"Behold, Hanameel the son of Shalum thine uncle shall come unto thee, saying, Buy thee my field that is at Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it." Jeremiah 32:7
IN JESUS TODAY!
Here we find that Jeremiah was given instructions about what to do next. This after he was put in prison for speaking openly about the future demise of the king (Zedekiah). It was an act of obedience to God by Jeremiah and it caused him to be shut up in prison. It would seem that things were not going very well for Jeremiah and that hope was far removed, however from those same prison walls where there seemed to be no hope, God spoke to Jeremiah giving to him these instructions. So a few questions might come to mind. First, when was the last time that we have heard that one would be cast into prison for speaking the word of God, although this is very possible? Second, when was the last time that we have heard that God told someone to buy a field while they were in prison? God never leaves us, nor forsakes us. He will never give to us more than we can bear without making a way for us to overcome. This word of instruction was given to Jeremiah while in prison because God wanted Jeremiah to know that there was still hope. Hope thou in the Lord, no matter what your situation looks like! This field was going to be use for the restoration of Jerusalem at a time where Jerusalem had become captive to Babylon and king Nebuchadnezzar.
"For thus saith the Lord of host, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land." Jeremiah 32:15 Don't give up when things appear to be hopeless. God will always make a way for you! God has a plan!
NEVER GIVE UP! HOPE THOU IN THE LORD!
