God can use even the pagans

Jeremiah 51:20 Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

God warns His people that He will judge them in Jeremiah. He then tells a pagan king and country that He will use them as His weapons of war.

I find this very interesting. God will use a pagan even to discipline His people and others.

There are no accidents taking place in our lives. God is at work. He is using everything that happens in our lives for His honor and glory. Romans 8:28-29. We think of them as coincidences and He thinks of them as His working in our lives.

How are we responding to different things that God allows or brings to pass in our lives? Do we recognize His hand? Do we look to Him to find out what He wants and what He is doing in our lives?

Could it be that what is happening right now is God working in us to strengthen us and prepare us to better serve Him?

This verse should make you realize that God is at work even in things you wouldn’t expect or think about. Let’s seek His face and honor Him in all that we do!
