FIRE, FIRE, FIRE, POTS ON FIRE

In most charismatic movements, churches and gatherings, these have become common expressions that we often hear among us. Often there calls for fire to come down to destroy, to be consumed with fire, but this week I would like us to review the next step in the manufacturing process of the pot; it is being […]

WATERING OUR POTS

If you have ever taken pottery classes, watched pottery or even played with clay, you will notice a common trend. Water has to be constantly added to the clay first to attain the right consistency to mold and shape the vessel and second water is constantly sprinkled as part of the process of shaping the clay into shape.

The Word of God is the water that shapes us into form. Purpose to read the Bible. Meditate and memorize the Word of God. Let the Word of God be engrained in your mind and heart. This is what the Lord instructs us in Joshua 1: 8 which says This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. These are also repeated in Deuteronomy 17:19, Deuteronomy 29:9, Deuteronomy 11:8. The Word of God is one of the crucial ways God uses. We are all being made and shaped by our Potter; God. This is how we are being transformed from glory to glory, to be vessels of good use in 2017.

As you water yourself with the Word, you will also receive the Words to speak into the year for each situation. This week, stay watered in the Word. Read the Bible more. Meditate and memorize the scripture. Ask the Holy Spirit to explain what you are reading. Write down what you learn from the reading. Do what you read. You are being shaped by the Potter. Enjoy the process. Share what God directs you to share from reading the Bible. Keep what God tells you to keep. From experience, God always reveals and speaks to us individually first. That means most of the revelations are meant for ourselves, for our shaping, for our watering before we water/minister to others.

A few days ago, my sister encouraged me with the following. She said, “Our part is to continue feeding on the Word (water). As the water goes in, we are emptied out of everything else BUT WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THE WATER WILL TURN INTO WINE, that’s the Holy Spirit’s part”.

As the water is being drawn out, we will find that the Holy Spirit has turned the water into wine for others”. As the Holy Spirit turns the water (Word) into wine, we are being turned into vessels of good use for the Master. Stay soaked and glued in the Word. Stay in the Water this year.
