Upon the potters wheel.

Posted by appolus on March 4, 2019

Jer 18:2-4 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

Will you arise and go down to the Potters house? Will you come to the Father and place yourself in His hand? Will you allow yourself to be marred and to be ruined for this world? Can you abandon yourself to His wheel and allow Him to create in you what He will? He will not compel you . He bids you come to Him with the fullness of your life, holding nothing back and allow Him to mar you, to ruin you. Will you step forward and open up your heart and allow the King of Glory to come in all of His fullness?

We come to the Lord as pieces of clay drawn from the earth. He takes us and He rearranges us. Who we once were is crushed and broken and reshaped on the potter’s wheel. Upon the potter’s wheel we are the clay. We are in His hands and there is a process. How wild it is that we, the clay, would ever question the potter? Every part of who we are as genuine saints is shaped and molded by the potter and it is all in His hands. The steps of our lives are ordered of God. We are His. Do you think saint that this fiery trial that you are going through is out-with the bounds of the potter’s wheel ? It is not. So if you are tempted this day to question the Lord about the circumstances of your life, know that every part of your life has purpose.

It is never pleasant to be thrown down upon the wheel, to be taken in His hand and crushed, to be pounded and molded into something entirely new and useful for the potters own purpose. And even then we have to consider that the firing is yet to come. The furnace into which we are placed that hardens us and makes us strong. Yet those who yield to the potters hand is in the end shaped into something marvelous. I want to encourage you today saint. There is purpose in your suffering. You are being shaped into a vessel entirely useful to your Lord.

    Some additional points to this post……………… I just wanted to add a few points to this post. The Holy Spirit laid it on my heart to open it up a wee bit more. In the example of the potter and the clay, the clay is obviously us and the potter is obviously God. It is His hands that molds the clay. Now, the wheel is the world and the wheel is our life. The wheel turns as does the world. Our life turns constantly with circumstances and challenges and trials.If the world did not turn then there would be no gravity and we would all fall into space and be lost. Gravity, the spinning of the earth keeps us grounded.Without the spinning the potter could not rightly shape us. In conclusion. Sickness and infirmities and loss and challenges and trials and everything else that happens to us is not us being struck down by God. No, it is the spinning of the wheel that we call life. God uses these things to mold us, just as He makes beauty from the ashes. Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.(1Pe 4:12-13) My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.(Jas 1:2-4)
