“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17 NIV
This season is always a wonderful time of the year where gifts are given. I know growing up as a child I could hardly wait to open my Christmas gifts. On the days before Christmas seeing them under the Christmas tree and wondering what was in them. And I must admit little has changed as an adult!
Finally the wait was over and it was time for our family to open our gifts. I don’t know about your household but we were always very orderly one person opening one gift at a time. Oh the agony as a kid wanting to get on with the program!
But what would that be like if all those wonderful, beautifully wrapped gifts were never unwrapped and enjoyed?
For too many in the body of Christ there are many gifts, promises of God, that have been given but they’ve never been received, unwrapped and enjoyed.
Promises our Heavenly Father Himself has provided. Truly amazing promises! These gifts, His promises, are far better than anything we could find under a Christmas tree.
Promises of salvation, deliverance, healing, health, wholeness, love, joy, peace, victory, guidance, prosperity and so many more.
I would encourage you to open your Bible and look for those gifts, His promises. And for each you find receive it by faith as yours. Receive it, unwrap it and enjoy it!
