El Elyon: He is Sovereign – 2

Gen. 14:18-20 reads,

And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) And he blessed him and said, ‘Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!’

Melchizedek said that it was really El Elyon, the Most High God, “who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” (v. 20). Everything that happens to us and to the whole world is under the sovereign control of El Elyon. El Elyon is sovereign over all events. He knows the end from the beginning. He controls everything from before the beginning of all things and after the end of all things.

Nothing prevents El Elyon from doing His purposes in your life. Everything works out according to the purposes of His will. Nothing happens outside of the plan of God. Everything happens according to the intent of God.
