WE ARE CLAY IN THE HANDS OF OUR MAKER

TEXT: JEREMIAH 18: 1-6
God created us in His own image without seeking for help or ideas from anybody. He knows what He wanted each of us to be from the inception of the earth. He has access to our destinies and the foundation of our lives. He can repair, restore, rebuild and remould us again and again.
At one stage in life, we might have been marred by the circumstance of this life, maybe you have changed what He moulded you to be while trying to fit into the society, God is ready to  re shape us any time there is a crack or a flaw in us. He is always ready to remould us to His desired shape.
God is sovereign; He has the power to do anything, He is the potter we are the clay. If we allow Him; He would form us into a useful vessel. “Yet o lord, you are our father we are the clay you are the potter; we are the work of your hand (Isaiah 64:8)
As clay; we are not suppose to have the will of our own, we are to yield to the will of the potter. “Woe to him who quarrel with his maker, to him who is a potsherd among the potsherd on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter what are you making? (Isaiah 45:9) For God to mould you; you must not struggle with Him.
Our God is still in the business of moulding and remoulding, He is a God of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, ----- chance. “So I went to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel, 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.” (Jeremiah 18:3-4) in anyway that the Devil, worldly pressure, ignorance and carelessness have changed your God desired shape for your life, like the clay in the potter’s hands, God can remould you to a shape that seems best to Him. All you need to do is to surrender to His will. You need to be soft, flexible and easy to work with, for God to be able to mould and remould you.
No potter will like to work with hard, dry and rigid clay,So also God does not delight in hard hearted, stubborn, and somebody that is not ready to submit to His will. The Almighty God is the living water; ask Him to saturate you with His living water so that in anywhere the pressure of this world has turned you to  dry and rigid clay; would be softened by the living water, so that you can be spiritually soft for Him to mould and reshape you.
