Who Needs a Do-Over?

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“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)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

The making of pottery is one of the oldest arts known to men. A potter takes clay and chops it and crushes it 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.

There are three ingredients in the making of pottery: the Potter, the clay, and the wheel. 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. The wheel is the circumstances of life. Don’t think the incidences in your life is meaningless. God wants to make something beautiful out of you.

ACTION POINT:

Though you may not understand it now, every turn of the wheel has been a part of God’s plan. If He does not rule, God 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.
