SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/20- “A Walk With The Wise” (Proverbs 13:20)

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: 11/20- “A Walk With The Wise!” (Proverbs 13:20)

Premise Question: Why should we choose to walk and spend time with those who are wise?

“Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭13:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Everyone has been given time, as capital, to spend on and in their lives. It would be prudent to invest the time given, by spending it wisely with and on those who are enlightened and full of vital insights for having success in life; for when time is invested wisely, it results in returning great benefits and a fortune. Conversely though, when time is spent consorting and associating with imbecilic dolts, those who lack good judgment or sense, it’s a very poor investment, completely wasted and will have diminished returns, resulting in a life that languishes, characterized by, experiencing incredible abuse and irreparable damage, being ground down into failure and misfortune.
(Proverbs 13:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why is it so vitally important how we choose to spend our most valuable commodity—time? Because if we won’t or don’t spend it wisely, we will surely suffer severely and really smart for it! For when we invest our most precious commodity—time, poorly and unwisely, we won’t ever become smart or achieve any modicum of success, if we continue to unwisely choose to invest and spend our time on things that lack wisdom and sense, by wasting our time on and with the unwise!

A strong, but wonderful word to the wise and to everyone else: Walk with the wise, embrace wisdom and as a direct result, become very wise; associate with fools and malcontents and get into lots and lots of trouble, while experiencing way too much unnecessary drama, terrible turmoil and can only lead to and produce a life of misery, poverty and a extremely dreadful and dreary existence! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP-11/19- “Real Delight And True Desires” (Psalm 37:4)

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: 11/19- “Real Delight And True Desires!” (Psalm 37:4)

Premise Question: How does one take real delight in The LORD?

“Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.”
(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭37:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Be filled with rapturous joy and gleeful delight, as you enter into, being fully engaged in, the presence of The LORD, and He, The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, shall lavishly endow and bestow upon you, by fulfilling your deepest longings and cravings, that, with assured certitude, shall bring you great satisfaction and enjoyment, with perfect peace, to the innermost and deepest part of your unique disposition and inclination, at the very center of who you are and were created to be. (Psalm 37:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When one truly takes delight in The LORD, they will spend copious amounts of time with Him, in His word, in prayer, communing, meditating, listening, learning, honoring, praising and worshiping Papa God, with their whole heart; thus, developing a close and intimate relationship with Him. Then, as a direct result, The LORD will grant to them the true desires of their heart; the ones planted deep within them, by Papa God Himself, even before they were born into this world, in order to fulfill The LORD’s true desire, purpose and divine will for their lives. And this would bring great delight to His heart!

We all should smile more, pray more and spend more intimate time in the presence of The LORD. For when we spend more intimate time with The LORD in His presence, our prayers end up being more in line with what He wants, and definitely more powerful, and thereby, more effective, and then, we surely will, as a wonderful result, be smiling more, with real delight, as we will have so much more to smile about! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/18- “HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN MY HEART!” (Psalm 119:11)

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: 11/18- “Hidden Deep Within My Heart!” (Psalm 119:11)

Premise Question: What’s the purpose of hiding, by memorizing, internalizing and personalizing, Papa God’s life-giving and all sustaining word, deep within our innermost being—our heart?

“I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:11‬ ‭NLT‬)

Your Word, O LORD, is The Wellspring of all life; the true source of all that is righteous, holy and pure. Therefore, I continually commit Your Word to the very depths of my thoughts and inmost being, within the within, so that, the spring flowing up and out of my own heart, in my life, will stay pure and refreshing; thereby, keeping me from dishonoring or committing transgressions against You and Your Holy Word. (Psalm 119:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The absolutely vital purpose of memorizing, internalizing and personalizing Papa God’s Word, within the within, of our innermost being, is so that we will have the wherewithal, the strength, the courage and full assurance, of The LORD, to keep the spring in our lives pure and undefiled, and will thus, be able to withstand any attack or onslaught, that we might encounter, from the enemy of our souls! Then, come what may, no matter what happens, we can and will be able to stand firm, as nothing, that ever happens or occurs, will overwhelm, overcome or move us. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/17- “Humankind’s Main Mission In Life!” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

Premise Question: What is the basic duty and grand commission for all of humankind?

“That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.” (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭12:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Okay, so now that all the evidence is in, and we’ve covered everything that needs and should be paid close attention too, here’s the bottom line, the end of it all, concerning what is most important to consider, address, to be fully aware of and to deliberately follow, with absolute diligence in life: Choose to always honor The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, with the greatest of respect, holy reverential awe and veneration, and in conjunction with, devoting yourself to observing, obeying and relying upon His wonderful commandments to be the ultimate guide and influence in your life. For this truly is the expectation, the obligation and honorable service that is required of the whole of humankind. (Ecclesiastes 12:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Always honor, respect and revere The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty in and with your life; devoting yourself, with great diligence, to complying with, by deliberately following closely, adhering to, and keeping His commands, for this is the divine duty and grand commission of all of humankind.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/16- “More Than We Could Ever Imagine!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

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: 11/16- “More Than We Could Ever Imagine!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Premise Question: Do we, as believing members of The Company of The Redeemed, ever put Papa God in a box, by limiting Him to what we can only imagine He could or would ever do, or what we think is plausible, possible or realistically, actually in the realm of reality?

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” (‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

It is at this present time and following, for all time, that we recognize and are keenly aware of who He, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty is and what He is capable of. For He is more than qualified, as well as, being completely proficient in accomplishing way beyond anything we could ever picture, perceive or hope for, or even desire to happen in our lives. He does all this through His inexhaustible power that is also incomparable, and that is presently, even at this very moment, operating with great efficiency and effectiveness deep inside of each one of us, within the within of our inmost being. Therefore, it is for this reason that all praise, all honor and all glory, within The Church—The Company of The Redeemed, and in His Son—Jesus Christ, shall, throughout every generation past, present and every generation that follows, be His, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s, for ever and ever, without end! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Simply put: Don’t ever limit Papa God, in what He may want to do in your life or the life of another. And, always make room for Him, by giving Him all the space He desires and requires to operate, in order to fulfill and accomplish His divine will, purpose and plan, in and for your life.

And finally, always remember, don’t ever neglect or forget, but believe and accept this wonderful, undeniable and established truth, that with Papa God, there isn’t anything that’s beyond the realm of possibility, to all those that choose to believe! (Mark 9:23) And, there isn’t an eye that has seen, or an ear that has heard, nor even a mind that could ever even begin to imagine, all that Papa God has in store for those that truly love Him! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/15- “Building Holy Faith—Praying In The Holy Spirit!” (Jude 1:20-21)

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: 11/15- “Building Holy Faith—Praying In The Holy Spirit!” (Jude 1:20-21)

Premise Question: Do we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, make it our common practice to build ourselves up in our most holy faith and are we faithfully praying in the Holy Spirit?

“But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.” (‭‭Jude‬ ‭1:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

But you, my dear friends, members all, of The Great Company of The Redeemed, and who do have complete access to the comfort, power and presence of The Holy Spirit, as He, The Spirit of Christ now dwells, residing deep within the within of your innermost being, don’t ever stop growing, developing and maturing in your sacred and most precious walk of faith. Therefore, don’t become lackadaisical or accept the status quo of mediocrity, but continue to faithfully utilize fully the power of The Holy Spirit, by making it your daily practice to rely upon, and to pray in, The Holy Spirit. Keep on practicing the presence of The LORD—loving and walking humbly before Him, loving and walking in release before all others, as you wait, with a patient calm assurance, for the all consuming, rescuing and redeeming, protective covering of the loving and merciful grace of our LORD and Savior—Jesus Christ, to transform, then transport you to your eternal abode; to forever be in the very presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. And that, without end! (Jude 1:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, must stay ever vigilant, with a deliberate diligence, to not ever become lackadaisical and then, as a direct result, slip into mediocrity, where our most holy faith stops growing and developing, and our practice of praying in the Holy Spirit wanes, to the point of no longer building ourselves up in spiritual maturity, but actually begins to diminish, atrophy and die. Don’t ever succumb to being just mediocre!

A very wise young man once said to me in a staff meeting: “Once you’ve licked the lollipop of mediocrity, you suck the rest of your life!”

Thanks, my son, Rob Cox. Something I’ll never forget and constantly remind myself of, as I daily give thanks, while awaiting the mercy of The LORD Jesus Christ, who will bring me eternal life, I will build myself and others up, on our most holy faith, by praying in The Holy Spirit, and thus, stay safe and secure, in the loving arms and care of Papa God’s unfailing love. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/14- “Papa God’s Plans For You!”(Jeremiah 29:11)

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: 11/14- “Papa God’s Plans For You!”(Jeremiah 29:11)

Premise Question: As a believer, just how excited, encouraged, enthralled, enlivened and even emboldened, can and should one be, with such a wonderfully comforting, and completely assuring, prognostication?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
(‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For I, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am not in the dark, ill prepared nor unaware, when it comes to knowing what My future plans entail for your life. Therefore, I, The LORD, emphatically affirm and declare, making it a certainty, with this pronouncement, that my blueprint for your life will be carried out to fruition; which is, to assure your success in seeing that you flourish in the place that I’ve planted you, and that, without suffering loss or injury. Furthermore, My blueprint for you shall bring an expectant hope, that will not fail or disappoint you, but shall, with confidence and full assurance, restore unto you a bright future, filled with many wonderful prospects and satisfying rewards. (Jeremiah 29:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Now, before someone gets their dander up, about personalizing the principles and promises of this scripture, spoken to a specific people for a specific time, there are plenty of other examples in scripture which clearly delineate Papa God’s wonderfully gracious and glorious plans for His children’s future.

So, how excited should and can we be? Extremely exhilarated, with an exaggerated, exuberant explosion, of joyful expressions of praise, worship and thanksgiving! F.U.T.U.R.E.- Finally Understand That U R Eternal! Accept it! Rejoice in it! Share it with others!

Upon further review, check these scrips out…(Hebrews 2:5, Romans 8:17,18,19,23, Ephesians 4:4) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/13- “The Infuriation Of Temptation!” (James 1:13-14)

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: 11/13- “The Infuriation Of Temptation!” (James 1:13-14)

Premise Question: Where do we assign blame, when we succumb and give into temptation; and, are we ever tempted, given an opportunity to do good, and, if we don’t do it, is that a sin?

“And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away.”
(‭‭James‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When, not if, for everyone will encounter temptation, having occasions, whereby, they will have the opportunity to either surrender and submit to The LORD GOD or surrender and succumb to the carnal desires of their flesh. Therefore, when temptation ensues, no one should ever attribute it, by laying or assigning blame to anyone or anything other than themselves, and especially do not ever say, “it is The LORD GOD that has brought this temptation to me!” For The LORD GOD is completely impervious too, and doesn’t even have the capacity to be induced or in any way influenced by carnality and evilness, nor does He or would He ever attempt to put any wicked stumbling blocks in the path of someone, with the expressed purpose of causing them to yield and succumb to temptation; because each individual person is prone to be carried away by their own proclivities and propensities, being allured into captivity and bondage by their own evilness and sinful desires. (James 1:13-14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Perhaps, when we are tempted by something, it gives us an indicative signal of an area in our walk that we may need to spiritually mature and grow up in.

Thank The LORD GOD Almighty that He helps us in our weaknesses when we cry out to Him for assistance! And, even when we do succumb, when tempted, He is faithful to restore us, when we humbly confess and make ourselves accountable to Him and others.

The issue of deflecting and assigning blame to another, other than ourselves, goes all the back, to the Garden of Eden, where we find Eve deflecting blame upon the enticement of the Serpent and Adam following suit, by deflecting and assigning blame to Papa God and Eve, the woman that God gave him as a helpmate!

As Adam and Eve were prone to deflect and assign blame, so too, are we still today, it is therefore, obviously, an inherited humankind trait.

No matter what the allurement, inducement, provocation, snare or tantalizing trap, we should not ever deflect or assign blame to Papa God, or anyone else, save ourselves. For neither Papa God nor the Devil are the one’s who made us do it!

And, remember, if ever tempted, given an opportunity to do good, just do it and be mightily blest! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/12- “Everything Is His!” (1 Chronicles 29:11)

Premise Question: How important is it for all of Papa God’s creation to recognize His Awesome Splendor and Magnificence, and that He is high above everything and everyone, as The Exalted Supreme Sovereign over all?

“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.”
(‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The immensity and sheer magnitude of Your greatness, O LORD, belongs only to You, for their is no one like You. The capabilities and potency of Your power is infinite and unequalled, and Your magnificence, displayed in all of Your regal glory, is transcendent and majestic to behold, and Your stately splendor, in all of its grandeur and brilliance, is spectacularly resplendent, being beyond compare. For the aggregate of all things, whether in Heaven or on earth, is Yours and Yours alone. O LORD, no one else has even the slightest claim upon Your Kingdom, Your Realm and Domain. For Your dominion, reign and preeminence extends beyond Heaven and earth, for You are elevated high above everything and everyone, as The Supreme, August Ruler over all.
(1 Chronicles 29:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is of the utmost importance, being an absolute imperative, that all of creation recognize Papa God for who He is, which is The Supreme Ruler over all! And that, what He has done is unequalled, in the transcendency and magnificence of His Glorious Majesty! Amen and Amen! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/11- “Salvation Is Our Ultimate Reward!” (1 Peter 1:8-9)

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: 11/11- “Salvation Is Our Ultimate Reward!” (1 Peter 1:8-9)

Premise Question: What is our sure and certain reward, how do we qualify for it, and what kind of affect/effect does it have on us, and produce in us, now, as well as into our eternal future and beyond?

“You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.” (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Even given the fact that you’ve never actually seen The LORD Jesus Christ in person, you still love, honor and worship Him, with everything that is within you. And though you presently are not able to see Him in the flesh, your belief, trust and unshakable faith in Him causes an explosion of joy to go off inside of you, deep within the within, of the innermost part of your being, that fills you to overflowing, with His fountain of living water, His wonderful glorious presence, which there are no words that can be uttered that will even begin to adequately express what you are receiving and experiencing from The LORD. For this is what comes forth in your life, as a consequence of yielding and surrendering to Him when you’ve placed your complete trust and faith in Him; even your redemption, the eternal salvation of your entire being—spirit, soul and body. (1 Peter 1:8-9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: All glory honor and praise belongs to The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and everything therein and even beyond, and who has provided a way of escape from death, hell and the grave, deliverance from all sin, darkness, captivity and bondage, for all those who will call upon The Name of The LORD, by placing their complete trust, hope, faith and reliance in and on The Name of The LORD—Jesus Christ!

Our sure and certain reward is eternal salvation—the total and complete redemption of our spirit soul and body! We are saved…regeneration of our spirit…we are being saved…sanctification of our soul…we will be saved, glorification of our body.

We are pre-qualified for our reward, as long as we simply put our complete reliance, faith, trust and hope in Him, by calling upon His Name—Jesus Christ, confessing our sin and believing in our heart that Jesus is The LORD.

The affect/effect that this decision to trust The LORD Jesus Christ with our eternal soul, is one of total exultation, outrageous celebration, completely enjoyable, being so full of joy that it is impossible to describe with mere words; for it is so wonderfully glorious that no amount of words or any type or kind of words expressed would do it justice, as it is far beyond our capability to do so! Our decision to trust in The LORD produces in us an assurance and peace that surpasses all comprehension and understanding!

Therefore, rejoice, celebrate, take delight, for our resplendent, being more than marvelous, magnificently brilliant, redemptive salvation, our ultimate reward, is drawing nigh! Blessings…
