The enemy of our soul will sometimes take the very Word of God and twist it and use it against us.
I once had the enemy use this passage in Timothy to torment a woman in our church.
He told her she was just a vessel of dishonor and that’s all she would ever be.
After all, didn’t the Word say clearly there are some who are vessels of honor
and some who are vessels of dishonor?
Unfortunately, she didn’t go on and read verse 21.
It clearly states that the choice of what kind of vessel we are is up to us.
If anyone cleanses himself he will be a vessel for honor…
If we will yield to God,
repent, allow Him to cleanse us,
allow Him to change us,
allow Him to empower us to live a life of obedience,
we will be sanctified,
set apart for His purposes,
and useful for the Master,
prepared for every good work.
