Advent 2018 – Day 13

We are over halfway through Advent already! Thanks for returning to read about God’s “I WILL” promises!

Every year my husband and I shop on line and in stores, searching for the perfect Christmas gift for each person on our list. The process can be mentally and physically exhausting. Even trying to find a single gift for a grandchild can be frustrating if we aren’t sure what the recipient really needs or wants.

In Malachi 3:10, we read: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!”

Our Heavenly Father is waiting to pour out gifts upon us. The process of choosing gifts for his children is not exhausting. He already knows exactly what we need, with the right size and color and style! And he selects not a single present but an abundance of gifts for each child!

Jesus said in Mt. 7:9-11: “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”

Every year I ask God for a special Christmas gift, and he always surprises me with a unique blessing. One year it was a publishing contract for my book. Last December it was a successful spinal surgery. Have you asked God for your Christmas gift this year?
