SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/16- “Beyond Our Comprehension!” (Romans 11:33)

Premise Question: Why is it that humankind has such a difficult time being able to grasp, with full comprehension, the vast incalculable riches of the immeasurable, and unfathomable, wealth of wisdom, knowledge and perfect judgements of Papa God?

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:33‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

Oh the profundity, the complexity and vastness of the greatness of Papa God’s immeasurable abundance of His invaluable wisdom and marvelous knowledge—far beyond our ability to comprehend! For His method of making superbly perfect and great decisions cannot be understood or comprehended by searching them out even with great diligence, for they are completely unfathomable, and His course of action, of creating access to Him, is superior and undiscoverable, way beyond any knowledge or experience we may have had or ever shall have! (Romans 11:33 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We are not the first of humankind to struggle with being able to understand, with full comprehension, the immeasurable and unfathomable vastness of Papa God’s goodness, His love, mercy, grace, wisdom, knowledge and perfect judgements. In the Old Testament, Job was having great difficulty, as he was struggling and going through some unique and troublesome challenges in his life, so, in chapter 37 of Job, he decides to challenge Papa God’s wisdom; in the way Papa God chooses to do things and allows things to happen. What follows, in chapter 38 through to the end of Job, is Papa God’s response to Job’s thoughts and questions. He begins to pelt Job with a flurry of questions that Job is unable to answer. One of my favorites is: ““Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭38:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬) And then, Papa God demands that Job answer them! I absolutely love Job’s response. “Then Job replied to the LORD, “I am nothing—how could I ever find the answers? I will cover my mouth with my hand. I have said too much already. I have nothing more to say.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭40:3-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬) Good answer, but Papa God wasn’t quite finished yet! For He goes on with another flurry of unanswerable questions, further challenging Job to answer them.

Here is Job’s final perspective, belief and response, which is not a bad perspective, belief and response for all of us to have, as well! ““I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you. You asked, ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’ It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me. You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.’ I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭42:2-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Here’s the truth that the Prophet Isaiah got from Papa God: “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And here’s the revelation of this truth that the Apostle John received, and that we ought to fully accept, trust and believe: “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.” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

We, as humankind, are not going to figure it all out while here on this earthly plain. But one day, as has been shown in the scriptures, we will see and fully comprehend, for it shall be made crystal clear to all those who’ve put their believing faith and trust in Papa God and His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ!

PS. “I don’t know the why or the how, but I do accept that You, Oh LORD, must of had a very good reason, and therefore, one day, I know that I will understand completely.” (papadoncox) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/19- “The Way We Choose To Speak!” (Proverbs 15:1)

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: 05/19- “The Way We Choose To Speak!” (Proverbs 15:1)

Premise Question: Why does the tone of the words we speak and the attitude, way and manner in which we choose to deliver them, have such a huge impact on the resulting outcome of any situation or circumstance that we may be confronted with, or indeed must address?

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭1‬ NLT)

When responding to someone or something, in any situation or circumstance, a soft and kindly reply will tend to bring calm to the person or situation and will reverse the position or course, in a good and positive way, to a much preferred outcome and resulting consequences; while conversely, choosing to react with strong, severe language and an unpleasant attitude, will most likely instigate immense and intense emotional distress, producing an exacerbation of the offense and hurt, which foments and fosters great feelings of displeasure, resulting in horrible consequences! (Proverbs 15:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The words we choose to speak, along with our tone, the way and manner, as well as, the attitude that we have while delivering our words, will have a huge impact on determining the resulting outcome of any situation or circumstance being addressed.

We basically have two distinct choices, in any given situation. We can choose to react, using inflammatory words, or we can choose to respond, using calming and healing words. For when we choose to react, rather than respond, the resulting consequence could very well be described as, throwing gasoline on a fire; which has a strong possibility of turning into a conflagration, an out of control blazing fire that spreads quickly, with the potential of consuming and destroying everything and everyone in its path.

Conversely though, when we choose to respond, rather than react, with words that are full of meekness and humility, that are gentle, kind, calming, refreshing and encouraging, it will be conducive in promoting and creating an atmosphere of healing, peace and tranquility; effectively minimizing, reducing and perhaps even completely extinguishing the flame of the fiery situation or circumstance.

The way we choose to speak or address someone or something will always have ramifications, for it will either produce positive results or dire consequences.

Here are a few sayings that have either been used in the past or have recently come into vogue: “You better check yourself before you wreck yourself!” “Don’t speak to me in that tone of voice, young man!” “Don’t pour salt into an open wound!” “Stop picking at that scab and let it heal!” “If you don’t change your attitude you’re going to be changing your address!” And finally: “You’ll attract and catch more bees with honey than vinegar!”

So, choose your words wisely, have the right attitude of gracious humility and deliver your response with supreme aplomb, by being gentle, kind, meek and merciful. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/05- “Building A House Of Wisdom For Life!” (Proverbs 9:10)

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: 05/05- “Building A House Of Wisdom For Life!” (Proverbs 9:10)

Premise Question: Where do we begin, what do we do first, and then, after we’ve started, how do we proceed in building the structure of the house of wisdom for our life?

Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭9‬:‭10‬ NLT)

It is extremely wise and prudent, on your part, to honor, with a reverential awe and respect, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, as it will be the most important and bedrock decision that you’ll ever need to make in life. And then, when you deliberately pursue and increase your knowledge of The Most High, it will give you strong support, great insight and understanding, as well as, a more excellent and preferred outcome in your life. (Pro. 9:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The beginning of being really smart, if you’re going to be a successful, wise and prudent builder, is to have a huge and healthy dose of holy reverential awe and honorable respect for The LORD Most High—who is The Sovereign Papa God Almighty! There is not a better way or place to start, in building your life house right. For it is the very foundation building blocks of all that is virtuous, good, right and holy, and is the firm and sure bedrock of a strong and overcoming faith, that’s built into the very structure of the house of wisdom for your life.

Papa God’s Word declares that a house that’s built by wisdom will become strong and stable, with great insight and understanding, and will make good sense.

And when knowledge of The Most High is diligently pursued and added, it will have a wonderful abounding effect, with desirable results and blessings of a life that’s securely built upon the bedrock of wisdom, rather than the disastrous results of building your life on any other foundation, which ultimately becomes nothing, as it is built on sifting sand. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/16- “The Smartest Thing!” (Proverbs 4:7)

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: 04/16- “The Smartest Thing!” (Proverbs 4:7)

Premise Question: Can we, or should we even attempt to, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, successfully navigate the seas of life, and ultimately make good, right, just and wise decisions, that will have the desired and most preferable result, of us being able to thrive, flourish and survive in this life, without ever seeking after and actually be in possession of, in order to be led, guided, influenced and directed by, Papa God’s divine wisdom?

Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ NLT)

Diligently pursuing and chasing after wisdom, with everything you’ve got, and with all your might, for the ultimate ideal purpose of being in full possession of it; in order to be led, guided, protected and directed by it in this life, should be your greatest ambition, and will prove to be the most important focus and the smartest decision that you’ll ever make in this life! And then, the desired result will be; that no matter whatever else you do in this life, you’ll always have the necessary acumen and wherewithal to grow and mature in ethical integrity, and also have the ability to see and judge things in a most excellent, honorable and praiseworthy way. (Proverbs 4:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The “Captain Obvious” answer to the Premise Question is: an absolute, NOPE! WISDOM-Seek it, ask for it, apply it, be taught and trained by it and don’t settle for anything less than Papa God’s divine WISDOM! For if you choose to do this, it will be the smartest, being the most brilliant, thing you ever do in this life and it will be a decision that will reward you with great benefits and one that you’ll never regret or have any residue of remorse!

There isn’t anything, in his life, more precious or that holds more value, or that will be more helpful and beneficial to you, than having Papa God’s divine wisdom leading, influencing, guiding, protecting and directing you in this life! For without it, you won’t be making very good choices and decisions and you will definitely not experience the best results for your life! Blessings…
