THE MASTER POTTER

By Elaine Tavolacci

March 4, 2017

The Holy Spirit showed me a lump of clay on a potter’s wheel. The potter began to spin the wheel as he molded and shaped the piece of clay as he formed it. When making pottery on a potter’s wheel, the clay has to first be centered, then water is applied before the potter begins his creation. The potter then shapes the clay into the image that he desires. There are different wheels used to create different vessels. The Lord has designed each one of us in a distinct way with a specific calling. Each person is created for a unique purpose and plan.

The Lord told Jeremiah to go down to the Potters house to give him a prophetic illustration. When he went, he had seen the potter making something at the wheel. The clay vessel that the potter had made was marred in his hands; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make. Many people don’t understand the process of the potter’s wheel. The potter’s wheel is not to judge us or punish us, but it is to form us into the masterpiece that Jesus has created us to be.

The Lord says; just as the potter designs each clay pot into different shapes and sizes, I have designed and created every individual. Every person has been born with a unique purpose and plan. Each of you have been strategically designed for a particular purpose, and I will work with each of you in a specific way. Do not fear the potter’s wheel and do not refuse it, for this is My workmanship. This is the place where I am molding you and conforming you into My image. This is the place where all impurities and defilement will be destroyed and all bruises and blemishes will be erased. This is the place where the rough edges will be smooth out, broken vessels will be restored and old mindsets will be dismantled. Afflictions, traumas and misfortunes from the past will be removed, and dreams will be birth and brought forth. This is the place where your mind will be renewed and you will learn to walk in integrity and maturity. This place is necessary for your spiritual growth to bring forth the gifts that I have placed on the inside of you.

Do not refuse the work on the potters wheel but allow Me to transform you as I shape your life and destiny. Trust Me when the process seems too difficult. Don’t say that this is an uncomfortable place, but know that it is for your benefit and it is necessary to bring you in to the fulfillment of My plans. Do not resist the work that I am doing on the inside of you, but allow Me to accomplish My perfect will through you. Allow Me to work with you and fashion you into My image. I Am the master potter and as you allow Me, I will design your life so that you will become all that I have created you to be. You will become a glorious vessel of honor, and others will see the brilliance of the transformed life that I am creating in you. I desire to make something beautiful out of your life as you allow Me to work in you and through you says the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Isaiah 29:16
Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?

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.

Jeremiah 18:1-4
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying:” Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

THIS CHRISTMAS – 2016

THIS CHRISTMAS – 2016

 

This Christmas

“MERRY CHRISTMAS”

 

When considering what to post as my Christmas message this year, I decided to re-post what I said in 2013 because my sentiments are truly the same, and even more-so considering the enemy’s increased warfare against Christ during this season.

Be inspired, be encouraged, be determined, and be blessed!

Kim

THIS CHRISTMAS

This Christmas,

each time you see a light, remember that Jesus is the light of the world.

This Christmas,

each time you see a gift, remember that God gave the greatest gift in sending His only begotten Son to earth so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

This Christmas,

each time you see a Christmas tree, remember the price Jesus paid for your salvation by suffering and dying on the cross.

This Christmas

each time you see preparations made in commemoration and celebration of the first arrival of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, remember the importance of preparing yourself for His next arrival because He is coming again, not as a baby in a manger, but as a mighty, conquering King.

This Christmas

may you and your loved ones have a blessed, peaceful, safe, and Christ-filled, holiday.

Merry Christmas!

 

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

(Isaiah 9:6-7 – NKJV)

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

(John 3:16, 17 – NKJV)

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

(John 10:10 – NKJV)

Kim

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

 

I woke up this morning with the song “You Are My All In All” in my spirit and thought I’d share it.

It is a blessing to me……may it also bless you.

Shalom,

Kim

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

Although blessed with some good people in my life whom I appreciate, treasure, and am very grateful to God for, hands down, my best friend is Jesus Christ. I really can’t imagine life on this earth without Him, and I’m not just saying that to sound spiritual or impressive, He is truly my all in all.

“The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him.”

(Psalm 28:7 – NIV)

“My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.”

(Psalm 62:7 – NIV)

DO YOU REALLY LOVE THE LORD?

DO YOU REALLY LOVE THE LORD?

“I LOVE YOU LORD” – MARANATHA SINGERS

 

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

Of course I love the Lord!

What do you mean if I love the Lord?

What kind of question is that?

I’m a Christian right!

But wait, before you answer or comment, there is a question that needs to be answered first – What does it mean to love the Lord?

Does it mean to have a warm affectionate connected feeling toward the Lord?

Does it mean to sing with your whole heart songs about loving the Lord?

Does it mean to verbally say “Lord I love you”?

Check out the below scriptures and see what Jesus had to say on this matter.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

(John 14:15 – KJV)

“If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.”

(John 14:15 – Amplified Bible)

__________

“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

(John 14:21 – KJV)

“The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]”

(John 14:21 – Amplified Bible)

__________

“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.”

(John 14:23-24 – KJV)

“Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.
Anyone who does not [really] love Me does not observe and obey My teaching. And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but [comes] from the Father Who sent Me.”

(John 14:23-24 – KJV)

__________

The scripture is clear that the Lord’s gauge of our love for Him is our obedience to Him.

From Jesus’s perspective, the way that we show that we love Him is by obeying His teachings and His commandments.

The word “love” in each of these scripture verses is the Greek word “agapao” which Strong’s Concordance tells us is to love in a social or moral sense, embracing especially the judgment and deliberate assent of the will as a matter of principle, duty and propriety; in other words; it’s chiefly a love of the head with corresponding willful actions and not of the heart or feelings and affections. (Source – Strong’s Concordance on E-Sword)

The Lord measures our love for Him by our obedience to Him, not by our being a friend to, fond of, having and/or expressing affection for or sentimental personal attachment to Him.

That is another kind of love, which Strong’s concordance tells us is “phileo” love and the love God desires, the “agapao” love is much more than that.

So now that you know how the Lord assess our love for Him, again I ask, DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

Do you choose to obey His teachings and commands or do you choose to live life as you please, doing what you want to do, making your own decisions and just have emotional attachment and “warm fuzzy feelings” toward Him and sing love songs to Him?

When we obey the commands and teachings of the Lord, He considers that as love for Him.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

(I John 5:3 – KJV)

“For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous).”

(I John 5:3 – Amplified Bible)

SELAH!

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

In John 21:15-17, Jesus asked Peter 3 times if he loved Him, and each after time Peter told the Lord yes, he loved Him, Jesus said “then” and gave Peter a command….”then feed my lambs”, “then feed my sheep”, “then feed my sheep”.

In essence, Jesus was saying to Peter, if you love me, then keep my command to you.

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few years?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few months?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few weeks?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few days?

What is the Lord commanding you to do today?

Are you going to obey Him and thereby prove your love for Him on His terms, the love that He really desires and that pleases Him, or disobey Him and show “love” on your terms, with lip service and emotional endearment?

If you love Him, I challenge you to show it to Him by keeping His written and spoken commandments to you.

 “I’LL OBEY” – DERRICK MONK 

DO YOU REALLY LOVE THE LORD?

Lord give us the willingness and grace to walk in obedience to what you tell us to do and thereby show our love for you.

SELAH!

THE PROPHECY ABOUT JESUS AND EVENTS LEADING UP TO HIS DEATH

“Who believes what we’ve heard and seen?
Who would have thought God’s saving power would look like this?
The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling,
a scrubby plant in a parched field.
There was nothing attractive about him,
nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over,
a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at him and people turned away.
We looked down on him, thought he was scum.
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried—
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed.
We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost.
We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong,
on him, on him.
He was beaten, he was tortured,
but he didn’t say a word.
Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered
and like a sheep being sheared,
he took it all in silence.
Justice miscarried, and he was led off—
and did anyone really know what was happening?
He died without a thought for his own welfare,
beaten bloody for the sins of my people.
They buried him with the wicked,
threw him in a grave with a rich man,
Even though he’d never hurt a soul
or said one word that wasn’t true.
Still, it’s what God had in mind all along,
to crush him with pain.
The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin
so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life.
And God’s plan will deeply prosper through him.”

(Isaiah 53:1-10 – The Message Bible)

“WORTH” – ANTHONY BROWN AND GROUP THERAPY

 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

(John 3:16, 17 – King James Version)

 

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

(Romans 5:6-8 – NIV)

IT’S TIME TO SACRIFICE “IT”……..AGAIN

IT’S TIME TO SACRIFICE “IT”……..AGAIN

IT'S TIME TO SACRIFICE "IT"

IT’S TIME TO SACRIFICE “IT”

 

At various stages of our walk with Christ, He points out the necessity of us giving up something in order to grow deeper in our relationship with Him and/or move to another stage of preparation for our divine purpose and destiny.

If you are at this junction in your walk, I pray that this post convicts and inspires you enough to let go of the “it” in your life so you can move on.

Be encouraged….be challenged…..and be motivated to do what you know you need to do.

Kim

 

Good morning.

Good morning Lord.

We need to talk.

Talk?

Yes talk.

Talk about what?

Talk about “it”.

Talk about “it”?

Yes, talk about “it”.

“It”?

Yes “it”…… the thing that stands between you and Me.

The thing that stands between You and me…….What thing?

You know the thing?

No, what thing?

The thing I’ve been convicting you about…you know the thing you’ve been holding on to for a long time that you enjoy but that you know grieves my Spirit because “it” is not of Me…….

Oh, that thing……sigh!

Yes, that thing…..that’s “it”.

Sigh!

Listen, it’s time to deal with that thing. It’s time to walk away from “it”, it’s time to cut “it” off, it’s time to let “it” go, it’s time to get rid of “it”.

But Lord it’s not that simple. I’m tied to “it” because a part of me likes “it” and does not want to let “it” go even though I know “it” grieves You.

I know, that’s why I’m asking you to sacrifice “it”….all sacrifices cost something; all sacrifices require dying to some degree of pleasure and embracing some degree of pain.

But sacrificing “it” will hurt, really hurt; sacrificing “it” will tear at the very fabric of my soul; sacrificing “it” will cause my heart to bleed, I don’t know if I can do without “it” in my life!

Yes, I know sacrificing “it” will hurt, tear at your soul and cause your heart to bleed and leave a void in you life, as a matter of fact it will feel like a part of you has died because a part of you will die, but that’s the price.

Lord that is such a great price!

Yes, I know but it is necessary that you pay this price for there is no other way. It’s time to deny yourself, take up your cross, put “it” on the altar and sacrifice “it” to Me.

Sigh!

Yes I know even thinking about sacrificing “it” hurts, but do you not think I hurt knowing that you love “it” more than you love Me?

Wow…..I didn’t see “it” that way…….You are right. Willfully holding on to “it” does mean that I love “it” more that I love You………SIGH!

Yes that’s right and this pains Me more than you will ever know.

SIGH!

Listen. It’s time to get rid of “it” because “it” stands between you and a closer fellowship with Me, “it” stands between you and a greater manifestation of My anointing in and through you, “it” stands between you and the next phase of My purpose and destiny for your life, “it” stands between you and the blessing I desire to release upon you……..the bottom line is that “it” is jeopardizing your future with Me……is “it” really worth all of this?

Okay I recognize the seriousness of holding on to “it”, but Lord I don’t know if I can sacrifice “it”.

I thought you said you can do all things through Me because I strengthen you. Do you still believe that?

Well, yes.

Can you believe that in this situation?

Well, yes.

Listen. You have My power within you to not only enable you to let go of “it”, but to also enable you to deal with anything that arises in your life as a result of no longer having “it”…..do you believe this?

Yes I do.

So, are you willing to pay the price? Are you willing to sacrifice “it” to Me?

Yes Lord.

Okay.

Lord, because You mean more to me than “it” and I truly love You and desire to please You, I confess “it” as a sin in my life and I ask You to forgive me for indulging in “it”. In obedience to You, I now renounce “it” and I lay “it” on the altar as a sacrifice to You and declare that every bond, connection and soul-tie between me and “it” is broken in Jesus’ Name. Lord I humbly ask that You change my heart so that “it” is no longer a desire to me. I thank you for Your divine enabling power to help me deal with all repercussions that may occur as a result of getting rid of “it” and I trust you to give me Your peace, wisdom, and strength as I move forward with You, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

What is your “it” that the Lord is speaking to you about today?

A habit? A relationship? A “secret” indulgence? A business/job/means of income? An attitude?

Be obedient and sacrifice “it” today”

 

Selah!

Kim

 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

(Philippians 4:13 – NKJV)

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

(I John 1:9 – NKJV)

“Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests] and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].

For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here] for My sake shall find it [life everlasting].

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]?”

(Matthew 16:24-26 – Amplified Bible)

IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR THE LORD?

BY ELAINE TAVOLACCI

 

There is a story in the bible about a great man of faith named Abraham. Abraham and his wife Sarah left their families and even their country trusting the Lord at His word to bless them and make them a great nation. In Genesis chapter seventeen the Lord appeared to him when he was ninety nine years old and told him that his wife Sarah was going to have a baby boy the following year. She would be ninety and he would be one hundred years old. Abraham fell on his face and laughed. Although he was a man of faith, this sounded ridiculous to him. In chapter eighteen, The Lord appeared to him again as three men came to him. He told Abraham once again that Sarah was going to have a son. Sarah overheard this conversation and she also laughed in unbelief. Although they trusted the Lord all along, they were now looking at their situation in the natural which was their old age. Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord?

The Lord says, is there anything too difficult for Me? Don’t allow situations in the natural to steal your faith. Trust in My promises and provisions. Do not see yourself as inadequate but know that I can do more with your life than you could do in the natural. I am El Shaddai and nothing is too difficult for Me. Just as I asked Abraham to sacrifice that which was most precious to him, his son was returned back to him unharmed. I will not take from you that which I promised to you. Just as I told Abraham to leave everything behind and trust Me in the journey ahead, I am calling you to trust Me with your future. Just as I led Abraham, I will also lead you. I am the same yesterday, today and forever and I am still speaking today. Just as I honored Abrahams prayers and did not destroy the city for ten righteous, will I not honor your prayers? Trust Me for your families, your cities and even your countries to be brought into My kingdom. Believe My word to answer every prayer and supplication.

Don’t make hasty decisions which will produce an Ishmael. Wait on that which I have promised to you because it shall surely come to pass. Just as I made a Covenant with Abraham, I have made a Covenant with you. Wait on the promise, your promised seed, Isaac is on the way. Don’t allow the enemy to magnify the difficulties in your life and make situations appear impossible. I will bring you through tough times that you have not been able to go through on your own, and open the doors that need to be opened. Trust Me to move every obstacle that is blocking you from getting to your destination. Go forward in that which I have commissioned for you to do. Go without fear or wavering, surrendering all for the assignment and promise that I have for your life; says the Lord.

Genesis 17:15-17
“Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?”

Genesis 18:10 -14
“And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” (Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.) Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

Romans 4:3
“Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Hebrews 11:8 -12
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude-innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.”

THE 2016 LIGHT CHALLENGE

2016 LIGHT CHALLENGE

YOU ARE CHRIST'S LIGHT IN THIS DARK WORLD

YOU ARE CHRIST’S LIGHT IN THIS DARK WORLD – SHINE!

 

In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus said that we, Believers, are the light of the world and instructs us to let our light shine before men in the same way that a city set on a hill would shine, or a lamp placed on a lampstand would shine so that people may see our good deeds and moral excellence and glorify our Father who is in heaven.

So, what is the 2016 light challenge?

The 2016 light challenge is:

To choose to let the light of Christ in you shine before others through your good deeds and moral excellence no matter what situation you encounter in 2016

What a challenge!

Are you up to it?

I am sure that each of us who takes on this challenge will encounter situations where there is great, and even exceedingly great temptation and pressure to respond or act in ways that hide the light of Christ in us, but don’t let that discourage you from joining in.

Enter the challenge with a mindset of dependence on God, keeping in mind that His grace is ever present to help and you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

Just like anything else we want to become good at, the 2016 Light Challenge will take practice and mindful effort, especially in situations that we normally find challenging.

If there is a time when you “blow it”,  “mess up”, or conduct yourself in a way that would make others question whether you even have the light of Christ in you, don’t get discouraged, give up or fall under the weight of condemnation, simply confess it, ask forgiveness, repent, pick yourself up and keep moving on. Take the stance of the Apostle Paul who wrote in Philippians 3:13-15:

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 All of us who are mature [pursuing spiritual perfection] should have this attitude. And if in any respect you have a different attitude, that too God will make clear to you.” (Amplified Bible)

We, Believers are the light of the world and the world needs to see our light because it is engulfed in darkness.

Considering this, as we go into the new year, let’s take on the 2016 Light Challenge and let our lights shine.

So, what is the 2016 light challenge?

The 2016 light challenge is:

To choose to let the light of Christ in you shine before others through your good deeds and moral excellence no matter what situation you encounter in 2016

What a challenge!

Are you up to it?

Let’s do it!

“GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD” – BY KATHY TRICCOLI

“You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”  

(Matthew 5:14-16, Amplified Bible)
