SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/25/15- “Humility Elicits Papa God’s Gracious Favor And Power Every Time!” (James 4:6-7)
Premise Question: When do we, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, actually have the full power, authority and backing from Papa God, to tell the enemy of our soul, the devil and all his minions, to get lost; and at what point does our enemy have to comply?
And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:6-7 NLT)
And, as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly delineates, His gracious favor will never run out, come up short or in anywise ever be found deficient, but will always be more than enough, being completely sufficient on every occasion and in any situation or circumstance. Although Papa God will always be ever ready and willing to grant the full measure of His grace and favor towards those who remain humble, He will also, always be hostile towards, with great resistance, those who persist in being insolent and full of pride. So then, yield yourself, in humble submission, under the power and authority of Papa God Almighty, making this your first and foremost priority in your daily spiritual walk and life. For when you permanently revoke the license of the enemy of your soul, the devil, to no longer have the ability to gain access, in order to operate and create havoc in your life, by you always humbly submitting and yielding yourself to Papa God Almighty, you’ve not merely just temporarily suspended the license of your enemy, the devil, to operate in your life by just resisting, but have now, by striving and standing against him, with the help of The Almighty, he, the devil, shall and must take flight in fright, swiftly, without delay, moving far far away from you. (James 4:6, 7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The key to effectively resisting the devil and all of his devices, schemes and evil minions, and then to have him cease and desist his actions taken against us, so that he then takes flight and leaves us alone; is to first, rid yourself of any and all insolence, arrogance and pride, by coming before The presence of The LORD in total humility, respectfully and humbly, submitting ourselves before The Almighty, Papa God, in reverential awe. We can resist the devil until we’re blue in the face or until the cows come home! But, it will all be for naught and will have no effect, unless and until we do first things first, which is to humbly submit ourselves to The Almighty, Papa God. The devil and his minions do not have to listen to us one iota, as long as he is still being given access to our life because of our illicit, wayward and disobedient ways. For until and unless we choose to humble ourselves in obedient submission, by coming into agreement and full compliance with His Holy Writ, we still haven’t revoked his license to operate in our lives! We all need to stop granting the devil and his minions access to our lives, and immediately choose to humbly submit ourselves to Papa God, so that our resisting will not be in vain, and our enemy, the devil, must then, get lost forever! Remember, when we humble ourselves and submit to Papa God, that’s when we have all power and authority to resist the devil, and it is at that point, that the devil must comply, by taking flight and fleeing!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/18/15- “Get Rid Of It All!” (James 1:21)
Premise Question: Why is it so vital, being critically important and extremely significant, for us to rid ourselves of all the filth and evil from our lives and humbly accept His Word that has been placed deep within our innermost being, and what purposes does it serve?
So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. (James 1:21 NLT)
Therefore, as a result of us being made fully aware of what we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, should do, as a consequential necessity. We must choose to deliberately, with diligence, eliminate and discard, by fleeing from and becoming free of, all encumbrances of sinful and harmful conduct. This is to include all corrupt, foul, impure, vile thoughts, actions, deeds and behaviors, that has become widespread, with a wide effect; and then, we must choose to exhibit a meek, submissive, subservient heart, reconciling ourselves to come into agreement with the Word that’s been buried deep within the within of our innermost being, by Papa God Himself, in order to establish and rescue us from certain spiritual death and damnation, which results in eternal separation from Papa God’s presence! (James 1:21 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It is critically vital for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to “keep our hearts free from all debris,” by getting rid of and purging all the filth and evil from our daily lives. “Flush the flesh and stay refreshed!” So that, we will not be greatly hindered or stunted, in our spiritual growth and maturity, thus becoming and staying spiritually anemic, sick and weak, lacking the power and vitality to be effective in accomplishing Papa God’s divine purpose, will and mission for our lives. And, it’s also extremely important for us to humbly accept Papa God’s Word, that He’s planted deep within the within of our innermost being, because He, Papa God, always rejects and opposes those who are arrogant and full of pride, but will always accept and freely give His gracious favor to those who are meek and humble, in their approach toward Him. Basically, there are only two ways we can choose to go: Humility or Humiliation, we make the choice! Finally, the two main purposes it serves is: First and foremost, it has the power to save our eternal souls, and secondly, it is the enabling force that empowers us to pursue, with great efficacy, the intended divinely designed, divine will, purpose and great mission of Papa God, for our lives and benefit and ultimately, for His glory! Blessings…
