What a statement. "So be it." Honestly, I have to admit that when I think of how I've used the phrase before, the act of humbly submitting to God's calling isn't what comes to mind. :)
However, in Jeremiah 11:1-5, I see the following:
vs 1-5 God asks Jeremiah to relay His message to the men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem
v 5...."Then answered I, and said, so be it, O Lord. ---> Jeremiah willingly submitted to God, regardless of what it would cost him personally. As a result, in v6, God gave Jeremiah more words to say.
I wonder how many times I question God when I should be just saying "So be it, O Lord."? What blessings do I miss out on?
