We have a heavenly Father the one who created us in the beginning. Our heavenly Father gave us the chance to come back to Him through His beloved Son Jesus, and as such, we have the opportunity to partake of the Kingdom of God, by finding Jesus and walking in His righteousness. I was thinking about clay. It 's just a big lump. It does not move. It can not create anything of itself. Only when the potter picks up the clay and begins to shape and mold the clay, does it become a piece of wonderful artwork. God is the Potter and we are His clay. He is the one who created us and not we ourselves. And given the fact that Jesus redeemed us from the power of the devil, through the blood He shed, we are debtors no longer to sin, but to Christ. As such, we are to call on the name of Jesus and ask Jesus to create in us a clean heart and renew in us a right spirit, so that God can create us into His perfect and holy workmanship.

God is the potter If I allow Him to make the necessary changes in my heart I will have a peace able and prosperous life. We prosper not as the world prospers but in the way God prospers. We are more rich than the world. I am His workmanship created in Christ Jesus.
