THE FATHER OF LIGHTS
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow. (WEB)
Our Heavenly Father is the source of every good and perfect gift that we receive. When He opens up His hand, He provides for all that He has created. Jesus told us in Matthew 6:25-34, that we don't have to be anxious about anything in our life because our Father knows what we need before we even ask.
My prayer today is that each one of us would know that God is truly the source of our life. May we look to Him for all our needs today and not to our own ability to manage life. Jesus taught us to pray to our Father these words "Give us this day our daily bread". So when we do this, may our hearts be filled with expectation that He will answer us! After all, He is good and He delights to give good gifts to His children.
7 “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. 8 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or who is there among you, who, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent? 11 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!
