(James 1:17) says “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
As Christians we always have things in our lives which we can thank God for. In fact, James 1:17 tells us that every good and perfect gift come from above; hence, those gifts come from God. Some of the good and perfect gifts which the Lord sent from above were our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. And out of that amazing gift came salvation. Further, out of salvation came the love of God, because we didn’t know how to give love or receive love until that gift of salvation came from above. Another good and perfect gift we receive is the joy of the Lord; peace is also one of those good and perfect gifts, and it’s not the peace which the world gives and takes away but it is a peace that passes all understanding. This peace is a peace which the world can’t comprehend; this peace is what God has given us in the midst of the storms of life. The Lord also allows us to have good health which is often taken for granted as if we have a right to it. There are so many good and perfect gifts which the Lord has given us that it could take months to write them all. However, you can take one each day and begin to thank God for it. Finally, there is no one that can give to us the way God can because there is no one who can compete with the Lord.
God Bless You
