Merciful Faith

2013 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR / Today’s Reading 1 Kings 20,21 / 2 Chronicles 17 / 1 Peter 3

Mercilful Faith

Remember the movie, “THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND the UGLY!” – I think Ahab must fit the bill for 2 out of 3, – I just imagine him BAD & UGLY! When it came to kings in Israel he has to be one of the worst, if not the worst. And yet… look at 1 Kings 21:27-29 [NLT] But when Ahab heard this message, he tore his clothing, dressed in burlap, and fasted. He even slept in burlap and went about in deep mourning. 28 Then another message from the Lord came to Elijah: 29 “Do you see how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has done this, I will not do what I promised during his lifetime. It will happen to his sons; I will destroy his dynasty.”

God was ready to kill him, Ahab repents, and God has mercy. Part of me says, “Unbeliveable!” Part of me says, “Mercy!”

God shows it to the worst of the worst, I faithfully believe He shows it to me!
