He Makes All Things New

God told Jeremiah to go down to the potter's house. When Jeremiah got there, he said he saw the potter "making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make." - Jeremiah 18:1-4

This is where I am, where we are as an organization. Where you may be in your personal life or career.

We can't be afraid to begin again, nor afraid to yield to God's will to make us over again. Sometimes life demands it. God knows the way we should take and what it will take to get us there. Even if that means making us over to start over.

Thank you for your patience and prayers as we transition, shift gears and in some cases break the mold.

God created time but exists outside of time, yet orchestrates the times. In our personal and professional life, we must have ears that hear and be attuned to what God is doing in us, the new thing He has prepared to do through us; and, where he is leading us.

We never want to live our life where the Spirit of God "used to be." Yesterday's anointing won't do for today's challenges. 

David was anointed three times and had to wait seven years before being crowned Israel's king.

If your life is stale and your career has stalled, perhaps it is time to go back to God for a fresh anointing.

The power is in the anointing, by way of the Holy Spirit, not in our title by way of our position. 

As Jeremiah was watching the potter remake the vessel, God said to Jeremiah, "Look, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!" 

The same is true for you and me. Trust the Potter. You are in his hands. Don't fight to stay where you are, when where you are no longer is where God wants you to be.

He makes all things new and if you have not yet noticed, the whole world is in a new season.

Soli Deo gloria (glory to God alone),
