Scripture: Jeremiah 18:1-10

Sometimes we get the idea that God has a plan for people who are pastors or missionaries or someone who works full time in the church. But the truth is, God has a plan for everybody. Just as the potter controls the clay, God wants to control you. Just as the potter has a plan for the clay and a purpose for the clay God has a plan and a purpose for you. Dr. Merritt's message A New Hope journeys through Jeremiah's experience with the potter to reveal God's plan and purpose for every person.

Psalm 138:8 says, "The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me." God wants to see to it that His plan and purpose is fulfilled in the life of the believer. Just as the clay is nothing without the potter, we are nothing without God. It is only useful in the hands of the potter. Likewise, we are only useful when we are in the hands of God.

"In the story of the potter and the clay, the focus of the story is not on the clay and it is not on the wheel. The focus of the story is on the potter." --Dr. Merritt
