Every Good and Perfect Gift

I read this today and the thoughts that accompanied it were simple and profound.

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. (NIV)

Every good and perfect thing is all the simple stuff we take for granted

  • Fresh air
  • Water
  • Food
  • Life
  • Health
  • Love
  • Relationships
  • Salvation
  • Work
  • Cash
  • Blessings
  • Family
  • Employment
  • Business
  • Opportunity
  • Education
  • A home
  • Sight
  • Touch
  • Smell

The list is really endless and cannot be fully described and I challenge you to stop with me today and think of all the blessings you have received from God and say thank you and add them at the bottom of this list.

Life is rocket science because the wiring of creation was short circuited by sin. However, walking with God daily and step by step will undo the mess and make it a beautiful arrangement that will be put on display for all to see. I have indeed learnt that I don’t know it all and I will occasionally fall flat on my face as I walk but all the same I must get up, dust myself off and keep walking or else I will fall into the class of those who started but failed to finish. I am learning every day the meaning of walking in the Spirit and walking by faith and not by sight and in many ways it is rocket science and it is not rocket science.

This is the wonderful life we are called to with great impact and greater growth and challenge. I love this life and there are days I totally dislike it because of the lack of clarity but at the end of the day I have learnt to that God is control and letting him steer the ship will keep me from going aground….

Lovely days ahead as we walk in obedience and clarity
