Jars of Clay
2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it will be evident that such overwhelming power comes from God and not from us.
I had a vision this morning as I was praying. In the vision I saw white, I am assuming, Alabaster Jars because they were white. I saw that the outside was white being that they were alabaster, however, the inside of the Jars were full of dirt up to the rim of the jar.The dirt in the jars was hard because, I believe, it had been there for a long time. It is worthy of note that the outside of the jars were white and clean-looking. Then I saw a stream of water being poured on them. At first the water just poured over the jar because the dirt inside was so hard. As the water kept on pouring, however, I saw the dirt begin to loosen and soften and I then saw mud which meant that the water was beginning to penetrate. The water kept on pouring until there was no trace of mud inside of the vessel, only clean drinkable water.
God shares His glory with no one. So the dirt in the vessel is what I will call “self”. The water only became drinkable when the dirt, “self”, was totally cleansed from the vessels. Nobody in their right mind would want to drink muddy water. While the Lord may be pleased to put His power in jars of clay He will not allow His power to be polluted with, “self”, just as He will not share His glory with anyone.
