ISAIAH 64:8 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 IS ACKNOWLEDGING GOD THE FATHER, AND THE FALLEN STATE OF HUMANS.

WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING THE SINFUL HUMAN STATE,  ISAIAH IS CRYING OUT TO THE LORD GOD FOR HELP, IN THE FACE OF PAST MISTAKES, DISOBEDIENCE, AND PRESENT THREATS AGAINST THEM, HE IS DECLARING THE READINESS TO SUBMIT.

GIVEN THE HOPELESS STATE OF MAN, ISAIAH IS THEREBY FOCUSSING ON SUBMISSION AND SURRENDER TO THE LORD. HE CRIES OUT TO GOD, SAYING, SINCE YOU MADE US, AND WE ARE YOURS, DO WITH US AS YOU WILL.

ISN’T THIS WHAT ALL BELIEVERS SHOULD BE DOING DAILY?  WOULDN’T IT SERVE US ALL WELL IF WE DAILY SUBMITTED/SURRENDERED, WAITING ON THE LORD FOR DIRECTIONS FROM THE FATHER BY HIS HOLY SPIRIT, INSTEAD OF BLUNDERING ALONG BY OUR OWN FRIVOLOUS THOUGHTS, DESIRES, & MOTIVES, AND CALLING OUR OWN SHOTS

LET US SUBMIT AS CLAY TO THE POTTER; AFTER ALL, WE ARE SO PRIVILEGED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY, THE CHOICE IS OURS, TO BE SHAPED, MOULDED, AND FORMED, NOT BY ANY ORDINARY HUMAN POTTER’S HAND, BUT BY THE HAND OF THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE WHO WE ARE HIGHLY PRIVILEGED TO CALL “FATHER.”
