"Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, 'What are you making?' Does your work say, 'He has no hands'?" (Isaiah 45:9)
This verse made me think of how many times I've asked God:
What are you doing?
Don't you see this mess?
But I never thought that I was quarreling with the Lord Almighty. But truthfully I was second guessing Him, His wisdom and His sovereignty over the situation. I was so focused on my own discomfort because of my circumstances that God had allowed to touch my life that I forgot how much He loves me and how valuable I am to Him.
You need to fix this.
The clay doesn't tell the potter how to form it. The clay has no idea of its potential, and even if it did, the clay has no idea of how to achieve its potential without the gentle guidance of the potter. Sometimes the potter has to squish the clay and start all over in order to achieve the desired results. The clay has to trust the Maker and remember that the safest place to be is in the hands of God.
