1 Kings 22:13-20 NIV

(Micaiah prophesied Ahab’s death but Ahab rejected God’s word thru Micaiah. Ahab said, “but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad.” 1 Kings 22:8 NIV

1 Kings 22:13-20 NIV

“The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.” But Micaiah said, “As surely as the Lord lives, I can tell him only what the Lord tells me.” When he arrived, the king asked him, “Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or not?” “Attack and be victorious,” he answered, “for the Lord will give it into the king’s hand.” The king said to him, “How many times must I make you swear to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of the Lord?” Then Micaiah answered, “I saw all Israel scattered on the hills like sheep without a shepherd, and the Lord said, ‘These people have no master. Let each one go home in peace.’ ” The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Didn’t I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?” Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing around him on his right and on his left. And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ “One suggested this, and another that.”

Will I receive God’s Word?


Psalms 32:1,7-8,11 NKJV

[1] Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.

[7] You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah [8] I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

[11] Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Will I be devoted to the Lord?


Jeremiah 51:15-19 NIV

““He made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses. “Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. The images he makes are a fraud; they have no breath in them. They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish. He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including the people of his inheritance— the Lord Almighty is his name.”

Will I worship the Lord Almighty?
