HOW GOD MIRACULOUSLY PROVIDED POUNDED YAM FOR MY HUNGRY UNCLE AND I IN 1956
JEHOVAH ELSHADDAI IMPLIES THAT WHATEVER YOU NEED, GOD CAN SUPPLY WITH EXTRA
FOR WHATEVER REASON YOU ARE IN NEED, GOD WILL SEND YOU A MIRACLE TODAY!
GOD IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT FOR THE BARREN, WIDOWS, WIDOWERS AND ORPHANS
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “ELSHADDAI” JULY 2023 THANKSGIVING SERVICE RCCG 2nd July, 2023 Part A
Genesis 17:1. The very first time that God introduced himself to man he said, “I am Jehovah Elshaddai, the God who is more than enough.” When they want to put that in English they found that the best to interpret Jehovah Elshaddai is to say, the Almighty God.
But Bible scholars tell us that Jehovah Elshaddai actually means God your mother’s breast.
The implication of that is that if a woman gives birth to even 4, 5 children at a time, there is enough milk in the breast to feed all of them.
After all of them have fed from the milk and they are tired, there will still be milk there. It means that God is simply saying, “whatever all of you need, I can supply and there will still be extra.”
This month in particular, I have good news for someone: before this month is over God will bless you. If you’re trusting him for the fruit of the womb, a partner, promotion, joy, he will surprise you!
He is more than sufficient for the barren. It doesn’t matter how old. Genesis 18:9-14.
For those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, my prayer is that your own will not be too difficult for God.
He is more than sufficient for the widow. As a matter of fact when you go through the Scriptures you will find that he has very special interest in widows.
1 Kings 17:8-16; 2 Kings 4:1-7; Luke 7:11-15. So all our widows wherever you are, God will take care of you! The same thing applies to widowers of course.
We want to spend a little bit of time with orphans. There are categories of orphans: the half orphans (those who have just lost one of the parents). When you are like me and you have lost both of them, you are a full orphan. There are orphans that your parents are not dead, it’s just that they said they don’t want you. Parents can forsake completely a child.
The Bible tells us that even in that situation, God will still take care of you. Psalm 27:10. There are orphans where the parents are alive, they love you, but they are helpless – they can’t do much for you and there are some of us who know what we are talking about. In a sense, I was an orphan. My parents loved me.
I happened to be their last boy. For the first 18 years of my life, I had no pair of shoes. Not that they didn’t want to buy, if you look at their own feet they didn’t have any for themselves.
The Almighty God says if you find yourself in that kind of situation (not that your parents are dead, it’s just that they are handicapped), he will help you. He helped me so he will help you. Isaiah 41:17. All of us who are in need for one reason or the other, today God will send you a miracle.
I am sure you remember something that happened way back in 1956. You say, how can I remember? Well I’ll tell you what happened. I was staying with my uncle, my parents are far away and the Uncle himself who was trying to look after me was as poor as anybody could be.
But whenever he had any food we shared. So what happens when he has no food? We starved. So there was this occasion there was no food: he was hungry, I was hungrier and there was nothing anybody could do about it. So the 2 of us were just sitting down, watching each other.
All of a sudden somebody knocked, came in and there is this young girl carrying a bowl on her head and said to my uncle, “My sister said I should give you this food.” Pounded yam with Chicken stew. My uncle said, “I don’t know your sister.” The girl said, “My sister knows you.” My uncle said, “thank you o. When I have money, I will send you something.”
So we got the pounded yam. As soon as the girl turned, we descended on the pounded yam.
We were breaking the bones of the chicken when the girl returned and said, “I am sorry o I came to the wrong house.”
– A miracle will come to your house today! Even if it’s not meant for you, in the name that is above every other name, a miracle will come to your house today!
