Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
One day in 1952, a U.S. Air Force crew south of Guam saw islanders waving to them. The crew gathered items on the plane, packed them up, attached a parachute, and dropped the crate as they circled the island. That was the beginning of the longest sustained humanitarian airdrop in history. It’s been going on now for 64 years. Last Christmas, more than 20,000 people in the remote islands of Micronesia received needed supplies in what is now called Operation Christmas Drop.
The Lord does the same for us every moment. According to James 1:17, every good and perfect gift comes down from above. If we truly understood this, we’d go through every day muttering: Thank You for my hot shower… clean clothes… sunny sky… schoolbooks… workplace… keeping me out of that wreck… giving me that job… hot supper… warm bed…. Thank You especially for the Lord Jesus who was airdropped from heaven to be my Savior.
Every good thing comes from the Lord, who has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ (see Ephesians 1:3).
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; / Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; / Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
2 Samuel 14 – 16
