Ahab was the most wicked king of Israel. I Kings 20 and 21, however, speak to God’s grace to Ahab. He gave victory to Israel over the Arameans so Ahab would know that “I am the Lord.” The next year God did it again to show the Arameans that God is the God of the mountains and the valleys and so that Ahab would know that “I am the Lord.” Then Ahab and Jezebel murdered Naboth to steal his vineyard. The prophet announced the upcoming disaster on Ahab, but Ahab humbled himself—and God put off the disaster. Amazing grace.
