The city of Jerusalem was "besieged" by Babylon's army, and Jeremiah was in prison. Things looked hopeless! Jeremiah's prophecies had warned of this coming destruction.
Yet, right in the middle of all this, we read that Jeremiah bought some property. Why? The Chaldeans were going to overthrow the city, burn it down, and take the people into captivity. It seems like Jeremiah should have saved his money.
But God promised in today's verse to bring His people "safely" back to Jerusalem. Jeremiah's purchase shows his belief in that promise.
It is one thing to SAY we believe God's promises, but do we put ACTIONS to our words? In the midst of a severe drought, Charles Finney grabbed his umbrella, went to church, and prayed for rain. During that church service, his prayer was answered! What a good reminder to step out in faith. God will take care of His people!
It is one thing to pray for rain. It is quite another to bring your umbrella. — Author Unknown
