Every good and perfect gift comes from the great God. Look at what He created. When you look at the material creation, you see a lot of shadows. For example, the planets cast shadows. But God is not that way. The book of James says with God there is “no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” He is brighter than the sun at high noon – 100 percent light. This is the total opposite of darkness and there isn’t a trace of evil in Him.
The expression “with whom” should read in whom is no varibleness, neither shadow of turning. “This is referring to our Father’s perfect character – God is 100 percent agape love. His goal is for us to become perfect as He is perfect (Matt. 5:48). God cannot sin. There isn’t even a speck of a shadow of evil in His nature. His love toward us is perfect and absolute – 100 percent light. He would never do anything to harm us spiritually. True Christians must know His character and totally trust Him – even in fiery trials.
Spiritual light should dazzle us millions of times more than the lights from the universe. God’s desires is for us to inherit all things and we have to cooperate with Him for that to happen. Nothing but good gifts come from the Father.
