Certain names of God stand out.  Elohim is the first mentioned in the Bible.  Jehovah-Jireh is perhaps the most poetic.  Jehovah-Rohi is seen as the most personal.  Of all the names, El Shaddai could be the most complete name.  It speaks of nourishment and power.  It is a winning combination that Abraham had to come to grips with in his own life and a combination we need to do so in ours.
