By Bible Names of God
Isai 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand.
It is a good thing to commit a verse such as this to memory, for we need a deeper consciousness of our own insignificance and of our absolute dependence upon the Lord. Paul says: "Hath not the Potter power over the clay?", and David says: Oh, Lord, forsake not the work of Thy hands." He is our Maker; His is our King; He is our Redeemer. We are compelled to cry to Him for deliverance in times of distress. Why not surrender all we are and have to Him and let Him mould and fashion us after His good pleasure, giving to Him all the glory for whatever may eventuate from our lives?
Lord, we are but clay. Have Thine own way with us as seemeth good to Thee and take all the glory. Amen.
