Day ~16~ Our Sovereign Lord

Jehovah-sabaoth literally means the Lord Almighty. It speaks of the sovereignty of God over all the powers of the universe. The second stanza from Martin Luther’s hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” says, “Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing, Were not the right man on our side, The man of God’s own choosing. Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He, Lord Sabbaoth His name, From age to age the same, And He must win the battle.” David understood the greatness of God when he went against Goliath with five smooth stones and a sling. David said to Goliath, “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.” Oh, that each of us would have this same conception of God in the  battles we face daily. Like David, tell the that mighty giant, that you come in the name of the Lord of Host, in the name of the sovereign God, who is strong and mighty in battle.

But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. Isaiah 49:25

You are a winner and not a loser, You can do all things, through Christ who gives you strength.

Shalom  – WDI
