El Shaddai

2 cor 12-9

Whatever we need, emotionally, physically, spiritually God, our Abba is also El Shaddai.
Often like Paul, we wish things were different. We may long for a “break”.

We may have implored God to do something-anything.
In His love, He may respond as He did to Paul, My grace is enough.
He is indeed our El Shaddai.
He could indeed remove or stop whatever “it” is, but sometimes He does not.
Then our heart can cry out to him and we can no matter what come the place of REST and TRUST in His comfort.
Yes, even in the storms.
El Shaddai is our All-Sufficient Sustainer. It is God “El” who helps, and it is God as “Shaddai” who abundantly blesses with all manner of blessings, including the ability to endure what may seem unendurable.
I saw a quote I liked online. It says, “to experience God’s sufficiency, we must realize our own insufficiency.” So true.
Be blessed today in knowing that our All Sufficient God is also Emmanuel, God With Us.
