S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James was the half-brother of Jesus and would have known Jesus intimately. He first of all tells us that anything good that any of us have ever experienced in life has come to us from our Lord, Who is always in the light. He is the light and never changes like shifting shadows do.
“You Can Count On JESUS!” That’s what this passage is saying. Your friends will change. Relationships change. Your job may change. Often one’s spouse will change and actually leave. The longer you live, the more unsure you become of just about everything around you. However, there are two things you can count on. First of all, “You Can Count On JESUS!” Because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8). He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deut.31:6b). And … He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Prov. 18:24b). The Second thing you can count on is how lost, insecure, and afraid you are without Jesus. Let’s don’t think about that second one too much. All you really need to know is … “You Can Count On JESUS!”
Thank You this AM that You are here with me right now. Thank You that when all else fails You will never fail. I’m counting on You again today. Amen
