Today is Tuesday in the middle east and parts of Asia, and when I begin to look at the description of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Highest Mountain in the world, the mount Everest. Guess what, none of these heights and greatness is anywhere compared to the most High God, in fact, His greatness, no one can fathom. He is Jehovah El Elyon, the Most High God.
El Elyon speaks of the supremacy of God. He is above all. Now, what does El Elyon mean? The word means the strongest of the strong and the highest of the high. Hinduism and Pantheism speak of God as a part of the universe. But God is not a part of the universe. He is the transcendent God. He is above all. He is the Most High God. Jesus is our El Elyon. Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” God is above all things.
He is above your worries, above your debts and bankruptcy. He is above that troublesome marriage. He is above devils and demons that have tormented your life for ages. He is above that exam you have written for over 3 years. He is above that sin that has held you captive for decades, He is above that deadly disease you have suffered for ages. He is above principalities and above powers. Jesus is our El Elyon.
Psalm 61:2; From the end of the earth will I cry to you, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Psalms 92:1 – IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH
