SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 0/11/15- “You Can Count On Him!” (Psalm 130:5)

Premise Question: We can, with certitude, count on Papa God; but, can Papa God count on us to faithfully get His message of redeeming love and reconciliation, effectively, out to the whole world?

I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. (‭Psalms‬ ‭130‬:‭5‬ NLT)

My expectation of hopefulness is based entirely upon my resolute reliance on The LORD; therefore, yes, I am depending solely and completely on Him, for I have, without hesitation, reservation or any reticence or restraint, “hitched my wagon,” (my life) with all of my hopes, dreams and desires, to The LORD and His declared desires and intentions, written down, in His Holy Writ.
(Psalm 130:5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes we can, absolutely count on The LORD to be there for us, no matter what the situation or circumstance demands or requires; but the answer to the first part of the Premise Question, begs a response to the second part of the question within the question, which is: Can He, Papa God, count on us, by relying on us, to get His message out to everyone everywhere? In effect, will we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, “let the whole world know” of His incomparable love, His glorious grace, magnanimous mercy and consoling compassion, through our own expressions of sharing His love, showing it through acts of kindness and considerate care and that, with great compassion? Yes we can and will, with diligence and great faithfulness, by devoting ourselves to deliberately spreading the hope that we have, to everyone everywhere. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/26/15- “Little With Fear VS Abundance With Trouble” (Proverbs 15:16)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/26/15- “Little With Fear VS Abundance With Trouble!” (Proverbs 15:16)

Premise Question: Is this concept, found in Papa God’s Holy Wisdom Book, (that we are better off having a meager existence with a healthy reverential awe for The LORD, rather than, to possess an unusually large fortune that’s accompanied by inner strife and unrest) truly something that we, as believers, accept, believe and practice?

Better to have little, with fear for the LORD, than to have great treasure and inner turmoil. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭16‬ NLT)

Even though it may seem insane, or a nonsensical concept to accept, believe or practice, it is much more preferable, being full of superior wisdom, to live and have a meager existence, with a healthy reverential awe for The LORD, rather than, an unusually large, extravagant fortune, accompanied by internal turbulence, tumult and great unrest. (Proverbs 15:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Perhaps the answer to this question can be addressed with: It all depends on the perspective that you’re coming from and the experience you’ve had, in life! For, if on the one hand, you’ve always been blessed with an abundance of wealth and you’ve never had the opportunity to know what it’s like to live on a meager existence, it is incongruent to you, and therefore, you may not be able to relate. While, on the other hand, if you’ve always been challenged to live on a sparse amount, having never experienced what it’s like to live with an over abundance of riches, then you may have a difficult time in accepting the concept, as well, but just from a completely different perspective. So, what source should and can we believe, as being true and, who and where do we go for the definitive, being superior, answer? Let’s look at Paul The Apostle: He said that he had lived in both scenarios and had come to understand that the secret was to learn to be content, no matter what the scenario. (Philippians 4:11-12) Paul also tells Timothy that true godliness, with contentment, is itself great wealth. Because after all, in actuality, we were born with nothing and there’s not anything we’ll be able to take with us when we leave this world. So, we ought to be content if we have enough to eat and clothes to wear. Paul goes on to say to Timothy, that those who desire to become rich, may open themselves up to all kinds of tempting snares and thus, could be subject to falling for them, with devastating repercussions. He continues with, the love of money, not money itself, but the inordinate affection of money, is the “tap root” of all kinds of nefarious activities and one with that root in their life, could end up with a boatload of regrets and plenty of sorrows! (1 Timothy 6:6-10) Now we could continue this discussion, but for the sake of space and time, let me leave you with a couple other scrips to consider: (Mark 4:19, Matthew 6:20, Luke 12:34). Finally, no matter what scenario we may be experiencing, in life, let’s believe, accept, receive and put into practice, the wise counsel of The LORD, and experience true wealth, which is, godliness, with contentment. Blessings…

The Benefits Of Storms, In Our Lives: STRUGGLES, TRIALS, OBSTACLES, REJECTION, MISERY, SUFFERING (Psalm 23)

Posted on Updated on

The Benefits of STORMS in our lives:STRUGGLES, TRIALS, OBSTACLES, REJECTION, MISERY, SUFFERING! (Psalm 23)

Jonah 1: God uses a STORM, ( circumstances) to get Jonah to consider doing what He, God wanted him to do, in order to fulfill God’s will for his life! God hid Jonah in the belly of a fish for three days and three nights so that he could be all alone without any distractions or interruptions, to contemplate life and his decisions and choices…God, in a since, had a captive audience that finally was willing to listen and obey the voice of The Lord!

This story of the STORM in Jonah’s life, somewhat, reminds me of a STORM I once encountered way back in the mid 1970’s, if I am remembering correctly it was the summer of 1977. At the time, I was a youth pastor, children’s pastor, and had recently launched a concert ministry called, “Sonshine Concerts” and was working a full time summer job at Peterbilt motors, in Newark, CA. It was a whirlwind schedule with little time for anything but activities and work! Needless too say, I was neglecting my personal time with The Lord, and had replaced it with work and the work of the ministry! It should be quite obvious that staying busy, even if it is the work of The Lord, is not necessarily doing the will of The Lord! I believe, too many of us have substituted a true and real relationship with The Lord, with being busy for The Lord, even justifying our actions and behavior with the worn out excuse of “I just don’t have time to spend on my personal relationship, with The Lord, and besides, He’ll understand”. It is true that He does understand, but He doesn’t have to agree with you! If we don’t have the time to spend with The Lord in intimate personal fellowship, in developing a right and holy relationship,with Him, then we are too busy! It’s time to re-prioritize our life and schedule, making room and time for the manifest intimacy of a right relationship with The Lord, if not, then He might just do it for you! The Lord looks at the heart and if He sees that you have just gone haywire, but knows that you truly down deep want to do His Will, He loves you enough to make sure you will have an opportunity to do His will. He will utilize an event (STORM) situation or circumstance in order to get you alone so that He can convey His thoughts and will for your life, at that time, in order to get you on the right track and moving the right direction! This is what happened to me, with regards to being too busy, in the summer of 1977!

I was working in a grinding booth with two other young men. The booth was elevated five feet above the floor of the factory, with heavy plastic panels draped down all the way around it. The plastic panels were very dirty and covered with debris from all the material that was used to grind, as well as the wax that was used to help in keeping that which was being ground down, (metal steps, doors, brackets for the gas tanks, etc.) from getting too hot. My job was to work on a huge grinder with a very large sandpaper belt grinder. I usually did the steps and the brackets while the other two young men did the doors with smaller hand held grinders. There were times when we were inundated with work and then there were times when we would go for long stretches without any work, it was not ever steady work, and we were not allowed to leave the booth because at anytime there may be a piece that needed to be cleaned up and ground before it was needed back on the assembly line almost immediately. There was little toleration for stopping the line while they waited for a part from the grinding booth! So, to deal with the down time, my two young friends would devise games that they could play, while waiting for the next project to come into the booth. One of their favorites was “Home Run Derby” in the booth! They fashioned a bat from a piece of 2×4 and formed a ball out of the wax used to cool during the grinding process. It was during those times that I would go to a corner of the booth and stand on the edge looking out for any work that may be headed our way. Ok, so I was also the un-official lookout, as well! I don’t really know why on this particular occasion I had positioned myself where I did, but it was definitely not the safest place to be, as you’ll soon understand and realize why. First one to bat was the right handed batter. He struck out on three wax ball pitches. Next up was the left-hander. He did not strike out, but was hitting the wax ball all over the booth. I don’t know if his hands got sweaty or just tired, but he took an especially big swing and missed the wax ball completely, a swing and a miss! Just before he took that mighty swing, I had moved behind him to get a better vantage point to see if anyone was coming towards the booth. Someone was, so I turned to tell them and it was at that very moment that the bat came out of the lefty’s hands and smashed me, with full force of his mighty swing and a miss, directly on my mouth! “Whack!” I immediately was knocked out and fell backwards off of the platform on to the concrete floor five feet below! I was told later that my arms went down to my sides an I took a “Nestea ice tea plunge” into the concrete head first! The young men were stunned. They told me later, that when my head hit the floor it sounded like a watermelon splitting! What I experienced at that moment was the sense of falling back on to a huge cushion made of the softest down imaginable. I remember hearing the voice of the safety officer having a conversation with the company’s nurse. They were discussing my vitals. The safety officer was checking for a pulse and the nurse was checking my blood pressure . The safety officer said to the nurse, “I don’t have a pulse” the nurse said in response, “I only have one number for the blood pressure, it’s 20!” Then I heard, “we’re loosing him!” The very next thing I remember was being enveloped by overwhelming waves of joy and peace washing over me while completely surrounded and immersed in the most wonderful, incredibly beautiful light! It literally took my breath away, to the point of not being able to breathe. The light was so bright that it was difficult to see anything but the brilliance of the light surrounding me. It was then that my eyes began to focus and adjust to the light, that I was able to see my surroundings! I cannot describe adequately with words what I saw, but to say, that it was absolute serenity with the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen anywhere or anytime here in this existence! I was standing in the midst of a field that was covered with a myriad of different kinds of plants and trees, all exemplified by beauty and grace. I began to realize and ponder…”Wow, I can’t believe it, this is it, I’m really going to be in the presence of The Lord, I’m shocked, I thought I had so much more time with so much more to do and experience. I still hadn’t had any children, was still pretty much a newlywed, with so much in life to look forward to, not to mention all the ministry I was involved in and one day hoped to accomplish and do!” As I was pondering, I heard and felt, at the same time, a voice penetrating my mind, heart, and every part of my being. It was strong, reassuring, comforting, soothing and quite pleasant, all at the same time. I understood it to be the very voice of The Lord. He conveyed to me that I had become too busy to hear His voice and therefore, He needed to get me all alone, without any distraction or hindrances, so that He could speak to me and I would listen. Listen, I did! During this encounter, I was never at anytime afraid or apprehensive. The Lord indeed did speak to me about things that would happen in my life and what He intended for me to do, with regards to ministry. I didn’t remember a lot of it, as I believe was His intention, but He did show me many faces of those who would be impacted by Him, because of the ministry He had called me to do. It was quite overwhelming and extremely exilerating and exciting! I do well remember though, The Lord giving me the opportunity to choose whether or not to stay with Him or go back! He really does give us free will in letting us determine our destiny! I also remember asking The Lord what He would want me to do, stay or go back? Without even hearing His response, I felt a strong sense and urge that I was to do His will, which was to go back and finish the work I had been given to do! As soon as I concurred with His will for my life, I was seemingly hovering above a crowd of people that were all focused and looking intently at something on the floor in the midst of them. I moved towards them and peered through the crowd to see what they were all gazing and murmuring about. What I saw, was myself lying on the floor looking very peaceful and serene, maybe taking a little snooze while on the job. It was an unreal experience, to say the least. My two young co-workers were having a frantic conversation about what they should do, they were distraught and stricken with fear! Then, I heard the lefty say these words; “I don’t know what we should or can do, but I know what Don would do!” Then I heard righty say, “what’s that!” Lefty…”He’d pray right now!” Righty…”we don’t know how to pray!” Lefty…”yes we do, remember, Don said praying to God was just like talking to someone when you are having a conversation!” Righty…”yeah, that’s right, let’s pray!” Righty and Lefty…”dear Lord please help Don and don’t let him die, amen!” As they said amen, I opened my eyes and looked up and saw both Righty and Lefty with there eyes closed and tears running down their faces. The safety officer shouted, “I’ve got a pulse!” The nurse exclaimed, “his blood pressure is returning to normal!” I declared my thanks to everyone for their help and looked at Righty and Lefty and thanked them for their prayer of faith! They both had astonished and happy expressions upon their faces, as well as, much relief! I went for a ride to the hospital in an ambulance, was thoroughly checked out with a battery of tests, then pronounced completely fit and good to go, except for the busted lip and loose teeth in my mouth. My head, which hit a concrete floor, from a five foot free-fall backwards, didn’t have a scratch, knot, or contusion of any kind! Now that was a miracle in it self! I really did fall on to a cushion of incredibly soft heavenly goose down!

I went back to work the next day with fat lips and loose teeth, which I had to have crowns put on, eventually. Righty and Lefty were never the same, after that and were more open than ever to the things of The Lord! I was able to share my story on a number of occasions with great results of people being encouraged and responding to The Lord in positive ways. I also re-prioritized my life and focused more on my personal relationship with The Lord, with less activity and more of Him. Oh, and by the way, there were a lot less games played after that, with a lot more talks about life and God.

I, to this day, thank God for His grace and mercy shown to me so many times and in so many ways in my life! Like Jonah, The Lord placed me alone, in a corner, in life, whereby, I too could hear His voice, listen, then obey His will for my life, at that time. His love truly endures forever!

Please don’t get too busy and not take the time needed and absolutely necessary to build and be in right relationship with The Lord! Make room for Him, in your life and don’t limit Him and what He wants to do in and with your life! Desire, above all else, to do His will!(Ps. 40:8) And remember, if STORMS come into your life, they may be sent from The Lord for your benefit and that, because He loves you and wants to have a personal intimate relationship with you!

Finally this; with obedience comes blessings and benefits, with disobedience comes curses and consequences! I know, I’ve experienced them both! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/06/15- “Papa God, Already Knows!” (Luke 12:29-31)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/06/15- “Papa God, Already Knows!” (Luke 12:29-31)

Premise Question: Why would we, as practicing believers, ever allow the daily needs of life, to distract, dominate or consume us, given Papa God’s absolute promise of provision, for everything we have need of, delivered to us by none other than His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ Himself?

“And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭29-31‬ NLT)

Stop allowing the cares of this life, as it pertains to, what kind of or whether or not you’ll have enough food and nourishment to sustain you, as well as, being troubled and bothered by what kind of or whether or not you’ll imbibe enough libation, in order to stay refreshed. Refuse to be tormented, vexed or bossed around, by these things! Don’t ever allow them to cause mental anguish, consuming your thoughts, by domineering and dictating your behavior, as a practicing believer. Otherwise, you are acting just like every other person, in this world, that is a nonbeliever, a scoffer, who are always subject to being dominated by such things, because of their unregenerate mind; conversely though, you don’t have any reason, as a practicing believer, to act in the same manner, as you have Papa God’s absolute promise of provision and the known fact that He is cognizant, being fully aware, of all of the essentials needed for living this life. So, all you really need to do, is to make it your life’s quest, your aim, to seek Papa God’s Kingdom, first and foremost, in your life and then He will make provision to you the totality of all that you will ever have need of, in order to sustain you, in this life. (Luke 12:29-31 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why? Because if you are constantly, as a practicing believer, consumed and filled with dread, always living in a state of angst, because of your perceived situation and circumstances; then you are not thinking or behaving like a practicing believer, but conversely, you are actually thinking and acting just like any other non-believer does or would, every else in the world! So, choose to accept the fact, as reality, that Papa God already knows, not only what you have need of, even before you need it, but also, when you’ll need it; therefore, focus on seeking His Kingdom and Righteousness to be established in your life, first and foremost, and leave the rest to Him. And then and only then, you shall have everything that you have need of, according to Papa God’s absolutely reliable promise, that it will be provided to you, by Him, when He knows that you are in need of it, no matter what it is, because He already knows! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/04/15- “Stop The Anxious Thoughts, That Fills You With Angst, Start The Hopeful Prayers, That Fills You With Peace!” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/04/15- “Stop The Anxious Thoughts, That Fills You With Angst, Start The Hopeful Prayers, That Fills You With Peace!” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Premise Question: Truly, is there anything at all, in our lives as believers, that we should be overwhelmingly concerned, anxious or worried about; and, are we, as believers, truly to pray about everything, in our lives?

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭6-7‬ NLT)

Stop! Immediately cease and desist, from any and all perplexing apprehensions, worrisome vexations and woe. Start! Replacing it with a much more preferable, with a much better outcome and result, by choosing to fervently pray to Papa God; preparing petitions,of essentials, required for life and ministry, offering them up to Him, with faith and a heart full of gratitude and thanksgiving, for all that He has done for you and for the whole of humankind. Then! You shall immediately begin to have a serene sense of well being, beyond all human comprehension, within the within of your innermost being, as a tranquil, harmonious peace will wash over you, surrounding and settling you, in both your heart and mind, with your life always being defended, by our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, The One in Whom we all have life. (Philippians 4:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Answer to the first part of the above Premise Question is: “Nope!” For there isn’t anything, in this world, meaning whatever, no matter what, in any degree or to any extent or circumstance, that we’ve gone through or may yet experience, whereby, Papa God doesn’t have the ability to give us His incomparable and incomprehensible peace, before, during and after any kind of situation or ordeal that we may happen to encounter in this life, if, we will put a stop to all our distressful, apprehensive concerns and fears, by choosing to call out to Papa God, in heartfelt prayer. Answer to the second part of the above Premise Question is: “Yep!” Without exception! Papa God is interested in every part and area of our lives. He desires that we would be at peace, deep within ourselves, settled and completely stable, within the within of our innermost being. This, so we are well equipped and ready to face, as well as, overcome any and all obstacles and challenges that we may encounter during this life. We shall also be at the ready to help others who’ve lost their way or who may be struggling; encouraging them to seek Papa God’s love, mercy and grace and therefore, act on His behalf, as His instrument of refreshing, renewing and wonderful reconciliation. Stop the anxious thoughts, that fills you with angst, believers and choose to start the hopeful prayers, that will fill you with Papa God’s peace! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/03/15- “We Are Surrounded!” (Psalms 5:11-12)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/03/15- “We Are Surrounded!” (Psalms 5:11-12)

Premise Question: Why is it so significantly important, that all who would choose to take refuge and solace in Papa God, are allowed and greatly encouraged, to continually rejoice and celebrate, with joyful songs of exultation and praise?

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. For you bless the godly, O LORD; you surround them with your shield of love. (‭Psalms‬ ‭5‬:‭11-12‬ NLT)

Papa God, allow all who run to You, for relief and comfort, seeking a secure and safe hiding place to take shelter in; to always be glad, taking great delight in celebratory exultations of joyful praise and worship, with the ability to do this, in Your presence, for all of eternity. Provide a protective covering above all those who love, honor and revere Your Holy Name; one that stretches beyond their capacity to see or comprehend, filling them to overflowing with Your fully satisfying and gratifying joy. For You, Papa God, always bless, with Your kind mercy and generous favor, all those who live according to Your righteous precepts, surrounding them, with Your all encompassing, unfailing, gracious love and goodwill. (Psalm 5:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is significantly important to recognize how safe and secure we are in Papa God’s presence, and also realize that He has given us the honor and privilege, with ability, to worship and praise Him throughout all eternity, without end. So then, it’s with a heart full of great gratitude and thoughtful thankfulness, that we all, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should continually give Papa God all the praise honor and glory, that’s due Him. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/01/15- “The LORD Is My Help, Therefore, I Will Be Satisfied And Won’t Fear Others!” (Hebrews 13:5-6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/01/15- “The LORD Is My Help; Therefore, I Shall Be Satisfied And Won’t Fear Others!” (Hebrews 13:5-6)

Premise Question: Is there someone, anyone, in this life, that we should fear, feeling or thinking, within ourselves, that they somehow have the power or ability to influence, circumvent or frustrate, short circuit, or even ultimately thwart and prevent Papa God’s divine will; His planned purpose and intended desire, for our life and ministry, from ever happening, while here on this earth?

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” (‭Hebrews‬ ‭13‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

Don’t ever allow money or lack thereof, to control you in any way or to be the determining factor in what you do for The LORD and His Kingdom. Nor are you to ever let it rule your life, in always wanting and needing more of it or what it can buy. Always choose to be satisfied and gratified, completely content with what you do have and then, trust The LORD to make provision for what you need, that you don’t have, for this life and ministry. For Papa God has clearly spoken to us, “I will not ever fall short or be deficient, in fulfilling My purpose and will for you. And, I shall also never leave you behind, by forsaking and giving up on you!” That is why, we can declare, being fully confident and assured, that The LORD is my helper, in all things and at all times; therefore, there will not ever be anyone nor anything that shall cause me to be paralyzed with debilitating fear. With all that said, what really is there that anyone can do to me, that Papa God won’t take care of completely? Nothing! (Hebrews 13:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Because it is Papa God Himself, Who tells us He will not leave or forsake us, we are fully assured, that He, The LORD is our helper and therefore, we have nothing and no one to fear! Now, everything is Papa God filtered. So, it may appear to us, at times, that perhaps there are some who may have the ability to exert or have undo influence over the affairs of our lives, but this is not the real case or truth, for it may be that The LORD is allowing something to occur, what seems to be evidence that proves the case, when in fact, it is actually being put to use, by Papa God, as training in righteousness, so that, we will be fully equipped and completely prepared, lacking in nothing, for the divine purpose, work and ministry that The LORD has pre-determined and called us to do, while here on this earth. And all this, so that, The LORD will be glorified, in all that we do! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/31/15- “Put Me To The Test, I, The LORD, Dare You To Try Me!” (Malachi 3:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/31/15- “Put Me To The Test, I, The LORD, Dare You To Try Me!” (Malachi 3:10)

Premise Question: Is not returning, by bringing and giving it back into the “storehouse,” (the place where you receive spiritual nourishing and sustenance) the whole tithe, which is a full ten percent, of the income from our labor, harvest, business endeavors, investments, and everything else, that The LORD has entrusted and blessed us with, really going to be an issue or result in being a problem for us?

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! (‭Malachi‬ ‭3‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Return to Me the full amount of the tithe, ten percent, by bringing it with you when you come to The House of The LORD, the place where you expect to receive spiritual nourishing and refreshing. When, and only when, you choose to do this, will I, The LORD, open up the spigot of blessings in Heaven, that will release a mighty flow of My pleasure, presence and provision, that shall fill you to overflowing, flooding your life to the point of being overwhelmed with an overabundance of not only what you have need of, but way beyond what you’ll ever have need of. Now, go ahead and do it! I dare you to challenge Me in this! (Malachi 3:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When returning a portion of our income, from various sources, back to the governing authorities, whether it be nation, state, county or local city or principality, we are coerced and compelled by laws, whether we are in agreement or not, with said laws, for it’s not optional, and therefore, if we aren’t in compliance, well, there is a powerful force that comes to bear, exerting pressure upon us, to either cause us to comply with or be penalized for not being in full compliance. Papa God’s law is different in how it is implemented, into our lives, for He refuses to coerce or penalize us, but clearly encourages and challenges us to follow His law, and this, for our own ultimate benefit. Now, if we choose not to be in compliance with His wonderful law, then we won’t receive the benefits and blessings that come with compliance with His law and there will be consequences, not that He brings to bear in our lives, but what the laws of nature will bring to bear, and what we bring upon ourselves, as a result of not complying with His gracious law. Many of us may have been faced with the real life dilemma of accepting the premise, that we can’t afford to return the full title back, the full ten percent, to The LORD, by bringing it into the storehouse! If that is the case, then, the real life situation and issue is, we can’t afford NOT to return it back to The LORD, for we are in great and desperate need to have the resulting blessings of Papa God, by complying, in our lives! So, yes, it could pose a problem, in our lives, if we are not complying with Papa God’s Law; therefore, make room for Him to operate in your life and don’t ever limit Him and what He desires to do in your life, by not complying. Blessings…
