The Artis't Design

Jeremia 18:4

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.(Jer:18:4) IN WORD: A potter isn't very emotionally engaged with mass-produced pottery.In fact, in mass production,the potter is usually a machine,but our Potter is deeply invested in His work.He crafts each piece individually with a specific design in mind,and He loves what He does.Our Potter,however,has a problem that no other potter has .The clay in His hands has a mind of it own.It should be thrilled 2 be touched by the Master,but it devolops its own ideas of beauty and comfort.It wants an identity of its own,largely independent of the Craftsman who put it on the wheel in the first place.Clay WITH A MIND OF IT OWN has the potential 2 be astounding beautiful-a loving,breathing masterpiece.Sadly,it always has the potential 2be stubbornly,ignorantly insistent on his own ugliness,and when that happens,the Potter weeps.That happens a lot.The Potter's plan is 2 display His artistry,but if a piece of clay isn't allowing His craftmanship,He'll contrive some pretty drastic measures.He,ll press it into a ball and start over.He'll take the same clay and use different approach.His goal is beauty,and He will stop at nothing to achieve it.. . . .In Deed: Ask yourself 2 questions today:What does the Potter dream of doing in my life?and What is He actually doing right now?Don't answer too quickly.Consider the heart of the Potter- His ultimate goal,His tender care,and His expuisite artistry.And then apply His heart 2 your present ciscumstances.Those questions will launch you into a reorientation that every piece of clay needs to go through:a shift from a clay-perspective to a potter-perspective.We nee to see our circumstances today in light of eternal glory.We need to see ourselves as expressions of His delight.When we dn,our hardness will turn to softness,our stubborness will give way to compliance,and our trials will become much more meaningful.---WHEN A MAN IS WRAPPED UP IN HIMSELF,HE MAKES A PRETTY SMALL PACKAGE. . .read also the following up of artistry mercy,integrity,workshop. .
