“But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”
Isaiah 64:8 KJV

Adelaide A. Pollard wrote one of my favorite hymns “Have Thine Own Way, Lord”.  “Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way! Thou art the Potter, I am the clay. Mold me and make me after Thy will, While I am waiting, yielded and still.”  Does He have His own way in our life and in our heart?

So many times we try to do things our way but God’s thoughts and ways aren’t our thoughts and ways.  His way is best.  We read in the Bible.  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 55:8).  We need to let God have His own way in our heart and in our life.

The next time we sing this beautiful hymn, let’s sing it from the depths of our heart and mean what we are singing.  We have a loving compassionate Heavenly Father Who knows what is best for us and He will protect us and lead us in the way He wants us to go.  His way is better than our way.
