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
He said, “I came naked from my mother’s womb,
and I will be naked when I leave.
The Lord gave me what I had,
and the Lord has taken it away.
Praise the name of the Lord!”
Job 1:21 NLT
Psalm 119:68 NIV
Every good and perfect gift comes from above. It is true - God puts Good things in our hands. But, as Job tells us, He will also allow things to be removed from our hands.
Psalm 119 reassures us of this one thing: He is Good and only does Good - in the giving as well as in the taking away.
