SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/13- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!”
(2 Corinthians 12:9)

Premise Question: How often and when does The LORD GOD Almighty make us, His precious and beloved children, strong?

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭NLT‬)

But the magnificent and most merciful LORD GOD Almighty set me straight, with this greatly encouraging admonition: “My ever faithful, loving kindness is all that you will ever need, it will always suffice, for My efficacious ability to accomplish and fulfill My divine design, will and purpose for your life, becomes ideal and absolutely impeccable, when in your frailty, inadequacies, infirmities and afflictions, you choose to completely rely upon Me!” Now that, is the reason why I’m more than happy and joyful to speak, with excessive pride, in an exaggerated manner and grandiose fashion, about my inglorious inadequacies, frail infirmities and noisome afflictions; knowing full well that The LORD GOD Almighty Himself is empowering me to do all that He desires, fulfilling and accomplishing in me and through me, His divine design, purpose and will for my life and ultimately, all for His Glory. (2 Corinthians 12:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: He does it always through His sufficient grace and by His power. For He, The LORD GOD Almighty, will always make us strong, in our weaknesses, as we choose to rely upon His strength and not our own.

Sometimes though, our own strengths can become our weaknesses, when we choose to rely on them, rather than relying upon The LORD’s strength and His all sufficient grace. But, even still, in our own strength/weaknesses, when yielded to Him, He will make us strong! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/02- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

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: 12/02- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

Premise Question: How did you become a legitimate member of The Company of The Redeemed, who are you, as a member of the Company of The Redeemed, and what are you to be doing, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed?

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For it is only because of Papa God’s unmerited favor, kindness and great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming an accepted and recognized member, in right standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, through your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, when you placed your complete trust and reliance on Him. And even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your good behavior, actions or deeds, for there’s not any sort of effort, work accomplishment or achievement, that you can do or attempt to do, that will ever suffice; as it is indeed, solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of Papa God Himself and His Son. He’s done it in this way, so that there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement to be claimed by anyone; for there’s no boasting allowed, except in The LORD and what He has done. For we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are the unique and perfectly designed masterpiece, created by the hands of the Master Himself, our Papa God Almighty in Heaven, brought forth out of darkness and renewed by His Son—Jesus Christ, for the purpose of doing His divine works of righteousness; that Papa God had in His mind, already prepared in waiting, for each of us to do, long before we were even members of The Company of The Redeemed. (Ephesians 2:8-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: You are saved by grace, through your faith, but not on your own, for it is a gift that comes only from Papa God—The Heavenly Father; which can’t be earned or bought, but should be sought, so that you’ll be caught, to then be taught, in order, to do and accomplish, with The LORD’s help, the divine work, will and purpose, that’s been prepared and is ready in waiting, for you to begin to do. So, without delay, let’s get busy, and begin, with great diligence and devotion get to work! Blessings…

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

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.

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- 09/02- “We Find Refreshing Rest In Him!” (Psalms 46:10)

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: 09/02- “We Find Refreshing Rest In Him!” (Psalms 46:10)

Premise Question: What does it truly mean, for the people of Papa God, to be still and know, that He is The Great I Am—The Most High, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty?

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”‭‭ (Psalms‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Be strengthened, encouraged and uplifted, with full assurance, by the reality of who it is that says, “Cease and desist from all your laborious activity and worrisome thoughts. Pause and reflect, resting in My tranquil serenity and peaceful presence. Comprehend and then, apprehend, by possessing fully, this wonderful knowledge, that, I Am The LORD GOD Almighty. Therefore, because I Am The LORD GOD Almighty, I will be lifted up to the highest place of praise and honor, in the midst of every tribe, tongue, kindred and creed. I will be extolled and worshiped, by all the nations that inhabit and live in the earth, which I love and created with My spoken Word.” (Psalms 46:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: To be still and know that Papa God is The Great I Am, is to fully accept and recognize Him as The LORD of Heaven’s Armies; the One who is our refuge and strength, and is ever ready, at a moments notice, to bring protection, deliverance, joy, healing and help, for His own.

So, there is never a reason or instance to fear or be frightened; no matter what may be going on in our life, the life of the nation or even the world.

Who He is and what He wants to be to each of us, as well as, do for every beloved individual person in His creation, is to have a personal and intimate relationship, with each person, setting them free, by releasing them from captivity and the bondage of sin; so that, we can truly worship, honor and praise Him in Spirit and in Truth.

So, when we are still, and really know Papa God, we have accepted, as factual and true, who Papa God truly is; and therefore, will remain calm, cool and collected, even in the midst of a terrible storm, outrageous chaos and great turmoil! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/19- “Don’t Be A Mocker!” (Proverbs 3:34)

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: 08/19- “Don’t Be A Mocker!” (Proverbs 3:34)

Premise Question: Given the resulting absolutely abject, being completely abhorrent and utterly repugnant response that is engendered, from The LORD, when one chooses to practice the behavior of a mocker; just why would anyone ever fain to practice such disdainfully deplorable behavior?

“The LORD mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is indignantly displeased, having contemptible ridicule, being utterly dismissive and derisively scornful towards those who are full of conceit, and who proudly display a high opinion of themselves, exhibiting an air of superiority, while showing disdain towards others, by disrespecting them in their speech, attitudes and behavior. But He, The LORD GOD Almighty, openly demonstrates and proves His love, by preferring and showing His undeserved goodwill and pleasure to those who are not arrogant, but are modest, respectful, meek and lowly in their approach, attitude, and behavior. And furthermore, He is also inclined, because of His great compassion, towards those who are weighted down with onerous burdens, distressing grief, mental anguish, pernicious pain and unrelenting persecution. (Proverbs 3:34 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I truly believe, that one of our greatest enemies to seeing and coming to grips with the actual truth about ourselves, lies deep within us, and perhaps it is so well hidden that it’s come to the point of us being unaware that we are even unaware of it!

Oh what blindness occurs in us when our vision becomes completely impaired by our own pride, self-deception, delusions of grandeur, our own sense of self-importance, the celebration of our own accomplishments, achievements and accolades.

Our hubris, insolence, conceit and arrogance, as well as, our feelings of insecurity and being unsure of ourselves, will cause us to become a person who mocks, ridicules, insults and derides others, as well as, perhaps what we may not understand, and therefore, will continue to keep us in the dark, with our eyes closed, entirely resistant to any reasonable confrontation with actual facts.

Our only way out of this pride maelstrom of insanity, that we may be in and are experiencing, with the dire result of our ultimate and total destruction; is through the humility and contriteness of our heart and soul!

Therefore, we must choose to humble ourselves under Papa God’s mighty hand, as He will always resist and reject the proud, but will always give gracious favor to the humble, those who are poor in spirit, as He is ever continually drawn to them.

For it is only with true humility and contriteness, that we will regain our sight and sanity in every part of our lives; spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically, and then, we will fully experience the joys, benefits and blessings of The LORD’S gracious favor in our lives! Otherwise, we experience the abject and utter mocking of The LORD in our daily lives.

Humility or Humiliation, there are only two options available to each of us, and we make the choice! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/31- “Our Redeemer, Teacher, Guide!” (Isaiah 48:17)

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: 05/31- “Our Redeemer, Teacher, Guide!” (Isaiah 48:17)

Premise Question: Why is it so vital and critically important for us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, to recognize, accept, and then, to listen carefully and follow closely to what The Redeemer, The Holy, Anointed and Chosen One of Papa God is telling us?

This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭48‬:‭17‬ NLT)

Stop whatever you’re doing right now, put aside everything and everyone else, and pay close attention, listen to the message that The LORD GOD Almighty, who is your Redeemer, your Deliverer, the Holy Anointed and Chosen One, who has obtained your release from captivity, set you free and removed the penalty of sin; which is eternal death and separation from His presence, hear what He says: “I AM The LORD Your God, there is no other! I AM The One who imparts wisdom, knowledge and insight, in order to instruct, teach and train you in the ways that will bring the greatest of benefits into your life. I AM The One who leads, guides, directs and watches over you, as you journey upon the path and the way I’ve chosen for you, and that you should choose to travel on, while here, in this world.” (Isaiah 48:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is of the utmost importance for us to recognize and accept who The Redeemer of humankind is, and that He is The One and Only Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty of all and over all; for it is for our own good that we do so, as it meets and satisfies our most urgent and greatest personal need, and also blesses us with the best and absolutely incredibly most wonderful benefits, if we’ll do so!

Therefore, it is a tantamount and tremendously significant thing for us to carefully listen to all that The Great I Am is telling us, and then, to immediately pursue and follow Him upon the pathway and route that He desires and has purposefully designed and established for us to travel and traverse upon, in this life.

We are to do this, with everything that we are and all that we’ve got. For it is upon this path that He imparts to us life-giving instruction and the absolutely necessary correction needed, while diligently and faithfully leading and guiding us into all truth and into the right direction and upon the right path, of our sojourn in this life; which, in the end and scope of all things, is the most honorable, commendable, being completely acceptable and pleasing thing to Him, and will thus, fulfill His divine purpose for our lives.

Remember this great encouraging truth from Papa God’s Word: His word is a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭105‬ NLT) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/26/15- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/26/15- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

Premise Question: What is it time to do and who do we tell?

“The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭NLT‬)

The shepherds, being so overwhelmed with rapturous joy and excitement, after not only hearing, with their own ears, the wonderful Good News, but then, having what they had just heard actually confirmed, with the incredible experience of seeing it, with their own eyes, exactly, as it had been described to them, by the angel of The LORD, even down to the smallest detail; all of this was much more than they could ever try to contain within themselves, so, upon the return to their sheep, everyone they saw along the way, they weren’t able to be reserved or hold back from glorifying and praising The LORD GOD Almighty and telling them all of the magnificently wondrous, miraculous miracle of glad tidings of great joy, the Good News, for all of humankind, that they had just personally witnessed. (Luke 2:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Have you ever been too excited to sleep or eat or unable to sit or stand still for even a moment, because of the overwhelming anticipation and expectation of joy building up inside you and that you are experiencing due to having some insight and incredible knowledge of something really good that’s either about to happen or has already happened? What you know and what you are feeling is too wonderful to keep to yourself! You can’t hold or contain it within yourself, you’ve just got to tell someone, call someone, see someone, show someone, or everyone about the Good News of what has happened or is about to happen. It may be causing you to break out in dance, burst out laughing or to begin to sing uncontrollably, with rapturous joy, for you just can’t keep it inside yourself, as you are unable to contain or control it, you just can’t help it; you’re absolutely going to tell somebody, probably everybody you come in contact with or have opportunity to tell. Perhaps, that’s what was going on with the shepherds, with regards to the news they had just received, seen and heard. We too, have experienced and been given the same Good News! So, let us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, do the same as the shepherds were compelled and overwhelmed with joy to do! It’s time to let the jubilant and rapturous celebration of great rejoicing ensue and to “start spreading the news,” by beginning to tell everyone everywhere about The Good News for all of humankind! Blessings…
