SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/29- “Humility Is The Way—And Don’t Ever Worry!” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

Premise Question: Just how important is it for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of Papa God, and then, to not worry, be offended or be anxious about anything?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

You will do well, and, do yourself a huge favor, when approaching The LORD, to come before Him with a humble and contrite spirit; serving and putting The LORD and then others, before and above yourself is the key, and that, without pride or arrogance, but with a gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. Consequently, by submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, His unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in such a 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. There is one caveat, though, He will not do this in your time frame, but in His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His appointed time. So, don’t spend any valuable time or resources on expending yourself in worrisome anxious thoughts or activities, trying to please others, but leave all of that anxiety with The LORD, and accept the truth, that He loves and cares for you much more than anyone else ever could or would even have the capacity or ability to do so. (1 Peter 5:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In humility, love and serve Papa God—The LORD GOD Almighty, first and foremost, with your whole heart, mind and strength, in your life!

Then, love and serve others, as a humble, gracious and most grateful servant of The Most High. Leave the timing of any and all promotions up to The LORD, and definitely don’t waste any time or resources on being anxious or offended about anything, in your life, because He, The LORD, truly loves and cares for you much more than you could ever imagine or even begin to comprehend! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/09- “Generosity, Humility, Thinking About Others And Their Interests, Is The Way We Ought To Go And Be!” (Philippians 2:3-4)

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: 11/09- “Generosity, Humility, Thinking About Others And Their Interests, Is The Way We Ought To Go And Be!” (Philippians 2:3-4)

Premise Question: How are we to comport ourselves, and what specific attitudes, behaviors and perspectives are we exhorted and strongly encouraged to have and exhibit towards others, in this life?

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” (‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Anything and anytime you choose to involve yourself in, or find yourself doing something in life, it’s extremely important that you make sure it’s not ever done with the attitudes of, “it’s all about me” and “how is this going to make me look and appear to others.” Nor should you ever display haughtiness or arrogance, by exhibiting a pompous, ostentatious attitude of superiority. Conversely, though, the most appropriate, and thereby, acceptable approach, perspective and attitudes to have and exhibit is to, with great humility and self-abnegation, choose to always significantly value others above yourself. You should do this, by making what is important and necessary to others, in their lives, a priority in your life, before addressing your own personal needs and interests. Each of us would greatly benefit by having these attitudes, with this most wise and prudent perspective and approach. For it’s not “about me,” it’s about others! (Philippians 2:3-4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We are, as individual members of The Company of The Redeemed, exhorted and strongly encouraged to comport ourselves, in such a determined manner and fashion, that we exhibit attitudes, perspective and behaviors towards others, those we come in contact with in our daily sojourn, a selflessness, characterized by devotion to the care, concern welfare and interest of others, and that, without displaying any pretense or trying to impress and influence how or what they may perceive or think of us personally, but with true humility and grace, always being courteous, civil and generous, while showing great respect towards them, by never acting or exuding an air of superiority nor a sense of entitlement or conceit.

We should ever be looking to be involved and invested in others lives, in a positive and helpful way, by being fully engaged, with a willingness to participate in any way and on any level that shows sincere compassion, empathy and genuine concern, and which effectively meets, satisfies and assists them, while addressing the real needs of those we are deliberately making a significant valued sacrificial investment in, for the specific goal and purpose of truly helping and making an impactful life-changing difference in their lives, giving all the glory, honor and praise to The LORD.

So, being generous, walking in humility, while thinking about others and their unique and specific interests, by looking out for them, rather than only looking out for our own interests and needs, is truly the way we ought to choose to comport ourselves and the way we ought to go and be! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/23- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On’! —But Do ‘Put On’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)

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: 09/23- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On’! —But Do ‘Put On’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)

Premise Question: Did Papa God choose us because we are a righteous, holy and pure people, or did He choose us because He loves us and desires that we become a righteous, holy and pure people; with His divine help and through His gracious provision of His Son—our redeeming LORD and Savior— Jesus Christ?

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Therefore, since you’ve been divinely selected, because of The LORD GOD Almighty being favorably inclined towards you, to be one of His very own devout and cherished family members, of The Company of The Redeemed, you must make sure you are always clad appropriately, with these vitally important attributes, wearing them at all times, for all to see and personally experience. Now, regarding all of these attributes, don’t just be a “put on,” but actually put them on! Put on compassion, being moved to action, with sympathy, becoming empathetic towards others plight, by doing something that will really offer them the help needed, in order to alleviate their condition. Put on kindness, exhibiting kind benevolent favor, that’s thoughtful, helpful and cordial. Put on humility, not elevating yourself, by thinking you are superior or above others. Put on gentleness, always displaying a meek, mild and calm disposition and manner towards others. And finally, put on patience, by showing great restraint and self-control, choosing to learn and train yourself not to be reactionary, but responsive. Not hot headed, but even tempered, persistent, long suffering, and that, without any grumbling or complaint. (Colossians 3:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh what joy and pure delight, with an absolute certitude and a wholehearted gratitude, that’s full of exuberant rejoicing and thoughtful thanksgiving, being lifted up continually unto Papa God, His Son and The Holy Spirit, who is The King Eternal, The LORD of all, The One True and Faithful Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is The Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, and is The One who comforts, heals and restores, forgives and renews, and The One who chooses and loves, and gives us an abundant new life, and that, forevermore.

He is The One who, with His divine enabling, asks us to clothe ourselves, each and everyday, with His divine, yet quite practical, as well as, being extremely beneficial, attributes of The LORD.

He greatly desires that we be very tenderhearted, showing mercy and compassion, with great affection and benevolence, towards others. Papa God wants us to be kind to one another and others, being gracious, showing favor and generosity towards others.

It is of the utmost importance that we clothe ourselves in humility, walking and comporting ourselves in lowliness and exhibiting meekness towards others.

Our attitude and approach towards others, should always be characterized as being gentle, amiable and with much caring and real concern.

And finally, we must exhibit the divine and unique quality of being patient, having a huge reservoir, full to overflowing, of patience, calmness, steady composure, long suffering and forbearance.

So, don’t be a “Put On,” but, “Put On” all these attributes of The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

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: 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

Premise Question: How can it be that our total surrender is what guarantees our ultimate and complete victory in life?

“For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.”
‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭149:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself takes great pleasure in filling His own precious and most cherished people, The Company of The Redeemed, with exuberant joy, satisfaction and fulfillment; for He places upon their heads, all those who walk in humility before Him, a guaranteed triumphant glorious crown, that will never fade, nor can it ever be taken away in defeat, as they, His people, have delightfully pleased The LORD in their humble surrender to Him, and have therefore, been rewarded the everlasting crown of victory! (Psalms 149:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our ultimate triumph and crown of victory is inextricably tied to our humility and total surrender to The LORD GOD Almighty. For when we please and truly delight The LORD, by totally and completely surrendering everything to Him, it causes Him to honor and reward us, by conferring upon us a glorious victors crown of everlasting joy, peace, righteousness, and eternal life.

Our ultimate victory, is therefore, absolutely assured and guaranteed, when, and only when, we humbly surrender to Him every area and part of our lives; our wills, our relationships, our ways, our work, our behaviors our goals, dreams and aspirations, all of it to His way, His will, divine purposes and desires for our lives.

The only way to win then, and receive the delightful, satisfying and fulfilling, everlasting crown of victory, is total and complete surrender! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/21- “The Way Of Humility Is Best Chosen!” (Proverbs 18:12)

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: 08/21- “The Way Of Humility Is Best Chosen!” (Proverbs 18:12)

Premise Question: Just what is the marked differences between haughtiness and humility, and where does each of them end up?

“Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In advance of a disastrous failure overtaking a person’s life, and causing their complete undoing, resulting in ruination of a respectable reputation, and also accompanied by great loss; the issue begins in the innermost part of the person’s being, which is, the seat of their emotions, ethics, desires and attitudes—their heart. Now, unfortunately for them, when a person gives the self over to being highfalutin, pretentious, arrogantly supercilious and disdainfully contemptuous, disaster always follows. But, when an individual approaches life with a “down to earth,” genuinely meek, as well as, modest and humble heart, by not ever exhibiting an air of superiority, thinking they are better than someone else; then, that is the precursor that shows up, by making an appearance ahead of the huge blessings and benefits, along with the great honor, respect and high esteem, that will be conferred upon each individual’s life, who displays such humility. (Proverbs 18:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Haughtiness, which creates a debilitating blind spot in a person’s life, is accompanied by its self-centered, cantankerous, being recalcitrant and stubborn attitudes, as well as, being entirely incorrigible, intractable and snobbish, while displaying, disdainfully proud and obstinate behaviors, which are full of scorn and arrogant pomposity, will always pave the way for a person’s life to be ushered onto the path that will ultimately lead to utter devastation, complete ruination, ending in total destruction of one’s life and reputation!

Humility, conversely though, with its attitudes and behaviors of lowliness, meekness, gentleness, deference, reverence, respect and regard for Papa God and others, creates perfect vision and discernment in a person’s life, as it opens up the lines of communication with Papa God’s Spirit, in order to develop a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, who then becomes our spiritual guide, by the Spirit, directing and leading us to the way and upon the path of eternal life, divine wisdom, perfect peace and the fullness of everlasting joy!

Therefore, always remember: The way of humility is always best chosen! Haughtiness is the quickest way to wreck yourself! Humility is the only way to great honor! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!” (Proverbs 11:2)

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: 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!”
(Proverbs 11:2)

Premise Question: Why do some people choose the way of pride, which leads to devastating disgrace and destructive demise, when everyone is given the wonderfully blest opportunity to choose the way of humility, which leads to wisdom, peace, satisfaction, fulfillment and joy?

“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭11:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When adulation, adoration and applause,
is heaped upon people’s lives,
then arrogance, hubris, insolence,
a full blown pride may arise,
swelled up in all of its pretense,
devastating disgrace and destructive demise,
but a meek, lowly and contrite heart of civility,
filled with modesty, courtesy and polite respect,
overcomes all arrogant insolent hubris, with humility,
which then brings wisdom from above,
in all of its truth, honor, good judgement and insight,
teaching and nurturing us with His unfailing love. (Proverbs 11:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Don’t allow pride, along for the ride, in your life! For its resulting consequences, when allowed to ride and rule in your life, are a loss of respect, honor and esteem, accompanied by, devastating disgrace, abject humiliation, total annihilation and utter destruction!

So, why anyone would ever choose to allow pride to ride along, to be the ruling influence in their life, lacks good sense, understanding or the ability to accept and comprehend the eventuality of the guaranteed outcome! There is, though, an actual cause and reason we can point to, that has a huge bearing on why one may succumb to being strongly influenced, carried away and overwhelmed in choosing to be led and directed by pride over humility.

Pride can be extremely intoxicating, as one can become completely inebriated and drunk on the praise, recognition and accolades being heaped upon them by others. It can cause a person to become confused, befuddled, delirious, vision impaired, unable to see themselves and things in their life for what they really are.

We are all subject to becoming captivated by our pride and the praise of others. It can have the debilitating affect on us of becoming imbalanced, beside ourselves, resulting in emotional and mental stupidity. When this occurs, we lose our ability to appropriately discern or make good judgements, and as a direct result, wise decisions are rarely, if ever, made!

So, don’t allow pride to ride and rule and reign in your life, where ignominy and shame prevails, but choose the way of humility and meekness, which leads to wisdom, peace and joy.

Remember, when we lose our balance, we are subject to falling! “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬) 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- 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- 06/29- “Restore Our Joy!” (Psalms 51:12)

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: 06/29- “Restore Our Joy!” (Psalms 51:12)

Premise Question: Does any of Papa God’s dearly beloved children, have the capability of experiencing the fullness of His joy and His gracious gift of redeeming salvation, without initially approaching Him, with a humble and broken spirit and a heart that’s inclined towards and willing to obey Him?

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. (‭Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭12‬ NLT)

Bring me, Your humble, broken and extremely grateful servant, back to the place and moment where You first shared with me the epitome and very essence of Your complete joy, in it’s highest degree and fullest measure, Your salvation, my redemption. I entreat You, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, to bestow upon me, Your humble, broken and full of gratitude servant, a right disposition in my spirit, with a willing heart that’s determined to always honor and obey You; for only You, O Lord, can truly sustain me. (Psalm 51:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Quick answer: Nope! For although it is Papa God, through His Son Jesus Christ, His Holy Scriptures and by the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit’s influence, guidance and the pouring out into and upon our lives, of His comfort, peace and joy, which restores our soul, renews our spirit, refreshes our body and returns us back to The LORD, in right relationship, in order to fully experience the sweet fellowship and the full and the complete restoration of His joy and His redeeming, merciful and gracious, personal deliverance—even the salvation of our entire being, without true humility being expressed by an individual, which is a broken and contrite spirit, it is a complete and total impossibility.

For it truly is He, and only He, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, our loving and most merciful and gracious Papa God, who has the ability to renew and refresh, revitalize and restore us back to Him, as His joyful delight and His emancipated, set free to worship and adore Him, precious and beloved very own children.

We should therefore, desperately want and seek to be restored by the joy of His salvation, for we all are in dire need of it! And we can only find, acquire and get it, though, if we are inclined towards and willing to obey Him, with a humble heart that’s broken and contrite.

The LORD GOD Almighty is no respecter of persons, so if you desperately want and earnestly seek Him, and desire to do His will and to be restored with the joy of His salvation, in your life, you will only find Him, if you seek Him with all of your heart, in humility, brokenness and obedience.

Remember, The LORD says that He will never turn away from, refuse or despise, a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart. (Psalm 51:17)

Restore our joy, O LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/25- “Humility Elicits Papa God’s Gracious Favor And Power Every Time!” (James 4:6-7)

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: 06/25- “Humility Elicits Papa God’s Gracious Favor And Power Every Time!” (James 4:6-7)

Premise Question: When do we, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, actually have the full power, authority and backing from Papa God, to tell the enemy of our soul, the devil and all his minions, to get lost; and at what point does our enemy have to comply?

And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (‭James‬ ‭4‬:‭6-7‬ NLT)

And, as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly delineates, His gracious favor will never run out, come up short or in anywise ever be found deficient, but will always be more than enough, being completely sufficient on every occasion and in any situation or circumstance. Although Papa God will always be ever ready and willing to grant the full measure of His grace and favor towards those who remain humble, He will also, always be hostile towards, with great resistance, those who persist in being insolent and full of pride. So then, yield yourself, in humble submission, under the power and authority of Papa God Almighty; making this your first and foremost priority in your daily spiritual walk and life. For when you permanently revoke the license of the enemy of your soul, the devil, to no longer have the ability to gain access, in order to operate and create havoc in your life, by you always humbly submitting and yielding yourself to Papa God Almighty, you’ve not merely just temporarily suspended the license of your enemy, the devil, to operate in your life by just resisting, but have now, by striving and standing against him, with the help of The Almighty, he, the devil, shall and must take flight in fright, swiftly, without delay, moving far far away from you. (James 4:6, 7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The key to effectively resisting the devil and all of his devices, schemes and evil minions, and then to have him cease and desist his actions taken against us, so that he then takes flight and leaves us alone; is to first, rid ourselves of any and all insolence, arrogance and pride, by coming before The presence of The LORD in total humility, respectfully and humbly, submitting ourselves before The Almighty, Papa God, in reverential awe.

We can resist the devil until we’re blue in the face or until the cows come home! But, it will all be for naught and will have no effect, unless and until we do first things first; which is to humbly submit ourselves to The Almighty— Papa God.

The devil and his minions do not have to listen to us one iota, as long as he is still being given access to our life because of our illicit, wayward and disobedient ways. For until and unless we choose to humble ourselves in obedient submission, by coming into agreement and full compliance with His Holy Writ, we still haven’t revoked his license to operate in our lives!

We all need to stop granting the devil and his minions access to our lives, and immediately choose to humbly submit ourselves to Papa God, so that our resisting will not be in vain, and our enemy, the devil, must then, get lost forever!

Remember, when we humble ourselves and submit to Papa God, that’s when we have all power and authority to resist the devil, and it is at that point, that the devil must comply, by taking flight and fleeing! Blessings…
