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

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: 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- 08/17- “In Papa God’s Perfect Time—Not Our Impatient Urgent Time!” (1 Peter 5:6)

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: 08/17- “In Papa God’s Perfect Time—Not Our Impatient Urgent Time!” (1 Peter 5:6)

Premise Question: What does authentic humility look like, involve and entail?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Do yourself a huge favor, by coming before Papa God with a humble and contrite attitude and approach, without pride or arrogance, but with gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. So in consequence of you submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in this manner, He will support and undergird you, by lifting you up and placing you in the perfect position, in order to accomplish His unique purpose and divine will for your life; of course though, you must be willing to accept and understand, that He will not do this in your own time frame, but in accordance to His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His divinely appointed time. (1 Peter 5:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Here is what I believe authentic humility looks like: Leading by example, for our actions and behavior must align with our words. We must be modest, clothed in humility, meekness, gentleness, kindness, with the obvious absence of any self-promotion, arrogance, pride, or egotism. Not given to being vengeful, spiteful or full of guile, nor insolent, indolent or impetuous, but courteous, kind, polite, obliging, showing respect and honor towards others and with a complete reverential awe towards Papa God.

This is what I believe authentic humility involves: Waiting obediently, relying, yielding, trusting fully in Papa God. Sacrificing our own wants and desires for His, with a joyful, expectant, confident and patient, hope filled faith. Always having an attitude and approach of servitude and submission to Papa God, our elders and to others. Always putting others needs before our own, by engaging in the interests, emotions, and challenges of others, by being touched and moved with compassion and genuine concern, to identify with them and then, embrace them in their plight, with the love of Papa God.

Finally, I believe authentic humility entails: Our faith in and love for Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, our redeeming LORD and Savior, which compels us to, with thanksgiving and gratitude, eagerly serve Papa God and others, as it is a necessary consequence and outgrowth of our faith and devotion to Papa God, as The Spirit of Christ now living in us propels us into action and puts a demand and requirement upon our lives that encompasses our time, talent and treasure.

Our motivation though, for becoming humble, must never be to do it because of what we may derive, or are going to get out of it, but simply, that we humble ourselves before Papa God because we are eager to serve Him and desire to please Him.

And, we must always remember, it’s not about our perception of time, but it’s all about His perfect timing, for He does all things well, in His time. So we wait patiently, full of joy and an expectant hope, upon His never early or late, but always on time, divinely appointed and established time. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/26- “The Great I AM—Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

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: 07/26- “The Great I AM—Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Premise Question: Knowing and fully accepting the premise that Papa God is completely for us, who are members in right standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, and that He is always on our side fighting all of our battles…who is it that could ever really be successful in coming or going against us—His precious and dearly beloved own children?

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” ‭‭(Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭NLT)

So, do not, under any circumstance you face, or situation you are going through, allow yourself to be overwhelmed, with distressing, worrisome, anxious thoughts, for I AM, The Great I AM, The Sovereign One True Almighty Papa God, Creator of Heaven and earth, will always be right there with you, close by your side. Do not, at any time or upon any occasion, give yourself over to being disheartened, lacking courage, wanting to just give up, but stay bold and courageous, for I AM, is your Papa God. I AM, will never leave you in a weakened state, without help, hope or provision, for I AM, will strengthen you—making you strong enough to face whatever is challenging you in the moment; therefore, I AM, will always help you. I AM, shall forever support and defend you against any and all opposition; keeping you from sinking into the depths of despair and eternal death. I AM, will accomplish this, with My incomparable, strong and victorious, filled with all honor and might, Glorious and Powerful, Righteous Right Hand. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: If Papa God is for us, who or what can be against us? Nothing and no one! Therefore, no one and nothing will ever be successful in keeping Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives from coming to fruition. Therefore, there is never going to be a valid time or reason why we should ever be fearful, frightened, distraught, timid or afraid!

Papa God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us! Whatever He says He will do, He most definitely will do, because He is ever faithful, and when He does it, He will do it thoroughly, completely and that, with excellence, honor and glory.

When The LORD tells us to not even allow our hearts to ever be troubled or to be dismayed, we can take Him at His Word! When He tells us that in this life, this world, we are going to experience trouble, trials, temptations, attacks, ridicule, suffering, persecution, but, we are to be full of joy and cheer, and to not be discouraged because of any of it, as He has overcome this world and everything that could ever happen to us in this life; we are to rejoice and be glad, for He has promised to give us His strength, His peace, and His comfort, encouragement, refreshing, restoration and renewal!

Our’s is the victory forever and always, because The Most High, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is our LORD and Savior—The Great I AM, who is always there for us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

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: 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

Premise Question: Is it even remotely possible, to have the sensational and absolutely miraculous outcome, that effectuates and produces the greatly needed and desired results of total healing, real restoration and complete deliverance, for a person who is in sin, and needing to be made whole, without an open and truthful confession by them, along with, serious in intention, purposeful prayer, offered up urgently, with diligence and devotion, by a person who is righteous?

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (‭‭James‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So then, because there are wonderful results when we utilize the power of prayer, in our everyday lives, our ordinary interaction with one another should be, that we openly acknowledge, owning up to our own faults, our willful and deliberate lapses in good and right behavior, which are violations and transgressions of Papa God’s Holy Law, by being open, transparent and accountable to each other. We should also stand in the gap for one another, by offering up specific prayers of entreaties and requests for complete healing and restoration of spirit, soul and body; both for the individual and for the entire Company Of The Redeemed. The very act and ordinary practice of praying, with purposeful intent, as an individual member of The Company Of The Redeemed, is most potent. For it has a most desirable effect of exerting a great and mighty force, not of this world, that produces an efficacious result; which also prepares and makes ready, the individual, as well as, the whole Company Of The Redeemed, for works of service in Papa God’s Kingdom. (James 5:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quick and succinct answer to the premise question is: NOPE! Not-Obtainable-Possible-Ever! The reason it is not even remotely possible, is because where there is sin present and being practiced in an individual’s daily life, there is a greatly diminished capacity and availability of Papa God’s efficacious power to operate in the individual believer’s life; due to the fact that sin completely nullifies the marvelous and the miraculous from happening in the life of the believer who continues to participate in and practice sin.

Without a sincere, humble, open and honest confession of one’s sin and desperate need for wholeness, healing, restoration and deliverance, along with the efficacious and fervently offered up prayers of a believer in right standing with Papa God, the believer in need will not experience the desired and greatly needed results. For it is only the righteous who are granted the power and authority necessary to effect, in a positive way, the desperate condition of the one who is in need of deliverance and healing!

So, let’s confess our sins one to another, and then, pray for one another to receive the total healing and complete deliverance and restoration that’s made available to everyone of us, through the righteous among us, from Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!

There is power in confession, and great deliverance through prayer, with the emerging result of wholeness and healing for every believer! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/22- “Love, Do Good, Bless And Pray For The Difficult People In Your Life!” (Luke 6:27-28)

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: 07/22- “Love, Do Good, Bless And Pray For The Difficult People In Your Life!” (Luke 6:27-28)

Premise Question: Are we, The Company of The Redeemed, truly willing to listen to what The LORD is trying to tell us, and then, do we show that we’ve accepted what He is saying to us, by actually following, fulfilling and carrying out the specific instructions He has given us, as His stewards, to do?

““But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.” (‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:27-28‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

But to those of you who are willing to take to heart what I’m sharing here with you, let it teach and guide you, becoming the motivation for how you live your life: Love those who you’ve become distanced from, those who are no longer friends, but are now your enemies; therefore, you are not wanting to have anything to do with them any more, due to the virulent and perhaps violent animosity that now exists between you and them. Do good to and for those who now hate you, not just assenting in your mind to the ideal, but in your actions and deeds. And while you’re at it, choose to bless, not curse them, by speaking good things over them—things that will bring refreshing and bountiful provision into their lives. And finally, always devote yourself to praying specifically for those who have and presently are mistreating you! (Luke 6:27-28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: So, are we really willing to listen, willing to love, willing to do good, willing to bless and willing to pray? It’s an easy thing to listen to someone, knowing you don’t have to follow through with, or agree with what they are saying, but it is quite another thing if you know the one talking has the ultimate authority, power, position and influence over you!

It’s easy to love those who love you and don’t despise you, but quite a different thing to love those who do not love you, and in fact truly despise you!

When someone is nice to you and does good things for you, it’s a no brainer to be nice and good back to them, but entirely separate and excruciatingly difficult to be nice to and do good for those who, not only despise you, but literally hate and even have an aversion towards and absolute abhorrence of you!

And when you are being blessed by someone, oh how easy it is to reciprocate and return the blessing, but when someone is cursing you, it’s probably not going to be your initial reaction or response to bless them; but according to The LORD’S instruction, it most certainly should be!

And finally, we are more than happy to cry out to the LORD on behalf of those we love and adore and who’ve been so accommodating, generous and loving towards us, but The LORD’S specific command here, which is not by any means or stretch of the imagination a mere suggestion, is to pray earnestly for those who’ve, in any way, shape, form or fashion, hurt, wounded or harmed you; which includes physical, emotional, mental, or even your reputation and good name!

One more thing: we should not ever make excuses, give explanations, rationalizations, justifications, or equivocations, with surrounding or swirling mitigating circumstances. For although The LORD is completely understanding and compassionate, He still is not going to go against His own specific instructions and commands, by then coming into agreement with you and say; “well, in your case, I’ll make an exception!” Not going to happen, dear brothers, sisters and precious friends.

We all must choose, with The LORD’S help, to love, do good to, bless and pray for, even the most heinous and truly difficult people in our lives.

Remember the prayer of our LORD, uttered from the cross—”Father, forgive them and don’t hold it against them for what they have done to me, as they are unaware of what they have done and are still doing.” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/18- “Don’t Judge And Condemn Others, If You Want Forgiveness!” (Luke 6:37)

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: 07/18- “Don’t Judge And Condemn Others, If You Want Forgiveness!” (Luke 6:37)

Premise Question: Is it even a remote possibility for us to receive and experience the forgiveness of Papa God, if we refuse to forgive others?

““Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:37‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Refuse to pass judgement on others, by coming to a quick conclusion based upon your own opinions, thoughts, inferences or the input of others; thus, you will not incur Papa God’s judgement upon your own life. Do not ever indicate your strong disapproval upon others, by condemning them, declaring them unredeemable, incurable, or without hope, and you then, will not be thus, condemned by Papa God. Always, on all occasions, in any situation or circumstance, and with every opportunity that you are presented with, choose to forgive others, by absolving them, walking in release before them, giving up your rightful claim that you have against them, and then, canceling the debt you are owed. Do this, then Papa God will forgive and pardon you, releasing you from the debt that you owe to Him and are unable to pay, by remitting every one of your sins. (Luke 6:37 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! Not even a slim chance or remote possibility! Not gonna happen! For if we refuse to forgive others, then there is no forgiveness for us, as Papa God will only forgive us for our own sins, transgressions, failings, faults and mistakes, if we will choose to freely forgive, with the same degree and in the same manner that Papa God has so graciously forgiven us, the sins, transgressions, failings, faults and mistakes of others. (Matthew 6:15, Luke 17:4, Colossians 3:13, Mark 11:4, 25, Ephesians 4:32)

Our own forgiveness is connected and conditional upon us forgiving and releasing others. The more you give and extend forgiveness to others, the more forgiveness you’ll receive and experience. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP-07/13- “Bears, Bears And More Bears!” (Colossians 3:13)

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: 07/13- “Bears, Bears And More Bears!” (Colossians 3:13)

Premise Question: Really now, have you ever considered what kind of Bear you are and which Bear bests describes the One others see in you, and therefore, they, of a necessity, must learn to deal and interact with, on an ongoing basis; so, is it a Forbearing and Forgiving Bear, a Cuddly Warm and Fuzzy Teddy Bear, or an Angry, Easily Offended, Unbearable, Irritatingly Annoying, Unsociable, Always Hiding, Growling, Prowling and Pouting, Brooding Bear?

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ NIV)

Be long suffering and enduringly patient with each other, always walking in forgiveness and release towards one another; allowing the same love that Christ Jesus has shown towards you and others to be your monitor, guide, gage and regulator when dealing with any hurts, complaints, unfair or unjust treatment you may have experienced, as well as, any grievance you may have against another. Release them! Release them! Release them! Do it immediately, always and forever, in the same way, manner and gracious fashion, that The LORD Jesus Christ has forgiven and released you. (Colossians 3:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are urgently and specifically called to be righteous, good and affectionately loving, forbearing and forgiving, kind, considerate, full of patience, “Long-suffering Bears” with each other, who will choose to be the “Good News Bears” who will “Bear” all things, and will also be righteous “Fruit-bearing Bears.”

A “Bad News Bear” though, because of things that they may have experienced or gone through, over the course of their life, may become a wounded, disillusioned, depressed, “Hiding Bear,” with the attitude and disposition of a crazed, hurt, ready to bare its claws and maul with impunity, bad, onerous, with a horrible disposition, “Grim Grizzly Bear,” that’s always growling, prowling and pouting, a “Brooding Bear,” ever looking for someone or something to devour and destroy.

Dear LORD, help each of us to become forbearing, forgiving and enduringly patient with one another, “Bears,” and let us desire to be open and transparent with each other, in order to be part of the healing process that needs to take place; always remembering and being fully aware of how You were forbearing, forgiving and extremely patient, kind, considerate and long-suffering with each one of us!

So, just what kind of “Bear” are you perceived to be by others? Blessings…

PS: I hope you enjoyed the play on words, for there’s truth in them…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/12- “Love Your Neighbor, But Love Your Enemy Too!” (Matthew 5:43-44)

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: 07/12- “Love Your Neighbor, But Love Your Enemy Too!” (Matthew 5:43-44)

Premise Question: What have we heard, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, and what are we doing with what we have heard?

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭43-44‬ NLT)

“I’m quite sure that you are well aware of the Oral Law, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy,’ having heard it taught by the Scribes and Pharisees, but that is a perverted view of Papa God’s Word; which they have established as their own traditions and does not come from My Father who is in Heaven. What I’m telling you now, is the proper view and right understanding of Papa God’s Word. It is, love your enemies, those with whom you have conflict, are hostile towards or have an adversarial relationship with, and stand in the gap for them, when they persecute you, by praying for them, even when they are persistently harassing, oppressing, afflicting and being entirely unfair or cruel towards you,” (Matthew 5:43-44 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have heard it said, “love Papa God and love your neighbor!” And now, we’ve also heard it said, by The LORD Himself, to love our enemies, and not only that, but to pray for and bless them as well!

We are encouraged, exhorted and strongly admonished to love, pray and even bless, all those who presently may be actively pursuing us, with ill intent, in order to persecute, irritate and attack us, with the desired purpose and focus of inflicting pain and harming us, and that, seemingly, for no rhyme or reason!

They may mock us, tell and spread lies about us, saying all kinds of things that don’t add up or make any sense at all—stirring up people’s emotions, thoughts and feelings, so that others will have a twisted and wrong headed perception of us, and exhibit an absolutely horrible and terrible animas towards us!

Yes and yes again, it is for all those that are our enemies, that we are to exhibit love towards, to pray for and then, ask The LORD to bless them!

We must choose to do it The LORD’S way! We must decide to deliberately, and with great diligence and an enduring patience, love, pray for and bless, not only our neighbors, but our enemies as well! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/02- “We Are What We Think!” (Philippians 4:8)

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: 07/02- “We Are What We Think!” (Philippians 4:8)

Premise Question: Is what we think about and how we think, really that important, and does it have any effect upon or make a difference in our lives?

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ NLT)

And one last thing, my dearly beloved friends. Papa God ultimately desires that we all have a laser focus on being absolutely authentic, genuinely sincere and honorable, only involving ourselves in noteworthy, ethically proper and sound, free from all contamination, being completely chaste in all our activities and dealings, appearing delightful and pleasing, not only to the eye, but as well, to the heart and mind, inspiring reverence and affection, with great approval. So, anything that’s worthwhile or superior, deserving extraordinary laudable commendation and praise, these are the things that should consume and influence our thoughts, behavior and actions. (Philippians 4:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I love the encouraging message and instructions given in Philippians chapter four! For after the Apostle Paul tells his brothers and sisters to stay true to The LORD, he then expresses his great love for all the people of Papa God, and how he longs to see them again, by telling them that them staying true to The LORD is all the encouragement and eternal reward that he’ll ever need or desire to receive for his efforts and work amongst them.

He instructs and encourages them to settle their disagreements, to always be joyful and to rejoice continually, to always be considerate of others, to never forget that The LORD is returning, and to never worry about anything, but instead, always pray about everything, telling The LORD what they need and then thanking Him for all that He’s done for them. For then, His peace beyond belief will be experienced, by them, as He will guard and keep safe, their hearts and minds.

After all that, though, Paul leaves them with one last thing, which is perhaps the thing that is most significantly important, as it has a tremendous bearing and affect upon a person’s outlook in life—in the way it influences and effects their perception about everything that happens to them in the process of life, and also how they interact and perceive everyone they encounter in life.

It is, therefore, critically imperative, as it is vital to everything in life, that we fix our thoughts, the way we think and what we think about and focus on! And the only way to fix that, is to take Paul’s encouraging admonition of focusing on the good, the right, the pure, the honorable, the true, the admirably beautiful things in life, and to only think on the things that are excellent and worthy of high praise and honor.

If you try and not think about something by, with great effort and determination, focusing on trying not to think of it, you’ll have a really difficult time not thinking about what you’re trying not to think about! But, if you’ll think only about and focus only on the things you ought to be thinking about, the good and positive, righteous and true, then you’ll be able to fix your thoughts, and have a whole new outlook in life!

For we truly are greatly influenced and affected by what we think about and how we think! We Are What We Think! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/01- “Let The Whole World Know!”
(1 Chronicles 16:8)

Premise Question: What responsibility and obligation has not changed, but remains the same, from The Old Testament all the way through The New Testament and beyond, for the beloved chosen people of Papa God?

Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. (‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16‬:‭8‬ NLT)

Give voluntarily, holding nothing back, with your whole heart, all honor and thanksgiving, with great expressions of heartfelt gratitude, extolling the highest praise that can be given, to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—The Maker of Heaven and earth. Joyfully announce and boldly declare His Great and Magnificent Name to everyone everywhere; broadcasting a proclamation that establishes a true and trustworthy testimonial and record of a strong witness, that will not be rejected or refuted, and is gladly received in the very midst of every people group upon the face of the earth. So that, it will bring great notoriety, bringing to light what The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has accomplished for all of humankind anywhere and everywhere they may be existing, in His splendid and glorious creation. (1 Chronicles 16:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We have the obligation of giving thanks to The LORD for His loving, merciful and gracious gift of salvation, which includes experiencing the fullness of His complete joy and strength, as well as, His great comfort and perfect peace, and also provides us with an escape from death, destruction and eternal punishment; setting us free, by delivering us out of darkness and into His glorious light, bestowing and conferring upon us eternal life, to forever live in His presence.

Our responsibility that we’ve been commissioned to fulfill, as our unique mission, is to proclaim and declare, by announcing and shouting it from the rooftops, with boldness and courage, in the market square and literally to everyone everywhere, the Good News of His greatness and the goodness of His unfailing love, His great mercy and wonderfully sufficient grace.

We, the people of Papa God, are strongly encouraged and admonished to not hide the light that is within us, but to allow it to shine bright for all to see. For if we do not fulfill our responsibility of letting our light shine forth and do not shout and proclaim, with boldness, the greatness of The LORD to everyone everywhere, then the very rocks will cry out in our place!

Time to let the whole world know! Blessings…
