GOOD THINGS FROM GOD  by Cz Olayemi

 

 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no alteration or shadow caused by change.

                                                                                                        James 1:17

       I like the way God qualifies the gifts He gives. They are good and they are perfect. He gives material things and financial wealth for our enjoyment. The gift of life, salvation, and other Christian experiences are from God. So are such virtues as wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and various abilities.

       However, Elizabeth Elliott said, “if we hold tightly to anything given to us , unwilling to let it go when the time comes to let it go or unwilling to allow it to be used as the giver means it to be used, we stunt the growth of the soul…if God gave it to me, we say, ‘ It’s mine. I can do what I want with it.’ No, it is ours to thank Him for and ours to offer back to Him.” Your life and everything you have comes from God and belongs to Him.
