But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?
O Lord, who am I to question your authority? You formed me and made me like this.
Use me, O God, whether you chose me for noble purposes or common use.
Mold me, shape me!
Romans 9: 23 (NIV)
What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory
Lord, I am the object of Your mercy. You called me before I was born.
You are preparing me for Your Glory. I fall to my knees at the thought of your Mercy.
Thank you God that I am in Your Mighty Potter’s Hand!
