Show Us the Way

(I originally wrote and posted this to my previous blog on 02/28/2007.)

Reading: YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 40-42

Jer 42:1 Then all the commanders of the army, and Yohanan son of Qareah, and Yezanyah son of Hoshayah, and all the people, from the least to the greatest, came near
Jer 42:2 and said to Yirmeyahu the prophet, "We beg you, let our petition be acceptable to you, and pray for us to יהוה your Elohim, for all this remnant, for we are few left of many, as your eyes see us.
Jer 42:3 "And let יהוה your Elohim show us the way in which we should walk and the word we should do."

Most of Israel was taken into exile into Babylon, but the remnant that was left went to YirmeYahu and asked him to pray to YHWH for them and ask Him to "show us the way in which we should walk and the word we should do." It seems they finally got the picture that YHWH was in charge and decided to stop going their own way and now finally wanted to walk in His Way.

Presumably YirmeYahu sought YHWH right away, but the Scriptures tell us that it was 10 days before he received an answer:

Jer 42:7 And after ten days it came to be that the word of יהוה came to Yirmeyahu.

This brought to mind the parable of the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8). We need to pray like that--"crying out day and night to Him"--until He answers.
