lift up our hearts in faithful prayer to the One who is the Master of all hearts.
Remember - just as he turned the great Apostle Paul around from being a man mired in hatred for anything and anyone he could not control to one who willingly relinquished control out of love for God, so can he do it for those who like Paul, are behaving disgracefully, to being GOD's most noteworthy and productive children.
And as the Potter’s Wheel beckons ALL OF US, and even as Papà’s loving hands lift us up (and we shrink away with so many excuses as to make Him smile). Nonetheless, if we open our ears we'll be comforted by His loving shushing, and we'll finally emerge to see His loving smile of acceptance (as well as all the mess of our broken lives on His terribly wounded hands …)!
