1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. 4 And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.
Jeremiah 18 : 1 – 4
English Standard Version
The above scripture said the clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter. We will continue from where we stopped last week but our emphasis today is on the seemingly spoiled clay.
Many a times its as if our situation is moving from bad to worse, and everything is going down the drain. Never mind my friends, just allow the master to make a masterpiece from your immaterial mess.
He specialises in turning your mess into a message. Let go and let God. He can make you yet into another glorious vessel. It is not the end yet friends, you are going through a process of refinement. You may look marred now but a glorious you will come out of the process at the end.
To the ordinary folks around you, who think your end has come! And you feel ‘there is no more hope for you’ I come with a message of hope for you that ” what you are going through will not consume you but rather, it will consume the dross in your life to bring out the Christ likeness within your heart”. Your passing through will not see your end, you will live to tell your testimony,just allow the master to perfect his work in you.
Jesus is telling you “let’s go to the other side” and surely you will get there! No matter the raging tempest and the boisterous sea, it will not swallow you because the last thing he said to you is that “let’s go to the other side”. He said “my food is to do the will of Him that sent me and to finish it” therefore He is never a God of abandoned projects. He will complete that which He has started in you if you allow Him. The other side he is calling you to go, surely you will get there.
He is calling you friends, allow Him to finish what he has started in you. You are the only one that can abort the process. Rest in His love and trust him to see you through.
