“My ALL in ALL”

toyouwithloveThis is the beginning of a (hopefully) daily posting of the “Littlest BIG word” in the Bible.

This is based on the book: Daily Assurance of God’s Grace My ALL in ALL, Robert J. Morgan.

I found this a wonderful devotional and want to share it with you. Yes, I know I have started one month and a day after the first of the month. I am a procrastinator. I will hopefully soon be a REFORMED procrastinator. Let’s ALL keep this in our prayers!

Robert J. Morgan, author of “Daily Assurance of God’s Grace My ALL in ALL writes for this day:

February 2

(Reading: Job 1:18-22)

“Throughout all this Job did not sin or blame GOD for anything.”  Job 1:22

(The remainder is paraphrased by me.)

In the book of Job:

There are 290 questions in the forty-two chapters.
Every chapter contains a question mark EXCEPT chapter 29.

The word why is asked twenty-eight times as Job struggled to understand his situation of loss and pain.
Five (5) times in the book, Job affirmed his faith. He refused to give into feeling or thoughts of despair.

It’s because of those 5 times of affirmed faith, that the Bible later spoke of Job as as a model of perseverance,

(James 5 V 11). >”You know how we call those blessed (happy) who were steadfast [who endured]. You have heard the endurance of Job, and you have seen the LORD’s [purpose and how He richly blessed him in the} end, inasmuch as the LORD is full of pity and compassion and tenderness, and mercy.” (AMP)

************************************************************************************************************************************************************************Job was tragically stricken by Satan in an attempt to prove that human’s are so weak, that when in a place of despair, we will turn against God instead of turning to Him.

After Job’s first trial, Job said “The LORD gives, and the LORD takes away. Praise the name of the LORD.” (Job 1 V 21)

After the second set of problems, Job asked his wife, “Should we accept only good from GOD and not adversity?” (Job 2 V 10)

While his friend(?) Zophar criticized him, Job said of the LORD, “Even if He kills me, I will hope in Him….This will result in my deliverance.” (Job 13 V 15-16)

Job was suffering, yet he declared “I know my living Redeemer, and He will stand on the dust at last. Even after my skin has been destroyed, yet I will see God in my flesh.” (Job 19 V 25-26.)

To Job’s other friend(?), Job confessed, “He knows the way I have taken, when He has tested me, I will emerge as pure gold..” (Job 23 V 10)

As Robert J. Morgan writes, “It helps us when we verbally declare that JESUS IS LORD in the hard moments. Talk to yourself about the truths of GOD, and after He has tested you, you will emerge as gold.”

  1. Friend of my heart: How you have been in my thoughts and prayers. This is an awesome devotion and I am so delighted that it has begun in the book of Job. No doubt that the Lord timed it perfectly! As Job was brought through each of his trials, I see one main context…he was vocal in ALL situations to show that God is sovereign and just…that everything that happens has a divine purpose. Speak it out…Shout to the Lord, for he is listening to hear what is the testimony of your FAITH! ~Amen
    Bless you~Zoey

    1. Zoey: My friend, thank you so much for taking the pressure off of me for the starting of this blog. It freed my heart, and allowed the Holy Spirit to take over. I love you. You are cherished by me.

  2. In all things, I find that when I talk to myself about the Lord’s power, ability, strength, love, and faithfulness, it changes my heart and changes my view of my life. When I hear myself say out loud the Truth of God it sets me free from despair, doubt and fear. It is His Truth that sets me free! Wonderful devotion. Thanks! ❤

    1. Ms. Sahagun: I am delighted to read your comment. I too, find myself strengthened, relieved and uplifted when I speak His words out loud. A beloved friend of my heart taught me about this, and I find the more I practice this, the stronger I feel. I was speaking His words over myself this morning-look what happened-I blogged 3 items! The first time in months I have blogged! He gave me the strength, the words, the perserverence. Blessings to you!
