This is for those who have decided to give your life to God and follow Him.

Psalms 119:73-74 NAS 73 Your hands made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments. 74 May those who fear You see me and be glad, Because I wait for Your word.

This message is to let you know that you can jump off the potter’s wheel and stop the process of God fashioning you.

  • This is not a choice by choice win or fail process
    • Most of what we view as win or fail is a part of that process

God started on you when He knitted your spirit to the physical body inside of your mother’s womb.

  • Psalms 139:13 NIV For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    • He knows exactly what needs to be cut off and added on

When the Lord adds a handle on a cup He puts a lump of clay and carves out the handle

  • When God adds boldness to us pride is a part of that lump
    • God knows how to cut off the pride and other things that are a part of the lump of boldness

It’s huge to know that God is for us during the hard times on the wheel.

  • Job 10:8-9 NAS 8 'Your hands fashioned and made me altogether, And would You destroy me? 9 'Remember now, that You have made me as clay; And would You turn me into dust again?

There are times when we have to trust that God is bigger than us and know exactly what He’s doing.

Job 38:4-6, 12, 16, 39:9, 19, 26-27 NKJV 4 "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone

38:12 "Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place,

38:16 "Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths?

Job 39:9 "Will the wild ox be willing to serve you? Will he bed by your manger?

Job 39:19 "Have you given the horse strength? Have you clothed his neck with thunder?

Job 39:26 "Does the hawk fly by your wisdom, And spread its wings toward the south? 27 Does the eagle mount up at your command, And make its nest on high?

Romans 9:20-21 NIV 20 But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” 21 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


The amazing thing about God is that if He made us He can repair us, body, soul and spirit (heart)
