Has God Used You?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 10-12 today.
God used Assyria against His people Israel. Could Assyria then boast that God approved of them? Did it mean that they did what was right? Oh no, for God merely used them as an instrument to get something done. It did not at all mean He supported them in what they did. In fact, He warned,
“Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger
And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.”
(Isaiah 10:5)
He used them against Israel, but Assyria was next. God had been angry at Israel, but He was also angry at Assyria. We could argue that His anger was greater against Assyria, because the nation no longer exists. Israel abides, but Assyria vanished by God’s anger.
God may use us, but do not interpret that as meaning we are right in His sight.To know of His approval, walk daily in His word.
