obey first, ask questions later

Jeremiah 32


Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,

Jeremiah really didn't understand why the Lord could be telling him to buy this field from his cousin, when the country was going to be taken over by the Babylonian empire. However, when he knew it was what the Lord wanted him to do, he did it.

After that, he prayed to the Lord and asked Him about how it could be. The Lord explained that He would bring the people of Israel back to their own land again some day because He's the Lord and there's nothing to hard for him.

We should obey what we know the Lord says, even when we don't understand how it could be.
