PROCESS OF POT MAKING (TUESDAY 4TH JULY, 2017)
Read Jeremiah 18:1-6
1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 4 But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
5 Then the word of the Lord came to me. 6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.
The process of making a pot is to be learnt so that you can release yourself to the Lord, the Potter, for making accordingly. The Lord will work on you as a lump of clay on the wheels. The wheel is for getting the fine lump out of you by separation of coarse and unwanted stuff. The wheel of life could be:
1. Time (Process of time) 2. Human Agent (Discipleship) 3. Trials and temptation 4. Training and, 5. Potter’s House.
PRAYER: Oh Lord, I yield myself unto you to be made into a fine lump.
