SCRIPTURES: Deuteronomy 10: 17 For the LORD [JEHOVAH] your God [EL] is God [EL] of gods, and Lord of lords, a GREAT GOD [EL HAGGADOL], a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: Nehemiah 8:6 And Ezra blessed THE LORD, THE GREAT GOD [JEHOVAH EL HAGGADOL]. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.

THOUGHT: The word HAGGADOL is an adjective translated as ‘great’ and used to refer to the size or significance of something or someone. It is used of the size of natural things as well as of the spiritual significance of people or events (see Deut 10:21; Psalm 71:19; Psalm 106:21; Psalm 145:8; Isaiah 54:7; Jeremiah 32:19; Nahum 1:3). What is being communicated in the name for God is the understanding that The LORD, [JEHOVAH] is far greater in power and significance than any other ​’​god​’​ or system of religion and worship. Think of the ​GREAT Exodus of the children of Israel from Egypt, David’s many ​GREAT deliverances, Elijah’s ​GREAT miracles, the ​GREAT and unprecedented ​return of Israel to their own land, the ​GREAT salvation provided by the sacrifice of Jesus and the ​GREAT power of the infilling of the Holy Spirit in your life. JEHOVAH, YOUR LORD IS THE GREAT GOD, JEHOVAH EL HAGGADOL.

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, JEHOVAH EL HAGGADOL – MY LORD, THE GREAT GOD: I trust in You forever, because You are ​GREAT​ and ​GREATLY to be praised. As my Creator and Redeemer You deserve to be esteemed, respected, honored and obeyed. I thank You for the times You have stepped in and saved me from consequences I could not avoid on my own. I give You the honor, respect and reverence because You are THE LORD, MY GREAT GOD, JEHOVAH EL HAGGADOL. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

Additional Reading: Ezra 5:8 Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of THE GREAT GOD, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands.
Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; THE GREAT GOD hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
