The Names of God Part 06 - Jehovah-Elyon

The Most High God, God Most High. As we walk through the challenges of our days it is comforting to remember that God, the Most High God, is also King of the ages. King of the ages! The ruler who presides over every season and every situation on this earth.

Oh yes, the free will of man often casts God’s plans and purposes aside, yet the King of the Age is sovereign. His will will ultimately be accomplished. And as we commit each step to Him He will work things out in our lives for good that will bring praise to His name. Trust Him today.

  • The Great King, The Eternal King, The King of heaven, King of the nations, King of the ages. Psalm 48:2; Jeremiah 10:10; Daniel 3:37; Rev 15:3
  • Prince of the host, Ancient of Days, Prince of princes, King of kings and Lord of lords. Dn 8:11; Dn 7:9; Dn 8:25; 1 Tm 6:15
  • The mountains melt like wax before Him; The heavens declare His glory; Angels do His bidding. Ps. 97:5; Ps. 19:1; Ps. 103:20
  • The God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17)

prayer & reflection

Father in Heaven,

This is an awesome name of Yours, El-Elyon, the Most High God.

You are the God who reigns. You are the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. Angels do your bidding; mountains melt like wax before You. You are the King over all things in my life today. Nothing is too hard for You.

Wow! What a thought! Today I pray that You will call into being the things in our lives that You want to put there. Where there is weariness, call strength into being. Where there is discouragement call hope into being. Where there is a drying up, call life into being.

You know me better than I know myself, Lord. Call into being what You know I need today.

Thank you that You send Your angels to do Your bidding and that Your word promises they camp around those who fear You. Let me sense the campfires today as Your angels are sent to camp around me.

May I feel Your presence and holiness in a profound way today, Lord God. May I draw strength and confidence from the promise of Your word that You will “call things that are not as though they were”. Thank you Lord.

I pray this in the name of Jesus, amen!
