Bible Reading: 1 King 19:1-10
Memory verse: 1 King 18:4, “For so it was, while Jezebel massacred the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah had taken one hundred prophets and hidden them, fifty to a cave, and had fed them with bread and water.”
King Ahab and Jezebel are considered the most wicked couple that ever ruled Israel, yet Obadiah, their palace supervisor, was a devout follower of the Lord. This is worthy of note and points out that God desires that we represent Him in a good way even while working under God haters. We are challenged to protect God’s interest even under evil governments, like Obadiah did. Christians must aspire to hold positions of influence in every area of the society. Ministry is not just about being behind the pulpit, but taking care of God’s business in whatever position God assigns you. No matter how dark the world around us is, it is not an excuse not to work with the Lord. Never think that you are the only one serving God because sin abounds in your society. There are many who serve God secretly, so as to preserve the life of others. Ask God to connect you to them.
