The Giver of Every Good and Perfect Gift

The Giver of Every Good and Perfect GiftWeek 41 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is drawing to a close. This week’s reading was Hebrews 11-13, and James 1-3.

James 1:17 says that every good and perfect gift comes from God, who doesn’t change like the shifting shadows.

“Every good thing in your life is from your Heavenly Father. He isn’t the giver of that which causes sadness, heartache, and pain, but rather of every good and perfect gift. As our Father in Heaven, He delights in blessing us, and seeing us enjoy His blessings. That is the kind of Daddy He is!

Our God is unchangeable. In a world that’s constantly shifting and turning, He remains constant. The One who loves to provide for us, and desires for us to accept His good gifts, will continue to be our source of blessing. For your provision, look to the One who is the giver of all things good and perfect!” – Excerpt from previous post “Every Good and Perfect Gift

He Gave His Son For Us

He Gave His Son For UsThis week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Romans 8:32. This verse asks the question of how God, who gave up His Son for us, will not freely give us all things, along with Him.

We can’t save ourselves. Try as we might, we simply can’t earn a relationship with God. The only way for us to be saved was for Jesus to come, take our sins upon Himself, and give His life for us. God knew this, and out of His great love for us, didn’t spare His Son, but gave Him up for us. He gave the very best He had to offer, that we might become His children. How amazing is the affection that prompted Him to do so!

If God gave His Son for us, how can we possibly think that He would withhold from us any of His blessings? After giving us His best, do we really believe that He would refuse us the healing, provision, peace, joy, prosperity, or anything else, that we are lacking? By giving us Jesus, He proved once and for all His willingness to bless us in ways that are far beyond what we deserve.

God did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us. This is the kind of love He has for you. Trust in that love, and His willingness to bless you. Come to Him with your every need, confident that He both can and will supply!
