Our God is the Mighty God whose name is above every circumstance that has a name on assignment to kill, steal and destroy God’s presence in our life. Our God is our Mighty God because He takes care of His children regardless of our faithfulness. When it looks like we are walking through the valley of the shadows of death, we do not have to fear evil because our God is with us changing our circumstances to workout for our good. God’s heart towards His children is to give us His Amazing Grace when we do not deserve it and to give us His mercy during the times we do not deserve it. His Amazing Grace is the revelation of His higher and heavenly thoughts towards us guiding us in His grace and truth making us more than conquerors. His mercy is His unmerited protection from an enemy who wants to kill, still and destroy us.
The word of God tells us that Christ is highly exalted above every name (Philippians 2:9-11). This means whatever name is trying to kill, steal and destroy our peace and joy has to submit to the name of Christ. In His name lives God’s grace and mercy that works to change our circumstances. When we labor to enter God’s rest, we are laboring to enter God’s presence where every circumstance has to submit to the name of Christ that is above every name. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name of sickness. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name of fear. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name known as addiction. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name known as debt. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name known as heartbreak. The name of Christ is above every circumstance that has a name known as depression. Whatever circumstance that is presenting itself to you has to bow to the name that is above every name.
Therefore, fight to enter the secret place of and abide under the shadow of the Almighty God (Psalms 91:1). In God’s presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore. In God’s presence is the protection of God where storms have to be still (Mark 4:39). In God’s presence is the protection of God where mountains have to move (Matthew 17:20).
