Psalm 7:11

The Lord told Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house. It narrated in Jeremiah 18:6-10, 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 4 But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. 5 Then the word of the Lord came to me. 6Can 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. 7 If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. 9 And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, 10 and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.

God does anything he considers as right and proper. He may destroy also anything that is not essential or beneficial to his grand design. All decisions he makes display his sovereignty over everything. Nothing can thwart and stop him to do right and proper in his eyes.

By faith in Christ, we believe that the grand plan of God for believers is the best life we can ever experience here on earth until eternity. As practical expression of our gratitude for the many great things that God has bestowed in our life, we praise God; we diligently obey him because we trust that his commands are favorable to us. But sometimes, we can be confused when our situations become difficult to overcome. We frequently struggle with relationship, health, studies or finances. Domestic and international problems are too complicated to comprehend. But just like the clay in the hands of a potter, the Lord is shaping us to behave as practical proof of his love, grace and mercy. Can you accept that reality?

Lord Jesus, bless me to obey diligently.
