    Notice how what King Ahab did to provoke the lord, afterwards the lord sent a great draught through the hands of Elijah. Ahab later finding Elijah with the phrase "Art thou he that troubleth Israel? " 1 Kings 18 17 It 's funny how Evil rulers don 't see their repercussion of their acts, and then in turn try to blame everyone else. It 's a true saying Evil rulers will have Evil servants. But Thanks be unto God we are God 's servants and not the servant of Men. Therefore he can feed us , even in draught, as he did the Widow woman that gave Elijah the cake. next chapter She thought more on God 's servant than even herself or her son. Obey God and keep his commandments for David said he has never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread.

    The Lord's awesome wisdom is unquestionable. HE all knowing, is proven when HE says, HE would do and its done. Since ADAM and EVE, The LORD just wants us to obey and follow HIS WORD, HE do not want ROBOTS, we do have FREEWILL. As we see the EVIL KINGS that are leading the children deeper into sin, Yet GOD's Will, will be done, when its all said and done.
