Power and Promise of His name

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

Psalm 91:1-2 says this, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, 'My refuge and my fortress, My God in whom I trust.'" In those two verses the Psalmist uses four names for God: Elyon, Shaddai, Jehovah and Elohim. The amazing aspect of those names is that each name reveals to us the power and promise of our Father.

The "Most High" (Elyon) refers to possession. We have a God who owns it all. Whether we acknowledge it or not everything we have belongs to Him. Good to know that all we have is in His hands.

"The Almighty" (Shaddai) refers to provision. God not only possesses, but He also gives. He is the One who supplies all our needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus (Phil.4:9). He loves us so much He shares all that He is with us.
