1 Kings 22-2 Kings 1

Daily Devotional from 1 Kings 22--

Verses 26-28
And the king of Israel said, “Seize Micaiah, and take him back to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king's son, and say, ‘Thus says the king, “Put this fellow in prison and feed him meager rations of bread and water, until I come in peace.”’” And Micaiah said, “If you return in peace, the Lord has not spoken by me.” And he said, “Hear, all you peoples!”

I love the heart of the prophets. What a temptation to have just lied. 400 prophets had just lied and sounded appealing to the King, the messenger comes and tells Micaiah to speak favorably. All this pressure but Micaiah chose to honor the Lord, he even makes sure to clarify that he was speaking the honest word of the Lord before they took him away in verse 28. What pressing situations are you facing today? Where can you honor the Lord Jesus in the face of adversity? Today as you wrestle with the in and outs of life, choose Jesus.
