For a few more days we are sharing one of our songs, Lord, We Will Bless Your Name for the devotion.
Our focus today is on God as El Gibbor. The name El Gibbor means 'Mighty God.' He is all powerful and omnipotent. God has so many names to describe His character and who He is.
One of the names Israel knew God was as El Gibbor because He promised to help them when they were facing battles from their enemies. Knowing Him to be a Mighty God gave them the courage to fight and trust in God.
Our God is a Mighty God who promises to be with us when we call upon His name. We do not have to be afraid of anything. He created everything and holds creation in His hands. Through the gift of Jesus He demonstrates His greatness. Nothing in all of creation is greater than our Mighty God; nothing can separate us from His love.
Whatever you are facing today, call upon the name of El Gibbor. He is more than able to help you.
For unto us a child is bom, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God [El Gibbor], The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isa. 9:6)
The Lord your God is in your midst, a Mighty [Gibbor] One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by his love; He will exult over you with loud singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)
Father, we thank you that you are our Mighty God. We trust You in all areas of our lives and trust You with all of our hearts. Amen.
