He Gives Good Gifts

Today's Scripture

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father…” (James 1:17).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

God has so many good and perfect gifts in store for you. Not only does He offer eternal life through His Son, Jesus, but the Bible is filled with His generous and abundant promises in this life. He wants to bless you with provision and supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. He wants to pour out His abundant favor on you and cause everything you do to prosper. He wants to bless you with spiritual gifts to make you strong in your inner man. He wants you to enjoy your job and be proud of your work at the end of the day. These are all gifts from God. Every good gift from God is meant to draw us closer to Him. Often times, people have a picture of God shaped by experiences that have happened in the past, or experiences with their earthly father. I encourage you today to let go of any past ideas and see God according to His Word. He is good and faithful, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him! Seek Him today and experience the life of blessing He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

Father in heaven, thank You for Your good and perfect gifts. I open my heart to You today and ask that You help me see Your goodness so that I can know You more. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

a great reminder. however, most of us think that material provision is the only way God shows His blessings. as humans we associate blessings with how much we have materially, more than spiritually.

hi hailey: yes i do agree with you, nevertheless, it's also expected as the Lord has promised to ask anything in His name ( maybe within a reasonable limit?)
God Bless!

Amen, I agree with your words
God is good all the time.

He is good all the time not because of what He's done, but because of who He is, a loving and generous God who gives grace to His Children.

God bless you and to Christ Jesus be the glory always. :D
