God’s love, mercy, and grace are transforming! Even when it is painful and you feel broken. Jesus is removing what the flesh needs to be so that He can display His glory and grace through your life. Especially, when there looks like there is no hope of anything good coming out of your life! People will say ” It’s a miracle that he or she turned out right!” But believe Him! His word tells us about His love, mercy and grace even when our
Life mars us so God can rebuild us into another vessel
God is speaking to Jeremiah in verse two.
Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold; he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 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 it. 5 The word of the Lord came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? Saith the Lord. Behold as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
I understand, in this verse, God is talking about Israel. I will ask you though what makes a nation a nation? People!! So God is talking about His people, that thankfully being under the blood of Christ also qualifies everyone that has been saved by Jesus Christ. The promises of God are for everyone open to all as long as Jesus Christ is their Savior. So as a child of God now I can understand and know the Father through Jesus Christ. The promise here and out of this verse is no matter how beaten, broken and un-usable you are God can rebuild us into His vessel!! Halleluiah!
(Isaiah praying to Yahweh)
But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and you are the potter, and we are all the work of Your hand.
Remember we are all the work of His hand! He brings us to the wheel (salvation), then we come to the wheel broken and marred. God has to take His hands and mold us and build us into the vessel that He see’s as good and pleasing. During the time of being molded is a process and it depends on what the Living God wants for us. Remember we are all to serve a purpose and with a different purpose, there are various vessels. All shapes and sizes, all unique and they each delight the Lord. We all are broken that is the beauty of the potter’s wheel! Let Him remold and turn you into a beautiful vessel.
