God does not start a New Creation until the job is complete. He stopped on the 'seventh day' when creating the earth. But you and me ---Honey---that job is never complete until we are united with Him in eternal life.
From the moment of conception you are being molded, shaped and blessed. The tools He uses, the method He uses---well let us see the similarities in how a piece of sculture is shaped first.
"God, is that a chisel and hammer in Your Hand?"
"Yes. You want to be more than a piece of granite, a block of rock don't you?"
"Yeah --but won't that hurt?"
"Don't worry it will only be one little chip at a time --sometimes a bit bigger--but, My Hands will be in control all the time."
"Okay, I trust in You."
Or maybe we need to think about the seed that must die so it does not remain a seed.
"Uh, hi-God. What are you doing?"
"Oh, I am doing some gardening today, gonna plant some seeds."
"Wait--are You putting me into that dirt there?" "Yes dirt and fertilizer too."
"But that stuff stinks and wait are you about to bury me in It?"
"Yes ---do you want to remain a seed that is incased with a hard shell or do you want to open up to all the beauty of My World? Do you want to be a beautiful plant that is productive and able to bless another's life?"
"Okay, I trust in You."
Fine china, a instrument of great beauty and sound, a painting carefully painted on a canvas--these are just a few more examples of somethings AWESOME that are created!! Each has to be carefully molded, shaped or painstakingly brought into beauty one detail at a time.
Gold or silver vessels--first purified by fire: oh and those glass vases and globes--are held to the fire are they are nothing but a worthless piece of glass. The Crafts person NEVER leaves the item by itself---His Hands are ever present to make sure the completed "piece" is PERFECT!!! And even if a mistake if made (by us) He just smiles and starts again to shape things up AGAIN. And when we are ready to be the vessel, the instrument of His mercy and compassion--He will ask this question.
"Will you allow Me to use you? Will you allow me to use you body and all your mind and humaness and do whatever it takes to learn Wisdom? Will you TRUST IN ME?
"God, are You saying that it is You, Who takes me down paths of weakness and failure, tripping and using my human nature to humble me/teach me? What if I really go the wrong way?"
"Did I not say that I lead you on right paths for My Namesake? Fear not for I Am with you ---and will never let You stray, I am your Shepherd, I will shepherd you from going to wrong paths. Listen to My Words. They will help guide your way. Come, worship the Lord. Give Me praise--do not take Me for granted, never stop thanking Me and finding Me like you do in all of nature and the people you see. I will see you through any storm, fire, flood or struggle with your humaness. I LOVE YOU you are my Bride and nothing you do will ever change that. NOTHING!! I have promised it and as you know, I DO NOT LIE and I will never ABANDON you---no matter what! Child you are Mine and I love you like no other can."
