Every Gift Is From God Above

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”

-James 1:17-18

Yes we can say, “Thank you Lord” for the good gift He gave to us such as prosperity, success, good health as this is clearly from him. But how about sickness, failures, persecution. Can we consider that this is gift from God?

Yes I believe as it is written on Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.” 

If you believe that God is working on you, everything including afflictions, failures is also a good gift from. For a meantime people will look at it as sufferings but in God’s time, when His glory unveils everything will work for good and we can assure that this is still from God above.

  1. AMEN from me as well. Happy blessings alone do not contribute to growth toward Christlikeness. In fact, they can have the opposite effect. When we realize that God allows tribulation in our lives for His purpose and for our ultimate blessing, we MUST be thankful for it.

    Speaking of thanks, thanks for following The Well-Dressed Branch. I hope you will find it both entertaining and challenging.


  2. I was just thinking about how cool it is that you write in English. (MT beat me to saying it!) 🙂 What is your first language?

    Thanks so much for your commitment. I needed the reminder that we need to start now, in the middle of life’s busyness, to train or children. (If someone is reading this and wants to see the post, it’s the next one. For some reason I couldn’t comment there.)

    God bless you and your family!
