Molly’s Minute: Clay In The Potter’s Hands

July 26, 2021

In Jeremiah chapter 18, God has something He wants to show Jeremiah. So, He tells Jeremiah to go and see a potter.

Jeremiah walks into the potter’s home and sees that the vase the potter is spinning on his wheel is imperfect and misshapen.

But the potter keeps working on that vase.

He keeps spinning the wheel and reshaping the clay, and he makes it into a new, perfectly symmetrical vase.

You and I are works in progress—clay on a wheel. Sometimes we get misshapen.

But our potter never stops working on us.

Do you need to experience God’s reshaping power? This prayer is for you.

Father, you are my potter, and I am clay in your hands. Thank you for never giving up on me, no matter how misshapen I get. Today, I ask you to keep working on me, God. Help me to feel you reshaping me more and more into what you want me to be.

In Jesus’ name,


Jeremiah 18:6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.”
