Are You Willing to Yield to God? – Love Worth Finding – January 12

Are You Willing to Yield to God?

JANUARY 12

Thus says the Lord: “Go and get a potter’s earthen flask…. Then you shall break the flask in the sight of the men who go with you, and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Even so I will break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter’s vessel, which cannot be made whole again. … Behold, I will bring on this city and on all her towns all the doom that I have pronounced against it, because they have stiffened their necks that they might not hear My words.’” Jeremiah 19:1, 10-11, 15

When you say, “I’m not going to yield to God,” you are the clay God is describing here in the book of Jeremiah. Clay that was once soft and pliable has now dried and hardened. It cannot be reshaped. It can only be thrown away without being broken and turned into clay again.

There is genuine peril in a life that rebels against God. Some people, when they realize their hidden impurities and stubborn resistance to God, are willing to be broken. They say, “Here I am Lord. I yield myself to you. I repent. Take me, make me, mold me. Give me a new start.” And God will.

On the other hand, you can say, “It’s my life. I’m going to live it the way I want to.  I’m not going to yield.” That’s your privilege.  But if you do that, you’ll be hardened in that position, and once the clay is hardened, the Potter cannot remold it. He cannot remake it.

God offers a second chance. When you read the Bible, you find it’s full of people God gave a second chance to. But always, always they were pliable. They were willing to yield to Him. Search your heart. Are you pliable?
