Why “Shaped by the Potter’s Hands”

Why is the blog called Shaped by the Potter’s Hands.  In Jeremiah 18:6 the Lord tells Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house and then says, “… Behold as the clay is in the potter’s hands, so are ye in mine hand ….”  and in Isaiah 64:8, “… O Lord, thou are our father; we are the clay and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hands.”  I feel that God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit in His benevolent mercy is the potter who is shaping us and changing us everyday.  As Christians we believe we are changed from the time that we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior that we also accept the shaping and molding of the Holy Spirit (as we continue to grow) we allow Him to shape us.
In Isaiah Jesus says can I not shape my people as the potter’s hands shapes the clay.  Just as man was created from the dust of the earth, we are clay to be molded into beautiful useful pottery.  As Believer’s we are constantly in a state of flux and should be aware that we are changing and hopefully improving in our relationship with God and His other creations. 

 When we accept Christ we climb onto the potter’s wheel and wait on the potter to begin the work.  As the wheel turns, you feel yourself changing shape into the useful vessel that you are meant to be.  Be thankful for the blessing and the and the work involved in shaping and molding you into a solid, beautiful  vessel that He can use in Jesus’ name.
