Our Heavenly Potter - Sunday, March 28th 2021

Jeremiah 18:4

And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.
NKJV

A mound of clay, by itself, is not a very beautiful thing. It may have some intrinsic value but in the end, it's still a pile of dirt. That is, until the potter gets a hold of it. Once the potter gets involved, this pile of dirt begins to take shape. As the potter presses in, the clay becomes thinner. The potter then reaches into the center and is able to scoop out all the excess clay within. While the clay began as a formless pile of dirt, it ends up as a beautiful masterpiece.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
NKJV

When God found us, we were like the clay - dirty and formless. We may have tried to mold ourselves, but only the potter is able to mold the clay. Once the Heavenly Potter came into our lives, He began molding and shaping us into the image of His Son, Jesus. With each firm press of His hand, we are changed. With every scrape of His tools, sin falls from our life. This is our Heavenly Father at work, and while it is painful, it is worth it. God knows what we need and He is the perfect potter whose loving hands will sculpt our lives into something far greater than we could ever understand. All we have to do is let Him.

Life Lesson: God desires to make a masterpiece of your life.

My Heavenly Potter,
I am sorry for my resistance to Your hands in my life. I know that I need to be molded more into Your image, and I ask that You would place my life onto Your potter's wheel. Carve off the sin in my life and shape me into a vessel that can be used for Your Kingdom. In Jesus' name. Amen.
