The queen of Sheba complimented King Solomon:
How happy your people must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! Praise be to the Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the Lord’s eternal love for Israel, he has made you king to maintain justice and righteousness (1 Kings 10:8-9, NIV).
In 1 Kings 21:28-29, God explains that Ahab’s punishment will be delayed because of his sincere, humble repentance.
If Ahab can receive forgiveness, so can we!
In 1 Kings 18:20-40, we read about Elijah’s showdown with the prophets of Baal.
Funny how sarcastic Elijah becomes when he senses victory.
In 1 Kings 17, Elijah predicts a drought, relies upon ravens and a widow for sustenance, and raises a boy from the dead.
The idea is that if God says it, then we should do it.
The challenge is that people are the medium of the message, so we need to discern the difference between a genuine word of God and a fraud.
