When the Lord God appeared to Abram, what He actually said in Hebrew was, “I am El Shaddai …… El Shaddai is one of seven covenant names through which God revealed Himself to Israel. In Hebrew, El Shaddai means “the All-Sufficient One,” or “the God who is more than enough.” The translators of the King James Version translated El Shaddai as “Almighty God.” I like that. If He is the All-Sufficient One, then He is Almighty: the One who is more than enough.
All through the Old Testament, Almighty God revealed and unveiled Himself as the God who is more than enough. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He said to Abraham, “thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance” (Gen. 15:13,14).
