Names of God: El Elyon

Past Sunday Key Verse:
“Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High who delivered your enemies into your hand.” (Genesis 14:19-20 NIV)

Abram (who later became Abraham) was a Godly man who faced a challenging task involving a family member. While numerous kings all around him fought for land and power, Abram trusted El Elyon, or the Most High God, to secure his efforts against the enemy kings. In today’s lesson, we learned how El Elyon protected His servant, Abram, and how we should also respond to the exalted God we serve. The invading kings recognized that God, or El Elyon, is above earthly circumstances and comes to the help of His people. We too can trust that El Elyon will help us because He is the Most High God. Scriptures used: Genesis 14:11-20

Check out a book from the library about outer space. Look through the pictures with your child as you discuss God’s exalted status over all of creation. Invite your child to comment about what he or she likes the most and even talk about other amazing displays of the Most High. Remind your child that God’s name “El Elyon” means “the Most High,” so He is in complete control!

Thank You, El Elyon, for being the Most High God! Because You are exalted, we can trust that Your plan is perfect and obey Your commands. Thank You for loving us and sending Jesus to die for our sins. Amen.
