August 28 – Devotional: 100% True

Can you believe this? The AccuWeather company recently debuted a new forecast.  No, it was not a 14-day or a 30-day forecast, but a 45-day forecast. They announced, “The 45-Day Forecast is yet another way that AccuWeather is helping its customers plan for the special events in their lives through superior forecasting information,” said Steven Smith, AccuWeather’s Chief Digital Officer.

Planning a special event 45 days in the future based on their weather forecast? When these guys can’t even get this afternoon’s weather correct? Which I guess is okay concerning a weather forecast, but a totally different thing when it comes to speaking on behalf of God.

In the Old Testament there were lots of people who claimed to be prophets speaking on behalf of God. They would scare the people with messages of destruction or win the favor of people with stories of God’s favor. It would often confuse the people. In Deuteronomy the people were told how they would be able to know whether or not the prophet was accurate.

It says in verse 22 of Deuteronomy 18: “When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.”

In other words, God’s prophecies come to pass 100% of the time. You see, they are more than prophecies, they are actually promises and every promise in the Word of God will come to pass.

Why not spend some time reading His word today? You might be surprised at what the Lord has forecast.

Deuteronomy 18:22

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.”
