Matthew 7:7,11 AMP
7 Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

11 If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!

James 1:17 AMP
17 Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

… who does not change like shifting shadows. NIV
… with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. NASB
… Unlike them[the heavenly lights], He never changes or casts shifting shadows. NLT
… with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. NRSV
… with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. NKJV

 

Praise to God the Father of lights, He never changes or casts shifting shadows. Every good and perfect gift is from above, from Him. Lord Jesus help us come to You and  ask, trusting that You will answer. Help us to persist and not give up until we hear from You!

Every Good and Perfect Gift

March 2, 2012

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,

who does not change like shifting shadows. NIV
… with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. NASB
… Unlike them[the heavenly lights], He never changes or
casts shifting shadows. NLT
… with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. NRSV
… with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. NKJV

Trust in the Lord
Your heavenly Father, who created all of heaven’s lights
In the motion of these heavenly bodies
… there is variations of light and darkness
Unlike them, the Lord never changes.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, and His love/mercy endures forever! -Ps 136

Come to Him as His child trusting Him to answer

S-eek: Keep on looking, and you will find.
K-nock: Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. -Mt 7:7 NLT

Trust His answer to be good
Every good and perfect gift is from Him

Great is His faithfulness! -Lam 3:21-23
