SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 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)PDCP
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- 11/23- “Impossible To Describe, For It Is Beyond Any Human Words One Can Express!”(2 Corinthians 9:15)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/23- “Impossible To Describe, For It Is Beyond Any Human Words One Can Express!”(2 Corinthians 9:15)
Premise Question: Has there ever been, is there now or will there ever be a more incredibly glorious and too wonderful for words, gracious gift given to humankind, than The One given to us, by Papa God, His Only Begotten Son—Jesus Christ?
“Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!” (2 Corinthians 9:15 NLT)
All thanks, with hearts full of overflowing gratitude, be given and exuberantly expressed, to Papa God, The Only One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, for His most precious and invaluable gift of immeasurable grace and favor; which is too extraordinary to even try and describe with mere words, and which, has now been made available, with complete access, to anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere. (2 Corinthians 9:15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: This amazing gift, from The LORD, cannot be earned, for there is no amount of good deeds or behavior that will be sufficient to earn it, nor can it be bought or purchased with gold, silver or any kind of money or tender, for no amount will ever be able to cover the cost of this incredible, one of a kind, gracious gift.
It also cannot be inherited or handed down, because of a family or business influential connections.
And finally, it cannot be won by being the winner of a competition, for no amount of training will ever make anyone fast enough or strong enough to win.
But, it can be found in only one place and one person; that’s at the cross, upon which the one person, Papa God’s Only Son—Jesus Christ, willingly laid down His life for all who would accept His love, mercy and grace freely given by Him, for their certain rescue from death and their eternal reward—redemptive salvation.
So, whether or not we are are able to adequately express our gratitude and thankfulness with our words, we ought to make every effort to do so, from the very depths of our hearts and with everything that is within us.
Why, because, no there hasn’t been, is not now nor will there ever be a more incredibly glorious or wonderfully gracious gift given to humankind, than The One provided by Papa God, when He gave us His One and Only Son—Jesus Christ! 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: 06/20- “Love That Endures!” (1Chronicles 16:34)
Premise Question: Just what are we, The Company of The Redeemed, to give thanks to The LORD for, and how are we to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to Him?
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
(1 Chronicles 16:34 NLT)
Show and express to The LORD your full gratitude, by offering up to Him, from a thankful heart, true spiritual praise and worship, honoring Him with reverential awe, for He is beneficently virtuous and righteous. His unfailing, undying, eternally enduring, unqualified and unparalleled, being incomparable love and gracious favor for us, which is expressed towards us continually, is permanently established and without measure. (1 Chronicles 16:34 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, should with great rejoicing, gladness and joy, as individuals and also collectively, as those who’ve been redeemed, shall in every way, by utilizing every kind of expression, ought to offer up continually, our deepest and greatest, most heartfelt gratitude of thanks; with our praise and worship of Him, and in our obedient walk and work for Him.
We are to announce and let it be known everywhere, far and wide, and close by, letting everyone in the whole earth know how much Papa God loves humankind and how grateful and thankful we, His people, are for all that The LORD has done, is doing and is yet to do for all of those who will believe and receive Him as LORD.
We, The Company of The Redeemed, praise and worship Him in His Holiness, for He is worthy to be praised, worshipped, honored and glorified! We lift His Name high, because His love, mercy and gracious favor endures throughout every generation, for He is faithful and true to every promise He has spoken in His Everlasting Word!
His goodness is filled with His great comfort, His all surpassing peace and the fullness of His joy, which is our strength!
His love, His mercy, His grace shall endure and shall not ever fail to do what He has sent it to do for His own precious creation!
People of Papa God, give thanks to The LORD, for He is good, He does all things well, His love endures forever and in His time, He makes all things beautiful! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/10- “Deep And Wide!” (Colossians 2:6-7)
Premise Question: Why does the apostle Paul give such an urgent exhortative admonition, with such great significance and importance attached, that we, as followers of The LORD Jesus Christ, should, with sincere diligence, make it our greatest ambition and aim, to continually develop and mature, by growing deeper and ever wider, in our faith and relationship with Him; and, what are the benefits and positive results, that can be directly attributed to having greater depth and width in our faith and relationship with The LORD, when we allow this to transpire and take place in our lives?
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:6-7 NLT)
So then, since you have become a qualified member, in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, by receiving Papa God’s gracious gift, His Son Jesus Christ, as your personal LORD and Savior; it is of great importance, to you personally, in your walk of faith, that you now make it your greatest ambition and aim to be constantly consistent, in diligently chasing after and persistently pursuing Him, above all else. Do this, by allowing Papa God to plant you deep in the chosen ground of His presence, His Word; so that, you will be completely immersed and begin germinating in His Holy Ground, which will cause you to develop a strong root system that will forever anchor you to Him and in Him, thereby, giving you a depth and width that will support, as a sure foundation, the building of faith that shall be built above the ground, which shall be representative of your life and ministry, for all to see, and will bring glory to Papa God. The most obvious and wonderfully amazing result of having a huge dose and impartation of Papa God’s truth deeply entrenched in your life is: your massively fervent, being vigorously active, walk of faith and intimate relationship, with The LORD, that shall produce a veritable deluge of overwhelming expressions of appreciation, gratitude and thankfulness. (Colossians 2:6-7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Anytime a seed is planted in properly prepared ground, it must be planted at the right depth, width and spacing, with consideration given to sunlight, water source and season, and also must be planted in soil that will be conducive to nurturing and protecting the seed, in the growing process, in order to ultimately produce a bountiful harvest.
We are very much like the seed planted in the good ground (soil), for we are buried deep in the soil of The LORD, His precious and completely nurturing Word.
We are continually being fed, watered and taken care of by the Light of The Son and the presence and protection of The Holy Spirit’s loving guidance.
But, we must be willing to grow deeply, down and out, before we ever begin to grow up and out of the soil we are planted in! We must be willing to be patiently hidden, buried deep in Him, before we ever surface and are brought out into the open! And this promotion must be done by The LORD, no self-promotion allowed! So, great benefits and positive results are fully derived, experienced and attributed to this wonderful process of growing and developing, in Papa God’s time, our most precious faith and intimate relationship with The LORD.
The LORD GOD provides us with His comfort and peace, His joy and refreshing, His enduring love and compassion, His mercy and grace, His encouragement, courage and strength, as well as, His lovingkindness and more than enough provision for all of our needs.
When we are truly grounded and pounded, being made strong and thoroughly established in Papa God’s Truth, then we will flourish and produce a bountiful righteous harvest in season, that will cause us to overflow with gratitude and thanksgiving. Blessings…
