Psalm 7:9-17. David concludes with one of the revealed names of our great and awesome God.. He writes, "" I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High." The Most High God is El Elyon in the Hebrew. This name fo God is found twenty three times in the book of Psalms and is also used throughout the Old Testament. The name emphasizes God's supremacy above all others and all circumstances. It reveals His power to deliver us from all trouble and to use our trouble for His divine purpose and plans. In the midst of pain and trouble, David worshiped the Most High God. He acknowledges that the Most High God sees all things, is in control of all things, and brings His justice to all things. In the book of Romans, we are reminded that the Most High God can use all things for our good and for His glory with the purpose of CONFORMING us to His righteous Son. Romans 8:28-29. When we are in the pit , we have the best view of our Lord. Today , you may feel helpless, but you are NEVER hopeless. Our steadfast hope is in the Most High God, who will NEVER VACATE His throne, its so assuring to know that we have a Friend in high places. We echo the words of David, who wrote, " for the righteous God tests the hearts and minds. My defense is of God, who saves the upright in heart vv9-10. The Most High God knows the righteous and sees them from His high throne. He will NOT FORSAKE His own. FOR it is WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Father God, guide me today to do ALL things that will bring glory and honor to You AMEN

We have many many types and kinds of trials and tribulation in our lives! We are commanded to have faith in God. Sometimes these trials and tribulations come upon us because of our selves, some by others, some by acts of nature, and some by no fault of any one! God has commanded us to turn to Jesus Christ in faith that has atoned for our sins and took upon him all pains and tribulations that we will and can experience. Things always done on God's time. Our tests in life can be very hard but the main test is if we turn to Jesus Christ during out trials and tribulations!
