“He says,‘You are my battle-axe, My weapon of war; and with you I shatter nations, and with you I destroy kingdoms’” (Jeremiah 51:20).
Today it is a term utilized mostly in slang form but, historically, a battle-axe is a weapon specifically designed for warfare; according to scripture, for the destruction of kingdoms. As believers we are designed for combat not comfort. However, when we avail ourselves to God, and allow ourselves to become His weapon in the world, what we soon discover is that the greatest kingdoms to be overcome are the ones we have built for ourselves. Seek first the Kingdom of God.
