Only the Potter Knows the Purpose of His Creation


Dear Child,

Creation has no choice but to fulfill its purpose and be what it was created for. 

Man was given a choice, a free will and a creative mind to fulfill My purpose or create his own.

All I ask of you is that you be what you were created to be.

You can try to do that which you weren’t created to do.

But you can never be what you weren’t created to be, no matter how you struggle!

                                            Thus saith Papa

Isa 64:8  But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Eph 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

                   Everything has a purpose

In order to know the purpose of a thing you do not ask the thing

You ask the creator of the thing

Only the creator knows the purpose of the thing he created

When the purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable!

      Challenge: If you do not know the purpose of your being, ask the Potter?

                                  Choose to fulfill His purpose by being who He created you to be.

An Instrument in His Hand

I always use this fountain pen, which was a gift from my husband, John, when I journal my devotional time. One day as I was writing in my journal during my quiet time with God, the Lord used this as a window to my soul. I pray this word will also inspire you to be refilled daily with the Holy Spirit that your life will have an impact on the lives of others.

Dear Child,

As you hold your pen lovingly, as a gift from John, even so I lovingly hold you in My hand. The pen is the instrument but the hand does the writing. Even so you are an instrument in My hand, but I am the one who inspires, anoints and opens doors.

Rest in My hand, even as your pen rests in your hand.

Flow with Me even as your pen flows with your hand.

Continue to be refilled with the Holy Spirit even as your pen needs to be refilled with ink.

There would be no imprint if your pen had no ink, even so your writing would have no imprint on hearts without the refilling of My Spirit.

Thus saith Papa

2 Corinthians 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

Hearing Gods Voice

It’s Time to Declare Our Love


At this time of the year lovers are selecting gifts to please their sweethearts and children are busy cutting out paper hearts to send to their friends.

In the midst of all the activity do not let us neglect to declare our love for the Lord by offering Him a spiritual Valentine. Beyond all our gifts or service there is one Valentine that would please Him more than anything else we might offer and that is our hearts. No, not paper ones but the real thing. For when we offer Him our hearts we give Him our all. Thats what Isaac Watts meant when he wrote this line to his hymn “When I survey the Wondrous Cross”.

“Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were a present far too small

Love so amazing, so divine

Demands my soul, my life, my all.”

1 John 4:10 “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be a propitiation for our sins.”

How could we help but love Him? Yet there are many who do not return His love. This brought anguish to Francis of Assisi, when he thought of Calvary and realized so many refuse the Savior’s love. He was moved to travel the streets exclaiming “Love is not loved ! Love is not loved !” This is also the tragedy of 2013, for Love is still being despised and rejected by many. But millions do love and cherish Him. Our hearts are His. At a time when the world is searching for love in all the wrong places, let us declare His Love to the world by loving one another as He first loved us.

Challenge: 1 John 4:11 “Beloved if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.



All We Like Sheep Have…..

It is a known fact that sheep are dumb creatures. Perhaps the reason why God uses sheep as a window to our souls of our lost condition in Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
This side of Calvary we have an opportunity to follow after the Lamb Of God. Matthew 4:19 “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” If we follow Him we will be on the narrow way to life as Matthew 7:14 warns us “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Have you found it?
