  • Zebedee Amukanga
    When i went through the chapter i learned of three mainly things;Faith In God,conflict ion of man's faith in God and devil,problem,enemy or evil.
    Elijah stood for faith,Obadia;conflict ion of faith and Ahab;the problem,idol or sadan in our life.
    In many occasions we are got in conflicting situation where;1 Obadia feared man and God. Not making God higher than man.God who can kill and give life.

    For the sakes of the wicked generation of peoples living in the world today,
    which really seems to be the last; that God shows His Glory and mercy one more time in hopes to get more to turn back to Him before the Lord's day, Amen!

    This is a powerful chapter. I love the words: "The word of the Lord came to Elijah". Being totally committed and intimate with our God results in a powerful team which produces powerful results .
