“Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels” (Jeremiah 18 vs 3). Please read verses 1-6.
I remember watching the life story of Mother Teresa on television one night. I cried almost throughout the entire movie and at the end I went down on my knees before God asking him to give me a heart to selflessly serve him, even though I was already a Christian at the time, a greater conviction came over me as I listen to words spoken by her about her being a pencil in God’s hands.
Likewise, we are all but clay in the hands of God. Jeremiah chapter 18 vs 4 says, “And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter, so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make”. Sometimes we are marred or have become disfigured by the many challenges of life, but we should never see that as the end. God has the final say in our lives. The master potter can reshape us, breathe new life into us and make us brand new vessels. He will make us into vessels of honor sanctified and ready for the master’s use unto good works (2nd Timothy 2 vs 21).
At this moment, when you look at your life, maybe all you can see is broken pieces and confusion and you do not know which direction to take. Please do not give up, take a walk down to the potter’s house he promised to make all things new.
Let us pray: Lord I repent of my sins today. I know I have not spoken to you in a long time but here I am Lord with all my broken parts. Please mold and shape me and use me as you will in Jesus name. Amen.
Until next time. God bless you.
