Stay on the wheel

Read Jer 18:4 this morning in a devotional. It talked about us being clay and God being the potter. This really stood out .. The Potter will not stop until the job is done. God's job would be simple if we were just inanimate lumps of clay. But we're clay animated by self-will and "we want what we want when we want it". But rather than giving in to us, or giving up on us, the Potter keeps working and reworking the clay, day after day, until we gradually begin to take on a shape He can use for His glory. This sometimes calls for radical action on His part:'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'. God is so committed to His objective in your life that He won't quit - even if it means allowing you to be crushed and starting the process over again. So be patient and stay on the wheel; what God has in mind for you is worth it
