SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/19- “Our Actions—Our Plans—Our Success!” (Proverbs 16:3)

Premise Question: What is the biggest key, being the most critically important and absolutely necessary factor, in order for us to achieve success in life?

Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed.
(‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭3‬ NLT)

When you deliberately choose to entrust all that you do in life to The LORD, with regards to your thoughts, behavior, the path you take and the manner in which you walk and comport yourself upon that path, as well as, any course of action you may involve yourself in as you are traveling on that path; you can enthusiastically expect, being fully assured, that your well thought out, with specifics, developed plan, shall achieve the satisfying and fulfilling desired result, which will be to experience a growing, thriving and flourishing success in life. (Proverbs 16:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The biggest key, to any successful plan being implemented and coming to fruition, is that we must first and foremost, commit, submit and entirely subjugate all of our plans, in all of their details and all that they may entail, to The LORD, for His stamp of approval. This will guarantee a resounding success, in everything we do.

Here’s a few scrips to consider and take note of: Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you. (‭Psalms‬ ‭37‬:‭5‬ NLT) Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭5-6‬ NLT) We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭1-2‬ NLT)

Our success, in our actions and plans, are directly tied to our coming into agreement with Papa God’s divine will and purpose and being under the authority and approval of The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/18- “Wait For It—Patiently”… (Psalm 27:14)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/18- “Wait For It—Patiently”… (Psalm 27:14)

Premise Question: What does waiting patiently look like, and how do we, as believers, being members of The Company of The Redeemed, just do it?

Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD. (‭Psalms‬ ‭27‬:‭14‬ NLT)

Stay calm and resolved, with an audacious hopeful expectation, that The LORD will assuredly come to your rescue and aid, when you are facing or going through trial, trouble and tumult. Express and exhibit a tenacious fortitude, standing strong, as a valiant, stalwart servant of The Most High, with nothing to fear. Absolute Yes! Most assuredly stay calm and resolved, continuing to serve with gladness and joy, while waiting for the certain help and aid of The LORD to come to your rescue. (Psalm 27:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What waiting looks like, and how the believing child, of The Most High, does it. It starts and finishes with: always exhibiting faith and complete trust in The LORD, by staying calm and resolute in spite of the difficulty or hardship one may be experiencing and going through, by not quitting and giving up, no matter the intensity or stress of the trial, trouble or tumult, and by staying determined, being ever vigilant and relentless in the pursuit of fulfilling the divine will and purpose of Papa God, and to do this, with an attitude of gladness and joy, while always serving The LORD and others. So, “Wait For It … Wait For It—Patiently!” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/17- “Come Together!” (Matthew 18:20)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/17- “Come Together!” (Matthew 18:20)

Premise Question: What is the most significantly important principle to accept and understand, when we, as believers, come together to meet; and, is actually “The Key Factor” to ever getting anything accomplished, that when implemented, will bring to fruition, Papa God’s perfectly designed, ultimate divine plan, His perfect purpose and will?

For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭18‬:‭20‬ NLT)

For, anytime, anywhere, and for any reason, even if there are only two or three of you, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, that when you come together in agreement, to meet in My Name, I, The LORD, will always be there, in your midst, with you. (Matthew 18:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is agreement! Simply put: The LORD is with us, when we meet, if we are in agreement! Otherwise, not so much. For its not the where, what place or the why, for what reason, or even a specific set time, nor is it who we may be meeting with, or the count and amount of who we’re meeting with, but it is how we choose to meet, by coming together, being in one accord, in a spirit of co-operation, uniting our hearts, as one, in The Name of The LORD, setting aside our differences, by accepting the principle of agreement and then connecting to it, through the implementation and application of it, to every situation and circumstance we are confronted or challenged with; choosing to always come together in agreement, every time we meet, for whatever the reason. So, as I use some words from an old song of my youth: “Come together, right now, over me!” I believe The LORD used the principle and concept of these words long before the Beatles did, just sayin. Here’s just three of the many scrips for us to carefully consider: Amos 3:3, 1 Corinthians 1:10 and Psalms 133…Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/16- “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!” (Philippians 4:13)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/16- “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!”
(Philippians 4:13)

Premise Question: Can, will and does the strength of The LORD truly empower and equip us to do everything?

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
(‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NLT)

Armed with, “a can do attitude of fortitude,” being fully assured, that no matter what I may have to face or endure, in this life, I will always be sufficiently supplied, by and through Jesus Christ, with His efficacious power and might, to always have the courage, (nerve) to face anything, always being equal to any task and up for every challenge. (Philippians 4:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! There is nothing that is equal to, nor can stand against, the all powerful, all mighty, strength of The LORD! The only caveat though, is whether or not we, as believers, choose to place our complete trust, faith and reliance upon The LORD, and His true and faithful, intentional promise, given to us in this verse of His Holy Writ. For we must take upon ourselves the mind, and attitude, with the perspective of Christ, that being: a “can do attitude of fortitude,” with a resolute determination of “persistent perseverance.” Then, we’ll have the strength, courage and nerve to face anything and everything we may have to encounter, or must actually go through, in this life! Check out Romans 15:5 and Philippians 2:5. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/15- “Hearts And Motives—Rewards For Deeds!” (Jeremiah 17:10)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/15- “Hearts And Motives—Rewards For Deeds!” (Jeremiah 17:10)

Premise Question: Is it ever prudent or wise, to think or believe, that we can cover or hide, the true intentions, thoughts and inclinations, of our hearts and minds, from the all knowing, all hearing ears and all seeing eyes, of The LORD God Almighty, our Papa God?

But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭17‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Knowing and comprehending that the human heart is the most beguiling and despicably fraudulent living thing on the face of the earth, and is also filled with the potential for deeds and acts of pernicious evil, I, The LORD God Almighty, with due diligence, explore, evaluate and examine the character, disposition and inclinations of every heart of humankind; investigating, assaying and appraising even the supposed hidden intentions and affinities of every heart. So, you can be absolutely sure, that I, Papa God, will not overlook anyone, by neglecting to confer and bestow the appropriate recompense and renumeration upon everyone on the face of the earth, according to their true intentions, actions and deeds. (Jeremiah 17:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! Not even remotely a slim sliver of a slight possibility or chance! For Papa God is all knowing, all seeing, and flat out hears all, and then, rewards all, according to their true intentions, actions and deeds. We need to be ever mindful of this certain and absolute truth, for nothing can or shall ever be hidden from Him. So, be wise, prudent and transparent, being full of integrity, and oh, by the way, don’t ever attempt it! For it will of a surety, not go well for anyone who does! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/14- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/14- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

Premise Question: Are there illustrious examples today, that are clearly seen, being put on display, exemplified and recognized, before our very own eyes and ears, that show this kind and level, of the extreme ultimate expression, of sacrificial love, where all is given for another, without expectation of a return, and, with nothing held in reserve, for one’s own regard?

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (‭John‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬ NLT)

There never has been, nor will there ever be, a more significant or magnificent display, of the ultimate expression, of true, selfless, sacrificial love, than when someone chooses to lay down their own life, in service, and then, ultimately death, for another. (John 15:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Absolute YES! The LORD Jesus Christ is, of course, the greatest example of “No Greater Love,” as He not only laid down His life voluntarily, giving His life, as the ultimate perfect sacrifice, for the redemption of all of humankind, but He also gave up the splendor and majesty of His heavenly throne, humbling Himself, by taking off His regal robes of glory and descending to earth to become just like us, experiencing life in human form and on an earthly level; so that, He could, by laying His life down for us, renew, restore and reconcile us back to Papa God, to forever live in His glorious light and wonderful presence.

The great examples of this kind and expression of love today, I believe, is seen in the way soldiers volunteer to serve their country, family, friends and fellow citizens; willing to lay their lives down in service and death for their fellow soldiers and others. It is also, I believe, seen in the lives of first responders, who daily are asked, by fellow citizens, to put their lives on the line for others, without regard for their own safety. There are many others that could be put up as wonderful examples; such as, all those, from different walks of life, that constantly put the care and welfare of the lives of others before themselves, especially those who put themselves in harms way, when dealing with those who are sick, afflicted, dealing with various kinds of infirmities, are weak and diseased, and doing all of this without any personal regard or safety for themselves.

We all, as fellow believers, ought to be willing to put our lives on the line, in serving and dying for others; for there truly is no greater example of our love for one another, than this: to be willing to die for another. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/13- “Don’t Give Up—No Matter What!” (Galatians 6:9)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/13- “Don’t Give Up—No Matter What!”
(Galatians 6:9)

Premise Question: What is it, that would have to happen in our lives, that would be so annoying, that it causes us to give up, quit, becoming exasperated, to the point of complete exhaustion and total burnout, so that we would succumb, by throwing in the proverbial towel?

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬ NLT)

So, let’s understand a vitally important spiritual principle, by getting it straightway, upfront and right out into the open. Perish and completely put to death any thought of ever giving up on achieving and doing what is right, just, and that which fulfills Papa God’s will and purpose for your life! Don’t even entertain it a little bit. Don’t ever become lackadaisical or passive in your effort to serve others and please Papa God; for when you make the decision, in your heart, to trust Papa God and to not ever give up, no matter what, there will come a time, a perfect and exact moment in time, when you shall experience and receive your just reward, which shall be a huge blessing of an abundant harvest, from The LORD. (Galatians 6:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Whatever it is, that would cause us to give in or up and throw in the proverbial towel, we need to decide right now, in our hearts and minds, deep within the within, that we shall have a calm resolve and an utter dependence and reliance upon The LORD, that no matter what, we are not going to give in or up, but we are going to press in and up to Papa God, trusting Him for the victory and the accomplishment of His divine will and purpose, in our lives! So, let’s all be determined to always: Call on Him! (Jeremiah 33:3) Wait on Him! (Isaiah 40:31) Don’t give in to fear! (Lamentations 3:57) Desire to do His will! (Psalm 40:8) And, Always draw and stay close to Him! (James 4:8) And, Don’t ever give up, not matter what! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!” (John 10:28-30)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!”
(John 10:28-30)

Premise Question: Do believers, those who’ve placed their faith and complete trust in The LORD Jesus Christ, by calling on His Name through confession and believing in Him and His resurrection; thereby, having accepted and received Papa God’s gracious provision of a forever safe and secure eternity, ever have any reason to fear what the future may hold?

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.” (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭28-30‬ NLT)

I, The LORD Jesus Christ, with great joy and delight, choose to grant to all those who hear my voice and follow after Me—life without end. A life, in which, there shall not ever be a reason for them to fear what the future may hold, for they shall forever be safe and secure, never ceasing to exist. There isn’t any power in heaven or on earth, that will ever be able to steal or take them from Me, nor will there be anyone or anything that will have the capacity or power to abduct them from Papa God’s almighty grip, as it is He that has given them to Me. Know this, Papa God and I are One. (John 10:28-30 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! For according to Papa God’s faithful promise, written down in His Holy Writ, there’s not anything or anyone that is powerful enough to wrest us away from the tightly held, firm grasp of Papa God’s forever safe and secure hands; in which, He is and forever shall be, in possession of our very lives, our eternal souls. So, for the believer, they are fully assured, by The LORD God Almighty Himself, that they are forever and ever, eternally safe and secure, within His all powerful and sure, loving grip. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/11/15- “Papa God’s Inexplicable Plan Made Plain!” (Ephesians 1:9-10)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/11/15- “Papa God’s Inexplicable Plan Made Plain!” (Ephesians 1:9-10)

Premise Question: Must we, who are believers, come up under the Supreme authority and control of The Headship of Jesus Christ, in order to experience and enjoy the good pleasures, the joy and all the benefits, that come with the relationship of Sonship?

God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭9-10‬ NLT)

Papa God, because of what His Son Jesus Christ has accomplished in providing us with the opportunity to enjoy the privileged relationship of Sonship, is now making plain and simple, so that all may understand and enjoy Papa God’s good pleasure, with great benefits, His unfathomable, being completely incomprehensible and utterly inexplicable, perfectly designed, divinely inspired plan and purpose, with respect to The Headship of His Son, Jesus Christ; which, by the way, will bring to fruition the fullness of Papa God’s own good pleasure and eternally glorious joy. Now, here’s how the plan and purpose of Papa God is going to come together: There is a specific moment in time, being completely perfect and preordained, that Papa God will usher in His predetermined, divinely designed, inspired purpose and intentional plan, of placing everything, in all of creation, whether it is in heaven or on earth, under, beneath the incomparable supreme power, control and dominion, of The Headship of Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s preordained, planned relationship, between The Headship of Jesus Christ and The Sonship of the redeemed, is clearly delineated, by Him, through Paul the apostle of Jesus Christ. For what was once inexplicable, is now, made plain and simple, being easy to comprehend, by all who would accept Papa God’s perfectly designed, divinely inspired, intentionally predetermined purpose and plan, of making His Son, Jesus Christ, The Head over everything—in heaven and on the earth, so that all of humankind may have the ability and gracious opportunity, to experience the full relationship of Sonship. No Headship, no Sonship…no Sonship, no eternal joy, peace, and Papa God’s good pleasure for anyone. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/10- “Controlled By Love—The Love Of Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 10, 2015

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/10- “Controlled By Love—The Love Of Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

Premise Question: Is it a real possibility, being that it would actually happen, for authentic believers, (true followers of Christ) to overcome their old nature, (their corrupt spiritual DNA they are born with) and thus, no longer live unto and solely for themselves, but be transformed, by taking on a new nature, (the perfect spiritual DNA of Christ) and live a life that successfully emulates the life of Christ?

Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭14-15‬ NLT)

Whether you think we are crazy or not, it matters not, because what really matters, is that we allow the love of Christ to control what we say, what we do, and how we live. In as much as, we are fully persuaded that Christ laid His life down, in death, upon the cross, for all of humankind, we are, furthermore, also fully compelled and persuaded that we all have now lain our old lives down, dying to the sinful nature we were born into this world with. Understand this; Christ chose to die for all of humankind, so that anyone who chooses to be transformed, by receiving and accepting a new nature and life from The LORD Jesus Christ, will no longer live their lives unto and for themselves, but will rather, live their lives in total submission to the will and purpose of Christ, Whom offered up His life upon the cross and then, rose from the grave victorious, for all of humankind. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! It is entirely possible, and should be the norm of what is taking place, in all our lives, and for all to see; that being, the transformation and transition from our old nature, the corrupt spiritual DNA we were born into this world with, to a new nature, the one provided for us through and by the death and resurrection of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, and the empowering and enabling of His Spirit; which is His perfect divine spiritual DNA. But, in order for this transformation and transition to happen, we, as authentic believers and followers of Christ, must choose to yield ourselves completely, no longer being controlled by our old sinful nature, but now being controlled by the divine nature and love of Christ. In order for this to happen, we must first die to our old spiritually corrupt DNA nature, and then, be transformed, by coming alive to the new spiritually divine nature of Christ. For if we are still operating out of our old corrupt DNA nature, then we are not living out of our new divine nature, and therefore, will not produce what is good, right and holy, but will only produce according to our old nature, which is spiritually corrupt! So, for Christ’s sake, and ultimately your sake, choose to die to self and the old corrupt spiritual DNA, and be transformed, by coming alive, being reborn, with a new spiritual divine nature, the DNA of Christ! Our DNA- Damned Nature Already…Christ’s DNA- Divine Nature Always…Blessings…
