So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. Then the LORD gave me this message: “O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter”s hand, so are you in my hand. Jer 18:3-6. Sometimes God allows situations to turn our life upside down when nothing seems to be working. In the natural everything may appear hopeless or disastrous, but like the refiners fire, God is preparing us for something much better in line with His calling on our life. As you keep close to God through these times you will become aware of what He is doing in your life and see how wonderfully He takes you through. Praise God today that as we keep close to Him and remain pliable in His hands, we will see the beauty of His workmanship unfold in our life.
