Jeremiah 18-20

This week, Jeremiah is instructed to go to a potter’s house to watch how they shape the clay and remold clay that isn’t going according to the potter's design. He is also instructed to smash a pot before the elders of Jerusalem to demonstrate the coming judgment. Jeremiah brings his sorrow before the Lord. Being a prophet has been painful for Jeremiah, and he was arrested. He tells the Lord he would stop if he could. However, the Word of the LORD is like a fire in his bones. In his despair, Jeremiah acknowledges that the Lord fights for him.
