You Can Trust the Potter

Jeremiah 18:1-6 (Amplified Bible)

“ 1THE WORD which came to Jeremiah from the Lord:

2Arise and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.

3Then I went down to the potter's house, and behold, he was working at the wheel.

4And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it.

5Then the word of the Lord came to me:

6O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does? says the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.”

If you were/are spoiled (or some versions say “marred”), you can entrust yourself to the potter’s hands to remake you. This might feel painful; it might feel like you are starting all over again; you might not understand. You can always trust the potter to be gentle with your heart and to make you into what you are meant to be. He knows what shape you are meant to take, and He knows what is best for you. Hold fast.
