SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/20- “A Spiritual Drink In A Dry Land!” (Psalm 63:1)
Premise Question: Where else can a person, who is effected by the common human condition, go or run to but to The LORD; in a land that is scorched and distressed, because it is deprived of and lacks any hunger satisfying or thirst quenching spiritual sustenance and drink?
“O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.” (Psalms 63:1 NLT)
You, O Sovereign LORD, The Almighty Papa God, Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, You are my God, The One who created me to worship, honor and serve You. Therefore, it is with the most serious intention, and divinely inspired purpose, that I am on the ultimate quest to find and discover who You are. I have an insatiable craving, along with an unquenchable thirsting for You and Your Manifest Presence; as my entire being, my spirit, soul and body yearns, aches and is in desperate need of You, in this indifferent, lacking any sustenance or moisture, very dry, cracked and parched land, where drought persists, with no spiritual drink to refresh and renew my whole being—spirit, soul and body. (Psalm 63:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: All of humankind is effected by a common human condition, that of desperately looking to satisfy, and quench a hunger and thirsting deep within their very souls.
Every person experiences this extreme craving of a deep urgent hunger, with an unquenchable thirsting, that is buried deep within the within, of their innermost being.
There are, for humankind, no other viable options or alternatives; for it is only Papa God, The Creator, that can fill the space and void that’s deep within each person, as it was His divine design and purpose that created the cravings, the deep yearning and desire of hungering and thirsting for His Presence, in every person; which when diligently pursued, leads to a hunger satisfying, thirst quenching, life fulfilling, joyful existence, which results in experiencing the very essence of the best that this life has to offer!
Remember, wherever the water flows, there is life! So, ask The LORD for a cool, refreshing and renewing, spiritual food and drink, to satisfy and quench your urgent insatiable hunger and unquenchable thirst, in this scorched, dry and extremely parched land! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/04- “Trusting And Relying On The LORD!” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Premise Question: Can we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have a confident assurance and real expectation, of actually being able to successfully navigate our life, without having the great privilege and honor, the tools and benefits, of the leading, guiding, impactive and direct influence that The LORD’S Word, His Spirit and diligent fervent prayer provides us, which for all of us, is our divine compass, sextant and GPS?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)
Place your faith and complete confidence in, and your utter reliance upon, The LORD—in total abandonment, holding nothing back or kept hidden in the deep recesses of your heart in reserve. Don’t ever find yourself choosing to rely solely upon your own way of thinking; in the way you see and perceive things, in order to get yourself through life. But, always remember to acknowledge The LORD in everything you do or attempt to do in life; surrendering and yielding every part and partial of your life to Him. Then, and only then, will The LORD Himself pilot and guide you through life, on an upright course that will follow the correct path, which will establish a safe and successful arrival at your desired destination at life’s journeys end. (Proverbs 3:5-6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There are a myriad of sources we can choose from to be influenced and guided by in our lives. Some may seem quite logical, extremely viable, good or may even tickle our fancy and appeal to our inclinations or predilection. As The LORD’S Word clearly delineates, though, there is a way and path set before each person that appears to be the best way to go, but when chosen, only leads to death and destruction. (Proverbs 14:12) His Word also tells us, that fools will always think and believe the way they are going and what they are doing, is right, and will therefore, not be open to wise counsel. But again, it only leads to a horrible ending. (Proverbs 12:14)
The LORD gives everyone a choice! The decision and choice we make determines whether we will experience blessings or curses, life or death. (Deuteronomy 11:26, 30:19)
Let us make the wisest and absolutely the most prudent of decisions, by always deliberately choosing to place our total faith and trust, relying only on and in The LORD and His faithful, hope filled, leading, guiding and correct direction, by completely relying on His Word, The Holy Spirit and our fervent prayer; which is our divine compass, sextant and heavenly GPS for successfully navigating this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/23- “The Correct Perception!” (Proverbs 21:2)
Premise Question: Under whose perception and impression, of how you are living and comporting your daily life, are you being influenced by; your own understanding of how you see yourself, The LORD’S perception and examination of you and your heart, or perhaps others impression and how they respond to you, or is it some combination of the three?
People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart. (Proverbs 21:2 NLT)
Even though most of humankind may actually believe that the way they see things and perceive themselves and life in general, is the absolute correct perception, there is another, though, whose perception is perfect, being flawless, without defect; for it is He, The LORD, who carefully scrutinizes, by probing deeply into the intentions and motives of our innermost being, even our hearts. (Proverbs 21:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It’s vitally important to understand the significance of having the correct view and proper perception of ourselves and the world around us. We don’t have the capacity to do this on our own. We must be willing to submit all that we think, perceive and believe that we are comprehending, to The LORD and His Holy Writ first, for His appraisal and stamp of approval. Then, we ought to have others in our lives, individuals who are spiritual, that we allow to speak into our lives; but, we should determine and make sure that those we’ve allowed to have influence over us, by speaking into our lives, that they also are submitted to The LORD and His Holy Writ as well, by having and allowing individuals, who are spiritual, to speak into their lives.
Dear LORD, purify our thoughts, our intentions and the motives of our hearts, so that we will have the correct perception! Search me, O LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/17/15- “I’m All In, With My Whole Heart!” (Psalms 119:10)
Premise Question: What place, position, preeminence and precedence should seeking, serving and worshipping The LORD have, be and take in our lives?
“I have tried hard to find you— don’t let me wander from your commands.”
(Psalms 119:10 NLT)
I, therefore, completely surrender my entire being, not holding anything back or in reserve, but with a deliberate diligence, abandon myself wholeheartedly, to serving and worshiping You alone, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty; so, my dear LORD GOD Almighty, I urgently and with a sincere heart, humbly request that You help me, by keeping me from ever deviating, stumbling or leaving Your righteous path, that You, O LORD, have clearly marked and paved, with Your life giving, sustaining and preserving commandments, for my life. (Psalm 119:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Seeking, serving and worshiping The LORD should never be relegated to something we just poke or pick at, or just have in our lives as an enjoyable hobby or as an activity that we use as a way to socialize. We should and must abandon ourselves completely to Him; His righteous way and His perfect will and His divine purpose for our lives. You’ve heard it said before…”Either The LORD is LORD of all or He’s not LORD at all!” Blessings…
