My Creator Loves Me
/

I know that God hears me every time I pray, but does He answer me in the way I want or expect? Not always, but I know He hears me just the same. I am comforted when I remember God knows what’s best for me. He hears my prayers. He knows what’s on my heart (Psalm 139:1-4). He sees everything that’s going on in my life. He helps me because He loves me, and I am His creation. God is the potter, and I am the clay that He can shape into anything He wants (Isaiah 29:16). I want Him to do what’s best with my life. I realize that I don’t always know what’s best for me, but He always does. I can trust my Creator with my life. When I seek to follow Him, He will help me make the most of every opportunity (Ephesians 5:15-17). God is not deaf to my prayers, and He hears me every time I call to Him. He is always with me, and He provides comfort and strength (2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Ephesians 3:16-21). He helps me every time I call to Him, even in ways I don’t see. God knows what’s best for me, and I call to Him when I’m in need because I know my Creator loves me. • Bethany Acker • Do you pray when you’re in need? Do you forget it’s an option? Do you sometimes not want to pray? • What do you like or dislike about the mental picture of God as the potter and us as the clay? • Once we’ve put our trust in Jesus, His Holy Spirit lives in us and molds us to become more and more like Jesus—strong, loving, compassionate, wise, etc. (Romans 8:29; Galatians 5:22-25). How does it make you feel to know that God is the One working in us (2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Philippians 1:6)? And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand. Isaiah 64:8 (NLT)
