SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/31/15- “Papa God’s Commands Bring Comfort And Joy!” (Psalms 119:143)

Premise Question: What can one do, where does one turn, who should one call out to, when hemmed in, completely surrounded, pressed hard and buffeted on every side, without any relief or point of escape in sight?

“As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.”
(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:143‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Even though I may become overwhelmed during difficult, discomforting, disturbing, as well as, distressful taxing times of trials, troubles, turbulent and turbid circumstances, that are filled with anxiety, I am still consumed and captured by my love for Your commands, for when I turn to them, they give me much needed comfort, real joy and pure delight. (Psalm 119:143 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What can one do, where does one turn and who should one call out to, when being overwhelmed by the events and complexities of life? One can and absolutely should seek the face of The Rock that the builders rejected and then, turn unto His commands. Jesus Christ is The Rock and Cornerstone of our redeeming salvation, for in Him and them only, does one find the very essence of real joy, sweet comfort, perfect peace and pure delight! This has always been, is now and forever will be true; regardless of the severe situations, complicated circumstances and dire consequences one may face in life. Even when one is completely surrounded and hemmed in, with no where to run, no place to turn, no way out, no point of escape in sight, and further still, even while being beaten and buffeted on every side, one can confidently, with full assurance, choose to turn and look to The LORD, The Rock of our salvation, and find His life giving and renewing commands, which brings us His sweet comfort, real joy and pure delight. I really like the way the Apostle Paul puts it in (2 Corinthians 4:8) “We are hard pressed on every side by many terrible troubles, and yet, we survive and are not decimated and entirely crushed.” He goes on to further say: “We are uncertain, being completely perplexed and troubled, but we are sustained and still remain filled with The joy of The LORD, even though, in the natural, we would typically be utterly driven into the depths of depression and despair, and yet, we rejoice and are lifted high!”

As I was meditating on (Psalms 119:143), a song began clearly and vividly playing in my head. In my mind, I heard my sister Terry singing the song, “I Go To The Rock.” I was so moved by the experience, that I was compelled to call my sister and tell her about it! As soon as I told her the reason for my call, she immediately began singing it to me over the phone! It was perfect! Thanks sis…This experience, I believe, tells us, that is exactly what each of us should immediately do, at all times, on all occasions, in any situation and in every circumstance; go to The Rock of our salvation and look unto His life giving, filled with joy, comfort and delight commands. Blessings… #YouVersion #findjoyinthecommandsofTheLORD #gotoTheRock

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/12/15- “Papa God’s Love Is Lavished Upon Generation After Generation!” (Psalms 103:17-18)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/12/15- “Papa God’s Love Is Lavished Upon Generation After Generation!” (Psalms 103:17-18)

Premise Question: Just what kind of love is a love that continues on down throughout the ages, generation after generation, never ending, always extending, ever mending, not ever pretending, but certainly contending, tending and bending towards, as well as, lending a reliable, huge and helping hand to all those who are faithful and will fear and revere, honor and obey His covenant and commands?

“But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments!” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:17-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

From eternity past through eternity future,
the all consuming, never failing, unconditional, reliable love of The LORD,
is always going to be lavished upon those who are His beloved children;
all those who will faithfully worship and honor Him, in holy reverential awe. Generation after generation, without end, will know of His love and salvation,
by keeping, obeying and following His righteous commands and directives. This will have a glorious and wonderfully beneficial effect in each of their lives,
as The LORD’S righteousness and love, which will be clearly seen by all,
will be extended and poured out upon all, even to all succeeding generations! (Psalms 103:17-18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Quick answer: It is the love of Papa God! There is not another love like it, period! His love is the only love that can set the captive free! His love is truly the only love that releases the prisoners from darkness and bondage! The only love that enables us to walk in love before others, forgive, release and bless others, when we’ve been wronged, wounded or hurt by them and to truly forgive and release ourselves, when we’ve hurt, wounded or harmed others. It is the love of Papa God that releases and sets us free from our bitterness, anger, addictions, predilection, rage, resentment, regrets and remorse; “for whom The Son sets free, is free indeed!” Oh that we would choose to tap into His love, and then make it our life’s ambition to see it carried out in our daily lives, passing it on down the line to every generation that we have the privilege, honor and opportunity of touching and influencing with His great love. One of my favorite passage of Scripture is found in 1 John, here it is: “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.” (1 John 3:1-3 NLT) Blessings… #YouVersion #whatkindofloveisthis #theloveofPapaGodremainsforever #wearethechildrenofPapaGod
