The Potter

2 Corinthians 4:7–9 NLT
We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.
The grace of God brings us out of the pit.

7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

We must allow God to mold us and make us.
The Potter (God) understands the pace at which He can transform your life.
Greater is He that is within you than he that is in the world. What is inside is stronger than what is outside.
Jeremiah 18:1–4 NLT
The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, “Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.” 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.
God never gives up on us. If we allow Him, He will remake our lives into something beautiful.
God (the Potter) is always looking for clay (us). He wants to create something out of our lives.
Sometimes the clay does not want to be used and has stones and sicks (impurities) that must be removed before it can be formed.
Good clay, a life totally surrendered to the Potter’s hands, makes the Potter happy and becomes something that brings joy to others, a chosen vessel.
