“Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does? declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel” (Jeremiah 18:6).
God has a history of shaping the lives of his people for a greater purpose. For this to be realized, it is necessary that the thinking, attitudes, and practices of the secular age be kneaded out of our lives. It is within the matrix of our brokenness, life’s hardships, and the never-ending grace of the Heavenly Potter that his providential intentions are accomplished.
