The Master's Hand

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:27 pm

Humans love change
Yet they resist it.
There are times of testing
And then abandonment
Pottery after being cast on the wheel
Being thrown over again
Finally the clay can be shaped.
Once done without fault
It is put on the shelf to dry
It stays there till it is bone dry
Then it is glazed and loaded
Fired in a kiln furnace.
Anything left is burned out of it
In the fire of affliction.
Humans are like molded clay
To the Master's touch
He sets us aside to die to self
Then he glazes us and fires us
To remove the last speck
Of self will till final surrender.
Out comes a beautiful vessel
One used for honor.
Let us be vessels of honor
Not those of dishonor
Know when you are on that shelf
You feel abandoned and alone,
You are in the Master's hand.

Stay on the wheel

He takes us from glory to glory

2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Jeremiah 18:1-3 (King James Version)

Jeremiah 18
1The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

2Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

3Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
