About What’s In A Name? Series

What's in a name? Names identify, explain, and serve to distinguish one from another. What do God's names reveal to us about Him, coming from Him?


It is very difficult to try and express God’s abundance and might as El Shaddai. There is one place in the New Testament that describes El Shaddai above all descriptions! Although His name is not mentioned in the verse, it is 
His very nature and His perfect identity.

Ephesians 3:20-21 AMPC
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams]—

To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

There is no other Who is able to give and also Whose intention is to give. There is no other Who has the unlimited resources to give!

And…there is no other Who longs and plans and wants to give “superabundantly…infinitely…beyond our dreams.”

There is only EL SHADDAI!
