Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/16- “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!”
(Philippians 4:13)

Premise Question: Can, will and does the strength of The LORD truly empower and equip us to do everything?

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
(‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NLT)

Armed with, “a can do attitude of fortitude,” being fully assured, that no matter what I may have to face or endure, in this life, I will always be sufficiently supplied, by and through Jesus Christ, with His efficacious power and might, to always have the courage, (nerve) to face anything, always being equal to any task and up for every challenge. (Philippians 4:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! There is nothing that is equal to, nor can stand against, the all powerful, all mighty, strength of The LORD! The only caveat though, is whether or not we, as believers, choose to place our complete trust, faith and reliance upon The LORD, and His true and faithful, intentional promise, given to us in this verse of His Holy Writ. For we must take upon ourselves the mind, and attitude, with the perspective of Christ, that being: a “can do attitude of fortitude,” with a resolute determination of “persistent perseverance.” Then, we’ll have the strength, courage and nerve to face anything and everything we may have to encounter, or must actually go through, in this life! Check out Romans 15:5 and Philippians 2:5. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/14/15- “When All Else Fails, He Still Remains The Same And Continues To Sustain!” (Psalms 73:26)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/14/15- “When All Else Fails, He Still Remains The Same And Continues To Sustain!” (Psalms 73:26)

Premise Question: Regardless of what may happen or what we may have to go through and endure in this life; what and who always remains a constant and through it all, will never abandon, forsake or let us down, but will continue to remain, forever and ever, the same?

“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.” (Psalms‬ ‭73:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Everything around me, including my health and my heart, may falter and fail, but The LORD GOD Almighty, is now, has been, and shall always continue to forever be, without end, the unfailing, ever refreshing, truly encouraging and renewing, joyful strong force and strength of my innermost being, deep within the within, of my heart and soul, as He shall always be, (for nothing else can even begin to fulfill or satisfy) my portion and lot in life, the epitome of all that completely fills and sustains my life. (Psalms 73:26 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There are probably, in many of our individual lives, going to be an occasion, a time, an event, situation or circumstance, whereby, we may be subject to slipping, faltering, floundering, fizzling or falling short and perhaps even completely failing; and as a result, becoming embittered because of it all, torn up on the inside, by resentfulness, malice, hate and an unforgiving heart, lacking any physical or spiritual vim, vigor or vitality, completely bankrupt and devoid of a flourishing and refreshing life. But, The LORD GOD Almighty, who is ever merciful and enduring, faithful and true, will come to our aid and rescue, when we call upon His Everlasting Name. And then, He will lift us up out of the mire and mud, stuck in the ditch, trench or chasm we’ve fallen into, and set our feet upon solid ground, even The Rock of our salvation. He then begins leading, guiding and giving us wise counsel, that directs our feet onto the path and into the way, that will bring us back into a right and holy relationship with Him and that ultimately leads us to our most glorious and divine destiny. That is why we desire Him more than we desire anything else upon this earth! He, The LORD GOD, is the quintessence of our existence, as He is our treasure trove, our wellspring of life and the secret to a thriving, more than just surviving, flourishing, completely satisfying and fulfilling existence! When all else fails around me, even when I fail, He remains ever the same, for I am His and He is mine, nothing’s ever going to change that, for He will always continue to sustain me, forever and forever, without end! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/26/15- “Our Strength And Protection Comes From Papa God!” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/26/15- “Our Strength And Protection Comes From Papa God!” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

Premise Question: Who is the only One, known to humankind, that is ever faithful and true, and can absolutely ensure the protection of the very souls of humankind, keeping them strong, safe and eternally secure?

“But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.” (‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

But The Magnificent LORD God Almighty, who is always reliable, ever faithful and true, being omnipotent (all powerful); will Himself show up on your behalf, surrounding you with His Angelic Armies of Heaven, with sure and certain protection, as well as, make you strong and courageous, with His effectual spiritual force of might and power, The Holy Spirit, which is even now working and living inside of you, so that, you will be triumphantly victorious over the enemy of your soul, the Evil One. (2 Thessalonians 3:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Redeemer and loving Papa God, is one of a kind, The One and Only One who is Faithful and True, being absolutely trustworthy and completely reliable. And it is His Everlasting Word that is His eternal bond, which binds, fastens and holds us, The Company of The Redeemed and everything else together. He infuses us continually with His strength, might and power; undergirding, reinforcing, renewing, refreshing, sustaining and supporting us daily, moment by moment, with the comfort, guidance and leading of The Holy Spirit, working and living inside of us, within the within, of the innermost part of our being. Finally, He is constantly guarding and protecting us from the devices, attacks and evil schemes of the enemy of our very soul and our eternal existence; keeping us eternally safe and secure, from the harm of eternal death and destruction. Thank You Papa God for the strength and protection You provide! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/26/15- “The Great I Am Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/26/15- “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, 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 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! 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: PDCP- 04/10/15- “Deep And Wide!” (Colossians 2:6-7)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/10/15- “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. He 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 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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/16/15 “A Can Do Attitude Of Fortitude!”
(Philippians 4:13)

Premise Question: Will and does the strength of The LORD truly empower and equip us to do everything?

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
(‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NLT)

Armed with, “a can do attitude of fortitude,” being fully assured, that no matter what I may have to face or endure, in this life, I will always be sufficiently supplied, by and through Jesus Christ, with His efficacious power and might, to always have the courage, (nerve) to face anything, always being equal to any task and up for every challenge.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/07/15- “We Are Comforted, So That We Can Comfort Others!” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/07/15- “We Are Comforted, So That We Can Comfort Others!” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Premise Question: Is it possible to comfort others, who are going through tremendous trials, troubles, torment and great suffering, with the comfort of Papa God, without having first experienced His all sufficient comfort in our own disturbingly difficult, distressing and trying times?

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭3-4‬ NLT)

Every expression of approval, acclaim, accolade or laudation, should all be given to Papa God, The One True Sovereign Almighty God, who is The Father of our most precious LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is He, who is the fountainhead and wellspring of all reassuring, consoling comfort; sharing with us His generous grace, while showing us His magnanimous mercy. He does this, by bringing relief and solace to us, in the midst of our own troubling vexations, which then enables us to have the needed wherewithal, to help others in their difficult and trying times; for when they are overwhelmed by the trials and vicissitudes of this life, you will have the capacity to be ready, willing and able, to administer the identical comfort and help, from Papa God, that you received and experienced in your own challenging and difficult times.
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s a song, from a number of years ago, written by the wonderful song writer and precious minister of The LORD, Andre Crouch, entitled, “Through It All.” I believe the lyrics give us insight into the answer to the Premise Question. Here is a couple of partial examples, from that song.
#1) “But in every situation, God gave me blessed consolation, that my trials come only to make me strong.” #2) “For if I’d never had a problem, I wouldn’t know God could solve them, I’d never know what faith in God could do!”
So, perhaps Papa God permits and allows us to go through some of our difficult trials, for a number of specific reasons. One would be that we might personally experience His all sufficient, reassuring, consoling comfort and peace. Two would be, so that we would then have the capacity to not only be absolutely certain about Papa God’s great comfort, but also have an authentic compassion for others, in what they are going through, as well as having the ability to do something about it, by bringing the same love, mercy, grace and comforting, all surpassing compassion, to bear into their lives, in the exact same way. So, in answer to the Premise Question…”Nope” not possible! Why, because we are comforted so that we can comfort others, with the same comfort we were comforted with! Blessings…
