“O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.” (Jeremiah 18:6)
What are you made of? Clay!
Clay has no plans of its own. It has no dreams for glory, not even for service. Clay is clay and it is even reluctant to perform its own given work, it is simply clay! Clay is moldable, pliable, subjective to creation, desiring a creator, and totally submissive to the will of its master. God CAN and WILL mold us into whatever He needs and requires of us to be.
Question to ask yourself, when there is an assignment requiring humility, are you willing to become that servant, be humbled and meet the needs of the body of Christ, as clay?
“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.” (1 Cor 4:7)
It is not a heroic being clay. It is not spectacular, it is not glorious. It’s not something one would brag about, except for the fact that you are willing and ready to do and be exactly what the Lord wants you to be, a yielded pieces of clay.
