My Father's God

God’s Name: My Father’s God

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

He is my God, and I will praise him,

my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

Exodus 15:2

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

  • The Hebrew for this name is Ab Elohim. Ab means father or ancestor. Elohim is the plural form of God.
  • If your parents or other ancestors were believers, what does it mean to you that God is your Father’s God? How does that affect you?
  • Growing up as a missionary kid I watched God provide for my family. Whenever my sisters or I asked my parents for anything expensive, their response was, “Let’s ask God.” It was incredible how God provided for us, including giving us a very nice house to live in rent-free when we came back from Guatemala with no money. I have a great view of God because of my parents.
  • What if you don’t know anyone in your family who are or were believers? How can you relate to this name? Ask the Lord to show you. Is it possible you have ancestors in the past who you didn’t know who knew God?
  • Meditate on this name today. Ask the Lord what He wants you to see from it.

A Prayer for You:

God, I want to praise You and exalt You because You are such a great God. You deserve praise and adoration, whether or not my parents are or were believers. I want future generations to be able to look back to me and praise You, because of my relationship with You.

Do you know anyone in the military? 2031 Names of God makes a great gift for them. Look at what Brig General David B. Warner, USAF (Ret.), Executive Director, Officers’ Christian Fellowship, said about 2031 Names of God:

“We serve an amazing God!  Understanding and appreciating the character of the Lord is the beginning of knowing who we are in Him.  In Gaylyn William’s 2031 Names of God, she explores and uncovers who God is by examining the 2031 names given to the Lord.  As a military retiree who spent 30 years serving my Nation and my Lord, how refreshing it will be to those who serve to discover in a more intimate way the Lord they serve through this journey Gaylyn will take you on.”

The Surprising Joy of Exploring God's HeartGod’s Name: El-Shaddai—God

Almighty

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said,
“I am El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty.’
Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.”
Genesis 17:1 (NLT)

Excerpted from The Surprising Joy of Exploring God’s Heart
A Daily Adventure with 365 of His Names

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

• El Shaddai in Hebrew means the all-sufficient God, God Almighty or the One Who is all-powerful.
• In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Jesus said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” God’s grace is all you need. El Shaddai is sufficient for you and for me.
• Meditate on the name, God Almighty. He is all powerful. He is sufficient for all that you need.
• What does it mean to you today, knowing He is all you need and His grace is enough?
• Thank and praise the Lord that He is God Almighty.

A Prayer for You:

El Shaddai, I’m so grateful that You are the all-sufficient God. You are all I need in every area of my life. Thank You that I can depend on You. Teach me to rely less on myself and more on You, God Almighty.

Blessings on you as you get to know God in new ways,
