The Lord Uses People Even If They Do Not Know It

Of the king of Assyria, the Lord said,
I will send him against an ungodly nation,
And against the people of My wrath
I will give him charge,
To seize the spoil, to take the prey,
And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
Yet he does not mean so,
Nor does his heart think so;
But it is in his heart to destroy,
And cut off not a few nations.
(Isaiah 10:6-7)
God used Assyria against Israel, making him the instrument of God’s wrath, but those last four lines show that the king of Assyria had no idea that he was so used. He thought that he just did whatever he wanted to do.
God uses you, whether you acknowledge it or not. Why not submit to Him and be a willing servant of His?
