SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/28- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)
Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the greatly beloved and cherished children of The Most High, to be afraid of or discouraged about?
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
So, because I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has already personally selected you to be my cherished choice servants, do not ever be frightened of anything or anyone, for there is nothing to be afraid of, as I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall always be with you and shall never abandon, leave or forsake you. Therefore, don’t ever allow the things that are happening around you to dissuade, distress, discourage, dismay or terrorize you, for I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am your Protector and Everlasting Redeemer. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, will make you strong, with the power of My might; which shall be there, as an ever present help and strong support during difficult and troubling times. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, have taken a firm hold on you with My righteous right hand and shall never grow weary and then let go or release you from My, already assured, victorious strong , everlasting grip. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There’s really no need to ever be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. Even though we will definitely encounter trouble, trial, tribulation, tumult, pain, suffering, hurt, disappointment, distressing hardships, as well as difficult and troubling times, during our brief time and spiritual sojourn here on this earth, there is still not ever a reason to lose hope, but there is always a reason to remember and not ever forget this: He, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has overcome it all, on our behalf, and will always be there with us, to comfort, to help, to encourage, to protect, to strengthen and support us, by empowering us to also be overcomers.
It is because of His great promise, that He will never abandon, leave or forsake us, that our victory is already assured, no reason to fear, or to ever be discouraged, as our victory is already achieved and is here—a done deal! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/28- “Our Ultimate Victory Comes Only From Papa God—Through His Son Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/28- “Our Ultimate Victory Comes Only From Papa God—Through His Son Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Premise Question: What is the main reason why our ultimate victory comes only from Papa God—through His Son; being the vitally essential, absolute foremost superior and above in rank over all other reasons, as it is greatest in importance and most impactive to our very lives and existence?
“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT)
All thanks and praise belongs and goes only to The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! For it is He and He alone, who satisfies and fulfills our greatest and most desperate condition, that being our crucial and vital need of victory over sin, death, hell and the grave. The LORD GOD Almighty has done this for us, by and through providing The Champion Redeemer, our LORD and Savior, His Son—The LORD Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The preeminent, being tantamount and supremely paramount reason why we ought to be continually giving our thanks to The Father, Papa God, thanks to The Son and thanks to The Spirit, for all that They have done, are doing and yet will still do, on our behalf, is because in them, they are providing our eternally great and ultimate victory over our greatest challenge and most difficult problem of needing a Champion to come to our aid, by giving us total victory over sin, death, hell and the grave!
For it has always been and shall ever be, only Papa God who provides us our victory, through His Son—Jesus Christ, our ultimate Champion Redeemer, and by, the ever present help and power of The Holy Spirit!
Keep giving thanks! Don’t ever stop! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/12- “Everything Is His!” (1 Chronicles 29:11)
Premise Question: How important is it for all of Papa God’s creation to recognize His Awesome Splendor and Magnificence, and that He is high above everything and everyone, as The Exalted Supreme Sovereign over all?
“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)
The immensity and sheer magnitude of Your greatness, O LORD, belongs only to You, for their is no one like You. The capabilities and potency of Your power is infinite and unequalled, and Your magnificence, displayed in all of Your regal glory, is transcendent and majestic to behold, and Your stately splendor, in all of its grandeur and brilliance, is spectacularly resplendent, being beyond compare. For the aggregate of all things, whether in Heaven or on earth, is Yours and Yours alone. O LORD, no one else has even the slightest claim upon Your Kingdom, Your Realm and Domain. For Your dominion, reign and preeminence extends beyond Heaven and earth, for You are elevated high above everything and everyone, as The Supreme, August Ruler over all.
(1 Chronicles 29:11 PDCP)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)
Premise Question: How can it be that our total surrender is what guarantees our ultimate and complete victory in life?
“For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.”
(Psalms 149:4 NLT)
For The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself takes great pleasure in filling His own precious and most cherished people, The Company of The Redeemed, with exuberant joy, satisfaction and fulfillment; for He places upon their heads, all those who walk in humility before Him, a guaranteed triumphant glorious crown, that will never fade, nor can it ever be taken away in defeat, as they, His people, have delightfully pleased The LORD in their humble surrender to Him, and have therefore, been rewarded the everlasting crown of victory! (Psalms 149:4 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Our ultimate triumph and crown of victory is inextricably tied to our humility and total surrender to The LORD GOD Almighty. For when we please and truly delight The LORD, by totally and completely surrendering everything to Him, it causes Him to honor and reward us, by conferring upon us a glorious victors crown of everlasting joy, peace, righteousness, and eternal life.
Our ultimate victory, is therefore, absolutely assured and guaranteed, when, and only when, we humbly surrender to Him every area and part of our lives; our wills, our relationships, our ways, our work, our behaviors our goals, dreams and aspirations, all of it to His way, His will, divine purposes and desires for our lives.
The only way to win then, and receive the delightful, satisfying and fulfilling, everlasting crown of victory, is total and complete surrender! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/26- “The Great I AM—Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)
Premise Question: Knowing and fully accepting the premise that Papa God is completely for us, who are members in right standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, and that He is always on our side fighting all of our battles…who is it that could ever really be successful in coming or going against us—His precious and dearly beloved own children?
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
So, do not, under any circumstance you face, or situation you are going through, allow yourself to be overwhelmed, with distressing, worrisome, anxious thoughts, for I AM, The Great I AM, The Sovereign One True Almighty Papa God, Creator of Heaven and earth, will always be right there with you, close by your side. Do not, at any time or upon any occasion, give yourself over to being disheartened, lacking courage, wanting to just give up, but stay bold and courageous, for I AM, is your Papa God. I AM, will never leave you in a weakened state, without help, hope or provision, for I AM, will strengthen you—making you strong enough to face whatever is challenging you in the moment; therefore, I AM, will always help you. I AM, shall forever support and defend you against any and all opposition; keeping you from sinking into the depths of despair and eternal death. I AM, will accomplish this, with My incomparable, strong and victorious, filled with all honor and might, Glorious and Powerful, Righteous Right Hand. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: If Papa God is for us, who or what can be against us? Nothing and no one! Therefore, no one and nothing will ever be successful in keeping Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives from coming to fruition. Therefore, there is never going to be a valid time or reason why we should ever be fearful, frightened, distraught, timid or afraid!
Papa God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us! Whatever He says He will do, He most definitely will do, because He is ever faithful, and when He does it, He will do it thoroughly, completely and that, with excellence, honor and glory.
When The LORD tells us to not even allow our hearts to ever be troubled or to be dismayed, we can take Him at His Word! When He tells us that in this life, this world, we are going to experience trouble, trials, temptations, attacks, ridicule, suffering, persecution, but, we are to be full of joy and cheer, and to not be discouraged because of any of it, as He has overcome this world and everything that could ever happen to us in this life; we are to rejoice and be glad, for He has promised to give us His strength, His peace, and His comfort, encouragement, refreshing, restoration and renewal!
Our’s is the victory forever and always, because The Most High, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is our LORD and Savior—The Great I AM, who is always there for us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/30- “Let Papa God Repay!” (Proverbs 20:22)
Premise Question: Are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, most commonly referred to as Christians, ever supposed to take matters into our own hands and reciprocate in kind, in order to even the score, after we’ve been put upon or wronged?
Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the LORD to handle the matter. (Proverbs 20:22 NLT)
Refuse to react, by declaring with malicious intent, what you will do to others who’ve hurt, wounded, injured, caused you trouble, pain and or injustice. Rather, choose to respond to them, by waiting patiently, with a calm assurance, knowing that The LORD Himself will come to your aid—your rescue and defense, by repaying in full, those who’ve come against you, thorough and complete; for no one can repay and settle a score better than The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! (Proverbs 20:22 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In answer to the premise question: Absolutely not!
Let The LORD repay, because He does it a lot better and is completely thorough! In saying that, though, we should not ever have the attitude of, well, The LORD says He’ll take care of it for me, so go ahead LORD! Make my day! Go get em LORD! You have my permission to obliterate them! And while You’re at it, LORD, do make sure you get em real good! And I do mean really good, with thunder bolts of lightning and everything that can come with it! Sic ’em Jesus!
Now, none of that really fits the appropriate attitude, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are to display and have towards those who’ve hurt, wounded, wronged, insulted or offended us. For we should not ever relish or feed those thoughts, but should quickly perish and utterly rid ourselves of all those thoughts and attitudes!
We ought to always choose to refuse to react out of our hurt and pain, or injury and insults, that we’ve endured and received, from being mistreated, maligned, abused and wronged, by attempting to settle the score, make it right or give payback that’s due.
We are not to ever be revengeful and reciprocating, by replying or repaying in kind, with our own returns of volatile volleys, but should always choose to respond to them with kindness and grace, displaying great patience and endurance, while showing them mercy and love.
Therefore, by doing this, we will always allow and leave room for The LORD to act on our behalf.
And, we should also, always rejoice when persecuted in this fashion, for it shows that we’ve been counted worthy to be treated in the same way and manner that our LORD was!
Let Papa God Repay! After all, He will do it a lot better than we ever could ever even imagine or actually do, and then, produce righteous results and just recompense! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/05- “Run Your Race With Dogged Determination!” (Hebrews 12:1b-2)
Premise Question: How are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, supposed to approach the race we’ve each been given to run in this life, how are we to run the race we’ve each been given in this life and finally, how are we to finish the race we’ve each been given to run in this life?
And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
(Hebrews 12:1b-2 NLT)
Be doggedly determined, while running the race of your life; proceeding with a sense of urgency, persistently steady, regardless of the obstacles or challenges you encounter along the course and path that’s been clearly marked out for you to follow. Refuse to acknowledge anyone or anything else that would distract you and take you off course and path, in your race. Always remain focused, with your eyes gazing intently only upon our Victor, The Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ, who is the first, the pathfinder, The One who forged a new path, by entering and clearing the way for all of us to enter into a new faith that is without any flaws, entirely faultless and beyond any improvement, being that it is entirely perfect. It was because of the exhilarating extreme joyful delight that was presented to Jesus, by Papa God, His Father, namely, the deliverance and salvation of the whole of humankind, that He willingly yielded to the abject, contemptible disdain and the disgracefully painful ignominy of the cruel cross. Following this, though, Jesus sat down in the most highly exalted, most honored and His rightful place, seated right next to His Father, The Sovereign Almighty Papa God, upon His eternal throne. (Hebrews 12:1b, 2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are to approach our individual race with an attitude of humility, awe, having hopeful expectations, with great excitement, along with a joyful enthusiasm.
We should devote our lives to running well, always looking up, not down, moving and pressing forward, looking ahead, not behind.
We are to run our individual race, with a dogged determination, completely resolute and tenacious while running in our race. Refusing to quit, never giving in to the pressures, temptations and vicissitudes of life, but always relying on the leading, guiding and empowering of The LORD’S Holy Spirit.
And, perhaps, when on an occasion we are distracted by something or someone, causing us to stumble and fall by the wayside; then, we must not allow ourselves to stay down on the ground, just laying around, on our path and course, stewing and wallowing in defeat, shame and ignominy, just waiting, and at times, even wanting to die. But, we must arise, get up, repent and begin again! Remembering that as long as we are still here, there is still something we’ve not done; and so, we must finish the race we’ve been give to run and complete.
Speaking of finishing: We are to finish strong the race we’ve been given to run, in this life! We may not be able to run as fast as we once did, when we were younger, but we can still choose to sprint to the finish line and lean into the tape at the end with a flourish!
Then, we will hear these words from our LORD: “Well done! Way to go! You ran great, my faithful servant and dear friend! Come on in and enjoy all the rewards I’ve prepared for you! You are victorious! You have overcome and won your race!”
I once heard a man describe life, our race, as being the – (dash) between the date of our birth, both physical and spiritual and the date of our death in this life. The – (dash) in each person’s life is different, in that each one is given a certain amount of time to run their race and each one is given a different kind of race to run. Some may have a very short race, like a fifty-yard dash, while others may be given a hundred-yard sprint, and still others may be given longer and more difficult races to run, such as, a three-thousand meter steeple race, with many obstacles. Then, there are some that will even be given a marathon to run, which I would say, most of us are given, as it is a life long, in for the long haul kind of race.
Whatever race we’ve been given to run in this life, we need to run like the wind, giving our greatest effort and devotion, with a dogged determination to finish strong the race we began, the one given to us to run, by The LORD Himself. Blessings…
