God Most High and Able


Psalm 57:2-“I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.”

Saul was king of Israel. David was one of his servants. People liked David very much but Saul did not like this and tried to kill David. David fled from Saul and hid in a cave. He came to Adullam cave alone, discouraged, and in continued danger. David said “For my soul trusts in You”.  Our faith does not deserve mercy, but it always wins it from the sovereign grace of God when it is sincere.”—Spurgeon. David’s soul trusted and hoped only in God; there was nothing else to trust in, especially for his defense.

In this scripture, our focus should be merely on two things – who are we praying to and what can they do or their ability? The answer is simple for Believers. We pray and cry out to God ‘most high’. Nothing compares to Him. All things were created by Him so He will definitely be the best person to approach to fix our needs. The greatness and sublimity of God’s nature encourage us to go to Him in prayer. However high be our enemies, our Heavenly Father is Most high, and God can readily send from His high power the succor that we need.

Our God performs ‘all’ things for us. We have this persuasive reason to pray, because we have seen God perform mighty and marvelous deeds in our life. While we wait, God works. The Lord who has undertaken for us, will not draw back, but will keep His covenant appointments and actions. Whatever the Lord takes in hand He will accomplish; our past mercies are our guarantees for our future. Our Lord finishes anything and everything which He has begun. He planned us before we were in our mother’s womb. He chose us and called us to be His child. Our promise-keeping God will be with us every step of the way to see that we finish our race on earth and be with Him. This is our God, One most High, One who is Able, One who is incomparable, One who is mighty, One who reaches out to us, in His love.
