NAME OF GOD: El Shaddai
Verse: When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty (El Shaddai); walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.” - Genesis 17:1,2
Meaning: Almighty God.
El Shaddai show me how to honor you with my faith like Abraham did throughout his life. I want to be a person of great faith who gets to experience you as El Shaddai in my life. At times, Abraham did not exhibit the faith that he did in later days yet in so doing he delayed the oath of the covenant coming to him from you. Help me not to cause delays in my destiny but rather to walk upright in faith starting even from today. Strengthen the muscles of my heart and my soul to be willing to risk all to show you my dedication and commitment to you as my King and to your kingdom agenda on earth.
Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.
In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:
• What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord
• What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us
• What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more
The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
