Read 1 Kings 20 today.

This chapter includes the story of Israel (the northern tribes) being attacked by Ben-hadad, the king of Aram. He attacked Israel twice, and the Lord defeated him both times. The reason the Lord did this was not because Ahab was a great king of Israel. Nor was it to help Ahab solidify his position as the king of Israel. According to what we read, the Lord defeated Ahab’s enemy so that Ahab would who the Lord really is. As the king of Israel, Ahab should have known, but he did not.
God goes to great lengths to get our attention. Sometimes we are willing to take notice, and other times we are not. I wonder what we would write if we took some time to write down the many ways God has tried to get our attention, tried to get us to recognize and acknowledge Him.
1 Kings 20:13, 28 NLT
Then a certain prophet came to see King Ahab of Israel and told him, “This is what the LORD says: Do you see all these enemy forces? Today I will hand them all over to you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
[28] Then the man of God went to the king of Israel and said, “This is what the LORD says: The Arameans have said, ‘The LORD is a god of the hills and not of the plains.’ So I will defeat this vast army for you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
Exodus 5:1-2 NLT
After this presentation to Israel’s leaders, Moses and Aaron went and spoke to Pharaoh. They told him, “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Let my people go so they may hold a festival in my honor in the wilderness.” [2] “Is that so?” retorted Pharaoh. “And who is the LORD? Why should I listen to him and let Israel go? I don’t know the LORD, and I will not let Israel go.”
