El Elyon

The God Most High

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 beyond or above the range of normal or physical experience. He is above all. He is the Most High God. Jesus is our El Elyon. Colossians 1:16-17 says “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” God is above all things. Jesus is our El Elyon.

A - Adoration:

Praise God out of Colossians 1:16-17 for His supremacy. To aid your worship you may listen to and/or sing Above All Powers.

C - Confession:

Confess those times where you think YOU are “over all” and forget God’s supremacy.

T - Thanks:

Thank God that He is over all things; including your anxieties (perhaps list these as you give thanks. When done write in large letters over your anxieties the words “The God Most High”).

S - Supplication:

Invite God to be supreme in your life and in the lives of people you encounter. Pray that He will be lifted high through our church and all her activities. To supplement your prayer time, you may want to also do the YouVersion devotion "Six Days of the Names of God".

To remind yourself of why we're studying the names of God and for a list of prayer meetings which you may consider joining, please read our Introductory Post.
