Clay

Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 18:1-12; 19:1-15 (day four)
Jeremiah says that God is looking for clay.  (Verse 18:6)  Clay has no thoughts, no strengths, no weaknesses, and no will of its own.  God is looking for people who are willing to allow Him to create them however He chooses.  Have you ever told God what your strengths are so that He can shape a plan for your life using them?  Have you ever told Him that particular areas of your life are weaknesses for you so He won’t try to use you in those ministry areas?  God can shape and mold your life however He chooses.  He is the potter, we are the clay.  The sooner we learn that lesson, the sooner we will be effective in His ministry.  It is our willingness to submit to Him…not our skills and talents…that makes us useful vessels.  Yield your life to the potter’s hand…His skill will bear fruit!
