Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (James 1: 17).
Ponder over this for sometime. Bible says that anything good that you receive in your life comes directly from Him. That beautiful sunrise, the twinkle in a loved one’s eye, even that raise at work, a house to live in, friends to brighten up your day. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights.
God does not change like shifting shadows. He is the same yesterday, today and forever! Hallelujah; for such a gracious, loving heavenly Father who is a giver at the very center of His heart!
Jesus encourages us to “keep on asking”, “seeking” and “knocking” because God is a good Father and delights to give good gifts to His children. Like any healthy father/child relationship, it breaks the Father’s heart if we only seek Him for the things He gives us. The kind of gifts we are after Him for are really only the frosting on a milk-shake.
The ultimate perfect and good gift from God is the gift of Himself! With Him by our side, our nets will be full to overflow; our selfishness will vaporize and our passion will kindle the fire of love to all.
Let today and the coming days unfold into your life the Goodness, where you desire for more of the Gift of Jesus than the things that He would or could bless you with.
