Jesus Christ is the Master Craftsman ! He was a carpenter He is an Expert in fixing broken souls for He is the Creator of Souls ! He is the Good Shepherd of Souls and their caretaker. He has loved them with an Undying Love, the kind of love this world or its inhabitants can never ever give !
Being the Architect of Souls, He is able to mend and restore broken pieces of a shattered life hurt by brokenness, betrayals, disappointments, anger, lust, jealousy and a host of other arrows.
THE MASTER CRAFTSMAN CAN DO WONDERS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH THE YIELDED CLAY. AND ONLY TO THE YIELDED CLAY. THE ONES OFFENDED AT HIS WORKMANSHIP WILL NOT SEE HIS GLORY !
If we are clay He is the Potter and He can use a lump of clay to make His Own Clay Figurines. His Hand can work on you and through you, putting you back together and giving you the former joys that you have lost through a lifetime of pain.
No human, no man is capable of this deep and intimate work in the heart of men. God is in the process of restoring lost souls. He gives them a brand new heart and soul. He raises them physcially from corruption to incorruption , from humiliation to honor, from messes to a message, from scars to stars, from tests to testimonies about His Workmanship if they draw near and surrender their vulnerability and offences.
No angel can ever play a role in this redemption of the hearts for it has to be the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the Trinity working in Unity to save lost sinners and wounded saints .
Just as He poured wisdom into Aholiab and Bezaleal to work on the Temple and give them skills and abilities, so will He do the same on you.
He will give you peace and strategies for escape routes when you are trapped by your emotions and the past. He works uniquely in each of His Creation who comes to Him for help and He will never ever turn them away. How can He? He loved you and me so much to die for us. Enough said ! His Love was demonstrated on that Cross when He took and became SIN – all the curse and punishment that it brings. He became the sickness and terrors that we grapple with so that we can receive His Love in Exchange for our Pain. Amen !
