“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things” (2 Peter 1:20).
We did not create ourselves and we have no certainty what tomorrow will bring. Any prophecy must come from outside. But beware of those who call themselves prophets. They must be one hundred percent correct and in complete harmony with Scripture. One thing that is false, just one variation from Holy Scripture, and they are no prophet from God. We did not invent this. It was revealed to us in Scripture through the Holy Spirit.
Lord, I love the things that titillate my ears. Help me to not fall prey to fanciful words that are not true. Hold me fast to the goodness of Your grace and mercy so that I would now and forever know truth when I hear it. Guide me in the way of everlasting life now and forever. Let me speak only what You have given me to know. Help me to hear as Your Spirit speaks.
Lord Jesus, as an example for us, You said that You only spoke what the Father gave You to speak. If You, being Lord, only speak what the Father gives You, how much more should we seek to only speak what You give us to say. Let my lips be governed by you and be acceptable to You. Let my heart hear when You speak. In all things teach me truth. Your Word is truth. You are truth. Guide me in truth. Amen.
