Greetings in the beautiful name of our Lord Jesus!! He is truly our greatest reward!! Don’t ever forget that He is the Potter that puts us together, we come broken to pieces but He mends us. This week we see two occurrences of ‘Breaking’ in our lives- We are broken by sin and by life’s challenges
Our text is taken from Isaiah 64: 8
But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we, are the work of Your hand. (NKJV)
Being broken by sin is typically when we become disobedient to God’s way and insist on ours, we get ourselves into situations that are ‘breakers’. God desires that we are obedient to His will so that our lives become secure in Him.
Broken by life’s challenges – sometimes we become victims of our circumstances- rape, physical abuse, poverty, theft, betrayal, death of a loved one, etc. and these shape our outlook on life, depending on the extent of the damage, the situations can leave us so broken and battered, needing the healing touch and re-modeling of our heavenly Father.
The first is avoidable, the second not so avoidable, the most important thing to hold on to is that the Potter puts us back together again. Praise God from whom all good things come!!
