• The Fall of Babylon Devotional

    Jeremiah 50:1–20

    Much of Jeremiah is concerned with God’s use of Babylon to judge His people. In that judgment, we can see evidence of an occasion when the wicked prospered. Yet we also see that the prosperity was not evidence that the Lord was pleased with Babylon. This is an important principle for us to remember when we see others succeeding even though they are wicked. Their success, however real it may appear, is only temporary—just as Babylon’s was.
