1 Kings 22:7–But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not yet a prophet of the Lord here that we may inquire of him?”
Neither king Jehoshaphat nor Ahab followed God, yet Jehoshaphat at least knew the difference between a false prophet and a true prophet of God. However, even then, he didn’t follow the word of the true prophet. Do we listen to the true word of God, yet go ahead and do what we want to do anyway? We may know the difference between the true word of God and the false word, but unless we act on the true word, it makes no difference in our life.
Father, today, help me to not only hear Your true word, but act upon it. Give me the courage to follow through even when it may not be telling me to do exactly what I want to do.
