MORE THAN DUST
Pastor Pierre Du Plessis
Clay but made to be more. Allowing God to move us in ways unimaginable to others.
The LORD gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, 2 “Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.” 3 So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. 4 But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. 5 Then the Lord gave me this message: 6 “O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.” Jeremiah 18:1 - 6 NLT
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter… Jeremiah 18:4 NASB
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9 ESV
People cannot see their own mistakes. Forgive me for my secret sins. Psalm 19:12 NCV
But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires.” Jeremiah 18:12 NLT
But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make. Jeremiah 18:4 NASB
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.” Isaiah 55:8 NLT
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 NLT

So I read a blog this week and it asked what will the worship music of tomorrow look like. It made me really stop and think. Worship music really has changed over the years so what do you think it will look like.
