All – Sufficient GOD – EL SHADDAI

HE is the One Who pours forth –

GOD is not only the One Who Created and maintains the universe, Who Sees and Knows the beginning to the end – And HE maintains a covenant with His people.

GENESIS 17:1-8 “I AM GOD Almighty, walk before me and be blameless.  I will confirm my Covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”  HE said to Abraham – when Abraham was 99 years old.

There is much application when we stop and think and listen to what GOD is saying.

  • What am I striving for today?
  • Do I strive to walk with GOD and be blameless before Him?
  • Do I continue to allow things in my life that are hindering my walk with GOD?

GOD fulfills His promises.

PSALM 91:  He is the One who is my Comforter, Protector, Rock, Refuge, Present Help in time of need.

SHADDAI – HEBREW #7706 :  Almighty – Shadday – The Almighty #7699:   Shad – that which sustains, pours forth; #7703 :  Shadad – powerful, impregnable.


“H7706 šadday from 7703; the Almighty:—Almighty. A masculine noun and name for God meaning Shaddai, Almighty. The word occurs only forty-eight times in the Hebrew Bible, thirty-one times in the book of Job. This is a name for the Lord—the OT people of faith referring to Him as El Shaddai, God Almighty. The term is found in the passages that report God’s promises of fertility, land, and abundance to them, indicating that He, the Almighty, could fulfill His promises (Ge 17:1; 28:3; 35:11).

The Lord appeared to Abraham when he was ninety-nine years old and identified himself as El Shaddai, God Almighty (Ge 17:1). All three patriarchs knew Him by this name (Ge 28:1‒3; 35:11); as did Joseph (Ge 48:3; cf. Ex 6:3);

APPLICATION:  Are you hurting, troubled or frustrated?  He IS El Shaddai -run to Him – He is your All-Sufficient One – He meets our every need (not want).

APPLICATION:  Are you having difficulties at home?  Ill? Lonely?

TRUST   (Believe) in El Shaddai – rest in Him to show you, guide you to the right answers, to help you find your way.

PSALM 84:5:  “How blessed is the man whose strength is in You.”

Vs. 11, 12:  “For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.”

12 O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”

PSALM 9: 9-10:  “The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble;

10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

Our GOD is living and powerful, and HE is able to keep every promise that HE makes.

He told Abraham that He would make him a great nation and He did.  (Genesis 12:2-3).

He is the Covenant Keeping GOD – (Covenant = solemn, binding agreement, promise).

Psalm 33:16-22:  “The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength.

17  A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.

18  Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,

19  To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.

20  Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.

21  For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name.

22  Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You.”
