“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the FATHER OF LIGHTS, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.”
Are you going through a dark time physically, emotionally, or spiritually? It can happen to even the most dedicated follower of Christ. What are we to do during dark trials, temptations, and despair? Remember the truth: God is the FATHER OF LIGHTS. Regarding this verse, Charles Ryrie writes, “God is the source of all light – physical, intellectual, moral, and spiritual – and He does not change.”* If we need a change, then we do well to look to the FATHER OF LIGHTS and follow His advice on moral, physical, intellectual, and spiritual matters. That’s where we’ll regain the light we desperately need.
Lord, we praise You, Father of Lights! Fill us with the Light of Your Presence.
