Who Needs a Do-Over?
Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. 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. Jeremiah 18:3-4
The making of pottery is one the oldest arts known to men. A potter takes clay and molds it and squeezes it until it is soft and pliable. It is a beautiful thing to watch: a vessel of beauty or a vessel of service, or both, emerge from that ugly clay.
God is the potter. We are His workmanship. God is the Master Workman, working on us. Think of yourself as the clay and see what God can do with you, for He is at work in your life.
Do you feel like a marred vessel today? Though you may not understand it now, every turn of the potter’s wheel has been a part of God’s plan. If God does not rule, He overrules. He’s going to turn every Calvary to an Easter, every midnight to a sunrise. He is going to turn every tear to a pearl and make a diadem for you. The last turn of the wheel hasn’t happened yet. Cease looking around. Instead, look up. Look to Him. Look to Jesus Christ. In faith, call out to Him.
