Great difference. What a blessing to be a man separate for the Lord, totally at His disposal! When the Lord can call you and send you with His message! Elijah was a man like this. What a difference between Elijah and Obadiah! Obadiah feared Ahab more than he feared God. Obadiah never confronted Ahab‚Äôs sins! The Lord could not send Obadiah to rebuke sin. The 100 prophets learned from Obadiah compromise and fear of man. Not one of them confronted Ahab! The Lord could not send them, but He sent Elijah! To what profit is a silent prophet, a silent and fearful preacher? Elijah saw well that no one in Israel stands with him faithful in confronting the idolatry of Ahab and of the nation, so he said he had no colleague in this ministry (v. 22). The Lord cannot use people like Obadiah. But he can work through people like Elijah. There is no place for compromisers in the building of God‚Äôs kingdom!
