Conflict of Kings, Part 12: Ahab's Surprising Choice

Pastor Evan Brown continues in the series, “Conflict of the Kings,” through a look at the life of King Ahab in I Kings 16:29-34 and I Kings 20-22.  Ahab was more evil than any other king that had reigned before him.  Yet for a short season, Ahab listened to the Lord and followed His instruction.  As a result, God miraculously helped Israel win the battle over its enemies.  In the end though, Ahab turned away from God sinking into self-pity and anger.  From Ahab’s life, we learn that as believers, we are to be people who leverage for good our position of influence in the world to bring glory to God.  If we call upon the name of the Lord, He will answer us. God is not limited in our limited situations. When we follow the Lord, we can experience the excitement of bringing the extraordinary into our ordinary circumstances and bring God glory.
