Read: Jeremiah 18: 1-10

"As the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel."

God plucks up and breaks down nations or kingdoms that are doing evil in His eyes - but if they 'turn from their evil', God will reverse His decision. And a nation that God is building up that turns from Him and does evil, He will reverse His decision concerning the good He was going to do. Just like the potter at the wheel, he will rework what he is moulding until it seems good to him, (V: 4).

Our lives are often likened to the clay, and God is the potter. He moulds us, shapes us and forms us into the vessel He wants us to be. Being on the potter's wheel, under the potter's hand, can cause us some pain. Being moulded and changed into a vessel that can be mightily used is painful. It is so necessary though, to allow ourselves to be moulded by our Father God.

Would you allow Him today to shape you and make you into the vessel that can be used for the purposes He has planned? You shall then emerge a beautiful vessel that God can fill and send forth.

So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honourable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work. ~ 2 Timothy 2: 21

Lord, I pray that I may be
A vessel that you can use
Mould my life with loving hands
To be whatever you choose.
