Do you find yourself at times just being too busy? Wrestling schedules, chores, appointments, phone calls, and the like? Well, whenever you find yourself so busy that you neglect or abandon your priorities in life - it is probably time to holt whatever you are doing and take time to reorganize.

It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to become entrapped by the concerns of this world. To be overrun by thoughts that crush your vision, and sabotage your dreams. Memories of better days that we can’t return to, and worries of a future uncertain. Don’t be overwhelmed with these things that you miss the opportunities of “now”.

Take some time today to reconsider, rethink, and re-prioritize. There is never a better way to invest this time without inviting God into this journey. Some devotional time is also an important priority in life.

Matthew 6:25-27

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

There is an eerie silence which is marked with excitement for many, and fear for others. The suspense produced by uncertainty almost makes one feel as though we are all part of a science fiction movie which we never auditioned for.

In days like the ones we are living no one believes or trusts in anything, or anyone. And, just like those who are experts in brain teasers, this may all be playing out like the ultimate script - to create a global virus of disbelief which infects the hearts of all men so that we can’t neither love or prosper in anything. God’s Word teaches us that you and I should never arrive spiritually naked to any battle which is contending for our faith.

So, make sure that today you begin your week strengthening yourselves with the authority of God’s Word. Be sure to wear truth as a belt that enables you to harness your attitude, behavior and emotions so that you can make good decisions. Truth shall always prevail!

Ephesians 6:10-14

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God,so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist......

If you ever walked into a Potter’s room, you would find several interesting instruments that help the artist fulfill his/her final handiwork. Like a surgical room, you will find a kiln for fire, a wheel for revolutions, and a pug mixer that preps the clay before use. All this equipment and others are important in the “process” of making a useful vessel, but nothing is more important than the clay.

In Potter’s shop, you and I will also find that there are clay substances which are easier to work, than others. Some require more time, and others more effort. But, by simply adding a little “water” to its parched nature the clay will begin to hydrate until it melts in the hands of its craftsmen. The water, in Scripture, has always represented the living Word of God. And, when that Word reaches the crevices of the human heart it will enrich the soil making it useful.

No matter how hard things may look, how tense we may become, or how resentful our hearts may be. God continues to work and massage His hands in our lives. Like a good Potter, He will not stop until He has completed His handiwork.

God is the Potter, and we are the Clay!

Jeremiah 18:1-6

1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 4 But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

5 Then the word of the Lord came to me. 6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.
