“When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty.’ Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.” Genesis 17:1 (NLT)
Abram talked with God, and believed what he heard. El Shaddai, God Almighty. With those four words, this post is summed up. What can be added to El Shaddai, God Almighty?
In 1982 Amy Grant released a song written by Michael Card and John Thompson, titled, “El Shaddai.” Part of the lyrics go, “Age to Age You’re still the same by the power of Your Name”
God Almighty, He is everything, mighty in strength and power, capable of handling all that we bring Him. He never wavers in His love for us. He is there in our darkest moments and when we see the world as perfect. He is there for any situation we may find ourselves in.
We can’t cause dew to form, but God can. We can’t control the rain, the thunder or lightening, but God can. He speaks and the seasons change. He is Almighty God. We see dimly but He sees clearly. We can only imagine the heights and depths of this world, how deep the oceans are, what lies beneath the oceans, but our God knows as He spoke and they came into being.
El Shaddai is amazing!
