Walking in the Spirit

Consider the Source 
God is our source. All the good in our lives comes from Him. It may go through your hard work; it may be spoken from your parent’s mouth or funded by a Christian brother or sister, but do not 
get confused. The hand of God is where all good things originate no matter what other hands they pass through.  
“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 1:17, NIV 
You never know when God will get you over your situation through someone who gets under your skin. God may show you how to love through your unsaved co-worker who taps her pen 
non-stop all day long. He may plug you into your perfect spot by letting the last two promotions go to people who have less experience. You may leave yourself with next to nothing by giving so 
much to others and then slip on your jeans and find a couple of twenties in the pocket. Keep your heart and mind open, accepting God’s thing however He chooses to deliver it. And do not forget 
to give your Creator all the credit. 
Your employer might write your check, but the Lord gives you the ability to do the work. God also provides you with the health you need to make wealth, the mind to be creative, the gifts and 
talents, the way you see things, your perspective – all God. You are not entitled to anything, but through Christ, you will have everything you need to fulfill His plan for your lifeBe thankful; 
don’t take any good thing for granted, and in all things, consider your Source.
