Clay In Potter’s Hand


Clay In Potter’s Hand

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

 

 

Text:
Jeremiah 18:1-6
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,
2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

 

 

 

Introduction:
God is the potter while we are the clay. He decides what He wants to use the clay to mold. The clay does not have a say in what the potter intends to use the clay to mold. God, the Chief Potter, can turn ordinary clay to a beautiful piece through His divine master piece.

 

 

 

What Does It Take To Be God’s Master Piece?

1. You Must Be Ready To Be A Raw Material Ie The Clay,
Jeremiah 18:4-6
And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

 

 

 

 

2. You Must Be Broken Down For The Potter (GOD) To Remold You To The Form And Fashion, He Desires.

Isaiah 29:16
You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, “You did not make me”? Can the pot say to the potter, “You know nothing”?

 

 

 

3. You Must Be Prepared To Go Through The Various Stages Of Molding And Remolding.

Isaiah 64:8
Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

 

 

 

4. Don’t Allow God To Regret His Efforts In Making You What He Has Made You To Be.

Isaiah 45:9
“Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’?

 

 

 

5. You Must Know That God Can Break You Down Again To An Ordinary Clay If You Disappointed Him.

Romans 9:20
But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?'”

 

 

 

 

6. Don’t Allow God To Break You Down To An Ordinary Clay, Because It Could Be Regrettable.

Jeremiah 18:6
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.

 

 

 

 

Conclusion:

As clay in the potter’s hand, be ready to be what He wants you to be.

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.
