Christian Devotional – August 17, 2016

Read 1 Kings chapter 22

VERSE:

1 Kings 22:5–But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the Lord.”

TRUTH:

This was great advice for one king to give to another. Unfortunately, one king wanted to follow God and the other did not. Jehoshaphat, even though he suggested getting advice, he didn’t follow through on the advice that the prophet eventually gave them. He allowed himself to be convinced to go against it. First, are we even seeking God’s plan and counsel on what to do. Second, once he learn it, are we doing it? We must realize that we must do both if we are to continue in obedience to Him.

RESPONSE:

Father, I desire to know what You have for me and I will seek to not just hear, but also to obey. I thank You for revealing Yourself and Your plan to me. Help me and give me the courage to live it out every day.
