1.The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2.Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
3.Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
4.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.
5.Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

When a sculptor wants to carve out something, he looks at a piece of wood and begins to see what nobody else can see in it.
He can look at a piece of wood and a lion while others may just be seeing fire wood.
God is the Master Sculptor. It does not matter what others see you as, He sees something beautiful in you.
God cans you a royalty (1 Peter 2:9). Ignore what the world calls you and concentrate on what God calls you.
Soon, when the Master Sculptor’s work on you is close to completion, they will see you and marvel.
The only thing that can hinder the Master Sculptor from finishing His work in you is you.
If you don’t cooperate with Him, there is no way He can bring out of you what He sees.
When sculptor is trying to make a lion out of a piece of wood, if the wood breaks where it ought not to break, he could decide to make a cat.
If the wood breaks again, he can decide to make a rat, but if the wood breaks again, he might make fire of it.
Obey every instruction firm God and you will nave a glorious future, notwithstanding what others see you as now.
Surrender totally to God.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 27-28 ; Matthew 21:23-46
1.Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to thee
Take my moment and days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
2.Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love
Take my feet and them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
3.Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from thee.
4.Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
5.Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
6.Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At They feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
