Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
Again, we are instructed to check things out with God before acting on a whim or an impulse that seems at the moment like the right thing to do. Where is my inspiration coming from? Is it pure and harmless? Does it help another, or lead only to gain for myself? This is a perfect place for prayer and conversation with God.
Holy Lord, I turn to you today to ask for your Holy Spirit to be bold with me, and to convict me when I am on the wrong track. I never want to follow a false prophet, and never want to miss your guidance. Amen
