All children of God have the inner urge to please God. We want to do thing to make our God happy. We want to do more and be more influential with a big sphere of influence. As a Christian you may have many favorite verses, messages and songs. One such song that stirs the core of a person is the song Potters Hand. This song makes every one go on knee and sing from the depth of the heart with a sense of prayer to God. It is an awesome song with wonderful lyrics. Lyrics for the song Potters Hand
The song chorus says
Take me and mold me, use me, fill me I give my life to the Potter's hand
Call me, You guide me, lead me, walk beside me I give my life to the Potter's hand
Today God is speaking to all his children. He shows no favoritism to any. He is leading you and guiding you. He keeps shaping you and molding you. He is ready. He has a plan and had finished it on the cross. The work from his side is over. Are you ready to give your life in to the potters hand?
To be in the potters hand you need to be Pliable - which means easily bent; flexible. You need to be moldable. According to dictionary moldable means - capable of being shaped, bent or drawn out. How are you to it. Are you pliable? Are you ready for a change? Have you prepared your mind to be flexible to what the change what God is saying. You may want to go along with the crowd.... but when you give yourself into the potters hand you must be ready to go as he leads you and guides you. You may have to tread the path alone with not many around you able to understand the change that is happening inside of you, but are you ready to get changed as he molds you.
You can pray earnestly and sing with a sense of prayer in your heart. But how are you to change. If you are not ready to change then no matter how earnestly you sing or pray nothing is going to happen. Like the quote its foolishness to expect different results by doing the same thing.
Do you need a change in your spiritual walk?
Are you feeling hungry and in need?
Are you feeling thirsty and dry?
Bible says Jesus is the Bread of life and who comes to him WILL NOT HUNGER AND THIRST. Jesus never said this for fun or for name sake. He meant everything He said. So why are you still in hunger and thirst even after attending church without fail, attending meetings and crying out to him in prayer. Have you thought of it. Its times to think...... its time to renew........... its time to transform....
How to change?
- Spend time thinking and examining yourself and the environment in which you are in.
- Examine if your image of God is write as per the bible?
- Are you stuck with last year testimonies and encounters?
- When was the last time you heard God speak to you and challenge you?
- How sensitive are you to his voice? If you are not yet trained to hear his voice then how will you know which way he is asking you to take and which way he is asking you to follow him?
- Are you curious to explore the freedom that Paul speaks to Galatians that in Christ?
- Find out how much of grace you are enjoying in life?
- Find out what excites you most.......... doing for Him or Knowing him? There is a whole lot of difference in both these things.
Today and this weekend take a time out to examine yourself. Spend time praying the prayer of Paul as mentioned in Ephesians 1: 18 to ask the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of your heart.
We cannot be molded and shaped unless we get what he is saying. Self, performance mentality has to be removed fully. Jesus called the people to rest in Him...... do not be so screwed up as to what to do for Him. He is not a performance oriented God.
So start praying a prayer and let yourself loose to the changes God is bringing in your life. Keep your life focused on God and be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit so that you will be able to know the good, pleasing and perfect will of God.
YOU CAN DO IT........... JUST BEGIN TO RENEW THE MIND WITH THE WORD
