A follow-up on yesterday’s post about the little word “all”. After reading Amy’s reflection on “all” meaning all, I found myself noticing that little word more. For instance, Ps 25.16: “All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness.” “All” means all, not some. So wherever the Lord leads my steps are full of His steadfast love and faithfulness. No matter how it looks or feels.
Or take Ps 145. I have eleven “alls” circled in my Bible in that psalm. For example, vv. 17-18: “The Lord is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings. The Lord is near to all who call upon him . . .” Take some time to find the rest of them yourself. . . and better yet, meditate on what that little word means for you. “All” means all.
