The Character of God James 1:17 "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." God is good and cares about what concerns you. He’s a compassionate God. A good Father wants to bless His children so how much more does our Heavenly Father want to bless us with all good things. 3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” This is speaking of your spirit, soul and body and shows he wants us to succeed and prosper in every area of life. When we look up salvation in the Greek, it means rescue or safety [physically or morally], deliverance, health, preservation, save, deliver or protect (literally or figuratively)do well, make whole Jesus said: "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. " (John 10:10) This is how we know if it something from God or the devil. Is Killing? Stealing? destroying? Then its not God. Jesus plainly tells us who is the source of these things and we to believe Him and what God's Word says. Many Christians think everything that happens, even tragedies, are from God. But that’s just all they have ever heard for years and years so they don’t know this verse or either haven’t gotten the revelation of it. Some think every time you do something wrong God’s going to hit you over the head. That’s their concepts of God. Jesus said; If you’ve seen me you’ve seen the Father. What is our Father like and what are His works like? Psalm 145:9 "The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works." Jesus told the religious leaders that they were just teaching their own doctrines but calling them God’s commandments. When we do this we’re "making the word of God of none effect " (Mark 7:7-8,13) in our life . The Lord said My people perish for lack of knowledge , So its important to renew our mind with the Word of God and make the decision to agree with what He says. We don’t base or interpret God’s word by our experience. That’s backwards. We examine our experience in the light of what God’s Word says. If we don’t know if something is from God, we won’t have the faith to be delivered or healed or whatever the need is. We have to know its God’s will and not doubt but have faith He will answer us. And also we need to know so we won’t resist it. But we’re told resist the devil and he will flee. Jesus resisted him by saying ‘it is written’. And when we say what God says and quote His word he has to flee. Acts 10:38''How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.'' Oppression is not from God and sickness and disease is oppression from the enemy. Its says in 2 Cor. 4:4 satan is the god of this world. He will try to control our circumstances.
