So donâ€™t be misled, my dear brothers and sisters. Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. -James 1:16-18, NLT
What must we remember in the midst of times of testing and temptation? Well, verses 13-15 make it clear there are many things to keep in mind, with verses 16-18 serving as an exclamation point!
It’s as though the Holy Spirit wants this idea to be without question: No matter what is happening in our lives, our unchanging Father’s desire is to bless us. Just in case we ever doubt God’s desireÂ to bless us, remember this: He CHOSE to give us birth by giving us his true word!
Mmmm… That’ good news, isn’t it?
