Thoughts: Many names are used for God – Lord, Father, Creator, the Almighty. James 1:17 calls God “The Father of lights.” When James wrote, lights were not plentiful, nor were they easily obtained.
Of course, there were natural lights – made by God – the sun, the moon, the stars, lightning. Man had discovered fire and had made candles and lanterns. Natural lights were not controllable. Man-made lights were temporary. But the Father of lights was not variable, nor was there any shadow of turning with Him.
“Great is thy faithfulness, great is they faithfulness. There is no shadow of turning with thee. Thou changest not, the compassions they fail not. Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.”
