Some Jews disobeyed the Lord and went to Egypt, bringing Jeremiah with them, believing that they would escape the wrath of Nebuchadnezzar, but the Lord showed that He would send the king of Babylon right to the very place where the Jews had traveled.
The Lord said further,
“When [Nebuchadnezzar] comes, he shall strike the land of Egypt…” (Jeremiah 43:11-13).
Why do people think they can escape the Lord? These Jews tried it and failed. Jonah tried it and failed.
Rather than running from the Lord by disobeying His commands, let us run to Him by obeying Him.
