SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/25/15- “The Search For Authenticity, Let Papa God Be The Final Arbiter!” (Psalm 139:23-24)
Premise Question: Is it ever a good idea or does it ever work out to our own advantage or benefit, when we try to manage, hold things back or keep things in our lives hidden away from others and The LORD?
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” (Psalms 139:23-24 NLT)
Thoroughly examine and scrutinize me, Sovereign Almighty Papa God, and know with certainty and a clear perception, completely understanding the very core of who I am at the innermost part of my being, the seat of my emotions; test and try me, in order to determine and evaluate my authenticity and genuineness, and clearly discern my mental anguish, as I am afflicted with great distress and concern. Perceive whether there be any displeasing, rebellious, insolent, unpleasant, disagreeable or repugnant manner, unacceptable attitude or inappropriate behavior in me; for I fully surrender myself to Your leadership, Your purpose and perfect will for my life, being confidently assured that You shall guide and direct my path upon the everlasting divine way of Your eternal truth and life. (Psalm 139:23-24 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We don’t ever really gain any kind of edge, benefit or advantage when we, on our own, try to just manage our sin, challenges and issues going on in our lives; by keeping things hidden in compartments of our lives, away from the view and knowledge of others, under lock, chains and keys of secrecy. For all that we end up accomplishing is a self-imposed incarceration of being held captive in a prison of our own doing and our own mind! We will never truly be successful in trying to keep those things under wraps, as they eventually become unmanageable and begin to come apart at the seams, unravelling at an alarming rate, completely out of our’s or anyone else’s control, save The LORD’S! That’s why it is so vitally important to be open, transparent and accountable to The LORD and others, by confessing our sins, faults, mistakes, misgivings and failings with those, who also confess their own sin, challenges and issues with The LORD and others. The LORD doesn’t need us to tell Him what’s going on in our lives, even the parts we think are hidden and buried deep, within our within, with a no access or trespassing sign, gate and huge lock and chain on it! For in The LORD’S case, it’s completely impossible to keep anything hidden away from His view or knowledge, as He sees all, hears all and is fully aware of all, at all times, on all occasions, as nothing ever escapes His omniscience. Papa God wants us to be open and transparent with Him, because it is what we need and should do, in order to come clean, be made clean and have the ability to have a just, right, satisfying and fulfilling, authentic, intimate, personal relationship with Papa God; as this will work to our greatest advantage and extreme benefit in every area and compartment of our lives. So, in our search for authenticity, validation and acceptance, let Papa God be the final arbiter of everything in our lives, as He will faithfully lead and guide us upon the path of eternal truth, life, with complete joy and perfect bliss. Blessings…
