One of the most powerful ways to radically change your outlook on life is to shift your focus from grumbling to gratitude. Today’s scripture is a reminder that we are blessed and where our blessings come from.
Every good and perfect gift that we receive comes from the hand of God. Whether it’s our health, or our families, every blessing comes from the Father of heavenly lights. When we make the conscious choice to count our blessings rather than our problems, we will begin to see our trials in a new light—God’s heavenly light.
Focusing on God’s faithfulness and His unchanging goodness will help you to meet your current circumstance with confidence. You will begin to see that whatever looks like anything but a “good and perfect gift” is actually a blessing in the making. As your journey of faith continues to unfold, the tests and trials along the way will soon translate into testimonies.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1:17 (CSB)
