For a couple more days we are sharing one of our songs, Lord, We Will Bless Your Name for the devotion.
In the bridge of the song, the name El-Elyon is used. He is El Elyon–the Most High God. This name identifies God as the sovereign ruler of the universe.
As Sovereign Lord, God is in control of everything. Everything is His and belongs to Him. It may feel sometimes like no one is in control, but know that El Elyon has perfect control of all that happens in this world and nothing happens that He does not permit. He does as He pleases and He is good.
One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. He is El Elyon - Most High God.
Sometimes we don't know why certain things happen or don't happen. If you are in that place right now, trust in the goodness of our Sovereign Lord.
Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High who has delivered your enemies into your hand. (Genesis 14:19-20)
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Father, thank you for being our Sovereign Lord. Nothing happens without your knowledge or permission. We ask You to speak Your wisdom to our hearts and minds to trust in Your goodness. Amen.
