"0 House of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?" says the LORD. "Look, as the clay is in the potter's hands, so are you in My hands, 0 house of Israel!”
(Jeremiah 18: 6)

Bible Verses: 1 Kings 3:1-15; Jeremiah 18:1-11; Matthew 6:25-34

The LORD took Jeremiah to the potter's house where he showed him the potter 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 make. Then the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah saying, "O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter? Says the LORD. "Look, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, 0 house of Israel." Today this same word is being directed to you. You are just like clay in the hands of the Lord God Almighty your Creator. You must allow him to work on your life through His Word in the Bible. Living life without the Word of God is just like walking in darkness. Certainly when you walk in darkness you are bound to stumble and fall. However, when you allow God to be the potter, He will make you into that vessel that is pleasing to Him. He is the one with every plan of your life. Read His Word every day and discover your destiny. From the moment Joshua allowed God to work on Him, no man was able to stand before him all his days. When Solomon became king over Israel, he first of all sought wisdom from God and certainly the LORD was pleased with him and He gave him wisdom and understanding. In addition he gave him both riches and honor. Abraham was called a friend of God and father of many nations because he allowed God to work on him. During this year to be distinguished, just allowed God to be your Potter and I tell you, He will distinguish you to what He has destined you for. Alleluia!

I come before You Heavenly Father so that You may shape my life in the way that is most pleasing to You. I thank You Father, in Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
