“God’s Gonna Do What He’s Gonna Do!”

Jeremiah 32:16-27

David P. Nolte

The poet, Cowper, said, “God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform.” God Himself said, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 (NASB).

The song Frank and Brenda sang says that God’s ways are msterious.

“God’s gonna do what He’s gonna do

He’s always up to something new

And you never know just who He’s gonna use

So when He calls your name my friend

Find your place and jump right in

If you want to be in on

What God’s Gonna do.”

Let’s consider the Bible Text and think about God doing what He’s gonna do!

At God’s command, Jeremiah purchased apiece of property, and we read, “Then after I had given the papers to Baruch, I prayed to the LORD: ‘O Sovereign LORD! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you! You show unfailing love to thousands, but you also bring the consequences of one generation’s sin upon the next. You are the great and powerful God, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. You have all wisdom and do great and mighty miracles. You see the conduct of all people, and you give them what they deserve. You performed miraculous signs and wonders in the land of Egypt—things still remembered to this day! And you have continued to do great miracles in Israel and all around the world. You have made your name famous to this day. You brought Israel out of Egypt with mighty signs and wonders, with a strong hand and powerful arm, and with overwhelming terror. You gave the people of Israel this land that you had promised their ancestors long before—a land flowing with milk and honey. Our ancestors came and conquered it and lived in it, but they refused to obey you or follow your word. They have not done anything you commanded. That is why you have sent this terrible disaster upon them. See how the siege ramps have been built against the city walls! Through war, famine, and disease, the city will be handed over to the Babylonians, who will conquer it. Everything has happened just as you said. And yet, O Sovereign LORD, you have told me to buy the field—paying good money for it before these witnesses—even though the city will soon be handed over to the Babylonians.’ Then this message came to Jeremiah from the LORD: ‘I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?’” Jeremiah 32:16-27 (NLT).

Consider three aspects of what God’s gonna do!

I. HE’S GONNA DO WHAT HE’S GONNA DO SOVEREIGNLY:

A. Jeremiah called Him Sovereign Lord.

1. Sovereign Lord: He is above all other authority; unparalleled in rank.

2. He commands, we comply; He orders, we obey; He directs, we do.
