SCRIPTURE: “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” – Psalm 23:3
God instructed Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house and there He taught him a great lesson that we also ought to learn. Many individuals, families and nations are sick spiritually and physically. They need the touch of the Great Potter. Many are in spiritual bondage and the enemy is not ready to let them go free. They are being tormented day and night. Individuals, families and nations are also in captivity. They are not where God wants them to be. These also need the touch of the Great Potter.
Why do individuals, families and nations need the touch of the Great Potter? It is because their lives and destinies have been marred or destroyed by the enemy. Many have been victims of terrible spiritual attacks. The enemy has visited them in their dreams and stolen their health, peace and joy. They are what some people call the living dead. Marriages that are being troubled by the devil should be taken to the Great Potter for a new touch. Similarly, careers, businesses, finances that are wobbling and struggling need the Potter’s touch for healing and restoration.
The Sovereign One who rules in the affairs of men and determines the destinies of nations is the Great Potter. He is also the Great Restorer. In the potter’s house, God showed Jeremiah how a beautiful work of art got marred in the hand of the potter. To be marred is to become blemished or destroyed. When the potter realised this, he did not throw away the marred work. Rather, “he made it again into another vessel that was beautiful in his sight.
After Jeremiah had watched this scene, God spoke to him. He said, “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 lesson here is clear: as the clay is a raw material for creating or producing what the potter has conceived in his heart, so are we, as individuals, in the hand of God. Similarly, so are our marriages, careers, businesses, health, finances and nations. If they become sick or altered from what God originally made, we should take them back to God, the Great Potter, for a touch of recreation and
- Father, You are the Great Potter, remould me now, in the name of Jesus.
- I present every marred areas of my life to You, Father, help me, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of restoration, attend to dry bones in my life, in the name ot Jesus.
- Evil powers assigned to recreate my life and destiny, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to dislocate my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Weapons of the enemy fashioned to defile or pervert my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, have mercy on me, in the name of Jesus.
