Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Who Am I? {Created} In Christ {Part 1 ~ Day 16} #31Days


"For we are his workmanship
created in Christ Jesus for good works . . . 
Ephesians 2:10






"We are His workmanship from the very first. The first stroke that helps to fashion us into Christians comes from the Lord’s own hands. He marks the stone while yet in the quarry, cuts it from its natural bed and performs the first hewing and squaring, even as it is He who afterwards exercises the sculptor’s skill upon it. It was the Lord who first taught us our need of a Savior and gave us our sense of sin—and our early trembling and our new desires. The faintest breath of spiritual life that was ever breathed by any one of us came from God Himself! We might almost use the same words concerning our new nature as the Psalmist used when he spoke of his body—'Your eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in Your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.'
We shall remain the Lord’s workmanship to the very last. The picture must be finished by that same Master hand which first sketched it. If any other hand should lay so much as a tint or color on it, it would certainly mar it all. God has commenced the character of His people after so marvelous a sort that no human mind, as yet, fully comprehends the full design of infinite love, for none know perfectly the matchless Character of Jesus, our Lord. 'It does not yet appear what we shall be.' Since, then, we do not even know what we are to be, we cannot intrude into the work and take the pencil from the hand of the great Artist, and complete His design—the Author must be the Finisher of what He has begun. "
