I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai—’God Almighty’—but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh, to them. Ex 6:3
His name was so sacred it was not uttered by His people for fear of violating the third Commandment – You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. Ex 20:7
I’ve always been fascinated by the title “El-Shaddai” (God Almighty). It’s not a proper name for God but it is who He is!
It’s like calling me “the pastor”, though it’s not my name it is what I am.
It dawned on me just how Almighty He is. He is able to do all things but this does not mean He will do all things.
He is able to heal but does not always heal when you want Him too.
He is able to deliver but doesn’t always deliver when you want Him too.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says Yahweh. Jer 29:11
In being Almighty, He is able to see what you need, when you need it.
He is able to act for you when you need it.
Abraham, who called Him “God Almighty”, was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. Rom 4:21
He is able to help us when we are being tested. Heb 2:18
He is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. Heb 7:25
He is El-Shaddai, God Almighty, and He is able to do all things for you.
Put your hope and trust in Him.
Abba Father, You are Almighty. You can do all things. You have promised to love me and care for me. When I am over my head – You are there to pull me up. When I cry out for help – You are there to hear me. Please reveal Your will in my life and show me what I need to do today. Lead me with Your Holy Spirit to reach others that do not know You. In Jesus’ name I pray, YES&AMEN
