A Year of Devotions
Robert J. Morgan
All, the tiniest, BIG, word used in the Bible. Not always necessary grammatically, but necessary to get the message across from God.
This small hardcover book, with ribbon bookmark is a year of devotions, focused on verses with ALL in them.
Each day suggest a scripture reading, and supplies the verse with All, written out for you. There is then a short devotional that goes along with the verse. After that is a quote from a famous person, a song, a verse, or words of wisdom.
This is a small devotional, taking 5 minutes to complete. Nice one to have at the bedside for a quick evening read, or have in the car when you are waiting. It would be a nice supplement to what you are already studying in your quiet time.
“Cast all your cares on him.” “Love the Lord with all your heart.” “I can do all things . . . .” Most would be surprised at how often the word “all” appears in the Bible—literally thousands of times. And with each description of God’s comprehensive promises, each reminder of our complete blessing in Christ, each appeal for our full and total surrender, His reputation grows larger before our eyes. We see again what He can do. We see again who we can be.
Based on the Bible’s sizeable emphasis on this tiny yet powerful word “all,” best-selling author and pastor Robert J. Morgan has created a remarkable 365-day spiritual growth experience in his new devotional, All to Jesus: A Year of Devotions (B&H Books, October 2012). A choice sampling of the Bible’s most “all”-encompassing statements, All to Jesus will surround believers each day with inspiring stories, personal reflections and the encouraging assurance that they are cared for in ways they never imagined.
“Looking up the word in a concordance, I was amazed to find 5,675 “alls” in the Bible,” writes Morgan. “The frequency of this word in Scripture speaks to the all-sufficient grace of our Almighty Savior. It highlights the infinite omniqualities of God, and the complete devotion we should afford Him. He is the Lord of All, our All-in-All, our Almighty God, our All-Sufficient Savior from whom All blessings flow; and He is All we need. “All” is the largest little word in the world, taking already strong statements and broadening their applications to virtual infinity, which, after all, is what one would expect from an omnipotent Father.”
