God's grace.

"And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." II Corinthians 12:9

God is always in our path shining His grace through those dark and desperate areas of our life.

Do we cling to His joy?

Do we try to avoid that inevitable confrontation with our own emptiness?

Do we keep pressing on?

It is not a pretty picture as we are on the Potters wheel and all messed up.

It is on that wheel as He spins it we are shaped and molded just as He wants.

It is on that wheel where He takes His times and invests everything that we need.

It is here that we grow into a beautiful vessel that has been formed by the skilful Potter.

The vessel will grow under His fashioning, into the vessel He intends it to be.

It is no longer that lump of clay in which He started from, but a beautiful vessel into which He can pour of Himself.

The clay becomes a vessel of honor to His honor and fit for His use!

It is the same way with our soul.

Our soul is abandoned to the working of the Heavenly Potter.

Our soul is made into a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and ready for the Master's use.

It is when we put ourselves wholly and absolutely into His hands, that now He can begin to work.

What you have entrusted Him to do, may be different from your way of doing things.

Don't let your vessel become marred for lack of understanding.

The maturity of a Christian is not an overnight experience.

The mature Christian is from the work of God's Holy Spirit.

It is by the Holy Spirit's energizing and transforming power that will cause us to grow up in Christ.

We can not reach this maturity any other way than by yielding up all ourselves to His mighty working.

Our part is trusting in Him.

It is His to accomplish the end result.

When we fail not to do our part, He shall never fail to do His!

God's works are perfect in every stage of growth!

If we do not put our lump of clay into His hands, God can not make a beautiful vessel unto His honor.

Put yourself into His hands today.

Truly, there is no One, like God.

We need not accomplish our vision, but that vision of God.

When we are on our own we are separated from Christ.

"Wherefore remember, that ye being in time passed Gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision in the flesh made by hands;" Ephesians 2:12

Every breath we take affirms that we are in complete dependence of an infinite and Soverign God.

He takes thought of us!

He blesses us!

"But by the grace of God I am what I am: and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me." I Corinthians 15:10

There is nowhere than in His magnificent greatness, and in all of our inadequacies do we collide than in the cross of Christ.

We come to Calvary with the only thing in our hands but sin that would bind our soul to an eternity in hell.

It is through Christ's precious gift of atonement, seeing that once and for all that everything we are, all that we have, all that we ever hope to be comes from Him.

O Lord, who am I that you have brought me this far?

"Then went king David in, and sat before the Lord, and he said, "Who am I, O Lord God? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?" "Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears."II Samuel 7:18, 22
