GOD GIVES GOOD GIFTS

“If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Matthew 7:11

 

In our opening scripture, Jesus was making a comparison between God our Heavenly Father and our earthly father. He did that to encourage the people to feel free to ask God for things because God was interested in giving them good gifts. They were afraid of approaching God. They saw God as the creator who cannot be related with. Most believers think of God the same way. That was the mindset Jesus was trying to deal with. So he said in verse 7-10, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?” Wonderful scripture! Think about yourself. If your children ask you for things, will you not give them? Jesus is saying that our Heavenly Father is much more interested in giving us what we ask. All you need to do is make sure He is indeed your Heavenly Father. You do this by being born again and living right. Once done, ask whatever you want. As long as is a good thing that will bless you, bless people around you, and give glory to His name, He will give it to you.

You know, some people think God brings both good and bad situations. This is wrong. God gives only good gifts. James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” The bad gifts people receive are from the enemy and not from God. What God does is to deliver his children from such situations and turn it into a miracle. In this month of fulfillment of prophecies, be bold to ask for the good promises made over your life to come to pass this month. With this new mindset you have, you will see them come to pass speedily.
