“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!”
What a Scripture! ISAIAH 45:9, “WOE UNTO HIM THAT STRIVETH WITH HIS MAKER!” So many people today, most in fact, are striving with their Creator, Who is God, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1-3,14). Hebrews 10:31 warns, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Are you at odds with your Maker?
God formed man from the dust of the earth. It is humbling to think that an omnipotent (all-powerful) God Who literally spoke the universe into existence with His Words (2nd Peter 3:5), chose to lovingly form mankind with His own hands from the dirt of the field. Oh how God loves humanity! Yet, so many people kill precious babies and toss them into a dumpster as human trash. Only a monster would say that a baby in the womb is not a human being!
Isaiah 29:16, “Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of Him that made it, HE MADE ME NOT? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
Isaiah 45:9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to Him that fashioneth it, What makest Thou? or Thy work, He hath no hands?
Isaiah 64:8, “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and
thou our potter; and we all are the work of
Proverb 14:31, “He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.”
