“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
Dear friend, today let’s meditate on the verse which is from James 1:17, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” Many times in our life, we expect and wait for the perfect gift from God, the perfect thing to happen to us in our life or a specific blessing to come our way. We might look for it in a car, a house, a family, a life partner, a gift of child or a seat in a college and so many more things in our life.
We have a list of things that must come in the present and we have all these expectations. We wait for all of them to be checked off. But many times when we receive what we are longing for, there will be something missing or that satisfaction might fade away in just a moment. But do you know what happens when God blesses you? He gives you what you exactly need at the right time, something you might not even expect, might not even thought of, like the right qualities in the right partner, all the perfect features in the right house, the right car for you, the right college for you, the perfect group of friends and so much more.
He will give you what you need at the right time. That’s what it says in Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time.“ My friend, God has already planned everything for your life. So don’t worry when you will get your gift! God has prepared everything to be given to you at the right time. When you receive that gift, give thanks to Him every day for it so that you will enjoy that blessing your whole life. My friend, your gift is on the way. Thank God even now and pray for this blessing.
You know I am waiting for the perfect gift. Thank You for Your promise that You will give the right gift at the right time, what You have planned for me from the very beginning of time. Help me receive it and enjoy it for my entire life. Bless me beyond measure. Thank You for You are giving it very soon and it is going to be a perfect blessing for me.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
