Ordinary Clay

Ordinary Clay


Do you sometimes feel you are lost in the crowd—just ordinary? Many people in the Bible that God chose felt they were too ordinary to do the job.

For example, God chose Gideon to conquer the mighty Midianites. Gideon said, “But Lord… My clan is the weakest… and I am the least in my family,”

But the Lord said: “I will be with you”. That is the secret.

Not only did God help Gideon. He helped him do it without weapons and with only 100 men.

“We are the clay, you are the potter”. Says Isaiah. Don’t be discouraged. God can shape His beautiful works from the most ordinary clay.
