Today’s Reading – Isaiah Chapters 44-48
Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’
Does your work say,‘The potter has no hands’? Isaiah 45:9b
Isaiah continues with more good news.
God is greater than any enemy you may have.
God will be victorious and Isaiah is laying out how this will take place (BTW, his prophecy was accurate!)
God is calling out Cyrus a century before he was born as the instrument of God’s victory.
God asks, “Who are you to question MY ways?” “Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’”
God is making it clear to His people and to the world – I am GOD and there are none other like me!
This is one of those moments when you want to yell, “Go God! You tell ’em – those stupid idiot, Isrealites should have known better”
However, it is in that moment that you begin to realize that God is speaking to you and your voice quickly trails off into silence.
Ever had one of those moments?
It’s okay. People who have followed God have been having them for centuries.
Question is “What will you do with your moment?”
Humbling when God works that way.
