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: PDCP- 12/03- “O LORD, You Alone Are My LORD GOD Almighty, And Perfect In All You Do!” (Isaiah 25:1)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/03- “O LORD, You Alone Are My LORD GOD Almighty, And Perfect In All You Do!” (Isaiah 25:1)
Premise Question: Why should we praise The LORD GOD Almighty?
“O LORD, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.” (Isaiah 25:1 NLT)
Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein; You, O LORD, The One True GOD, are my LORD GOD Almighty! I, Your humble and grateful servant, choose to extol You, with exuberant and extravagant joyful praise and worship. I do this, by lifting my voice and heart up in exaltation of Your Holy Name, which is above every name, to the highest place of honor and recognition. For You, O LORD, are always completely faithful in performing, with extraordinarily perfect precision, every gloriously incredible and wonderful thing that You do, have done and will yet do. All this, You have done, from before the very beginning of time, being divinely purposed, planned and determined, as to what is to happen, according to Your desired will and most excellent supreme design, which has already been eternally established, even before the foundations of the world. (Isaiah 25:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, the people of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, being fully accepted, with all rights and privileges therein, as sealed members, in excellent standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, should, without intrepidness, shame or reserve, declare and proclaim to everyone everywhere, that He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is The One True God, Whom we love, honor and serve. And, that we should also be telling everyone everywhere, of His glorious gracious acts, as well as, telling them, one and all, of His great unfailing love and unmatched wonderful deeds.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/26- “Give Thanks To Papa God—Tell Others Of His Goodness!” (Psalms 9:1)
Premise Question: What attitude, condition and personal action should we have, exhibit and take, that truly determines, shows and proves, that we, the people of Papa God, are actually offering up to The LORD, authentic praise and worship, true honor and reverence, with real thanksgiving, sincere appreciation and heartfelt gratitude?
“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.” (Psalms 9:1 NLT)
It is my great privilege, delightful pleasure and extreme honor to choose, of my own volition, with a purposeful determination and strong conviction, to make it my daily practice and disposition, of always expressing thanks and exuberant praise, with a heart full of gratitude and appreciation to You, my LORD and my Papa God; holding nothing back or in reserve, I am fully persuaded and devoted to declaring to everyone everywhere, with much enthusiasm, all about Your miraculous mighty acts, Your wonderful works, Your glorious exploits and gracious deeds. (Psalms 9:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: A humble and contrite attitude of gratitude, that comes from and is continually being expressed from, a heart full of joyful rejoicing praise, honor and thanks; and then, tells others of The LORD’s excellent goodness, greatness and wonderful deeds, is what determines, shows and proves, that our praise, worship and honor of Him is truly authentic and absolutely real.
We, as believers and the people of Papa God, should make it our aim in life, to always, without holding anything back in reserve, choose to give all thanks to Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, and too, as we have opportunity, should always choose to tell others about His gloriously, filled with wonderful grace, great goodness and matchless mercy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/25- “Don’t Just Give Papa God Thanks Now And Then, But Give Him Thanks Everyday, Continually, All The Day Long, Now And Forevermore!” (1 Chronicles 29:13)
Premise Question: Is there ever an inappropriate, wrong time or occasion, for the people of Papa God to express thanksgiving and gratitude, offered up in sincerity, coming from hearts full of gratefulness, by giving all thanks, honor, praise and true worship, unto His matchless and most glorious Name?
““O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!”
(1 Chronicles 29:13 NLT)
Without any delay or procrastination, at this present moment in time and on this exact occasion, as well as, into the immediate future and beyond, at all times and on every occasion, we, Your very own chosen ones, all ascribe to You, Papa God, The Creator of Heaven and earth, our Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, thanks, from the very depths of our hearts. And, we also give to You our highest, most joyful, exuberant praise and worship, with the greatest of honor, unto You and Your wonderful, matchless, marvelously and gloriously filled Name, which of course, is above every name. (1 Chronicles 29:13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There is not ever a time, occasion, situation or circumstance, whereby, we, the people of Papa God, should not always be found giving all thanks, praise, honor and glory unto The King Eternal—The Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is our lavishly loving and kind, gracious and most merciful Papa God, our Redeemer and rescuing Savior! And, not just occasionally, now and then, but at all times and on all occasions, let your thanks, praise, honor, glory and worship, of The LORD, be heard, seen and known, not only by Him, but everyone! Let your worship roar! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/03- “Together, Let Us Worship The Solid Rock Of Our Salvation!” (Psalms 95:1-2)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/03- “Together, Let Us Worship The Solid Rock Of Our Salvation!” (Psalms 95:1-2)
Premise Question: What is the critically most important key, being an absolute necessity, and then, what are some of the other significant keys that would be extremely helpful for us to accept and understand, in regards to our praise and worship of The LORD—The Solid Rock of our salvation?
“Come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him.” (Psalms 95:1-2 NLT)
Let us, The Company of The Redeemed, all come together as one, with great delight and celebration, singing joyful exultations unto The King Eternal—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! Let us all, together in unison, with one voice, exclaim with exuberant expressions of worship and praise, that are literally expressed, being uttered at the top of our lungs and with all our might, unto our Great Protector—The Almighty Solid Rock; our Redeemer and Savior who rescues us from certain death and destruction. Let us all, together as one, with boldness, confidently approach the throne of grace and mercy of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty; entering into His glorious presence with hearts overflowing, full of gratitude and thanksgiving, for all His benefits and gracious favor given and shown us. Let us do this, by extolling His Excellency, with wonderfully inspired spiritual songs, psalms of praise, hymns and music of every ilk, kind, style, tradition and culture. (Psalms 95:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The absolutely necessary, being the critically most important key for us as members of The Company of The Redeemed, who are the dearly beloved and most cherished children of The Most High, is to come together as one, into complete and full agreement and unity, on this one vital principle and truth: That Jesus Christ is The King Eternal, The Rock of our eternal salvation, The LORD of all! And everyone who calls upon The Name of The LORD, shall be saved! That is where we should and must begin!
Then, after we’ve come together as one, it is important for us to celebrate and joyfully accept and embrace one another, in the various and sundry, different types, forms, functions and expressions of praise and worship.
One expression of praise and worship may be more acceptable or preferred, over another, by different segments or groups within the whole of the body and congregation of The Company of The Redeemed. But they all should be joyfully accepted, recognized and celebrated, as all of them have as their focus, or at least should have, the wonderful expressions of laudations, exultations, exaltation and thanksgivings being offered up to The LORD; all coming and emanating from hearts that are full of gratitude, uttered with mouths that are filled with rejoicing and boisterous celebration, singing, shouting, hands raised or clapping, feet jumping, stomping or dancing, all for the express purpose of honoring, glorifying, praising and worshiping The One True and Living Eternal Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—Jesus Christ—The LORD and King of all, who is, was and shall ever be, The Solid Rock of our salvation! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/24- “Its A Brand New Day, Therefore, It’s A Great Time To Sing About You, O LORD!” (Psalms 59:16)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/24- “Its A Brand New Day, Therefore, It’s A Great Time To Sing About You, O LORD!” (Psalms 59:16)
Premise Question: What day is it, what time is it, what are we to do about it and where are we to go?
“But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress.” (Psalms 59:16 NLT)
But as for me, I will choose to begin each new day by rising up and singing a song, about Your marvelously strong and all powerful matchless strength. I will choose to rejoice, with celebratory worship and praise, by singing out, at the top of my lungs, using all of my breath, letting everyone, within earshot, know of Your incomparable, always constant, never failing, immeasurable love. For You, O LORD GOD Almighty, are my place of refuge, the tower of strength, that I run into for shelter and cover, my place of safety and aid, and my escape from all that is troubling, harmful, harassing and dangerous. You, O LORD, are my sanctuary of peace, my eternal resting place and my all sufficient provision for all of my needs. (Psalms 59:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: I don’t know about anyone else, and therefore, I won’t speak for anyone else. But, this one thing I do absolutely know for sure! Each and everyday of my existence, I know what day and time it is, and I do know what I’ve decided to do about it and where and what direction I’m headed and going towards!
I accept and rejoice that each and every day is a brand new day, given to me by The LORD, that I have the privilege, honor and blessed opportunity to say: This is the day that The LORD has made! Therefore, I will rejoice and be very glad in it! I will choose to sing of the mercies of The LORD everyday! I will sing about His marvelous works and how His unfailing love endures forever and is extended to all generations everyday! I will sing everyday about how He is my safe hiding place, the place that I always run into when I’m in trouble or distressed, in desperate need of His comfort and peace, His protection, aid and relief and my strong shelter during life’s tumult and storms.
What day is it? What time is it and what should we do about it? It’s a brand new day, and therefore, it’s a great day to sing, shout and proclaim to everyone, including declaring it to ourselves, that The LORD is good and greatly to be praised and worshipped, with songs of thanksgiving and heartfelt gratitude! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/28- “Give All Praise, All Glory, All Thanks And All Worship, Unto The King Eternal!” (Psalms 100:4-5)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/28- “Give All Praise, All Glory, All Thanks And All Worship, Unto The King Eternal!” (Psalms 100:4-5)
Premise Question: What must one do, in order to secure seeing and fully experiencing the unfailing love and faithfulness, the wonderful presence and benevolent goodness of The LORD, who is The King Eternal—ad infinitum, without end or limits?
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.”
(Psalms 100:4-5 NLT)
No one is ever allowed to enter into the presence of The LORD GOD Almighty except, by and through the gate, (the door) which Papa God has offered to and provided for all of humankind to enter into, namely, The Name of The LORD! Therefore, when one enters through this gate, it should be with a heart full of thanksgiving and gratitude. And, once one is inside, in the midst of Papa God’s Kingdom, there in The courts of The King Eternal, exuberant, boisterous and outrageous praise and worship should be continually offered up to Him; with many expressions of thanks being declared, along with multiple proclamations of exulted praise that’s offered up unto The Name that is above every other name. For The Name of The LORD GOD Almighty is full of gracious benevolence and His unfailing, as well as undying love for all of us, shall endure throughout and even beyond every generation; faithfully, forever and ever, without end. (Psalms 100:4-5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The entire one-hundredth Psalm gives us a succinct and most beautiful picture of what The LORD requires and desires for us to do, in order to fully secure, that we will see and experience His unfailing love and great faithfulness, as well as, being able to enter into His glorious wonderful presence and be the blessed recipient of His benevolent goodness, ad infinitum, without end or limits.
Here it is: Shout for joy, unto The LORD! Worship The LORD, with a glad and free heart!
Always come before Him, with joyful singing, that emanates from a heart full of gratitude and thanksgiving!
Be ever vigilant to continually acknowledge The LORD as being The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!
Make it your daily practice and sincere activity to enter into the entrance of His presence with thanksgiving, and then, go further and deeper into His very courts, praising Him, giving thanks to Him, exalting and extolling His Name above all else; because The LORD is good, and His benevolent mercy and grace extends and endures, ad infinitum, without end or limits, throughout all generations. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/28- “Only The Word Of The LORD Is Faithful, Right And Forever Rings True!” (Psalms 33:3-5)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/28- “Only The Word Of The LORD Is Faithful, Right And Forever Rings True!” (Psalms 33:3-5)
Premise Question: How significantly important is it for Papa God’s children, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, to deliberately, with diligence and a determined dogged devotion, abandon themselves completely to Him, by giving Him all honor, glory, praise and worship that’s due His Name; as well as, accepting and fully trusting His Word as being the only faithful and true, right and exact, Word of The LORD?
“Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does. He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the LORD fills the earth.” (Psalms 33:3-5 NLT)
Allow for a new song to form upon your lips and come out of your mouth, one that flows from the innermost part of your heart. Sing it out, with complete abandonment, to The LORD. Increase and develop, through knowledge and with deliberate practice, your aptitude for playing instruments skillfully and with great excellence. Shout joyous praise to Him, with loud, boisterous and exuberant exultations; lifting your voice to Him and giving Him all that’s within you, holding nothing back in reserve. For there is only One Word that is genuine, authentic and exact, faithful and true, and that shall last forever! It is The Word of The LORD; trustworthy, always reliable, ever dependable, as He, Papa God, is ever faithful, and consistently constant, to keep all of His promises in everything that He ever says and does. The LORD is greatly pleased when His people live righteously, sharing His goodness and acting justly before all of humankind, according to His principles and precepts in His Holy Scriptures. The whole earth is filled to its utmost capacity with His inexhaustible, profoundly tender and compassionate, unfailing and deeply affectionate, everlasting love. (Psalm 33:3-5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There is nothing more significant or important, than for each and every individual child of Papa God, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, to completely abandon themselves to Him in worship, praise and faithful service!
When we choose to honor The LORD, first and foremost, by placing Him above and putting Him before all others and everything else in life, our lives will become enriched, strengthened, renewed and refreshed, as He, The LORD, will faithfully order each and every day of our lives; putting us at peace, filling us with His joy, through the power and personal presence of His Holy Spirit in our personal individual lives, by leading, guiding, providing, sustaining and comforting us, no matter what we may encounter or have to go through in this life.
Remember, and be greatly encouraged this day, by the absolute truth that’s clearly delineated and shown in Papa God’s Holy Scriptures: His Word is faithful and always rings true and exact! His Word always proves true and has the ring of truth, as it always holds true, fully supported by His resounding character and truth of His Everlasting Word!
We, therefore, can always count on Him and His ever reliable promises and His unfailing love to do all that He says it will do and be. For His enduring love, goodness, gracious favor, mercy and justice is pouring down from His heavenly abode, into and upon all of His children, filling and covering the whole earth! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/17- “Listen Up Soul, I’m Talking To You!” (Psalm 103:1-2)
Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, being an absolute necessity, from time to time, to have a serious sit down conversation with ourselves?
“Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (Psalms 103:1-2 NLT)
Listen up, I’m talking to you, the seat of all my emotions, feelings and thoughts, my very soul…with a grateful and most affectionate heart, praise and worship The LORD GOD Almighty; I command you, at the very core and essence of my existence, the most intimate part of my being, within the within, to worship and venerate His Holy Name, which is the only name that is entitled and worthy of such honor. And another thing! ‘You still talking to me?’ Yes, my soul, so pay close attention; praise and worship The LORD with your whole being, and never fail or neglect to recount and remember every one of His great and helpful advantageous benefits He continually blesses and provides us, as our Healer, our Rock, our Shelter, our Comforter, providing abundantly for all of our daily needs. (Psalm 103:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: An absolute must for all of us, from time to time, is to have a serious sit down introspective, reflective, meditative and contemplative direct conversation with ourselves—our soul. We should, with diligence, do this, in order to get ahold of ourselves, so as to keep ourselves straightened out, making sure we that we don’t stray, but continue to stay on the straight and narrow way, the path that leads us to everlasting joy, peace and an abundantly flourishing life, in this life, and in the life to come!
King David gives us a wonderful picture, a great example of the importance of having a direct conversation with ourselves, by telling his own self to get in line with The LORD’S Word and purpose for his life; which is to worship and praise The LORD with everything that is within us and to never forget to recount the long list of good things that The LORD has done for us, by ever thanking and praising Him!
Here is the huge list of just what The LORD has done for us. Check it out for yourself, as it immediately follows verse 2 of Psalms 103: The LORD forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, fills, renews, gives, reveals, removes, loves.
I encourage you to carefully read, consider and then meditate upon the entire 103rd Psalm, in order to get the whole picture of what The LORD has done, is doing and will do for all those who believe and are His very own beloved children. Also look at Psalms 42:5,11 and 43:5, as well as, the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:4, and the incredibly encouraging words of Jesus in The Gospel of John 14:1,27.
Listen up soul! Yes, I’m talking to you! Pay close attention to what I’m telling you! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/21- “Papa God Carries Us In His Everlasting Arms!” (Psalms 68:19)
Premise Question: Does Papa God save us and carry us in His arms because we praise Him or does He do it because He loves us; and, do we praise Papa God because He loves, saves and carries us or is it because of who He is?
Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. (Psalms 68:19 NLT)
All praise, honor and glory belong to The One True Sovereign LORD—Papa God, maker of Heaven and earth! We, Your beloved and unique creation, abandon ourselves in worship to You, our precious Savior, Messiah and King; For it is You, O LORD, who faithfully carries all of our heavy burdens for us. Each and every moment of everyday, You are rescuing Your very own, which we are, and forever will be. (Psalm 68:19 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We all should be extremely grateful that Papa God loves us, saves us and then carries us through each and every day of our lives, in His everlasting arms. But, more so, we ought to praise, worship, exalt and adore Him for who He is.
For all glory, honor, veneration and praise belong entirely to Him and Him alone, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is The Creator, Redeemer, Savior, and The One who comforts, heals and restores His unique creation back to Himself, to an honorable, right, holy and fulfilling relationship; in order that they may enjoy sweet fellowship, the fullness of joy, perfect peace and tranquility, along with an abundant life to be fully experienced now and throughout all of eternity!
Oh, and by the way, if you were unable to get the jest of the answer to the question of whether or not Papa God carries us because we praise Him or because He loves us? Well, I leave you with just one verse, although, there are numerous ones to choose from: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NLT) Blessings…
