El Shaddai

I have been reading the book: Praying the names of God here and there in my quiet time. Today the name was El Shaddai which translates "Almighty" or "The one for whom NOTHING is impossible." It's reassuring to know that I serve a God who can do anything and He has proven that time and time again. He is strong and unchanging. I am glad to know that God does not come down to my level when I think things are too hard or impossible to accomplish. With Him all things are possible. I pray that I can exhibit enough faith in Him to really believe that. Wow..to think about if I really did believe that, how different my perceptions and outlook would be on so many things. God is so powerful and so many times I water Him down. Just looking back in the bible there are so many times when God did the IMPOSSIBLE and yet I doubt Him now sometimes. God help me to see you as El Shaddai and know and trust that YOU can do all things....Your Power is greater than any limitations that I put on you. Thank you for that!
