I’ve been going through a 90 day reading plan through http://www.youversion.com. Currently
I’m in the book of Jeremiah. Today I read Jeremiah 42:6 which reads,
” Whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, we will obey the voice of the Lord
our God to whom we are sending you so it may go well with us. We will certainly obey the voice of the Lord our God.” HCSB
When was the last time you said that you would obey the Lord no matter
how unpleasant the request? When God speaks to you, you must move
in order to obey Him. I think this passage is interesting because
so often, it seems, that people expect God to call them
to do something pleasant, and it definitely is easier that way.
But this verse is saying that we need to obey God no matter
what the cost to us.
