Good Gifts

Matthew 7:7,11 AMP
7 Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

11 If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!

Mt7_11

James 1:17 AMP
17 Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

… who does not change like shifting shadows. NIV
… with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. NASB
… Unlike them[the heavenly lights], He never changes or casts shifting shadows. NLT
… with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. NRSV
… with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. NKJV

 

Thank You Father for Your perfect gift — Your son the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You for the gift of eternal life that is each of ours to accept thru Jesus. Thank You that there is no shadow in Your presence and the glory of the Lord will give us light with the Lamb as the lamp{Revelations 21:4, 23, 25}. Help each of us open our hearts to Your presence today & always. In the name of Jesus Christ.

 

Praise to God the Father of lights, He never changes or casts shifting shadows. Every good and perfect gift is from above, from Him. Lord Jesus help us come to You and  ask, trusting that You will answer. Help us to persist and not give up until we hear from You!

 

Thank You Lord Jesus for everything You are to me. Help me to recognize, be grateful and give thanks for every good gift from Your hand. I am so grateful for Your GREAT faithfulness!

Philemon 1:6 NET … I pray that the faith you share with us may deepen your understanding of every blessing that belongs to you in Christ.

From NetBible Philemon 1:6

  • *The result is that Paul prays for Philemon that he will be equipped to encourage and love the saints more as he himself is brought to a place of deeper understanding of every spiritual blessing he has in Christ; out of the overflow of his own life, he will minister to others.

.

I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective and powerful because of your accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ. -Philemon 1:6 AMP

.

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. -Philemon 1:6 NIV
