Hebrews 11:12 ESV
Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.

El Shaddai is associated with fruitfulness. Remember the descendants of Abraham? As stars in the sky and grains of sand by the sea. El Shaddai is the maker and giver of vast abundance, overwhelming supply.

A few years ago, I spoke to a group in Florida. I was illustrating the power of the Word of God by the parable of the Sower in Matthew 13. I gave each person a tiny seed. You could hardly keep it in your hand it was so small. One lady used tape to attach her seed to her notebook so she would remember this illustration. Others followed her lead. You could so easily lose that seed and never find it again.

I was showing them the explosive dynamic of multiplication inside that minuscule dead-looking seed.

Unending Multiplication!

Then I showed them a photo from my garden of one collard plant gone to seed. It was covered with hundreds and hundreds of seedpods, so many it would take you a whole day to count them.

Inside each seedpod were some 20 seeds. And then if you planted each of those thousands of seed, which came from only one tiny seed, you would get thousands of plants producing many thousands of seeds. Ostensibly you could feed the world with that first tiny seed.

Such is the bounty that our God has placed in this earth and at our disposal. This is the superabundance, the unimaginable fruitfulness that our Father, El Shaddai, pours on this world, “making his rain fall on the just and the unjust” (Matthew 5:45).
