00751 - El Shaddai

The name is often translated as "God Almighty," reflecting His ultimate power and ability to provide for His people. Understanding God as El Shaddai helps us to trust in His strength and provision, knowing that He is capable of meeting all our needs and guiding us through any circumstance.

The significance of El Shaddai is beautifully illustrated in Genesis 17:1 (NIV); God says to Abraham, "I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless." It reminds us that God is powerful and faithful, and we can rely on Him entirely.

It reassures us that, no matter what challenges we face, God’s might and sufficiency are more than enough to see us through. Trusting in El Shaddai, we can find peace and confidence, understanding that His almighty power is always at work in our lives, shaping our paths and securing our future. What a fantastic promise that is.


Remember that the creator of the universe is interested in you and me.


Thank You for being God almighty over every aspect of my life. Amen.
