    romans 9:20 nay but o man who art thou that repliest against GOD shall the thing formed say to HIM that formed it why hast thou made me thus 21 hath not the potter power over the clay of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor and another unto dishonor 22 WHAT IF GOD WILLING TO SHOW HIS WRATH AND TO MAKE HIS POWER KNOWN ENDURED WITH MUCH LONG SUFFERING THE VESSELS OF WRATH FITTED FOR DESTRUCTION

    A very inspirational verse that speaks to us that we are nothing without our Creator, we are like a ship without a rudder, nothing to stir it upon. For as we abide in him and seek his ways everything we ever wished for, shall be fulfilled. Our Creator completes us in everything we endeavour to do. Very inspirational verse.
