    **Introduction:**
    - Begin with a warm greeting and an opening prayer.
    - **Introduction to the Topic:**
    - Introduce Jeremiah 51:20 (NKJV): "You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms."

    **Scriptural Foundation:**
    - **Jeremiah 51:20:**
    - Context: God's message to Babylon through the prophet Jeremiah, indicating His power to use people to accomplish His will.
    - Interpretation: Believers are seen as tools in God's hand, used for His divine purposes.

    - **Ephesians 6:10-18 (The Armor of God):**
    - Context: Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, instructing them on how to stand firm against spiritual forces of evil.
    - Interpretation: Equipping ourselves with spiritual armor prepares us for the battles God calls us to fight.

    - **2 Timothy 2:21 (Being a vessel for honorable use):**
    - Context: Paul’s letter to Timothy, encouraging him to remain pure and prepared for God's work.

    - Strength: Made to endure and inflict damage.
    - Precision: Designed for specific tasks in battle.
    - Purpose: Used by the warrior to achieve victory.

    - We are instruments to achieve God’s victories on earth (2 Corinthians 10:4).

    2. **God's Purpose for His Battle-Ax:**
    - **Accomplishing His Will:**
    - God uses His people to bring about His plans, just as He used Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt and Esther to save her people.
    - **Jeremiah 1:5:** “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
    - **Diverse Roles and Tasks:**
    - Each believer has unique gifts and a role to play (1 Corinthians 12:4-6).
    - **Ephesians 2:10:** “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

    3. **Preparation and Equipping by God:**
    - **Process of Preparation:**
    - God shapes and molds us through experiences, trials, and spiritual disciplines (James 1:2-4).
    - **Jeremiah 18:1-6:** The potter and the clay; God’s sovereignty in shaping our lives.
