In our lives we set out with our own goal and ambitions. We are willing to set out and seek them with a baltent disreguard for everything and everyone else. We not only allow this to happen for our life goals but also our day to day schedules. I know that i am not perfect and set forth a plan for my day, & want it to go accordingly. This is honestly one of the largest areas of sin in my life because when my day doesn’t go the way i feel it should I begin to feel furious. The Lord however my have other plans for me through that day.
When I began writing this entry (eight hours ago or more lost count) I had a whole different direction I intended on taking this. The scriptures that jumped out to me this day almost pictured God as a Drill SGT in the marines. Because when you come in you have your own way of thinking but, you get introduced to this person who shows you all of your faults, then teaches you how to make them into strengths. God took a man who could not speak actually had a pretty bad speach impediment and sent him to Pharoh and used him to lead the people of Isreal. Or how about when you come to boot camp you are rather weak, however through the process you get stronger because you have had to use muscles you never knew existed in your body. Well that is like our faith in Jesus when we first accept him as our Lord and Savoir we have no idea how to persue life, so he teaches us. That first trial shows up, for me someone went into my car and took almost $900 worth of photography gear, now we have a choice to fall back to our old life or believe that the Lord will provide. Especially since I had to have a camera for my classes. Then we grow stronger and our faith becomes stronger. All I am really trying to say is we never know where Jesus is going to take us, and it can be a little difficult to want to trust him but he is the master on the pottery wheel, we just need to be a little more pliable. So please do not look at one another and question what Jesus is doing in them because he has something special in store for all of us.
Beloved recieve the gift of God which is eternal life only given by the sacrifical death of his son Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin. Lived a sinless life, was crucified on a cross, died and was buried, but on the third day was resurrected. He now lives at the right hand of the Father, confess your sins to Jesus and have that new life today.
But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? 22 What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, 23 in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory— 24 even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? (Ro 9:20-24 ESV).
And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. (Je 18:4 ESV).
