El – Shaddai – The God that honors Man.

"I will honor him," God said. "I will set him on high." These are two of the seven things God said He would do for the person who has set his love on Him. I would rather have God's honor than the greatest honor this world can bestow. The world honors politicians, statesmen, generals, educators, and scientists, but if they're going to honor any kind of a preacher, they'll honor some modernistic preacher who doesn't believe in the Virgin Birth or the authenticity of the Word of God. The world as a whole is never going to honor a real Biblebelieving, tongue-talking, divine healing-practicing preacher of the Gospel any more than they honored Jesus. No, you must compromise or back off a little and lay down the power to get this world to honor you. I would rather have God's honor. Jesus Himself told John on the island of Patmos, "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne" (Rev. 3:21). History tells us that as Napoleon was reviewing his troops one day, his horse began to rear. A young buck private stepped forward, took the horse by the bit, and quieted it down. Napoleon said, "Thank you, captain" (thus promoting him to captain immediately). He said, "Captain of what, sir?" Napoleon replied, "Captain of my personal guard." So the buck private moved into the rank of captain, but all the other officers shunned him, because they had earned their rank, and his was granted to him. Napoleon noticed this, so when he next called for a review of his army in full regalia, he rode side by side to the parade grounds with this young captain. The other officers realized he was a favorite of Napoleon's, and they began to court his favor. The people of this world may not know it, but the time is coming when they are going to find out that we born-again, Spirit-filled, tongue-talking, divine healing-believing folks are favorites of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and they will wish they had courted our favor. "I will honor Him," God said
