Devotional For January 16, 2024

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭15‬

Jesus warns us about false prophets who may appear outwardly righteous but harbor deceit within. It’s a reminder to be discerning in our spiritual journey, recognizing that not everyone who claims to speak for God truly does.

A false can easily be identified. They will not preach repentance or about sin. They will preach prosperity and worldly gain. They will not claim that Jesus is the only way to the Father.

False prophets may deceive with eloquence. Stay rooted in the Word of God and seek discernment. Prayerfully seek guidance from the Holy Spirit to discern truth and guard your heart against misleading influences.


Lord, give me discernment to identify false teachings and false prophets. Help me to stay grounded in Your Word, seeking Your guidance through the Holy Spirit. Protect me from deceptive influences. In Jesus’ name, amen.
