A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. The name for today, El-Shaddai. It can mean God of the mountains or more commonly translated God Almighty.
  3. Scripture
    1. Genesis 17:1; Psalms 91:1
    2. When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.
    3. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

  1. Devotional
    1. El-Shaddai, God Almighty.
    2. We hear that term a lot.
      1. We hear the name so often we probably let it just slip off our tongue without really thinking much about it
      2. God Almighty; Almighty God; the all-sufficient one; the one mighty to nourish, satisfy, and supply;
      3. Maybe we should stop and consider just exactly what we’re saying when we characterize God with this title
    3. Definition: having complete, unlimited power; omnipotent
    4. Synonyms: all-powerful, omnipotent, supreme, preeminent
    5. So again, what does that mean to you
      1. He is able to supply your every need
      2. He is able to nourish and satisfy the deep longings of your soul
      3. He is able to defeat your enemies in impossible situations
      4. He is able to bring hope when things seem hopeless
      5. He is able to conquer your greatest fears
      6. He is almighty, all-powerful, omnipotent, nothing can overcome Him
    6. El-Shaddai spoke the worlds into place
      1. He holds the power of the stars in His hands
      2. He pushes back the oceans and releases the power of volcanoes
      3. He makes grass grow through rock and makes the soft down on a duck’s belly
      4. He is God Almighty, the all-sufficient one, the one mighty to nourish, satisfy, and supply your need
    7. El-Shaddai put the mountains in place and causes them to crumble in the rain
      1. He put the rivers in place and dries them up at his command
      2. He heals when there seems to be no cure
      3. He forgives and removes the burden of guilt from us
    8. If El-Shaddai can do all those things, what are you facing that He cannot help you get through? What problem do you struggle with that He cannot help you conquer? Who is attacking you that you cannot overcome? What temptation are you facing that He cannot provide an exit for you?
      1. The answer is simple. He is El-Shaddai, God Almighty. There is nothing beyond His capability because He is almighty, He has complete, unlimited power; omnipotent, supreme, preeminent.
      2. He is able

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.

  3. Scripture
    1. Genesis 16:13
    2. She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
  4. Devotional
    1. El-Roi, the strong one who sees
    2. I expect we have all hit that point in our life at one time or another when we think no one care about us. No one sees our plight. No one would notice if we just disappeared from the face of the earth.
    3. Drama of the Old Testament
      1. Unlike the stories of other heroes
      2. Points out the flaws and failures of those we should emulate
      3. Abraham, father of the Israelite nation
      4. Promised a son who and progeny that would be the spark of a nation that was innumerable
      5. At 100 he had no children
    4. Sarah gives her maidservant to Abraham in an effort to help God along
      1. Common practice for barren women
      2. Servant acted as surrogate and their child became the heir of the estate
      3. Adopted into the family
      4. Hagar became arrogant and took liberties with Sarah she should not have taken
      5. Sarah drove Hagar and Ishmael away
    5. Hagar, though a servant, lived in luxury and wasn’t prepared to survive in the desert
      1. Alone
      2. Lost
      3. Without hope
      4. In despair, resigned to die in the wilderness
    6. God, in His strength and power, sees her
      1. God does not abandon her as Abraham did
      2. God sees her despair and hopelessness
      3. God recognizes her need
      4. God intervenes and provides water and food for Hagar and Ismael
    7. Important aspect of the story
      1. God doesn’t take Hagar out of her difficult circumstances
      2. He tells her to go back into the situation from which she fled
      3. God puts her back under Sarah’s thumb
      4. Bt with a promise
      5. Ismael will also become a great nation, and he did
  5. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."

A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. El-Elyon, the Lord most high, nothing compares to Him. Let’s hear more about His name.
  3. Scripture
    1. Genesis 14:17-20; Isaiah 14:13-14
    2. After Abram returned from defeating Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him, the king of Sodom came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley).

Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying,

“Blessed be Abram by God Most High,

Creator of heaven and earth.

And praise be to God Most High,

who delivered your enemies into your hand.”

Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

    1. You said in your heart,

“I will ascend to the heavens;

I will raise my throne

above the stars of God;

I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,

on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.

I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;

I will make myself like the Most High.”

      1. Devotional
        1. El-Elyon, the Most High God
          1. Elyon, up, high
          2. el-Elyon, could be translated, the extremely exalted, sovereign, high, God
          3. If there were any other gods, our God would be high above all others, none other would come close
          4. El-Elyon, the God so high none other can compare
        2. In an age of polytheism
          1. Abram recognized and worshiped only El-Elyon
          2. Melchizedek, king of Salem, served as a priest and he too recognized only one God, El-Elyon, God Most High
          3. They both understood nothing could compare to Creator of all things
          4. El-Elyon is the only One worthy of worship
        3. The world tries to convince us otherwise
          1. From the first deception in the garden of eden
          2. Success
          3. Fame
          4. Wealth
          5. Pleasures of life
          6. None can take the place of El-Elyon
        4. Today remember we worship El-Elyon, God Most High, the Extremely Exalted, Sovereign, Most High God. Nothing compares to Him
      2. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."

A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Today we explore the name Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Lord our righteousness. What does that name mean to you?
  3. Scripture
    1. Jeremiah 23:6
    2. In his days Judah will be saved

and Israel will live in safety.

This is the name by which he will be called:

The Lord Our Righteous Savior.

  1. Devotional
    1. Jehovah-Tsidkenu, The Lord our righteousness
      1. The Lord who makes everything right (MSG)
      2. The Lord makes things right for us (ERV)
      3. The Lord our righteousness (KJV)
      4. The Eternal is our righteousness (Voice)
    2. We try so hard to do what is right, don’t we?
      1. There is a problem
      2. We can’t do it, we fail
      3. We live what Paul talked about in Romans
      4. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?

      1. As hard as we try, the sin in us keeps us from being righteous. Not one of us is righteous
    1. Jesus is sinless and is our righteousness. God is our righteousness
      1. He paid the penalty we should pay as punishment for our sins
      2. His blood, shed for us, covers our sin
      3. When we accept His sacrifice as our own His righteousness is imparted to us
      4. God the Father sees the righteousness of His own blood, His Son’s blood shed on the cross, imparted to us, when we accept His gift of salvation
    2. Today, think of what God has done for you as Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Lord our Righteousness. He makes us right before Him by covering our sins with His own blood so that we may stand before Him blameless, pure, spotless, holy. Worship Him as Jehovah-Tsidkenu today.
