I was reading my daily scripture passage, and the Holy Spirit brought to my attention Romans 9:20-21.
"No, don’t say that. Who are you, a mere human being, to argue with God?
Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it,
“Why have you made me like this?”
When a potter makes jars out of clay,
doesn’t he have a right to use the same lump
of clay to make one jar for decoration
and another to throw garbage into?"
Far too often, I have questioned God why I have an autoimmune disease. Most of the time, I settle it in my spirit and soul and press on thanking God for perfect health as promised in the Word.
I have witnessed that illness is a means to draw me close to God, to be utterly dependent on Him, and it keeps me from running ahead of His time.
I also acknowledge that our enemies are of the spiritual realm, and Satan would love nothing more to keep me in bondage. However, this will never work because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4) Satan is defeated and will not win!
The Holy Spirit highlighted to me, "Who are you, a mere human being, to argue with God? Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it, "Why have you made me like this?"
Such a powerful Word to meditate on. Who am I to question God in my life, situation, or anything else? Isn't He all-powerful and all-knowing?
God knows what's best for all of His creation, we are His clay; this includes my life's journey and yours.
"But now, O Lord,
You are our Father;
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all we are the work of Your hand."
God knows what's best for all of His creation. We are His clay; this includes my journey to a healed life.
I offer praise and thanksgiving to Creator God, Abba, my Father, for He keeps us in all His ways.
"Father, for He keeps me in all His ways.
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone."
God's Blessings and peace ~
