DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IN THE POTTER’S HAND.
TOPIC: IN THE POTTER’S HAND
Memorise: 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 ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
Read: Jeremiah 18:1-8 1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 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 Then 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] ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. 7 [At what] instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy [it]; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
You life is in God’s hand. He’s your Maker and the Owner of your soul. He won’t allow you to be marred into a shapeless entity by the rudiments of this world but through your readiness will make you a better person though you have missed your ways unto victory and success. You have a God who is ready to repair your old wastes and to showcase you a rebranded soul to the nations of the world. So, while your friends and families thinks it’s over with you, the Lord is working out a better you to their widest amazement.
As the clay is the potter’s hand, so are you in the hands of the Lord. The clay will not struggle with the potter. You must stop struggling with your Maker and God. Allow the Lord to work through your destiny. Return to Him for a repair of your broken destiny and wounded heart. He’s the Repairer of destinies. He’s the greatest Potter of all ages. Stop crying all through the night. You have a Father who is more than able to restore joy and peace to your marriage and grant your heart desires. Do you have a broken marriage? The Lord our Potter is willing to bring you back to shape. Is your life and business going down? The Lord will help you going forward. Come unto Him with your burden of pains and heartaches. Surrender your fears unto Him and give your life wholly to Jesus. If you will trust the Lord for solutions, your destiny will be greatly repaired and restored unto God’s glory in Jesus’ mighty name.
Pray with me: Father, you are my Potter. Please arise to remould my destiny to your taste. Heal my wounded and broken spirit and give me your eternal joy and peace in Jesus’ name.
