Jeremiah 18:6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel. . If we remain like soft clay in the Master Potter's hands, we will not be crushed or broken when things don't go our way. We'll allow God in his wisdom to mold us, reshape us, and redirect us according to his plan, as he sees fit.
