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.”
If you are reading this today, you have been the recipient of God’s lavish grace. The fact that you woke up this morning and you’re looking at a device with an internet connection is proof that you’re experiencing a privilege many around the globe (or even in your city) don’t have. Today’s verse reminds us that every good and perfect gift is from our Father above. But we rarely appreciate something until we lose it.
When we fall sick, then we remember the good health we had. When the internet is disconnected, we realize how much we’ve taken it for granted. Recognizing the little good things we’ve received (directly or indirectly) from God and thanking Him for it, goes a long way in building an intimate relationship with Him.
From the gift of salvation to the ability to hold a job, from food on the table to strength for the day – every little thing is a gift from God. Today, spend a few minutes thanking God for His blessings and don’t forget to praise Him for who He is – the unchanging Master of the universe and a loving Father. When you seek the Giver more than you seek His gifts, you will never be disappointed.
