Grace and Glory – Every Good Gift

January 6, 2020

Psalms 84:11-12For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts,
How blessed are those who trust in You!

Grace and Glory
Sun and Shield –Psalms 84:11
Every good gift from the Father above –James 1:17
No good thing does He withhold
From His children of light –Ephesians 5:8
From those whose walk is upright –Micah 2:7;Psalms 34:8-10,84:11
Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord! –Psalms 84:12
.
Matthew 7:7-8,11Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. …
… 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 what is good to those who ask Him!

From NetBible Mt 7:7
seek[2212] = to seek [in order to find out] by thinking, meditating, reasoning, to enquire into, to crave
– to seek (literally or figuratively); specially,
(by Hebraism) to worship (God)
.
From NetBible Mt 7:11
* The provision of the good gifts is probably a reference to the wisdom and guidance supplied in response to repeated requests. The teaching as a whole stresses not that we get everything we want, but that God gives the good that we need.

Romans 8:32 AMPC … He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?

The greatest gift that you could receive this Christmas day, is a deeper revelation of just how much our God and Father loves you.
.
Philemon 1:6 AMP … I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective and powerful because of your accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ.

From NetBible Philemon 1:6

  • NET … I pray that the faith you share with us may deepen your understanding of every blessing that belongs to you in Christ.
  • NIV … I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
  • NASB … and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake.
  • NLT … You are generous because of your faith. And I am praying that you will really put your generosity to work, for in so doing you will come to an understanding of all the good things we can do for Christ.
  • *The result is that Paul prays for Philemon that he will be equipped to encourage and love the saints more as he himself is brought to a place of deeper understanding of every spiritual blessing he has in Christ; out of the overflow of his own life, he will minister to others.

Sharing your faith in Christ increases the knowledge of His goodness!

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!

Mt7_11

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!
