Dear Hearts, I welcome you all to week 8 of the “Fridays Are For Faith ‘n Friends” blog hop! I’m honored to have you guys join me again today and I pray that you’ll join me here every Friday for prayer, love, and encouragement. As I explained in week 1, I may not be writing a message every Friday, but I will have a focal passage of Scripture in which I will be meditating on as I write a prayer to encourage your hearts. I will also be available to pray with or for you throughout the day and you can contact me for prayer anytime by clicking here. Also, each week I will share with you my favorite post from the previous week’s link-up. … So, link-up, be encouraged, and spread the love!
(Jeremiah 18:4-6 NIV- But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then THE WORD of THE LORD came to me. HE said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares THE LORD. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in MY hand, Israel.”)
THE FATHER is THE MASTER POTTER and we are HIS clay. If only we would fully entrust our lives into HIS hands— HE would mold us to perfection.
This morning as I was mulling over today’s focal passage, I just wanted to remind you guys that you are the flawless masterpiece and workmanship of THE FATHER’S heart and hands. (Song of Songs 4:7 NIV- You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.)
ABBA, I humbly yet boldly enter YOUR HOLY PRESENCE this morning with an incredibly grateful heart. Simply thankful for the beautiful truth that we are the preeminent creation of YOUR heart and hands. FATHER, I ask that you would help us to continuously surrender our hearts to YOUR heart daily that YOU may freely mold us to perfection. YOUR WORD says that we are YOUR workmanship: YOUR own master work, a work of art, created in CHRIST JESUS, reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used for good works, which YOU prepared for us beforehand, taking paths which YOU’VE set, so that we would walk in them living the good life which YOU’VE prearranged and made ready for us. LORD, today, I ask and pray that you would help us to know, understand, and embrace our worth in YOU. ABBA, we love YOU and we praise YOUR glorious name. In the name of JESUS CHRIST, YOUR precious SON, and our LORD and SAVIOR— I pray, Amen and so be it.
Happy Friday! I love you guys!
Believe, Be Beautiful, Be Brilliant, and Be Blessed! 🙂
