G Campbell Morgan on God's Sovereignty
“And the vessel that he made of the clay was marred in the hand of the potter, so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it” (Jeremiah 18:4).
If there were nothing but the figure of the potter with its awe-inspiring revelation of sovereignty, I should be broken and crushed with hopelessness, but there is more. There is the declaration of the ultimate activity of sovereignty, “he made it again.” That was the great message of Jeremiah. Think of him as he watched the people he loved rushing to ruin, feeling all the time in his heart the very anguish of God in the presence of the disaster; and then uttering this high word which seemed as though it never could be fulfilled, “He made it again another vessel. - G.
