God's Math

 

"I am El Shaddai -- God Almighty." Genesis 17:1

From an early age, we learn the basics of addition. 1+0=1. 2+0=2. 4+0=4. Adding zero to any number does not add to the number.

How about God+0? God+0 = everything that you need. If you have Him, you don't need anything else.

When God appeared to Abram, He introduced Himself as El Shaddai, God Almighty, meaning the God who is more than enough.

Sarai was too old to become pregnant and give birth to a son, but God said He was more than enough. He was enough then, and He is enough now.

Do you need healing today? He is Jehovah-Rapha, the Lord who heals. (Exodus 15:26; Psalm 147:3)

Do you need financial provision? He is Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord who provides. (Genesis 22:14; Psalm 34:10)

Do you need breakthrough? He is Jehovah-Perazim, the Lord who breaks through. (2 Samuel 5:20; 1 Chronicles 14:11)

Do you have a relationship needing to be restored? He is the Spirit of Shalam, the God who restores. (Joel 2:25)

Do you need forgiveness? He is the God who forgives. (Psalm 16:7)

Do you need protection? He is Jehovah-Shamar, the Lord who keeps and protects -- the loyal (Psalm 31:23); the helpless (Psalm 35:10); and those who love Him (Psalm 145:20).

He is also El-Roi, the Lord who sees. His eyes are on you ... always. (Genesis 16:13-14). He is Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord your shepherd (Psalm 23:1), and He is Jehovah-Nissi, the Lord your victory (Exodus 17:15).

God+0 = all that you need at any given time or place. Bring your need to Him. He is also Jehovah-Shammah, the God who hears
(Psalm 34:17).

He promises to answer when you call. Jeremiah 33:3.

Be blessed. He is all you need, and He is more than enough to handle what you give to Him.
