James 1:16-17–Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
We should never get confused about where the good things in our life come from. God is good and He is the author of all good things. He doesn’t change and so the good things that He is able to bring about in others lives, He is able to bring about in our lives. We can often get deceived into thinking that we “worked” to provide these good things. Or, sometimes people attribute them to luck or chance. God is the author and giver of all that is good. Take a look today at all the good things in Your life and thank God for all that He has done.
Father, I will praise You and lift You up. You are the One who provides all that is good in my life I praise You and give You the credit and the glory for the good things that I have the privilege of enjoying. Keep my eyes open to Your working in my life so that I may give You all the credit and praise for all You have done and are doing.
