In English grammar, adjectives can be used in three forms: positive (the book is long), comparative (the book is longer), or superlative (the book is the longest). Obviously, the superlative case indicates the ultimate. If a book is the longest, that means there is no book longer.
The superlative form of adjective is found in God’s name Almighty (Hebrew El Shaddai). It was the name by which God revealed Himself to the patriarchs before revealing His personal name, Yahweh, to Moses (Exodus 6:3). If we say God is “Almighty,” it means He is the mightiest of all. It means there is none more powerful, none who can stand against Him. The New Testament version of almighty is pantokrator—from pas(all) and krateo (to be strong, rule) (2 Corinthians 6:18). Almighty (pantokrator) is found eight times in Revelation, the book that depicts God’s ultimate victory over Satan and his demons.
When you feel overpowered by life’s circumstances, remember that God is mightier than all. You can do all things through Him who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13).
One Almighty is more than many mighties.
