Jeremiah was told to arise and go down to the potter’s house so that he could hear what the Lord had for him.  
He had to make preparations to receive the blessings the Lord had in store for him. 
Oftentimes we are required to do the same. Be willing to listen, speak, move, be still…whatever the Lord requires. He is setting you up for continued blessings down the road.

Jeremiah 18:2
