Isaiah 29:16 ” You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘He did not make me?’ Can the pot say of the potter, ‘He knows nothing?’ “

When we’re caught up in the consequences of our own sinful behavior, we can go one of two ways. We can blame God for the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into, and refuse to take responsibility for our own actions. And instead complain, whine, and argue with God about how unfair things are. Or as it says in Job, “God, what are You doing?” But when we realize that blaming God for our own sinful actions will get us nowhere and we’re just receiving the fruit of our defiant disobedience, we can repent and ask for forgiveness. And if we do, that’s when God can move on our behalf…or as Romans 8:28 tells us, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called to His purpose.”
