SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/18- “Wait For It—Patiently”… (Psalm 27:14)

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: 02/18- “Wait For It—Patiently”… (Psalm 27:14)

Premise Question: What does waiting patiently look like, and how do we, as believers, being members of The Company of The Redeemed, just do it?

Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD. (‭Psalms‬ ‭27‬:‭14‬ NLT)

Stay calm and resolved, with an audacious hopeful expectation, that The LORD will assuredly come to your rescue and aid, when you are facing or going through trial, trouble and tumult. Express and exhibit a tenacious fortitude, standing strong, as a valiant, stalwart servant of The Most High, with nothing to fear. Absolute Yes! Most assuredly stay calm and resolved, continuing to serve with gladness and joy, while waiting for the certain help and aid of The LORD to come to your rescue. (Psalm 27:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What waiting looks like, and how the believing child, of The Most High, does it. It starts and finishes with: always exhibiting faith and complete trust in The LORD, by staying calm and resolute in spite of the difficulty or hardship one may be experiencing and going through, by not quitting and giving up, no matter the intensity or stress of the trial, trouble or tumult, and by staying determined, being ever vigilant and relentless in the pursuit of fulfilling the divine will and purpose of Papa God, and to do this, with an attitude of gladness and joy, while always serving The LORD and others. So, “Wait For It … Wait For It—Patiently!” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/16- “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!” (Philippians 4:13)

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: 02/16- “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!”
(Philippians 4:13)

Premise Question: Can, will and does the strength of The LORD truly empower and equip us to do everything?

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
(‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NLT)

Armed with, “a can do attitude of fortitude,” being fully assured, that no matter what I may have to face or endure, in this life, I will always be sufficiently supplied, by and through Jesus Christ, with His efficacious power and might, to always have the courage, (nerve) to face anything, always being equal to any task and up for every challenge. (Philippians 4:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! There is nothing that is equal to, nor can stand against, the all powerful, all mighty, strength of The LORD! The only caveat though, is whether or not we, as believers, choose to place our complete trust, faith and reliance upon The LORD, and His true and faithful, intentional promise, given to us in this verse of His Holy Writ. For we must take upon ourselves the mind, and attitude, with the perspective of Christ, that being: a “can do attitude of fortitude,” with a resolute determination of “persistent perseverance.” Then, we’ll have the strength, courage and nerve to face anything and everything we may have to encounter, or must actually go through, in this life! Check out Romans 15:5 and Philippians 2:5. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/28/15- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/28/15- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the greatly beloved and cherished children of The Most High, to be afraid of?

“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, because I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has already personally selected you to be my cherished choice servants, do not ever be frightened of anything or anyone, for there is nothing to be afraid of, as I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall always be with you and shall never abandon, leave or forsake you. Therefore, don’t ever allow the things that are happening around you to dissuade, distress, discourage, dismay or terrorize you, for I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am your Protector and Redeemer. I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, will make you strong, with the power of My might; which shall be there, as an ever present help and strong support during difficult and troubling times. I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, have taken a firm hold on you, with My righteous right hand and shall never grow weary and then let go or release you from My, already assured, victorious strong grip. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s really no need to ever be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. Even though we will definitely encounter trouble, trial, tribulation, tumult, pain, suffering, hurt, disappointment, distressing hardships, as well as difficult and troubling times, during our brief time and spiritual sojourn here on this earth; there is still not ever a reason to loose hope, but there is always a reason to remember and not ever forget this; He, The LORD, has overcome it all, on our behalf, and will always be there with us, to comfort, to help, to encourage, to protect, to strengthen and support us, by empowering us to also be overcomers. It is because of His great promise, that He will never abandon, leave or forsake us, that our victory is already assured, no reason to fear, as our victory is already achieved and is here—a done deal! 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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/16/15- “A Faith That Pleases Papa God!” (Hebrews 11:6)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/16/15- “A Faith That Pleases Papa God!” (Hebrews 11:6)

Premise Question: Is your faith pleasing and award worthy to Papa God?

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And if it be your great aim and desire, in your life, to please Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, with your life; then, when you humbly, but with boldness, approach His Splendid Magnificence, you must first exhibit an authentic strong belief and certitude in the reality of His existence, for without an authentic faith, it’s quite absurd, as well as, a complete exercise in futility, to ever think you’ll have any success in pleasing Him! And, one other premise to fully understand and accept, for it is a promise that He, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Himself shall fulfill; that is, He will always give a just recompense award, to all those who intentionally make it their purpose and life’s quest, to diligently pursue Him and to do His will. (Hebrews 11:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our greatest quest, being our most sincere desire and aim in life, should always be, to please Papa God, The LORD GOD Almighty, by exhibiting a faith that believes He exists and is willing to do His bidding, in order to accomplish, His divine purpose and will for our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/12/15- “Finish Strong, Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/12/15- “Finish Strong, Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Premise Question: What should be the most important aspect and factor of completing the divine assignment given to us, by The LORD Himself?

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”‭‭ (Acts ‭20:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Notwithstanding, it matters very little to me, with regard to what may or may not happen to me personally, for I deem and recognize that my existence has very little value or usefulness, except, for only one reason and divine purpose, that of being entirely spent on what is most important to me, being my greatest aspiration; which is, to wrap-up and complete with a flourish, my life’s only ambition, the great undertaking, that The LORD Jesus Christ personally charged and assigned me with, entrusting to me the divine assignment of His divine purpose of announcing, with huge fanfare, a declaration of the “best and greatest news” humankind has ever or would ever receive, telling everyone that I have the privilege of coming in contact or have opportunity to interact with, have influence on, or in some way, might impact, of the incomparable and wonderful Good News of Papa God’s unfailing, extravagantly gracious, loving kindness. ( Acts 20:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our ultimate goal and aim in life, to finish strong, by completing the divinely assigned task of the “Great Commission” that has been entrusted to each one of us, by The LORD Jesus Christ, Himself; which of course is, telling everyone, everywhere, as we have opportunity, of Papa God’s great love, magnificent mercy and His wonderful saving grace. The Apostle Paul tells us that he gave his all, spent his all and became all he ever needed to become, in order to have the best and blest opportunity of reaching out to everyone, everywhere, no matter who they were or from whence they came, so that, perhaps, they might respond to the Good News and be eternally saved! The famous 19th century evangelist and teacher, D. L. Moody, had his own unique experience of not giving an opportunity to those who had attended his meeting one night, to respond to the message of the Good News and it was later that night, that the conflagration that is known as the Chicago Fire, broke out, with many perishing that night in the fire. It has been purported that of those that died in the fire that frightful night, many had been in D. L. Moody’s meeting earlier that night. It had such an impact upon the evangelist that he vowed to not ever close another meeting without giving a clear and strong presentation of the Good News to those in attendance, by granting them an opportunity to be forever changed now and for eternity, by the power and presence of a loving, most merciful and gracious Papa God through His Son, The LORD and Savior of humankind, Jesus Christ. One of my favorite quotes attributed to D. L. Moody is: “No man (one) ever sent by God is a failure!” The message that I’ve always taken from this quote is, no matter the outcome or results of whatever we do or wherever we may go, the most important aspect and what factors most, is that we have answered and been obedient to the call to go and faithfully finish strong, by completing the task and divine assignment given to us; therefore, we should and most necessarily leave the outcome and results to The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/06/15- “Note To Self—Then Too Everyone Else!” (James1:2-3)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/06/15- “Note To Self—Then Too Everyone Else!” (James 1:2-3)

Premise Question: Is there ever any good thing that can come, when we, The Company of The Redeemed, choose to complain, mumble, grumble or groan; rather than, looking at it with joy and considering it a privileged opportunity to grow and see the purpose and will of Papa God revealed in us?

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.” (‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Acknowledge, accept and embrace the difficult times in your life. Recognize them all, as honored and privileged opportunities, to experience the ultimate in pure delight, with great felicity, my dearly beloved fellow members in The Company of The Redeemed. For whenever, whomever and wherever you may encounter these difficult people and times, which will be hardships that are numerous, varied and sundry in kind, don’t ever let any of it, in any way, throttle or disable you, due to the reality of what you should already be aware, “au courant” of and familiar with; that being, the ongoing process, in your sojourn and walk of faith, of the evaluation and verification of your full confidence and complete trust and reliance that you’ve placed upon and in The LORD GOD Almighty. This then, will have the perfect result and effect of bringing into existence into your life, not just a lofty desire, thought or wonderful aspiration, but a valiant tenacious courage, a resolute determination and steady persistence, which will empower you, enabling you to stay on, not stray from, and to walk uprightly upon the path of Papa God’s divine purpose for your life. (James 1:2-3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! Complaining, mumbling, grumbling and groaning has never brought or bought anything good or righteous into our lives! Therefore, here’s something for everyone of us to seriously consider, then diligently, with devotion and dogged determination, follow! Note to self, then to everyone else: no more giving into moaning and groaning, mumbling and grumbling, bumbling and stumbling, crumbling into a heap of desperation and despair, being depressed and oppressed, completely suppressed, kept under duress. But, choose to joyfully accept, embrace and endure the hardships in your life, as part and partial of the process, for they are only a trace of Papa God’s unique and divine purpose being fully accomplished, in your sojourn of this life. So, choose to always rejoice in the midst of your ordeal and trial, knowing full well, that His perfect purpose is soon to be fulfilled. Blessings…
