“Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us do not bring us up from here…
So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”
And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Exodus 33:15, 17-18
Dear Heavenly Father, El Shaddai, we cry out to you. You alone can heal. You alone can save. Father, we don’t want to go anywhere if you don’t go with us. Father, we thank you for your mighty Presence. We know we can do nothing on our own. We ask for You to show Your favor, grace, and healing power through the ministry of Deeper Still. We ask for more of You. We ask for You to show Deeper Still Your glory. In Jesus’ Mighty and Holy Name, Amen.
During the Deeper Still Team meeting this past week, Karen Ellison said something to the effect of:
“If the Lord isn’t in it, I don’t want to do it. I don’t want to do anything without the power of God.”
Moses refused to go out if the Lord’s presence was not with Him. In the same way, we don’t want to do anything if the Lord is not in it. Nothing of eternal value can happen without the Lord’s power at work in and through us by His Holy Spirit. We have no power to heal, no power to love, no power to bring freedom. Only Jesus can set the captives free. We need El Shaddai, God Almighty.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been drawn to the name El Shaddai. I remember singing the song “El Shaddai” by Amy Grant often as a girl and feeling the power of God in it.
Kari Jobe has a song out called, “We Cry Out”. Every time I sing the name El Shaddai in that song, again I sense my ever-present God in a powerful way. Oh Lord, how we rely on Your name. You are so mighty and worthy to be praised. Thank you for your all-surpassing power.
God Almighty. Lord Most High. El Shaddai.
Thank you for praying this with us today. We know His power is at work. We need Him. We cherish your prayers.
