Good morning.


Today we focus our thoughts on El Shaddai; God Almighty, the all sufficient God.


God introduces Himself as El Shaddai to Abraham in Genesis 17:1 "When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty (El Shaddai); walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”  (Genesis 17:1-2)


In the words of the song 'El Shaddai' made famous by Amy Grant, God is honoured as God Almighty, unchanging. She sings,  “Age to age you’re still the same, by the power of the name.” She sings some good theology in this song:


"Through Your love and through the ram

You saved the son of Abraham

Through the power of Your hand

Turned the sea into dry land

To the outcast on her knees

You were the God who really sees

And by Your might

You set Your children free"


"Through the years you've made it clear

That the time of Christ was near

Though the people couldn't see

What messiah ought to be

Though Your word contained the plan

They just could not understand

Your most awesome work was done

Through the frailty of Your son"


Chorus

El shaddai, el shaddai

El-elyon na adonia

Age to age You're still the same

By the power of the name

El shaddai, el shaddai

Erkamka na adonai

We will praise and lift You high

El shaddai"


Have a good day in the presence of the One who has remained the same through the ages.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. You have reason to be content today. God is your portion. The idea of our “portion” is a rather strange concept to us. But in the ancient Hebrew culture you knew what the “portion” of th

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
