When the LORD is involved, things change! Ahab, who was not a good king, received God’s help when Syria came against Israel. Ben-Hadad the king of Syria, with 32 other allied kings, seemed an unstoppable force. When Ben-Hadad threatened Northern Israel it looked as good as over, but surprisingly, a prophet of the true God spoke to Ahab. God promised to deliver Ahab and the Israelites, and even told Ahab how to go about the battle. Intriguingly, Ahab who famously led people away from God, actually did what God had said. It seems Ahab’s faith and loyalties were ever shifting. Nevertheless, God was showing the Northern 10 tribes of Israel that He was still their God. This long and interesting story is recorded in 1 Kings 20. As we read it, remember that God is still alive and well. If we choose to follow His ways, He will rescue us.
