Our walk with the Lord shows others what a life committed to Him looks like, and either guilt or repentance happens.
1 Kings 21 Last week we looked at a series of Ahab's bad decisions and then the pronouncement of judgement on him for them. This week we find King Ahab going home to Samaria to sulk. While he’s there, he notices a man’s vineyard next to his palace. He’s probably seen it 100 times, but today, he decides he wants it. Talk about retail therapy. He’s just been chided for not following through what God asked of him of the Aramaen king, so he wants to...

It’s common to try to cover for our bad decisions. It’s a bad option. EVERY TIME. It doesn’t turn out how we’d hoped, and many times we find our disobedience leading us down paths of further disobedience.
1 Kings 20:26-34 Last week we looked at a battle between Ahab and Ben-hadad. God gives Ahab victory over Ben-hadad. But in this passage in 1 Kings 20, Ben-hadad is rallying. They believe the God behind Ahab is Baal. Baal is the god of Mt. Carmel, and because of Israel’s turn to Baals, Ben-hadad has assumed that Israel’s god is only the god of the mountain. They plot to have their next battle in a valley. They’re banking on Baal being as absent d...

Who has God brought into your life as a trusted confidant and friend in your spiritual journey?

How are you malnourished in your basic needs of diet and rest? Even amidst the craziness your life holds right now, how can you take time to rest?

God is concerned with the state of my heart. He is paying attention, and desires that I would come face to face with HIM, not others who in their silence, rob me of a full life in Christ.

I put faith in the likes of career, circumstances, a silent god, and other well meaning but worthless silver hands.

Maybe instead of defensiveness, we ought to choose repentance.
1 Kings 20:35-43 This story involves a strange request, an unnamed prophet, and extreme consequences. But as I dig a little more deeply, I see a prophet of God, desperately trying to get a message across to his king. An unnamed prophet asks a man near him to strike him. The man refuses, which seems like a polite gesture. I’m not one to go about striking people just because they asked me to. The prophet curses the man by telling him a lion is go...

From rest to war, God's desire to fulfill His promises and reconcile us to Himself shows itself in astounding ways...
1 Kings 20:1-25 This chapter almost feels out of place in our study. There is story after story of Elijah’s involvement in the politics of Israel and then all the sudden there is a story of a battle between nations. And regardless of the evil of Ahab, God promises him a victory. Not for Ahab’s benefit, not for Elijah’s benefit even, but for God’s sake alone. He has made promises down through the ages, and this is yet, another fulfillment of the ...

Now he knew, in this gentle quiet, this was where God would visit him.

"Then the hand of the Lord was on Elijah..." I wish I were better at remembering His hand on my life.

When we’ve delighted to do some work to meet with God, when we have dug trenches around our hearts and asked God to meet us in mysterious ways; when we ask God to answer us, and to burn up the water in the trenches, He delights to meet our prepared hearts.

This troubles my heart for all the times I’m distracted from God, and distract others with matters that have little significance.
