2 Peter 1:21
"For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." ESV
So many prophets out there, we know that some of them are true prophets of God and some are false prophets. The false prophets are beautiful people, who say lovely things that make us feel good. People flock to them, paying money and driving long distances to hear what they have to say. True prophets of God speak only those words the Holy Spirit puts within them. Some of their words will bring joy and comfort. Some of them will sting our hearts and convict us. Those who don't really want to know the truth will close their ears and walk away. That's what they did to Jesus when He spoke the truth He heard from the Father.
Heavenly Father, we live in a world that craves feeling good and being self-satisfied. Help us to recognize those people who say they are proclaiming Your Word, but are only trying to win the approval of others. We long for Your Truth. Give us willing ears. In Jesus' name, Amen.
