Don’t Be Misled


So don’t be misled, my dear brothers and sisters. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.

James 1:16-17 NLT



I believe one of the greatest lies Satan perpetrates on humanity is, “God is not good!”

Satan tries to convince humanity that God doesn’t like us. God is against us. God is withholding all the fun from us. God is lying to us about what is really fun and fulfilling.

Many people have bought Satan’s lies. They believe God is holding out on us. But James warns us, “Don’t be misled.” James tells us, “Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father.”

God’s gifts to us are good and perfect. They are not hard or difficult. They are good. His way is the best way.

There is nothing in sin that will bring ultimate satisfaction or fulfillment. Sin promises a lot and delivers a little.



Holy Spirit, help me see the truth. Help me realize God is for me. Help me know right from wrong.
