Crushed Under the Potter’s Hand


English: Crushed Chocolatemilk can

Quote from our Pastor teaching on Jeremiah 18:

“So at one point in the shaping of the vessel, the potter discovered that not enough pressure was applied…and it didn’t shape the way [the potter] wanted…and he knew he could not recover the vessel’s design by continuing on. So he took his hands off…and crushed the vessel down…and got ready to make it over again.

“Sometimes, we want God to work with a whole bunch of stuff…We want to bring a whole lot of stuff and put it on the wheel, but God needs the clay to be pliable in his hands. God needs the clay to be able to be formed and conformed to His will and His desire. [The vessel] needs to be made after His goals and…for His purpose.”

One response to “Crushed Under the Potter’s Hand

    MY MORNDAY ,,HI TOO MY FRIENDS BE BLESSET IN THE LORD,,,,SIS DOT…………………………………….“What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation” Psalm 68:19

    Did it ever occur to you that you are disobeying God when you carry your own burdens, when you are worried, frustrated and confused over circumstances? That is exactly what God’s Word says.

    In 1 Peter 5:7, God gives a specific command to His children, “Cast…all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you“. Not to cast all of one’s cares upon the Lord is to disobey Him and to deny oneself that supernatural walk with God among men.

    Is it not logical to believe that He who loved us so much that He was willing to give His only begotten Son would also be faithful to keep His promise to bear our burdens daily?

    As the psalmist so aptly states, the Lord bears our burdens on a daily basis for the believer, the day will never come when God fails to carry our load, to strengthen us, to impart power to us through His indwelling Holy Spirit – if we but ask.

    Marvel of marvels, the psalmist points out, our heavenly Father not only is our great burden-bearer; He is also the very one who gives us our salvation and the assurance of eternal life. How could anyone ask for more!

    With the sure knowledge that our sins are forgiven (salvation) and the assurance that He knows all about every burden we face – more important, He bears them for us – our lives should reflect honor and glory to Him by the way in which we share His blessings and the message of His great love with others.

    Provision for the supernatural life is promised in the Old Testament as well as the New, as evidenced by this glorious promise in the Psalms
