Gene’s Daily Scriptural Postings.

A great many, even well-meaning people, wrongly blame God for all kinds of bad stuff happening today. The enemy likes nothing better than to see God blamed for all sorts of death and destruction. This is because the enemy knows it's impossible to intimately trust someone you think might cause you harm at any moment. The enemy also knows we humans are only truly powerful and effective against him when we abide in Christ. It is vital that you possess unshakable revelation of this core truth: God is good and the devil is bad. Only good and perfect gifts come down from the Father in heaven. Jesus said he came that we might have abundant life, to the full until it overflows. It is the enemy who steals, kills, and destroys. Stop believing the lie that God caused the bad things in your life. Realize that's just the enemy trying to sabotage your relationship with the Father.
Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 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 1:16-17 (NIV)
