Put your plans in the Potter’s furnace, then wait and see what comes out. What are you expecting or hoping for? I know that your flesh will screech at some of my plans, yet they are for your benefit and my glory.
Church, I cannot look at sin any longer, and my glory is cutting through the dross of the clay, making beauty. Come quickly to me. As you prepare your heart in prayer to go through my furnace remember that I know what you can deal with. Do you trust me?
Jeremiah 18:6 NIV
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.
