The Potter Does Whatever He Wants With His Pottery

In Jeremiah 18 the LORD sends Jeremiah to a shop where a potter is making pots. But the jar the potter was making did not turn out right, so the potter squashed the jar into a lump of clay and started over again. Then God said:

"...can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter's hands, so are you in my hand. If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned. And if I announce that that I will build up and plant a certain nation or kingdom, making it strong and great, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless that nation as I had said I would." - Jeremiah 18:5-10
