Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Flee from the midst of Babylon, and every one save his life! Do not be cut off in her iniquity, for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He shall recompense her. – Jer 51:6

God will tell you when to stay, and when to flee. In the past, God’s prophet had told Israel to stay put, and even to pray for the land of their captivity:

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace. – Jer 20:7

Now, however, He told them to get out! It would have been unprofitable for Israel to flee when God told them to stay, or to stay when God told them to flee.

Are you stuck in an uncomfortable situation? Not sure whether you should stay or go? Maybe you should stay; but maybe you should go! Ask God. He will tell you what to do.


Father, lead and guide me wherever You want me to go. I trust You, with all of my heart, in Jesus’ name!
