In the Potter’s Hands    

Jeremiah 18 4

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 18:4

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

We are the clay pot, marred by sin, often feeling unusable. But in the Potter’s hands He is able to transform us into a new creation. We don’t have to be perfect to be used by God, just willing. If we give ourselves to God, He will mold us into a new vessel fit for His purpose and every good work He has planned for us. We may be broken when we come to God, but He can make us whole.

Instruments for Special Purposes

2 Timothy 2 21 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 2:21

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

No matter what you’ve done in the past, no matter how broken you were God can still use you for His special purposes. When you come to God and turn away from sin you are forgiven and made clean. Your sins have been expunged by the blood of Jesus Christ. You are a new creation and God loves you and He has a purpose for your life. Get right with God, turn away from sin and prepare yourself to do God’s work for only He can turn your mess into a message. Thank God for forgiving you and let go of your past so you can focus on the present and on the future that God has planned for you.

Pour Out Your Heart

Lamentations 2 19.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Lamentations 2:19

Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.

 

God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring to the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our troubles to Him. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Don’t hold back, pour your heart out to God and He will give you peace.

Forgiveness

Psalm 86 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:5

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

 

I’m so grateful we serve a forgiving God.  If not for his forgiveness, grace and mercy where would we be?  He loved us so much he sent his only Son to die on the cross to pay for our sins so we could receive forgiveness. He is ready to forgive, he won’t hold back, all we have to do is come to him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith.
