~~~ Inside the Book “Does Anyone Really Know Me?” ~~~
In order to identify with other people, sometimes you have to understand where they have been. Jesus knows our pain and suffering because He went through it and carried what we cannot carry. He said in Matthew 11:29-30, “Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” What He is saying is, give it to Me and take on Me, your Savior. God can do more with your mess than you can anyway. He can take a mess and make a masterpiece. He can take a victim and make a victor. He is the potter and we need to learn to let Him make something beautiful out of us even through all the pain of molding us as clay. He can and will do it. When we try and try and try only to fail yet again, that’s when God says, “Are you done? Will you let Me have it now? Will you let Me make something beautiful out of your mess?” God wants to do so many awesome things in our lives if we will only let Him and quit trying to do things our way. Does the clay say to the potter, “What are you doing?”
