The Vessel By Brenda Drake

Life is a precious gift.  We are each known to God; the Word says He knew us in our mother’s womb.  When we are born-again Jesus is in our hearts and we are one with the heart of God.  We are a vessel that now causes to the Father great delight.

The Vessel

The Creator beheld the lump of clay but saw the vessel within.
It wasn’t just any vessel; it was to be made for Him.
Before it was He knew exactly how it would be.
For He already had a plan that only He could see.
In fact He saw it even before it was the lump of clay;
For the idea was always in His heart tucked away.
This vessel became tarnished and was taken from His grasp;
But the One that created all things paid the price He asked.
The vessel is made new and formed from within.
The reborn soul is molded and shaped by Him.
Oh what a beautiful vessel that is made because of Christ.
He is the One that gave for man His own life.
When man allows God full control,
He is made into the most precious vessel,
That will carry the Word of God for another to hear;
That gives to His God all that is to him most dear.
This is the vessel chosen to hold Heaven’s wine.
This is the vessel that the Creator designed.
Beautiful, precious, valued so high that the Angels strain to see,
All that the Creator plans to pour through thee.
Great things are destined for every newborn life;
For they become the vessel that causes to the Father great delight!

2 Timothy 1:9
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
