No Man’s Debtor

“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. He will carry off its wealth, plundering everything it has so he can pay his army. Yes, I have given him the land of Egypt as a reward for his work, says the Sovereign Lord, because he was working for me when he destroyed Tyre.” ~ Ezekiel 29:19-20 NLT

God uses people to accomplish His will on the earth. In the Scripture above, God used king Nebuchadnezzar to bring judgment on Tyre. God also used them to bring judgment on His people Judah. Even though the Babylonians were a conquering people, bent on expansion, they accomplished what God had in mind doing what they wanted to do anyway. So for their efforts, God said He was going to pay King Nebuchadnezzar for carrying out His plans.

If God will see to it that a murderous, heathen king is repaid for his work, how much more the child of God? That is why Paul could boldly and adamantly declare to the Corinthians, “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain” (1 Cor 15:58). So, keep on doing good, and the LORD will reward you for your work because He is no man’s debtor.

Heavenly Father, I ask You to help us not to become weary with doing what You have called us to do. But help us to be immovable and steadfast in work for You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
