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. Then the word of the LORD came to me, 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, O house of Israel! Jeremiah 18:4-6
God created all of us with a specific purpose in mind but unfortunately many of us don’t understand what that purpose is. Most of us go through life living contrary to our purpose while others feel there is something else they should be doing but can’t figure out what that is. The interesting thing about God is that He does not change His mind. No matter what you do, how many times you do it or how hard you try, you CANNOT get God to change His plan and purpose for your life. I know I tried and failed. No matter how much chaos I allowed in my life, how many drugs I took, how many man I slept with nor how many times I walked away – HE NEVER LET ME GO! No matter how bad I looked to the world or even to myself, God looked at me and saw a masterpiece.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Others may say you’re nothing and you will never be anything, God is a creator and He has the power to make something out of nothing. Even if you believe what you’ve heard and haven’t been trying to prove them wrong, understand that God needs no convincing. He knows who you are and He knows what He created you to be. You may have begun as a caterpillar but your destiny is a butterfly. You may look like a seed but your purpose is a rose and during this season you may be bare, but in due season you will produce live reviving fruit. What ever you think about yourself nor what others say about you, please remember GOD CAN MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING!
Be grateful for the Potter’s wheel,
