SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/23- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On’! —But Do ‘Put On’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)

Premise Question: Did Papa God choose us because we are a righteous, holy and pure people, or did He choose us because He loves us and desires that we become a righteous, holy and pure people; with His divine help and through His gracious provision of His Son—our redeeming LORD and Savior— Jesus Christ?

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Therefore, since you’ve been divinely selected, because of The LORD GOD Almighty being favorably inclined towards you, to be one of His very own devout and cherished family members, of The Company of The Redeemed, you must make sure you are always clad appropriately, with these vitally important attributes, wearing them at all times, for all to see and personally experience. Now, regarding all of these attributes, don’t just be a “put on,” but actually put them on! Put on compassion, being moved to action, with sympathy, becoming empathetic towards others plight, by doing something that will really offer them the help needed, in order to alleviate their condition. Put on kindness, exhibiting kind benevolent favor, that’s thoughtful, helpful and cordial. Put on humility, not elevating yourself, by thinking you are superior or above others. Put on gentleness, always displaying a meek, mild and calm disposition and manner towards others. And finally, put on patience, by showing great restraint and self-control, choosing to learn and train yourself not to be reactionary, but responsive. Not hot headed, but even tempered, persistent, long suffering, and that, without any grumbling or complaint. (Colossians 3:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh what joy and pure delight, with an absolute certitude and a wholehearted gratitude, that’s full of exuberant rejoicing and thoughtful thanksgiving, being lifted up continually unto Papa God, His Son and The Holy Spirit, who is The King Eternal, The LORD of all, The One True and Faithful Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is The Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, and is The One who comforts, heals and restores, forgives and renews, and The One who chooses and loves, and gives us an abundant new life, and that, forevermore.

He is The One who, with His divine enabling, asks us to clothe ourselves, each and everyday, with His divine, yet quite practical, as well as, being extremely beneficial, attributes of The LORD.

He greatly desires that we be very tenderhearted, showing mercy and compassion, with great affection and benevolence, towards others. Papa God wants us to be kind to one another and others, being gracious, showing favor and generosity towards others.

It is of the utmost importance that we clothe ourselves in humility, walking and comporting ourselves in lowliness and exhibiting meekness towards others.

Our attitude and approach towards others, should always be characterized as being gentle, amiable and with much caring and real concern.

And finally, we must exhibit the divine and unique quality of being patient, having a huge reservoir, full to overflowing, of patience, calmness, steady composure, long suffering and forbearance.

So, don’t be a “Put On,” but, “Put On” all these attributes of The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/22- “Listen And Live—Accept And Win!” (Proverbs 19:20-21)

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: 09/22- “Listen And Live—Accept And Win!” (Proverbs 19:20-21)

Premise Question: Have you ever heard or thought of something as absurd as; there is such a thing as receiving too much divine wisdom, counsel and instruction during one’s life?

“Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Pay close attention, giving it your highest priority, with resolute regard, to the wise counsel and admonitions of The LORD. Willingly accept and endure, agreeing and complying completely, with His purifying chastening of you, as He administers His correction to perfection, with divine instruction; so that, when the final curtain falls, at the cessation of time, you shall be included in the number of those who are known to be a part of the insightful, discerning and wise. There are a wealth, a veritable cornucopia, of dreams, desires, schemes, with deliberate and thoughtful plans, in the heart of every individual child, woman or man; but it is always going to be The LORD GOD Almighty’s intentional, divine ideal purpose and aim, that will triumph, conquer and ultimately win. (Proverbs 19:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The premise may be out there somewhere in the world, that one can be too wise or over qualified and trained, or even so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good! But it has little value, carries even less weight and lacks any real credibility or evidence, to actually be true. There really is no such thing as being someone being so heavenly minded, that they are no earthly good!

Being completely or even over prepared is not ever going to be a hindrance or weakness. But, being ill prepared, on the other hand, is short sighted, ill advised and is definitely a liability that can be extremely detrimental.

Was Jesus so heavenly minded that He was no earthly good? I think and definitely know that not to be the case! For the Scriptures say that we are to have the mind of Christ! Therefore, we should always continue to strive to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of The LORD.

It is requisite for each of us to pursue The LORD’s perfect wisdom, by continually giving ourselves over to being instructed and trained in righteousness, with Papa God’s Word as our textbook and foundation and the Holy Spirit as our spiritual teacher, counselor, mentor and guide, in this life.

For it is then and only then, that Papa God’s divine will, plan and purpose for our lives will ultimately prevail, with us being the wonderfully blessed beneficiaries and hugely big winners!

Remember, we are never too old, too wise or too learned, to continue to be able to learn and grow! Listen And Live—Accept And Win! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

1 DAY LATE 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: 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Premise Question: The conspicuously obvious question to ask is: Why would and does Papa God take great delight in you with extravagant expressions of mirth and gladness, and sing songs of exultation and joy over you?

“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The LORD GOD Almighty—your Papa God, is mighty in battle; for there is none that can stand against Him. He has no peers, as a Mighty Warrior, for He is the overwhelming Victor in every skirmish, fight or combat encounter. He is ever present, close by your side, at all times, on every occasion, in support of you; no matter the situation or circumstance, every moment of every hour of each and every day of your life’s sojourn. He is always there to bring release, to save and rescue, and then ultimately to take great delight in redeeming you, as His very own. It is because of His great unfailing love for you, He will never again mention or bring to His remembrance, by reminding you of your past and the times or occasions where you faltered, failed and flopped. On the contrary, He will celebrate and rejoice, with jubilant festive songs of exultation, by singing Heavenly Melodies of joy and elation over you. (Zephaniah 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s unfailing and absolutely immeasurable love that He has for us, His unique, made in His own image creation, is truly way beyond our perception, comprehension or understanding. But, we can accept the truth of His infallible Word, that He has chosen to live and reside amongst us, as our Mighty Warrior, Comforting Counselor and Redeeming Savior!

We can also accept that He is a lavishing loving and delightfully doting Papa God, who takes an extremely high degree of pleasure and enjoyment in singing songs of exultation and joy over us; making us glad, filling us with cheer and joy, calming all of our tortuous thoughts and worrisome fears, relieving us of apprehension and angst, dread and distress and causing us to fully experience a serene rest and tranquil peace.

Why would and does He do this? Because of His great love for His very own chosen children, of which we, The Company of The Redeemed, are most assuredly are! Blessings…

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

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: 09/20- “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)

2 DAYS 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: 09/19- “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…
