• HEAVENLY, HOLY FATHER GOD – the LORD GOD ALONE!
THE BLESSINGS OF THE FATHER EXTEND TO HIS CHILDREN
Proverbs 20:7 (KJV) 7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
GOOD GIFTS - JUST ASK THE FATHER
Matthew 7:11 (KJV) 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
WE CALL UPON ABBA FATHER BY THE INNER WORKINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IN US.
Galatians 4:6 (KJV)
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
JESUS TAUGHT US TO ASK - GIVE US THIS DAY...
Matthew 6:8-13 (KJV)
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
FREE GIFT, GIFT OF GRACE, GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, FREE GIFT OF LIFE
Romans 5:15-18 (KJV) 15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
FREE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE
Romans 6:23 (KJV) 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
EAT, DRINK, WORK IS A GIFT OF GOD

Ecclesiastes 5:19 (KJV) 19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
GIFT OF HOLY GHOST
Acts 2:38 (KJV) 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
GIFTS ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF THE GIFT OF CHRIST
Ephesians 4:7 (KJV) 7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT COMES FROM FATHER GOD
James 1:17 (KJV) 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
CUP OF BLESSING OVERFLOWS TO BLESS OTHERS
Psalms 23:5b (KJV)
5b ...thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
WITH EVERY GIFT WE RECEIVE, IT IS TO BE SHARED WITH OTHERS.
1 Peter 4:10-11 (KJV) 10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
