Whatever He Says TO YOU,DO IT.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
When the remnant of Judah approached Prophet Jeremiah to pray and inquire from the Lord for them on what to do and where to go. Prophet Jeremiah agreed and promised that he will tell them everything that the Lord tells him (Jeremiah 42: 1-6)

In Jeremiah 42:19-22 (NLT) it reads, “Listen, you remnant of Judah. The Lord has told you: Do not go to Egypt! Don’t forget this warning I have given you today. For you were not being honest when you sent me to pray to the Lord your God for you. You said, Just tell us what thee Lord our God says, and we will do it! And today I have told you exactly what He said, but you will not obey the Lord your God any better now than you have in the past”

In the above scripture, Prophet Jeremiah lamented that the remnant of Judah were not being honest when they asked him to pray to the Lord for them. They had earlier promised to do whatever the Lord tells them through the Prophet. Notwithstanding, when Jeremiah gave them the Lord’s message, they still went ahead to do what was in their heart. In other words, their minds were already made up on what they wanted to do even before going to Jeremiah for prayers.

It is important to note that the remnants of Judah suffered for choosing to do what was in their heart instead of obeying God’s instructions through Jeremiah.

My brothers and sisters, are there not occasions we go to men of God to seek advice or for prayers, but deep within us, we have made up our minds on what we want to do regardless of what they tell us.

My brothers and sisters, the only way everything will turn out well for us is when we make up our minds to obey whatever God tells us regardless of whether we like it or not.

I pray the grace to always obey God’s instructions not minding whether you like it or not receive now in the name of Jesus Christ

Wishing you a lovely week
