Jeremiah 18:1-6 “The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 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. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.”
The Potter knows the clay. He has the materials (us) (when clay is in the ground it’s not suitable for use and has to go through a process before it can be used). He has the instrument to mold us, (His Hands.) He has a mission. (To make us into usable vessels.) He has a plan. (To use those vessels for His glory and honor). He is Patient ( I am misshapen and deformed by sin, but as long as I am in the Potters hand, He will continue to mold and shape until He is satisfied with His vessel). Yes the Potter knows the Clay Well.
