Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/20- “Shelter, Shadow, Refuge, Fortress—The Almighty Is This And More!” (Psalms 91:1-2)

Premise Question: What does it mean to be in, and is there any other place to be, than in the shelter, shadow, refuge and fortress of The Almighty?

“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Anyone and everyone, no matter who they are or from whence they came, if they choose to live their life, by taking up permanent residence, in the presence and protection of The Supernally Most High, Sovereign Papa God, they shall forever be safe and secure, renewed and refreshed, completely at rest, under the covering of the ever watchful care and strong influence of the all powerful, all knowing, splendid magnificence, of The Almighty Himself. “I declare openly, unafraid and unashamed, that He, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty alone, is my sole place of refuge; for He is my defender and protector, the one I run to, as my strong tower of strength, my impenetrable fortress, my Redeemer, my LORD and Savior, my God and King, the only one I completely and confidently rely upon and place my trust in, as The Eternal Hope of my salvation.” (Psalms 91:1-2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When one is residing within the shelter of The Almighty’s presence, safely out of the reach and impact of the elements of the tumultuous storms of life, they are truly safe and secure in His arms, hidden and protected, being surrounded by a safe haven and harbor; kept away, also, from all incriminations and blame.

They are covered underneath and within the shadow of His far reaching wings; always under the watchful care and concern of The Almighty.

Those who are poor and needy are kept from danger and trouble, within the refuge of The Almighty; receiving aid and comfort, along with necessary and needed relief and provision. For it is always better to put your trust in The Almighty, rather than people or princes.

“A Mighty Fortress is our Papa God!” He is our stronghold, our rescuer! His Name is our Strong Fortress, and therefore, we will never be shaken!

There’s no place I would rather be, than here in the presence of The Almighty’s unfailing love, mercy and grace; for there is not a better place to be, than in the shelter, shadow, refuge and fortress of The Almighty! For He is every bit of that and so much more! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/19- “Hold On—Don’t Ever Let Go—No Matter What!” (Hebrews 10:35-36)

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: 09/19- “Hold On—Don’t Ever Let Go—No Matter What!” (Hebrews 10:35-36)

Premise Question: Is there, has there or will there ever be any good reason, righteous justification or vindicable mitigating circumstance, that could be construed as making it somewhat or even entirely understandable and completely acceptable, for being a determining factor, as to whether or not one should ever let go of their faith in The LORD?

“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.”
(‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:35-36‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So, do not abandon, by turning away from and letting go of, the firm grasp you now hold on your faith; that of having a fully assured belief and trust, that you shall be triumphant and declared a victorious Overcomer. For you will be rewarded, with an abundant supply of all that you have need of, in this life and the life to come, as you, with a sense of urgency, persist in making the greatest desire in your life, to be the pursuit of the fulfillment of Papa God’s divine purpose and will for your life. Then, you shall receive the just recompense and reward, of having everything that The LORD GOD Almighty has promised, given and provided to you. (Hebrews 10:35-36 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The absolute, as well as, being the only acceptable and beneficial answer to this premise question is: NOPE! For we should always be ready, willing and with The LORD’s very capable and extremely effective help, to persevere, with patient endurance, anything and everything, no matter what may come our way; regardless of the situation, scenario or circumstance.

We should not ever give up, or give in, by throwing the proverbial towel in the air, but we should always press into The LORD, by holding on tight, refusing to ever let go of Him and our faith in Him.

Thus, we are to utterly rely on Him and His strength, peace, comfort and provision to us, of giving to us whatever is needed to carry us on through to our ultimate victory.

So hold on tightly to your faith, without ever wavering; for Papa God can absolutely be trusted to come through for you. Therefore, be absolutely resolute, don’t ever put away or aside, nor ignore or neglect, The LORD or your faith; as it is not only not worth it or ever appropriate to do so, but it also will not ever truly work out to your benefit, favor or advantage, if you ever so choose to give up or give in, by letting go of the tight grasp you now have on your faith and upon The LORD!

Always remember: Hold On—Don’t Ever Let Go—No Matter What! For if you do not faint, better days and better things are just ahead, as well as, there being a most incredible, tremendous and incomparable reward, that most assuredly awaits you! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)

Posted on Updated on

ONE DAY EARLY POST:

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: 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)

Premise Question: Just how is it possible, that our High Priest, Jesus Christ, can fully understand every one of our weaknesses, our horrible trials and testings, as well as, our most arduous struggles and difficult challenges?

“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For we confidently profess, with full assurance, that we are enormously blessed, by knowing, as a matter of record, that our High Priest, The LORD Jesus Christ, has the unique capacity and ability of understanding all of our frailties, weaknesses and infirmities, that we may encounter in life; because He Himself personally, has vicariously experienced every one of them, all, just for us, by being tested, tried and tempted, in every manner, mode and fashion possibly known to humankind, and still, He was found to be faithful and true, for He did not succumb to the lower nature and yield to sin, for He, who was without sin, did not ever sin. (Hebrews 4:15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The reason we, every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, can be absolutely confident, with full assurance, that our High Priest, who is our redeeming LORD and Savior, has the exclusively unique and very important ability, to completely identify and then truly empathize with us, in all of our weaknesses, challenging trials and difficult testings, is because He, Jesus Christ Himself, was tested and certified, to be tried and true, completely authenticated, to be absolutely qualified and approved, in order to become the perfect sacrifice and substitute, to take our place, pay for our sin and become The Redeemer of all of humankind.

Because of His sinless life, as He never once yielded or succumbed to any temptation, trial or trouble that He encountered, or when He was challenged, confronted or affronted, and therefore, having never failed, faltered nor did He ever stumble in any of His ways, for He was perfect, holy and righteous, in every way, He did not ever sin!

That’s why He can totally relate, fully comprehend and understand us, no matter what we may have gone through, may be going through or may yet go through; for there is not anything that any of us can or will ever have to go through, that He, The LORD, hasn’t already experienced and overcome.

So, be encouraged today, with the knowledge and comfort, that The LORD Himself, personally knows and has gone through, anything and everything that we will face in this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Posted 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: 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Premise Question: Who of us really enjoys being disciplined, corrected, reprimanded and reproved; but, what would be the outcome if everyone that needed an appropriate rebuke, choose to truly, with joy, fully embrace the process, in an attitude of humility and complete submission?

“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

My dearly beloved precious child, decide right now to never refuse or ever reject The LORD GOD Almighty’s very deliberate and diligent, careful and loving, nurturing chastening of you. And, also choose to not ever become bitter or resentful of His faithful, considerate concern and resolute reproof of you; for it’s truly only done for your greatest good and benefit. Do always remember, that just like an earthly father will administer loving correction to his own children, that he delights in, so too, does Papa God only bring His merciful and loving correction upon those children whom He joyfully delights to lavish His gracious favor and unfailing love upon. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: One of the most difficult lessons, that everyone must learn, is the great value and tremendous blessings that loving, appropriate and consistent discipline brings and adds to a person’s life experience. Although it may seem quite difficult during the time the necessary correction is being administered, as it may be extremely hard to endure, once it has run its course, the wonderful, useful and greatly beneficial fruit that discipline produces in one’s life, is not only a benefit to the individual, but also to those they may come into contact with, and have interaction with, in various forms and different ways.

Remember, that The LORD never wastes anything that may happen to us or that we may go through, due to our own behavioral choices, decisions and actions or as a result of others and what they may do; that ends up having a direct affect upon our own lives.

The LORD will utilize all of it; in shaping, making, maturing and growing the individual, in order to fully accomplish His purpose, will and the unique mission in life that each of us are called to do.

So, child of Papa God, don’t ever reject, disdain or be upset when The LORD disciplines you—who are His greatly beloved and most cherished very own children, whom He joyfully delights in; and therefore will absolutely correct, discipline and appropriately reprimand, as needed, as well as, whenever and wherever it’s necessary! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/16- “When We Don’t Know What Or How, The Holy Spirit Always Does!” (Romans 8:26)

Posted 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: 09/16- “When We Don’t Know What Or How, The Holy Spirit Always Does!” (Romans 8:26)

Premise Question: Can the true believers in Jesus Christ, being authentic members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly rely and completely depend upon The Spirit of Christ—The Holy Spirit, that lives within the within of the innermost part of their being, to faithfully lead and guide them through every difficult challenge and trying time in their lives; with divine wisdom, even guiding them into and safely through their weaknesses and things that are not known or understood?

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As we eagerly, but with patience, wait for the appearing of our Blessed Hope—Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit Himself will come to our aid, with divine wisdom, assuring comfort, insertional inspiration and great insight. It is during those times in our lives, when we experience difficult afflictions, noisome infirmities, accompanied by overwhelming sorrows, that His superb and most sufficient and gracious aid arrives. For when we are confronted with these horrible obstacles and challenges, not knowing which way to turn, being at a complete loss of how to respond and pray, it is then, that The Holy Spirit Himself comes to our rescue, by coming along side us with deep concern, pleading our case before Papa God—The Almighty Heavenly Father, on our behalf; discerning perfectly our plight, that we cannot adequately nor amply convey, with words uttered or expressed. (Romans 8:26 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quick, succinct and absolutely true, right and completely faithful response to the premise question is: YES! The true believers in Jesus Christ, being members of The Company of The Redeemed, can without any equivocation, trepidation or timidity, absolutely fully rely on the dependability of the faithfulness and divine wisdom of The Holy Spirit, living and dwelling within them!

The true believer, should never be duped, pressured, bullied or coerced, by their fears, flesh, their own wisdom or the opinions and whims of the culture, nor by others about anything, but especially, when it comes to spiritual things and the things of The LORD!

The true believer will always choose to trust, rely and utterly depend upon The Holy Spirit in all things!

Remember, even when we don’t know what or how we ought to pray or move, The Holy Spirit always does and will faithfully lead and guide us, as well as, intercede for us, before Papa God, on our behalf. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/15- “The One Who Suffered And Died, Once And For All, At One Specific Time, For The Sins Of EVERYONE!” (1 Peter 3:18)

Posted 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: 09/15- “The One Who Suffered And Died, Once And For All, At One Specific Time, For The Sins Of EVERYONE!” (1 Peter 3:18)

Premise Question: What’s the reality, and vitally important significance, of why Jesus Christ was The One that was chosen, by Papa God, to suffer and die, in order to pay for the sins of everyone?

“Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For Jesus Christ, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD of all, willingly offered up His life, to the excruciating agony of physical pain, emotional distress and mental anguish; taking upon Himself, by bearing the shame and degradation once and for all, in His physical body, by being put to death on a cruel cross, for all of humankind’s sin. He, being the ultimate sacrifice of perfection and innocence, laid His life down on behalf of everyone—the imperfect and guilty, in order to open “The Way” that leads us back to restoration of a righteous relationship with Papa God—The Creator, who is The Father of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, who after His death, was made fully alive in The Spirit. (1Peter 3:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The real and only justifiable reason Jesus Christ was selected, by Papa God, to suffer and die a horrible death, in order to pay for the sins of every one of humankind, is, was and forever will be, because He was the only One who was uniquely qualified to fulfill the highest standards of absolute purity and holiness; in that, He was the divine, perfect sacrifice, without any flaws or blemishes, and therefore, was, is and forever shall be, the only One completely capable of fulfilling the righteous requirements of Papa God’s righteous law.

We, on our own, could not ever earn, deserve, find, or ever even remotely have the wherewithal or ability to pay our own way, in order to gain entrance into the Kingdom of The Most High, and then, also have a right and honorable relationship with Papa God! It’s only possible through The One, who suffered and died, once and for all, at a specific time, in the whole history of humankind, upon a cruel cross, for the sins of everyone!

And, although He, The One, suffered and died a horrible, demeaning and abjectly degrading death, to pay for the sins of the many, His sacrificial and most efficacious death, has made a way, where there was no way, for each one of us, of humankind, to be brought safely back, to the place of our real home, which is, to live and dwell in the very presence of The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s eternal abode.

All this has been made possible, because the One who suffered and died, was brought back to life, through the power of The Holy Spirit, and that same Spirit, that gave Jesus Christ resurrection life, now gives us new life; as He now lives within the within of the innermost part of each and everyone who has experienced resurrection life through Jesus Christ, The One, and by the enlivening of The Holy Spirit!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/14- “Be Bold, Be Strong—Unafraid And Unashamed!” (Romans 1:16)

Posted 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: 09/14- “Be Bold, Be Strong—Unafraid And Unashamed!” (Romans 1:16)

Premise Question: Why would anyone, who has already experienced, and is actually in the know, ever succumb to being afraid or ashamed of sharing openly, with those who are in desperate need, the very thing—The Good News of Jesus Christ, that will truly deliver and set them completely free; giving and granting them an everlasting life, full of love, joy and peace forevermore?

“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I am more than eager and well prepared to share, with anyone and everyone, at anytime and everywhere, without any hesitation, reservation or restraint, holding nothing back in reserve, but with an openness and boldness, being ever ready to declare, for all to see, hear and know, of my undying devotion and allegiance to The Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is absolutely the most excellent and incredible Good News, (the best ever in the history of the world) given to humankind; whereby, anyone and everyone, no matter what nation or station in life one hails from, all those who will embrace The Good News, by placing their complete trust and reliance in The LORD Jesus Christ and the incomparable, unsurpassed power of Papa God, which brings freedom, deliverance and salvation to everyone, shall be set free for all eternity. First, to those He first appeared to, the Jews, and then, to every other nation and people group in the whole world. (Romans 1:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Perhaps, some of us are afraid and ashamed, at times, and are therefore, then prone to be subject to, and succumb to, the lies and pressures of the influences that surround us. Such as: family or peer pressure, the culture, social mores, what may be accepted as popular or unpopular, couth or uncouth, cool or uncool, or even because we may be fearful of being embarrassed, ridiculed, shamed, persecuted, or that we may in some way suffer harm, for our faith, beliefs, practices, standards and way of life. Whatever the case, we do not really have any valid reason to ever be subject to nor succumb to, being afraid or ashamed! For as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly says, as well as, strongly encourages us to accept and believe: “If Papa God Is for us, (and He absolutely most assuredly is) then who could ever be against us!” No one and nothing!

Therefore, because we are inspired and filled with the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit, within the within of our innermost being, we should, can and ought to become strong and bold, courageous and fearless, in sharing the Good News of The LORD Jesus Christ—who is the only One who can release, deliver and set humankind free; from the power of sin and the influence of darkness and the evil one!

And remember, Papa God has commissioned us, The Company of The Redeemed, with this great and vital divine mission, of sharing the Good News with those that are lost; whose deliverance and salvation is actually depending on us being bold and strong, unafraid and unashamed! Blessings…

“ABOVE ALL ELSE!” (Proverbs 4:23) repost from a year ago today…

Posted on Updated on

“ABOVE ALL ELSE!” (Proverbs 4:23)

It was forty years ago today that I was joined in holy matrimony to Cynthia Lynn Hill…We were blissfully, blisteringly, blusteringly and very much bless-fully enjoined together for twenty-eight years. Many good and great things came of and about, as a direct result of our union, but the greatest and certainly the most satisfying and endearing, has to be the three children, Robert Lyn, aka. Boomer, then later on, just Rob Bob, (he didn’t much prefer Boomer, probably because it was also the name of our boxer) Austin Lee, aka. Bubba, (which he said we could call him his whole life, if you are family or really close to him) Noele Helene, aka. Missy Muffy Lou, (and too many other nicknames to list, all quite cute and endearing) The seven grandchildren, so far, Jordan, aka. Lil Bub; Tyler, aka Ty-Bo-Bub; Dylan, aka. Final Bub, (NOT); Cannyon, aka. doesn’t need a nickname, as her real name is too cool; Eli, aka. Bubba Don, (resembles his papa Don); Banning, aka. Bubbies, (just one of numerous nicknames); and finally, Emily Grace, who also has many nicknames, but I call her Lady Bub! I am blessed beyond measure!

As I remember this day, the one thing that comes to my mind, in the form of a question, as being most important, over and above everything else is: Are you guarding your heart, and what is the present condition of your heart? I ask myself this question, quite often, and I ask it of everyone now, whether you be in my immediate family, extended family, friends, neighbors, associates and everyone else. The last thing Cynthia said to me and asked me, before she went to be with The LORD, was: “I know that my heart is completely free of all angst, worry, bitterness, resentment, for I have released and forgiven all hurts, insults and wounds, and I am now ready to meet The LORD!” And then she asked me if we were good and if I my heart was free? Thank The LORD, my heart is completely free, because of His mercy, grace and loving kindness.

Remember, and please take this to heart:
“There isn’t anything more important, in this life, than to make sure that your heart is free of all debris; because, everything else, in your life, is always going to be affected by the condition of your heart!” (Proverbs 4:23 PDCP)

“Above all else, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed!” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/13- “Our Salvation And Ultimate Victory, Comes From The LORD GOD Almighty!” (Isaiah 12:2-3)

Posted 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: 09/13- “Our Salvation And Ultimate Victory, Comes From The LORD GOD Almighty!” (Isaiah 12:2-3)

Premise Question: Why are we able to drink our fill, even to overflowing and to our hearts delight, from the fountain of everlasting life?

“See, God has come to save me. I will trust in him and not be afraid. The LORD GOD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.” With joy you will drink deeply from the fountain of salvation!” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭12:2-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

It is without any doubt, that I confidently declare, without hesitation, intrepidness or reservation, and with full assurance and certainty, that The LORD GOD Almighty is my deliverer and my salvation! I will completely rely on His integrity, ability, strength and His supernal righteous character. Therefore, I will never give into fear, by being afraid of anything or anyone. For The Sovereign LORD, The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, gives me the capacity and efficacious ability, to face and endure any trial, trouble, tribulation or turmoil, that I may encounter, and, He surrounds me with His shield of protection and favor. So, it’s without equivocation that I reiterate, The LORD GOD Almighty is my salvation, for He has rescued and delivered me, giving me the ultimate victory over death, hell and the grave, and has thereby, granted me the wonderful privilege of celebrating, with exuberant rejoicing, by drinking to my fill, even to overflowing, from the fountain of everlasting life, which is, the ultimate victors championship cup of salvation!” (Isaiah 12:2-3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is only because of Papa God’s great unfailing love that He has for and has proven, as well as, clearly shown, for His beloved and most cherished and unique part of His creation—humankind, that was created in His image, by sending His only begotten Son—Jesus Christ, to rescue and redeem humankind from certain destruction and eternal damnation, that we are now able to drink deeply from the fountain of life, which quenches completely and satisfies fully, our insatiable hunger and thirst for a real authentic life. A life that is full of love, mercy, grace, comfort, provision and kindness.

The legend of what the great Spanish explorer Ponce de León was remembered for, (searching for the fountain of youth) is actually found only in Papa God’s provision of the true fountain of life, the real cup of salvation, which is His only Son, who is our LORD and Redeeming Savior—Jesus Christ!

Stay thirsty, my friends, drink deeply, my dearly beloved brothers and sisters! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/12- “We Harvest, According To What We’ve Planted!” (Galatians 6:8)

Posted 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: 09/12- “We Harvest, According To What We’ve Planted!” (Galatians 6:8)

Premise Question: Does, or in fact can, the sinful nature, which seeks only to please, satisfy and quench the thirsting and hungering of one’s own fleshly desires, ever produce life, or anything that’s good, right or holy; or will it always have the same result of perpetually producing only death?

“Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.” (‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Whoever chooses to follow the path of self-gratification, by always satisfying the sensual desires of their sinful nature, to the exclusion of everything else, sets into motion the law of destruction in their life, which will wreak havoc, loss, devastation and decay, resulting in being damaged beyond human repair. But, whoever diligently chooses to follow the path of delighting one’s self in The LORD, by always desiring to do His will, thereby, becomes pleasing and satisfying to The Spirit of God, and shall thus, from The Spirit, reap a harvest of righteous living and ultimately eternal life; for whatever presence you choose to practice, will surely bear fruit of its own kind, in your life, because you’ll always only harvest (get back accordingly) to what you’ve planted. (Galatians 6:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: This Scripture is really a perfect example of “the law of reciprocity,” which is, the law of sowing and reaping; as in, whatever kind of seeds someone plants, in their life, they can most assuredly expect to receive a return, back into their life, of a harvest, according to the kind of seeds that they’ve planted!

Just as apple seeds will not produce orange trees and tomato seeds will not produce cucumber vines, so too, anything that comes, as a result of the sinful nature being satisfied and fulfilled, will only produce after its kind, and therefore, can not and will not, as it doesn’t have the capacity to do so, produce anything good, but will always result in producing decay and death.

Conversely, though, when one decides to live their life, by deliberately pleasing the Spirit, (Papa God) the resounding and most definite result will always be one of producing goodness, and a life that is thriving, flourishing and which, will result in producing a bountiful, satisfying and fulfilling, glorious harvest of righteousness.

So, we can choose to satisfy and fulfill the desires of our sinful nature, with its resulting consequences of producing a decaying death, or we can, with the efficacious help of The LORD, choose to live our lives, in such a way, that truly pleases The Spirit, with the wonderful and truly satisfying and fulfilling result, and blessed consequence, of producing an abundant and joyful life.

Remember, whatever presence we choose to practice, and the kind of seeds we plant in life, will produce fruit, a harvest, after its own kind! Blessings…
