Jeremiah was led by God to a potter’s house. There he learned important lessons on how God deals with us, teaches us, and molds us.
God says He carries us on eagles’ wings. He protects us. But he also grows us up and instructs us and often that can be a terrifying process. But we are always brought back to safety. God’s purpose for us is always better than anything we could have planned for ourselves.
Everything in the world operates under tension. All music grows out of tension. If there is too little or too much tension, there is disharmony. God knows our proper tuning point and if we are all tuned by the Master Tuner, we can be a marvelous symphony. Whom God loves He puts under tension.
Nothing in the life of a Christian happens by chance. God is working and moving and doing things in our lives and through the things that affect our lives. God is working all the time to prepare us for his Son’s eventual return. The church is His bride and we are being prepared with purpose.
Regardless of where you are, God will meet you in the midst of your adversity because he has something for you. But if you remain determined to go your own way, he loves you enough to turn you loose. But God has a good path for each of us if we will only listen and obey. God wants to bless us if we will let him.
God wants our life to be a whole, full, happy, abundant life. And the only way that will happen is when we draw close to God. And to draw close to God means our lives must forever be changing to align with His will.
