‘The Potter and the Pot – The Key Question’

Romans 9:20-21

“But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ ” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

Thus the key question; “Doesn’t the potter have the right?”

It’s the Potter vs the pot. It seems silly to consider a clay pot talking back to the Potter that made it – yet that is what I am prone to do, especially when I forget that God’s ways are higher than mine. 

Isaiah 55:8-9

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Something for me to remember the next time I am ready to question God. It is also important for me to invest time with God in His Word if I am going to become acquainted with ‘His ways’.

Question:  How much time have I invested meditating on God’s Word this past week?
