All generous giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or the slightest hint of change.James 1:17 (NET)
In James 2:17, James is explaining God is good; He does not tempt people. He wrote in response to the early believers’ concerns when going through life’s trials (verse 13.)
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God” [for temptation does not originate from God, but from our own flaws]; for God cannot be tempted by [what is] evil, and He Himself tempts no one.James 1:13 (AMP)
God is the Creator; of all that is good; He is the source of and the Father of light. Every good and perfect gift comes from above, from God. He is characterized; by goodness, patience, and love. God is the giver of all good things. His light shines brightly; with love, grace, compassion, and blessings.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.Romans 8:28 (NLT)
In God, there is no hint of darkness or deceit. In Him is no variation or change; He keeps His promises. He gives perfect gifts; “The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle.” James 1:17 (MSG)
It is the devil that tempts us, not God.
So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him make himself scarce. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. (James 4:7 MSG)
God, Father of Lights; greatest gift to us is Jesus, His son Our Redeemer.
Have you let God, the Father of Lights, shine in your life?
Prayer; Our good Father, Father of Lights, giver of every perfect gift, we thank You. Let Your light shine on our dark world. Teach us to follow Your way, illuminate our path, and guide us in Your truth. Our Heavenly Father, we give thanks for Your gifts of love, grace, and forgiveness. Like flowers grow and bloom in sunlight, let us grow in faith and glow with Your light. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen
