‘The Potter and the Pot – Field Trip!’

Jeremiah 18:1-3

“This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down at once to the potter’s house; there I will reveal My words to you.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, working away at the wheel.”

Classroom lectures and Sunday morning sermons are fine but nothing beats a ‘field trip’ for real learning and understanding. So what does Jeremiah learn on his field trip?

Jeremiah 18:5-6

“Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.”

The Potter is in charge. The Potter is the one who calls the shots. He molds and He shapes the clay as He sees fit for His purposes. Same is true for me and for you. We can trust the Potter – for He is our Loving Heavenly Father!

Question: What area of life am I hesitant to trust the Potter for?
