?He speaks so fondly of YOU…
Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee…
Considering we have all been fearfully and wonderfully made by the Master Creator, I often consider the why’s behind His intelligent design. In those moments of honest reflection, I do not appear too wonderful and I certainly am not without fear, yet this goes against His very nature, purposed from the genesis of design. Many of us love to create. A creation can be that of diverse design, whether it be in song, writing, the arts or even a home or the raising of children appointed to our care. We are in a constant state of creating, whether we are aware of it or not. A more familiar term would be, “Tending to,” in order to shape our surroundings in a Godly fashion, formatted in love. We make an impact, for the positive or negative, by the actions we take and the words we speak each day, affecting and shaping the atmosphere and lives around us.
What we love, we tend to and care for, instilling His permanency into the lives we hold dear.
Is this not what our Father purposed when He created us? To take all the goodness, mercy, longsuffering and love of which He is and weave it into the tapestry of us, so we not only become like Him in appearance but also do as He does… Being exuberant in joy and love, poured out as an offering to a lost and hurting world. In this fashion, we become a conduit of Him upon this Earth, creating just as He created, souls are born into the Kingdom every day in this manner.
I decided to look further into this word, “Precious” for clarity and understanding on His intentions. In Hebrew it means: To be esteemed, highly valued, rare, to make something precious.
Ahhh… That is it! At first glance one would think this word “Precious” is a descriptive word, where in truth it is an action word. Knowing Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our Faith, coupled with being precious in the Sight of our Father, I am comforted in grace, knowing He is molding me at His command, just as He is you too!
Does the vessel say to the Potter this is how you mold me? No. But rather the Potter diligently molds and forms the vessel into what is seen in His mind’s eye until perfection is reached. Knowing this truth I am most humbled and grateful, as we are all a work in progress. Thankfully, He sees the end of His work which is the real me, Precious in His sight, finished and complete in Him as a vessel submitted to Him with honor.
My prayer is that you awaken fully to the Potter’s Hands, moving and shaping you into the fearless and wonderful creation you are appointed to be, His vessel of purity and love.
God Bless You In His Love,
