THE POWER OF HUMILITY

March 12, 2015

Thursday

 

1 Kings 21:29

 

(Ahab)

Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself before me, I will not bring the disaster in his days; but in his son’s days I will bring the disaster upon his house.

 

 

LESSON

 

Ahab’s genuine repentance when he heard of his fate—from Israel’s true King—resulted in God’s relenting and lightening His sentence. Not Ahab but his son Joram would bleed on Naboth’s land in Jezreel.

Sometimes the events of our lives do not seem to make sense. But there are three things God is always doing; bringing people to moral choice 😉 revealing Himself to us and; preparing His people for eternity. Ahab’s provides an example that greed can lead to mistreatment of others and disregard for God’s laws. God treats sinners like us the same way he treated the vile King Ahab – with patience and mercy.

 

Memory Verse: Luke 1:43
