Scriptures: Jeremiah 18:1-6, Lamentations 3:21-26
There is one area of your life where you can always have a new beginning: your spiritual life! God wants you to have a fresh start. In the game of golf you can take a "mulligan" or a do-over. You can erase the shot you made and start over, ever wanted to do that in your own life? God allows second chances and new beginnings.
God's compassions never fail and His mercies are new every morning. Compassion is love in action and God's compassion is greater than any of our mistakes, short comings or sins. God promises to forgive if we will repent.
God is the divine potter and He cares about the: choices we make, things we do and the things that happen to us. His power is expressed by the pressure of His hands. Let your life be molded by the nail-scarred hands of Jesus.
We are the clay and the potter is trying to remold us. The proof that He is working on us is when we feel inward conviction about our outward circumstances. We feel the pressure of God's hands upon our lives as we live, grow and change to be more like Him.
Life is the wheel and the potter has two wheels to work with: the bottom for his foot to turn and the surface wheel where the clay rests. The faster the potter spins the bottom wheel, the faster the top wheel turns. The potter determines the purpose and design for the clay.
The Bible tells us that the vessel he made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter so he made it again another vessel, back on the wheel of life. He made what seemed good to the potter to make. God has a purpose and design for your life. God offers a new beginning and each morning is a chance to start fresh and allow God to remake you. God is here to give you another chance to start over.
