Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. A chance to begin again. A turning of the page. The new dawn brings hope and possibility. Anything can happen today. This day is all it’s own. Arise with expectation that God will show up in your life today and reveal something to you. He is a personal, loving God who desires to make things known to His people. He will speak to you when you quietly get before Him and listen to His voice. And in this quiet space before the Lord, we can submit ourselves willingly to be shaped and molded by Our Father’s Hands.
He has things to work out of you. Hurts He desires to massage away. Cramps and kinks that He wants to knead until they are straightened out. Disappointments that have left open gashes in your heart that He can fill up with fresh, new opportunities. Patterns of dysfunction or addictions, that you thought were part of who you were, are being removed by the Potter, Our Lord. He is gently removing parts that got added in by the hurts of this world. As He molds us and shapes us, He is working in the fruits of the Spirit. Things like patience, kindness, gentleness, and self control.
The more we submit ourselves over to be clay in the Lord’s Hands, the more access He has to work in our lives. He is Lord and He can do anything, and He also respects our free will. He will not force His shaping and molding onto us. He will shape and mold a willing people. You can rest assured that as you pray to Him, “Lord, shape me. Mold me.” He will move in your life and work new things in and other things out. You don’t have to fear this molding, because the Lord promises that His plans are good for us. He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us.
Everything the Lord does when He molds you is gentle and in love. His rebuke and His correction are in love. When He is setting you back on solid ground after a fall, He will brush off your knees. He will gently bandage your scrapes and bruises. He will show you a new way, and place you back on solid ground that you can dig your feet into and get traction again.
Turn to Him today, and just be open to Him. Be open to His gentle molding and shaping. He will gently shape you into a masterpiece.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for Your goodness and Your patience with us as You continually mold and shape Your people. Let us not fear Your shaping and molding, but help us to relax in Your loving Hands with total trust.
In Jesus’s name, Amen..
