In The Potter's House Part 2
April 28, 2021
Part 2 of 2
Seeing ourselves as clay in the potter’s hand helps us to avoid believing the myth that we are in control. We frequently don’t like the stresses of being shaped by God. However, as the Potter, God is in charge, and He has a purpose we cannot see. His purpose will take us through the fire so that, one day, we will come out as gold. Are we content being clay on God’s pottery wheel?
When we face disappointments in life, do we remember that God is at work? The prophet Jeremiah was taken to a potter’s house so that he could see how God relates to us through our circumstances.
Like a potter, God is shaping us, through both good and bad experiences. While we often try to resist His desire for us, His grace is able to remake even the most scarred vessels. Let us submit to the Potter’s hands and become an honorable vessel that suits His purposes.
