El-Elyon - The Lord Most High

El-Elyon is a name for God. It means "the Lord Most High." This name is found in the Bible in Genesis 14:1-20 and Isaiah 14:13-14 Is God always the Lord Most High in my life? I like to think so, but there are those times when money raises itself high in my life - when I worry about having enough of it to pay the bills or to buy groceries. Does the Lord hold the highest point in my life then? At that moment, my mind is full of worry. It isn't full of the One who created me and who has promised to provide everything that I need. Putting El-Elyon in His rightful place would mean that I trust Him to provide exactly what I need when I need it, even if it is not what I want when I want it.

There are times when a neat and clean house assumes the most high place in my mind. There have been times when a person has taken that place in my heart.
At these times, when my Lord does not hold the highest position in my life, I am being a normal frail human being. God, Who is Creator of us all, understands when I fail and when I turn my mind and heart back to Him - when I confess the sin - He is ready to forgive my failing. When I return "the most high place" to my Lord and Savior and He sits on the throne of my life, my relationship with Him returns to the perfect place it was meant to be. He is the Lord Most High. He is El-Elyon.
