This time, the name “Almighty God” is in the Hebrew, “El Shaddai,” which means the All-Sufficient One. God is sufficient to meet all of our needs. As you end this lesson, consider the sufficiency of God. He created all things. He is all-powerful (omnipotent). He is all-knowing (omniscient). He is all-present (omni-present). He is all that we need. What need do you have today in your life? God is sufficient to supply that need. Believe and trust in His sufficiency.
