There is a word that is found in the last verse of the Bible, that is also found all the way through Scripture. It is the word “all.” For example,
My God shall supply ALL your needs through his riches and glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
Do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and ALL these things will be given to you as well(Matthew 6:31–33, NIV).
Here are some other “all” texts: Ephesians 6:16; Romans 8:32; Matthew 12:31; Romans 11:36; 2 Corinthians 4:15; 2 Timothy 3:11.
When you are feeling discouraged, here is a good one to remember:
The Lord is not slack concerning Hispromise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that ALL should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9, NKJV).
Remember that it’s easier to be saved than to be lost. The Spirit of God pleads with us, keeps us awake at night, and even allows trouble to come our way, so that we might acknowledge our need of Him and seek Him.
Use a concordance to look up other “all” texts. Which is your favorite one? Memorize it. Claim its promises in prayer.

The Choice of Trust I absolutely love referring to the Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as many of Noah Webster's original word definitions contain references to the King James Bible itself; this was all before it was diluted into our contemporary dictionaries. Literally this is the definition found in that dictionary: TRUST , noun 1. Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He that "putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25 KJV 2. He or that which is the ground of confidence. ..."O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5 KJV Trust is a confident expectation. Trust, like faith, is not a feeling. It is a choice. I love that “he that putteth his TRUST in the Lord shall be safe” part of the definition above. Safe? Hmmm? In this world we simply cannot put our trust into imperfect humans. There is only One that cannot fail or forsake us.
“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” Luke 2:49 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/luk.2.49.NIV He said to them, “When you pray, say: “ ‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. ’ ” Luke 11:2-4 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/luk.11.2-4.NIV
