“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away.” -Elvis Presley
King Ahab of Israel had 400 false prophets tell him that he’d win in battle, but before King Jehoshaphat of Judah would align himself with Israel he said, “Let’s find out what the Lord says” (2 Chon. 18:4). The prophet Micaiah was called upon and told to agree that the king would have victory. Micaiah said, “I will say only what God says.” Micaiah prophesied that the king would die and Israel would lose. Micaiah was imprisoned and his prophecy was proven correct. The lesson for Micaiah is for you and me, too: there is no greater freedom than telling what is true. God needs a new generation of truth-tellers willing to risk everything for the sake of the gospel. Boldly tell others what God’s Word says and through you God will change the world.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32, ESV).
