Increased Capacity


by Roy Lessin

For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.Psalm 107:9

The potter can take a lump of clay and form it into a vessel that holds a pint of water. The potter can also take the same lump of clay and form it into a vessel that holds twice the amount of water. This is done by the potter’s skillful hands as he reshapes the vessel to increase its capacity to hold more.

Do you sense the hands of your Heavenly Potter shaping and stretching you as His vessel? He is doing it to increase your capacity to receive more of His fullness—His life, His love, His strength, His power, His grace.

The souls which thirst for His promises may evermore be filled from His abundance.” –Gelasian

Not a prayer, not an act of faithfulness in your calling, not a self-denying or kind word or deed; not a weariness or painfulness endured patiently; not a duty performed; not a temptation resisted; but it enlarges the whole soul for the endless capacity of the love of God.” – E.B. Pusey
