(NKJV) Psalm 91 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. 14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
(NKJV) Genesis 17 1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” 3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.
· El Shaddai is one of seven covenant names through which God revealed Himself to Israel.
· In Hebrew, El Shaddai means “the All Sufficient One” or “the God who is more than enough.”
· The KJV translated El Shaddai as “Almighty God.”
· This morning, El Shaddai is the God who is more than enough. The old and new testaments speak of His greatness.
Lets look to the Word for a few examples of El Shaddai and take these principles and apply them to our life.
Old Testament Examples
· After 430 years of bondage, Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses stretched out his rod and parted the Red Sea – We serve a God who is more than enough showed up.
· Has God ever made a way for you when there seemed to be no way?
· For our ministry, God opened and closed doors, poured His favor with man to get this facility and He continues to direct this church to new levels in Christ.
· Joshua and his leaders prayed for God’s help. They were fighting a crucial battle against their enemies and it was getting dark. If nighttime would fall, they might lose the battle.
