DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
2 Chro. 20:19-20
Surely, the Lord God will do nothing but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). Another part of the revelational gifts is the gift of prophecy. Without doubt, God knows everything about everyone He created, and He knows the end of a thing right from the beginning. It is naturally good to know ahead of time about events, the plans of God concerning us and that of the enemies. This will help us to respond to them appropriately. However, it is advisable to stick more to the words and promises of God rather than scouting here and there for prophecies. You are God’s handiwork and He knows exactly how you will end even before He created you. May you end well in Jesus’ name. Mind you, you must be cautious enough to scrutinise every prophecy. (Read 2 Chro. 18:21 and 1 Cor. 12:10). Jehoshaphat would have been doomed if he had relied on what the fake Ahab’s prophets said.
Point of Emphasis: Do not be a victim of fake prophecies.
Prayer Point: God, always reveal Your will to me in every area of my undertakings.
