James 1:17 – Verse of the Day 7/16/13
The first chapter of James repeatedly contrasts those things that are firm and steady to those which are flimsy and fleeting. The one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, “blown and tossed by the wind” (v. 6). The one who does not listen to God’s word and do it is like a person who looks into a mirror and forgets what he looks like (v. 24). In this verse James teaches us that God does not change, and that his gifts are good and trustworthy.
Take some time in prayer to thank God for the way that he has provided for you. Ask God to help you to trust him to provide for all your needs as He has promised. Most of all, ask Him to help you to believe that what he has provided for you is all you need.
