God is the Potter – We are the Clay

Story of The Potter And The Clay God is the Potter – We are the Clay

One of the most powerful analogies in the Bible regarding our transformation and sanctification in the Lord has to be the analogy of the potter and the clay. The Bible says that God is the Potter and we are the clay.

It is up to God to mold, transform, and sanctify us as we journey through this earthly life.

Whenever God gives us a specific analogy in the Bible, this means that we have to seek into the revelation of that analogy in order to pick up what He is trying to tell us with the analogy. If we do, then we will see exactly what God is trying to tell us in reference to the actual analogy itself.

In other words, we have to find exactly how pottery is made if we want to fully understand what God is trying to tell us in this most incredible analogy.

Here is the key verse from Scripture that will give us this specific revelation that God is the Potter and we are His clay:

“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.” (Isaiah 64:8)

I have never made pottery myself, so I had no idea how it was actually made. But I always had a feeling that God would somehow bring someone along that would show and demonstrate how this process is actually done so we can see exactly how this analogy fits into what God wants to do with each one of us in our own personal growth in Him.

I recently received a DVD from a friend who had a pastor by the name of Pat Lazovich come to their church.

Pat used to make pottery before God called him into full time ministry work.

As a result of his previous experience in actually making pottery, God now has him traveling to different churches, giving real live demonstrations on exactly how pottery is made, and then how this analogy perfectly fits in and lines up with how God wants to mold, shape, and transform all of us in our personal growth in Him.

I reviewed the entire DVD, and his demonstration and explanation of this analogy was excellent. I cannot recommend this man highly enough with his demonstration on the potter and the clay.

If any of you would like to have him come to your church to do this demonstration for you, he is the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel in Sierra Vista, AZ.

In this article, I will give you the main steps on exactly how pottery is made, and then the appropriate explanations on how all of this fits into the analogy that God is the Potter and we are His clay.

Grab a hold of this very powerful revelation, because it will both visually and dramatically show you not only how God molds and transforms us in this life, but exactly why He does some of the things He does with us in this molding process, as this process can be quite painful and unpleasant at times.

In the next article, I will break down the main steps on how pottery is actually made, along with the appropriate explanations as to how all of this perfectly fits into God’s actual sanctification with us.

    I know what you are saying about we are the clay and God is the potter. I come from a life of 37 years of drug abuse, alcohol abuse, porn, adultery, fornication,lieing,revenge, hate, anger, foolish jesters, ect. the list goes on, and on. I now gave myself to the lord Jesus Christ to live my life for Him. Now God is molding and shaping me in to what He wants me to be. I lived my life for parting,and women not caring about hurting feelings whether mind or others.I was on the road of self destruction. I was even being warned of my sin in dreams and vision, but God mercy and grace kept me here today. I was at a place where I almost got killed for being at a place that the Holy Spirit warned me not to go, but I went anyway. My life was spared due to the mercy and grace God have over my life. Thank you God, for saving me amd keeping me here to serve your purpose.

    What a wonderful message. I started subscribing to these messages a couple days ago, and this came at such a great time. I have had some anxiety issues lately, and this is a great map of the direction I need to start taking, not only for the anxiety issue, but so that I can have the best life possible! Thank you for sharing and I look forward to many more wonderful messages.

    This article has opened my mind and led me to think back from when I commited myself to the Lord, I find impatiency in me, stretching beyond my boundry, and not being fully centered in Him. Thid has helped a lot to see the progress in my relationship with the Lord Jesus. Thanks and God bless

    To be molded you have to fallow the rules… and not be slave of sins!
