SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/04- “As Long As I Have Breath—I Will Praise The LORD!” (Psalms 63:4-5)
Premise Question: For what duration and in what way and manner, should we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, honor The Name of The LORD GOD Almighty?
“I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.” (Psalms 63:4-5 NLT)
It is of my own volition, that I deliberately, with great diligence, devotion and determination, each and everyday of my life, for as long as I shall have breath, choose to honor You, O LORD, wholeheartedly, with every fiber and all the strength of my being, by offering up to You, my highest and most extravagant praise and worship, unto Your magnificent, incomparable and splendidly glorious Name. In so doing, I shall be filled with the glory of Your presence, being completely content, absolutely gratified and supplied abundantly, with every kind of the most delectable of fare. Therefore, I shall not ever stop lifting my hands, my heart and my voice, with expressions of great and exuberant joyful praise unto You, LORD GOD Almighty. I will utter these ecstatic expressions, with my mouth and lips, and with singing, that shall come from the very depths of my most grateful and satisfied heart and soul, even within the within of the innermost part of my being. (Psalms 63:4-5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, as fully accepted and sealed members of The Company of The Redeemed, should always be joyfully ready and willing to, at all times, on all occasions and in every circumstance and situation, without exception, offer up unto The LORD GOD Almighty, by invoking, bestowing upon and honoring His Name, with constant expressions of extravagant praise and worship; in songs, that are filled with exuberant joyful singing, which should ultimately come from deep within the within of our innermost beings, being forever grateful, full of joy, extremely thankful, hearts and souls.
Therefore, as long as I have breath—l will praise The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/14- “Papa God Has No Peers!”
(2 Samuel 7:22)
Premise Question: What insight, instruction and understanding, can we gain and take away from this magnificent statement of truth, that was spoken by King David, in a time of thoughtful, thankful praise and prayer, which he offered up to The Sovereign Most High, Papa God?
“How great you are, O Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you! (2 Samuel 7:22 NLT)
How magnificently great and awesome You are, with all power and authority, The Utmost Excellent Supreme Ruler, The Almighty God and Sovereign LORD, who is exalted preeminently above all others! Nothing and no one is worthy of comparison, for You are most distinguished! You have no peers! You alone are Papa God, The Most High! The record is clear, everything that’s been told about You and that we continue to see and experience personally, verifies the Truth of who You are! (2 Samuel 7:22 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The insight that we gain is: Papa God hasn’t any peers that can be compared to Him, because there is no other God like Him; none that preceded or predated Him, nor none that has, does, or will ever supersede Him, for they have never existed, do not exist, nor will they ever exist!
(2 Samuel 7:22)
The wonderful life giving instruction that we can learn and should faithfully follow and devote ourselves to is: Papa God is to be worshipped, honored, obeyed and praised above all others and all else; for He should take the preeminent place in our hearts and lives, and our life house should be built upon Him and Him alone, The Solid Rock! (1 Chronicles 16:29, Luke 6:48)
The place of understanding that we come into is: He is the sure, Solid Rock, foundation and that whatever He says and declares shall come to pass and be completely fulfilled! (2 Samuel 22:31-32, Isaiah 55:11)
Finally, we all should accept, as truth, this powerful statement made in First Chronicles: “Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.” (1 Chronicles 29:11 NLT)
Why? Because, Papa God has no peers! Blessings…

LOVE WINS, EVERY TIME!
“God allows what He hates to accomplish what He loves…”
A great quote that has been used by many different individual people, to respond to those folks who may ask why Papa God allows terrible and absolutely horribly awful things to happen…I’ve seen this quoted this past week by some of the family members of the victims of the racially motivated, murderous actions of an individual filled with anger, malice and hate. The kind of hate that can only be overcome with the love and goodness of Papa God, who Himself put on display, when He offered up His precious Son, Jesus Christ, who was without sin, upon a cruel cross, filled with abject shame and humiliation, to bear and carry all of humankind’s sin and transgressions, in order to overcome the darkness and evil that’s within each and every heart of humankind! Papa God’s only begotten laid His life down, as a ransom payment, so that He could purchase us, to be set free from sin and its penalty, taking us out of the darkness into His Holy Light, by removing every transgression and purifying every heart of all sin and iniquity, including all envy, jealousy, prejudice, resentment, hate, malice and murderous thoughts; and replacing it all with His unfailing love, undeserved mercy and abounding grace and His great loving kindness, so that, we can live in His presence of perfect peace and everlasting joy for eternity!
It has been quite encouraging and incredibly inspirational to see Papa God’s people of Mother Emanuel AME, as well as, all the people of Charleston, SC and beyond, allow His goodness and love to overcome and conquer the evil that was sent to steal, kill and destroy…When the people of God do this, love wins every time!
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. (Romans 12:21 NIV, NLT) It would be a good thing to take in the entire chapter of Romans12…Blessings…
