El Shaddai – God Almighty (Genesis 17: 1; Exodus 6: 2-3). In Genesis 17: 1, we read , “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.”

And Exodus 6: 2-3 says, “And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord; And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.”

The specific name “El Shaddai”-God Almighty- appears at least six times in Scripture[3] (while God is described as “the Almighty” dozens more.)

God first reveals himself as God Almighty in (Genesis 17) , when he promises Abraham what seems impossible-that he will become the father of many nations:

“When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.’ Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, ‘As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and king will come from you. I will establish mu covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.’”

In (Jeremiah 32: 7), God says, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”

(Psalm 12: 6) tells us “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven time”.

And in (Romans 3: 4), we read, “Let God be true but every man a liar”.

God promised Abraham what was humanly impossible, and then, as He always does, God came through on His word, because with God Almighty, nothing is impossible.
