These were the potters and those who dwelt among plants and hedges; there they dwelt with the king for his work. (1 Chronicles 4:23)
“Anywhere and everywhere we may dwell “with the king for his work.” We may be in a very unlikely and unfavorable place for this…it may be among the hedges of all sorts, hindrances in all directions; it may be furthermore, with our hands full of all manner and pottery for our daily task.
No matter! The King who placed us “there” will come and dwell there with us; the hedges are right, or He would soon do away with them. And it does not follow that what seems to hinder our way may not be for its very protection; and as for the pottery, what, that is exactly what He has seen fit to put into our hands, and therefore it is, for the present “His work.” -Frances Ridley Havergal
