this was the most memorable illustration i have ever shared
A man walks into a Blacksmith shop and sees a big strong man
swinging a hammer and bending and forming metal. Next to him is
an average size man pointing at the metal and talking to the large man.
The man asks, "Why are you here?" The average size man says, I am the
Blacksmith, i take this metal and make it into a work of art. This strong man
only hits the metal where I tell him to hit it and how hard I tell him to hit it.
Step back and see this truth
God is forming us into the image of Jesus and satan is only allowed to "hit"
when and how hard and where, the sovereign God says, in order to form
us into a work of art!
