I am El-Shaddai

El Shaddai-'God Almighty' appeared to Abram! WOW!

One commentary stated like this that this is the appearance of God in the person of Jesus that came to Abram at the age of 99 and said, Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.

El-Shaddai means all-sufficent, I am the God that pours out richly, abundantly, continually blessings if you walk with purpose for me. Obedience again! Obedience does bring rewards God appeared! Absolutely, nothing better than that reward! Abram you live this life and I promise many descendants are yours! The El part means awesome power. Definitely, appearing shows awesome power!

Names matter to Our Lord. We have already had many times the listing of the family lines. It is important to God how we get here, our name while we are here, and what happens in our family line. Everything matters to God! Nothing is not important.

The God who pours out blessings not a just a little, but abundantly, richly and continually if we are obedient! Remember, the obedient part walking today!

Sweet blessings,

Debbie, that picture today is so pretty.

I was thinking how Abraham didn't exactly follow God's instructions when he left Ur, but after a vision and a conversation or two with God, he certainly followed those circumcision instructions.

I think Abraham's obedience in confirming the covenant he made with God reflects how his relationship with God had grown.
