**1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
Psalm 139: 14-14 “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.”
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ “
Genesis 28:15 “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
Isaiah 64:8 “But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.”
Zechariah 13:9 ” I will bring the one-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ “
Trust Him… it may feel like you’re being tested above measure… but it is by the love of our Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father that we are being created into the “new man” daily as we submit to Him! Rejoice in His never failing mercies and grace!
4 thoughts on “The Glass Blower”
A great analogy Stephanie, similar to the potter and the clay.
The glassblower is an expert but possibly makes more than a few mistakes. On the other hand, our Glassblower is a Master. He NEVER makes a mistake, and indeed it is IMPOSSIBLE for Him to make a mistake.
If we were wise, we would leave ourselves completely in His hands, yielding to His expertise, knowing that whatever happens, we are safe in His hands and the finished product will be perfect.
Silly us, we sometimes fight against His work! How foolish we are!
You are so very right Angela. Our God never makes mistakes. And yes, our flesh sometimes tries to defy our Maker thinking we know better, and that is pure folly!
Love in Jesus
Stephanie, I love this post. I love your faithfulness and your outstanding witness for Christ. Thank you.
You’re welcome for the post. But, my witness for our Loving Lord and Savior only comes from Him~~ He loves all of us so very much, it is a joy to love Him!
Many blessings brother
