God says He is ready to release his good and perfect gifts to you this month of August 2012

What is a gift?

Oxford advanced learner's dictionary defines gift as a thing one gives to somebody especially on a special occasion to say thank you for the thing(s) already done. There is an adage which says you cannot give what you don't have, therefore we want to verify the above statement said by God to us this month.

Does God have anything to offer?

Ps 50:12 says "If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine and all that is in it". This verse tells us that God owns the world and all that is in it.

The next question is What does He have?

James 1:7 has this to say "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. This verse says God has good and perfect gifts.

Are these gifts meant for me or not?

Ps 31:19 gives us the answer "How great is your goodness, which you have stored for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sights of men who take refuge in you". Ps 23:5 confirms this also "You prepare a feast before me in the presence of mine enemies".

Who are those who fear God?

They are the disciples of Jesus Christ who are doing His will upon the earth. Those who have faith in Him only and serve Him day and night. Those who are hooked to His teachings and doctrines and doing them. These gifts are for you if you are in these categories.

How can I have them (the gifts)?

Isa 30:19 "O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem you will weep no more. How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears He will answer you. Isa 58:9 confirms it "Then you will call and the Lord will answer, you will cry for help and He will say here Am I". You can have them by calling upon God through Jesus Christ His son.

Rom 8:32 has this say "He did not spare His own son but freely gave Him up for us all how will He not also, along with Him graciously give all things?
