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.

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:10 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/1pe.5.10.NIV
Victory Over Sin When Adam and Eve first disobeyed God and ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden, sin became a part of the nature of mankind. Ever since, humans have been born naturally separated from God because of that sin. Because He is perfect, God simply cannot be in close proximity to sin. In the Old Testament, the Israelites were required to frequently sacrifice an unblemished lamb to atone for sin. The offering had to be perfect to cover the debt of sin - it was the only way a person could stay in right standing with God. Jesus is often referred to as the “Lamb of God”, because His sacrifice on the cross covered the sin of humanity. One of the many miracles of the cross is that it reversed the curse of Adam and Eve’s sin: Just as one act of sin separated all of humanity from God, the sacrifice made by one perfect person covered the sin of all people and made a way for reconciliation. Because Jesus offered Himself for us, we hav
One thing I ask from the Lord , this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord . Hear my voice when I call, Lord ; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord , I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Psalms 27:4-9 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/psa.27.4-9.NIV
