Devotional: I’m God’s Cup
Jeremiah 18 gives us an image of how God sees His people. The prophet visits a potter’s house, and sees sees him mold clay into a pot. God says, “Can I not do with my people as a potter does to the clay?” The potter is taking past blemishes, dents, and imperfections, and is making something new and useful and beautiful. When we’re in God’s hands, He can make us into HIs vessels, His instruments, His cups.
