In today’s devo from the book Outflow, “Reading 3 – Blessings Flow”, we read how:
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights… (James 1:17)
There are stories of blessings of God to folks in dire need, right in the nick of time, and perfectly suited to the person’s need at the time.
The “perfect” gift is suited personally for us. It may be a material blessing of God’s provision, but normally it’s the intangibles we spoke of in Monday night’s class: peace, joy, contentment… those kind of things that come from knowing that God is right there by your side.
I love nature. I love the outdoors. I love wildlife. Everything from bear, to deer, to spiders, to butterflies, to geese. I especially love geese and God knows it. I love how they fly in formation. I love the honking sound they make as they fly.
Whenever I see a formation of geese, I know it’s God’s special message to me: “I’m right here by your side”. It’s personal. It’s just for me. When you see a formation of geese in the air, you don’t think the same thing I do.
God wants to send you and I special blessings, personalized just for each of us. The best thing is that they’re FREE. Listen…
To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. (Revelation 21:6b)
Without cost. FREE! Are you thirsty? That’s all it takes.
