Jesus is the good gift from God the Father – Bible verse about faith

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above

James 1: 17

This Bible verse about faith was written by James, the half brother of Jesus.   If anybody knew the gift of God it would be James. It is found in the a New Testament letter of James. He lived and grew up with Jesus, the firstborn of their mother Mary. James witnessed first-hand Jesus’ sinless and invariably perfect life that had no shadow or anything questionable.  Jesus was the spotless Son of God – the perfect gift to the world.

This Bible verse about faith in James is reminiscent of the scripture verse in Matthew’s gospel which says, “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.   For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.   Or who is there among you, who, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?   Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent?   If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

By considering these verses together we can be confident that we can ask the Father in faith and we will receive only good things.  We can also seek, and the idea here is to be diligent in seeking and God will reward you with Heaven’s best, His very good gift.  We can also keep knocking on the door and when the door opens in God’s perfect timing, it will be worth striving for. Hope can be that doorway too.

Today, let us take our hopes and dreams to the Father and press into Him in faith knowing that in Him there is fullness of joy and a hope for our futures.
