One of the earliest names for God in the Bible is God Most High (Genesis 14:18-20). It’s an awesome description. No matter what we can see or imagine…He’s higher, bigger, and stronger. The sweeping narrative of the Old Testament reveals God’s awesome power in many different ways, but sadly, the Hebrews often forgot. They simply settled for thinking of Him as just another “god”.
What about you? When you pray, what do you see? Is it the image of Him “high and lifted up” in awesome glory as Isaiah, Ezekiel and John described? Do you see Him as God Most High, or someone just barely big enough to handle a pressing crisis? Sure, He’s up to the task, but what if He wants to take you to a place even greater than simply managing your current situation? Trust Him today to be who He says He is:
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor My ways your ways. For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9
How big is God…in your eyes?
