Pensamiento De Devoción:
Such a powerful truth that James declares to us today, every good gift and perfect gift comes from God! Nothing compares to the many blessings that God gives us as his children. Understand that Jesus is the only source of all blessings and prosperity that you can have in this life. The Lord knows how and when to bless, His gifts are incomparable and always on time! In Matthew 7:11 the Lord recalls telling us, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
Today we have a Father in heaven who is ready to give us the best gifts and the greatest blessings, if only we approach him and ask! All it takes is to raise our eyes to heaven where every perfect gift is, asking in faith, believing that our provision comes from Him. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing, as Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. “
God wants to give us the best gifts, always remember that He is concerned for our good, he just wants us to trust Him and walk in His will. He tells us this day, “because I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11). His plans are for us to prosper and give us the best of Heaven! Never settle for the things that the world offers, seek God! He can bless us more than we can imagine, Thank God His gifts are always extraordinary!
