Casting Shadows

fullsizeoutput_f7bEvery generous act and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights; with Him there is no variation or shadow cast by turning.”

James 1:17

What does James mean by “shadow cast by turning?”  other translations word it read as “never changing” or casting a shadow due to change.  Does it mean He will never turn His back on us? Cast a shadow prohibiting His light from shining on us?  My interpretation is just that.  Gods light shines upon us always.  His love is always there.  If there is shadow then it is human nature to seek it out.  It is us, humans, finding the shadows trying to do things in our own strength and not needing God.  It’s been my experience and observation that it never works out well for us.  Only with His strength can we get through the stress and the blessing.

Have a good Father’s Day weekend.
