NAME OF GOD: El Shaddai

Pastor Tony Evans created a list of all the names of God and their pronunciations that can be found here. He also included the scripture for each one. I am going to put every English translation from biblegateway.com. I don’t know what all of the abbreviations stand for. You can click the hyperlink abbreviation to be directed to biblegateway.com and discover which version is which if you are unsure. 😉 My thoughts are italicized.

MEANING: Almighty God

VERSE: Genesis 17:1-2

KJ21 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram and said unto him, “I am the Almighty God. Walk before Me, and be thou perfect. And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.”

Old. That’s what 99 says. Not really in those times though cuz ppl were living for hundreds of years. But, when one considers the entire story of Abram/Abraham. Crazy.

I’m struggling with patience and some promises right now. I don’t see it. It doesn’t make sense. I want to believe and trust God. But. The time it’s taking and magnitude of the miracle are so far beyond me.

That’s what God specializes in. Someone told me God dreams bugger dreams for us than we dream for ourselves. I feel like I heard someone say if you could do it you wouldn’t need God so stuff has to be big in order for Him to be God. I may have added and I don’t wanna attribute it to the wrong person.

Faith. It’s hard. It’s worth it though. God and I have a track record. There’s a whole Bible of track record. It can be hard to see the forest for the trees. It’s in these moments that we have to be careful.

We gotta take it to God and not ppl or our feelings. I told Him I wanted to quit. But I know I can’t. He’s gonna do it. He has to. After I said I wanted to quit, I reflected on who He is and who He has been. That was enough to get it back together.

We are human and will have moments of fear and doubt. But like Pastor YPJ preached, don’t let a moment mess you up. That’s the summary. Lol.

ASV And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

Ion know how he was supposed to be perfect….maybe this is a case of translation. There are plenty of words translated from the original language that don’t quite mean what they were translated into.

Back to A. He had yet to have a child at 99 and God is over there talmbout multiply exceedingly. Bruh. But. Like my auntie said recently. I wonder what A and God had been through before we are introduced to him that made him chuck the deuces and go without much more than the word go.

AMP When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; Walk [habitually] before Me [with integrity, knowing that you are always in My presence], and be blameless and complete [in obedience to Me].
“I will establish My covenant (everlasting promise) between Me and you, And I will multiply you exceedingly [through your descendants].”

Okay. Perfect makes more sense per this here translation.

AMPC When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, I am the Almighty God; walk and live habitually before Me and be perfect (blameless, wholehearted, complete). And I will make My covenant (solemn pledge) between Me and you and will multiply you exceedingly.

Here too. And. Solemn pledge.

CEB When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai. Walk with me and be trustworthy. I will make a covenant between us and I will give you many, many descendants.”

CJB When Avram was 99 years old Adonai appeared to Avram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai [God Almighty]. Walk in my presence and be pure-hearted. I will make my covenant between me and you, and I will increase your numbers greatly.”

Pure-hearted.

DARBY And Abram was ninety-nine years old, when Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said to him, I [am] the Almighty God: walk before my face, and be perfect. And I will set my covenant between me and thee, and will very greatly multiply thee.

Walk before my face. To me that says know me. Looking someone in the face is one of the most important things you can do at times. People can show you their hand. Give you stuff. People can do stuff. People can say stuff. But if you look at their face while they are doing it, it can change everything. You can see their eyes. You can see the intention of their heart in their face. Unless they are a good liar with a great poker face. Hahahahahaha.

DRA And after he began to be ninety and nine years old, the Lord appeared to him: and said unto him: I am the Almighty God: walk before me, and be perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee: and I will multiply thee exceedingly.

EHV When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty. Walk before me and be blameless. I will make my covenant between me and you, and I will make your descendants very numerous.”

Okay. So it says the Lord appeared. Most of us say this is the first time God had an encounter with A. But, like my auntie said, what took place before? It is hard to fathom that he would just leave. But hey. The appearance of God is so seemingly, indescribable at times in the Bible. He may have been in such awe that he was like aight. We out. Lol.

I will make an ·agreement [covenant; treaty; 6:18] between ·us [L me and you], and I will make you ·the ancestor of many people [L exceedingly numerous].”

ICB When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to him. The Lord said, “I am God All-Powerful. Obey me and do what is right. I will make an agreement between us. I will make you the ancestor of many people.”

Not only is he the ancestor of the Jewish people, he is the ancestor of any believer who has faith and trusts in the promises of God. He dealt with the seemingly insurmountable and tests out of this world as it relates to faith and the promises of God. He kept on obeying. Trusting. Believing. Having faith. And God did ALL of what He said He would do.

A had to do something. God didn’t say Ima do this and nothing is required of you. People wanna do whatever and live however and expect God to answer their prayers. Or they give God credit for stuff He has nothing to do with. I know I’ve said this before. But it bears repeating. We CANNOT receive all that God has for us if we are not surrendered and submitted to Him, His will, and what He requires of us. Periodt. And that’s on Mary had a little lamb whose name was Jesus. 🤣😂😉🙃
