Sometimes our lives can be broken. Other times we can be completely decimated — rendering us into a pile of dust. How fortunate for us that we serve a Creator Who knows just what to do with dust. Mack Brock sings of God’s ability to create out of dust in his song “Into Dust.”
Let’s be encouraged together as we explore what God can do with a little dust in Scripture.
On this episode I discuss:

- “Dust doesn’t have to signify the end. Dust is often what must be present for the new to begin.” – Lysa Terkeurst Article
- How in Scripture God uses dust to create, to heal, and to start over
- God using dust to create – Genesis 2:4-7
- God using dust to heal – John 9:1-7
- How God doesn’t NEED dust…He spoke into creation and healed from afar…but He sometimes chooses to use it

This Week’s Challenge
Read Genesis 1 and 2, John 9, and Jeremiah 18. Ponder how God used dust in each of these areas of Scripture. Perhaps these can be jumping-off points for you to read larger chunks of Scripture. Listen to His voice, repent, and return. Amend your ways and deeds. Trust your dust in the hands of the master potter.
