II Chronicles 18

“But Jehoshaphat said, "Is there not here another prophet of the LORD of whom we may inquire?" (v6). The kings of Judah and Israel had allied together against a common enemy, and they wanted to know if God would favor them. Ahab of Israel’s false prophets said God would indeed help them. But Jehoshaphat insisted they hear from the prophet of Micaiah, known for telling difficult truths to those in power (v7). He declared disaster for the battle and even death for King Ahab.

“I saw the Lord sitting on his throne …” (v18). God’s Word does not simply confirm what we want to hear; it reminds us that the Lord is in charge and we are not.
