Divine Design

Divine Design: A devotional for daily instructions and reflections...

“And they said, This is useless, for we must walk after our own devices, and we must each one do the imagination of his evil heart.” — Jer 18:12 (JUB). The nation of Israel in Jeremiah's time was a stiff-necked generation, supercilious and rebellious. They were full of themselves, being deluded by grandeur, self-justification, and unreasonably obstinate towards God's directives. 

God's plan for this rebellious house was to mold and shape into a better future, just like the Potter (Jeremiah 18:6), but personal cravings and self-indulgence misguided them into going in the opposite direction which eluded them of God's plan and purpose for their lives. 

To you that are reading this, God is saying, “...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.” — Jeremiah 18:6 (KJV). God wants to shape you into His divine blueprint in order for you to function as you were designed. 

Are you going to yield or resist? Your present decisions determine your eternal destination. Choose wisely. Prayer: Lord, you are the potter, and I am the clay. Mold me to function according to your divine design for my life.
