El Shaddai

In the Old Testament of the Bible many names of God have been revealed during various occasions. God’s character reveals the specificity of His name. El Shaddai “God Almighty” means that God is sovereign, omnipotent, omniscience, omnipresence, and all sufficient. This refers to God’s complete character. God made himself known to Abram in 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”. This was the first time in the Bible that God’s name appeared in this way. God’s character is made known to us when grace and mercy are displayed. Lamentations 3:22-23 “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not”. (23) “They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness”. Prayers are more effective when the words align with God’s character.
