Commentary In this commentary of 1 Kings 18, you will be exposed to the realities of Elijah, King Ahab, Obadiah, and God’s awesome power. This chapter of First Kings has several key applications we can make to our christian walk today. Elijah was the “man” of his day. He followed God like no one else in Israel, and God blessed him because of it. 1 Kings 18:1-6 In those days in Israel there was a drought. King Ahab did not want his animals to die so he sent Obadiah out to find food for them. Obadiah was a willing servant of the King even though the King nor his wife was a willing servant of the Lord. In the Bible, it says that we need to respect the rulers God puts in place. Obadiah does just that and so should we, even if we disagree with their thoughts or actions.
