The LORD God Almighty is His Name

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

The prophet Amos declared, "The LORD God Almighty is His name.” Almighty! How so? Well, He formed Mt. Everest, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Whitney, and the Mt. of Olives. He formed all the mountains with the ease of a child playing with a lump of clay. This same God created wind; air molecules and air pressure that pushes them over the surface of the earth. He spins the earth ushering in light and darkness. And get this, according to Amos, He strolls “on the heights the earth.” 

Now, are you ready for this? That almighty God chose to reveal His thoughts to mankind. That, dear Christ follower, is astounding! Through the pen of about 40 authors over 1,500 years, the almighty God told His story in a way that we can understand it. He did it not only with words, but also in His Son, Jesus, His final revelation to man. The author of Hebrews said that God spoke many times and many ways in times past through the prophets. But at last, He ultimately spoke through His Son whom He appointed heir of all things (Hebrews 1.1-2).

Jesus demonstrated God’s thoughts and love all the way to His cross. The almighty God came to man, explained His way with words and a life sacrificed, and invites each one of us to have a personal relationship with Him. Astounding! Amazing. And, the Lord God almighty is His name! 

He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals His thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth—the LORD God almighty is His name. Amos 4.13
