The Potter & The Clay

When we are facing trials in our life we ask certain things in prayer believing God will see us through. It is true that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. God hears and will answer in his time. There are times the answer comes quickly, but sometimes we must wait for the answer to come. This waiting period is when we seem to grow the most. God does a work in our heart that changes us and our character; we become more like Him. He desires for the world to see Him in us and through us. It's said that a potter takes a clay pot and breaks it, he then pounds it to dust, and forms a lump of clay. He then puts the lump on the potter’s wheel where he reforms the clay into another pot. The second time it will hold more water than before. It's valuable. He wants us to hold more water than the first time. Trials are to our advantage even though we don’t see it. But be encouraged, keep praying, keep believing, because the answer is on the way. “...tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
