His Gifts are Perfect
Have you ever received a gift and thought, Wow, what a great gift – it’s perfect! Thinking back, why was it so wonderful? Perhaps because only someone who knew you really well could have made it so personal. And because that person took the time and consideration to give something he or she knew would mean a lot to you. That is how thoughtful and loving our God is. He knows you better than anyone. His gifts of peace, mercy, and forgiveness are carefully measured and given at just the right times, in the most perfect ways you need. His care for you is endless. His love for you gets poured out through His grace and righteousness in the very details of your life. He is good.
Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift. (Ephesians 4:7)
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! (Matthew 7:11)
See, the Lord God comes with strength, and His power establishes His rule. His reward is with Him, and His gifts accompany Him. (Isaiah 40:10)
Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God, the Creator of all light. (James 1:17 TLB)
Father, not a day passes that I don’t receive gifts from You in just the ways I need. May I see them as Your “I love you’s” chosen and given specifically for me, to bless my heart and to remind me of Your presence. Amen.
