1 Kings 18:1-17
Not the prophet, but the palace administrator of king Ahab. A man of power and influence, in charge of his master’s house. A man involved in the affairs of the world and in the well being of a kingdom. A man who knew how to follow orders and lead people too, who had the trust of the king.
Moreover, Obadiah was also a man who believed in God and feared Him. A man who had proved his faithfulness to the Lord in the past, who had taken risks in order to do what’s right. He saved and protected 100 prophets from the devilish rampage queen Jezebel was on to destroy them all. Then he secretly took care of them for months, feeding them with his own resources. He knew that only the grace of God kept him from being discovered and annihilated along with the spared servants of God.
