An Attitude of Faith

Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear My words.

Jeremiah 18:2 (KJV)

Notice that God asked Jeremiah to do something that didn't seem particularly important to him. God asked him to move from one point to another before making him hear His word. In fact, it is not the act of “going to the potter's house” that will make him hear the word of God, but rather his obedience without questioning God's reasons.

I'm sure some of you would wonder why doesn't God tell me now what He has to say to me as He speaks to me or why do I have to go to a potter's house to hear His voice. It's simple. When God asks us to do something, it is because He always has a purpose that is beyond our intelligence and understanding. Only our obedience and submission can help us see and understand the reason for His request.

Unlike what you would do, Jeremiah didn't ask questions, he didn't hesitate, he simply obeyed. You know why? Because he likes much more to seek God and follow His will. I would like to highlight for you his obedient attitude during his visit to the potter's house. God didn't tell him that he should say anything to the potter, so he didn't talk to the potter, he didn't even ask him about his work. He was waiting for God who had given him precise instructions. Obedience is an attitude of faith that we must adopt when God speaks to us even if we do not understand His way of doing things.

May the grace of God be with you all.
