So last week I began a series titled the “names of God “..
We were able to establish that the bible uses different names and titles to refer to God and emphasise certain aspects of His person and attributes .
Today we will study another name amongst the numerous names of God . This particular name expresses Gods absolute sovereignty and control over the affairs of man . It denotes the our God is still in control of the affairs of the world even though in reality things may seem adverse ..
This word -El Elyon ,occurs 28 times in the bible And occurs 19 times in Psalms alone . El Elyon is first used in
Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.
It also occurs in the book of psalms
I will cry out to God Most High ,
To God who performs all things for me.
Then they remembered that God was their rock ,
And the Most High God their Redeemer.
God is still in control no matter what may be happening . He is our redeemer ,our rock .
He is sovereign and He is in absolute control. Our world may feel like no one is in control, people killing one another , earthquakes ,natural disasters ,lost of loved ones just to mention a few ,but please know that “El Elyon” has perfect control of all that happens in this world and nothing happens that He does not permit . He is the most high God !
