Can you help me find a Scripture that someone once told me about? The person told me about the time the prophet Jeremiah (I think? see more below) told God, “I’m tired of being your prophet!” and God replied, “OK. Go ahead and tell the people whatever you want.” at which Jeremiah went ahead and prophesied what God had told him to anyway.
The main point this person was trying to make was “God has ultimate control over our lives” if I understood rightly.
However, I can’t find this story in the Book of Jeremiah. The closest thing I see is around Chapter 20, with the famous “You duped me, O Lord…” part, but that doesn’t seem to me to have the same ingredients as what this person was telling me.
Could it be that this story is not about Jeremiah but some other prophet?
