There is a song that I love by Pat Barrett. It’s titled ‘Canvas and the Clay’. The song expresses that God is an Artist and a Potter. And WE are the Canvas and the Clay.
Just Beautiful. ❤
He knows our whole story. And He is shaping and molding and painting as He sees fit.
Yet somehow, I forgot the fact that God – in all His Sovereign Power – has the ability to provide things in my life that I didn’t ask for.
To shape my story.
Recently He hit me a doozy!!!! And it has re-shaped my understanding of God………in an amazing way.
God’s love through Divine Provision
Whenever God blessed me with something before, I never saw it as if He did it because He loved me. I would only see that He did it because I asked for it and had Faith that He would do it.
Sigh…..I never even realized what a poor mindset that was to have!
But now I am seeing something that I did not specifically ask for being manifested.
And amazingly………….all I can see……..IS GOD’S LOVE.
That’s why He did it.
Not because I asked.
Or because I deserved it.
Not because I stood in faith that it would happen. (I was completely terrified at first! I couldn’t understand WHY God would send this NOW!!!)
But I had to let go and trust Him. Completely.
And face my fears.
And on the other side………..I found the love of my Heavenly Father.
I understand so many things about Him better now……it’s crazy!!!!
But I love it. 😊🙌❤
God loves you!! And He knows what is best for you right now. He also knows when to give you what you have been asking for.
So………in this season, try asking God to help you trust His Heart, and not only seek His Hand.
You are the Canvas and the Clay ❤
