“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” -James 1:17

This verse is in the context of not being deceived into thinking that God tempts you. Verse 13 says, “Let no one say when he is tempted, ‘I am being tempted by God,’ for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.”

Sometimes, when I am being tempted, I get to thinking that it is a test from God. And though I don’t outright think it, in the back of my mind, I sometimes identify the temptation as that of God, as coming from Him. Here, He taught me the truth. While He may test me by letting the temptation take place, the temptation itself comes from me and my own human desire to do evil.

This verse emphasizes that only good can ever come from God. Anything less than perfect is not of God.
