SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/04/15- “As Long As I Have Breath, I Will Praise The LORD!” (Psalms 63:4-5)
Premise Question: For what duration and in what way and manner, should we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, honor The Name of The LORD GOD Almighty?
“I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.”
(Psalms 63:4-5 NLT)
It is of my own volition, that I deliberately, with great diligence, devotion and determination, each and everyday of my life, for as long as I shall have breath, choose to honor You, O LORD, wholeheartedly, with every fiber and all the strength of my being, by offering up to You, my highest and most extravagant praise and worship, unto Your magnificent, incomparable and splendidly glorious Name. In so doing, I shall be filled with the glory of Your presence, being completely content, absolutely gratified and supplied abundantly, with every kind of the most delectable of fare. Therefore, I shall not ever stop lifting my hands, my heart and my voice, with expressions of great and exuberant joyful praise unto You, LORD GOD Almighty. I will utter these ecstatic expressions, with my mouth and lips, and with singing, that shall come from the very depths of my most grateful and satisfied heart and soul, even within the within of the innermost part of my being. (Psalms 63:4-5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, as fully accepted and sealed members of The Company of The Redeemed, should always be joyfully ready and willing to, at all times, on all occasions and in every circumstance and situation, without exception, offer up unto The LORD GOD Almighty, invoking, bestowing upon and honoring His Name, with constant expressions of extravagant praise and worship, in songs, that are filled with exuberant joyful singing, which should ultimately come from deep within the within of our innermost beings, being forever grateful, full of joy, extremely thankful, hearts and souls. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/03/15- “Together, Let Us Worship The Rock Of Our Salvation!” (Psalms 95:1-2)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/03/15- “Together, Let Us Worship The Rock Of Our Salvation!” (Psalms 95:1-2)
Premise Question: What is the critically most important key, being an absolute necessity, and then, what are some of the other significant keys, that would be extremely helpful, for us to accept and understand, in regards to our praise and worship of The LORD, The Rock of our salvation?
“Come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him.” (Psalms 95:1-2 NLT)
Let us, The Company of The Redeemed, all come together as one, with great delight and celebration, singing joyful exultations unto The King Eternal, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. Let us all, together in unison, with one voice, exclaim with exuberant expressions of worship and praise, that are literally expressed, being uttered at the top of our lungs and with all our might, unto our Great Protector, The Almighty Solid Rock; our Redeemer who rescues us from certain death and destruction. Let us all, together as one, with boldness, confidently approach the throne of grace and mercy of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty; entering into His glorious presence with hearts overflowing, full of gratitude and thanksgiving, for all His benefits and gracious favor given and shown us. Let us do this, by extolling His Excellency, with wonderfully inspired spiritual songs, psalms of praise, hymns and music of every ilk, kind, style, tradition and culture. (Psalms 95:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The absolutely necessary, being the critically most important key for us as members of The Company of The Redeemed, who are the dearly beloved and most cherished children of The Most High, is to come together as one, into complete and full agreement and unity, on this one vital principle and truth; that Jesus Christ is The King Eternal, The Rock of our eternal salvation, The LORD of all! And everyone who calls on The Name of The LORD, shall be saved! That is where we should and must begin. Then, after we’ve come together as one, it is important for us to celebrate and joyfully accept and embrace one another, in the various and sundry, different types, forms, functions and expressions of praise and worship. One expression of praise and worship may be more acceptable or preferred, over another, by different segments or groups, within the whole of the body and congregation of The Company of The Redeemed. But they all should be joyfully accepted, recognized and celebrated, as all of them have as their focus, or at least should have, the wonderful expressions of laudations, exultations, exaltation and thanksgivings being offered up to The LORD; all coming and emanating from hearts that are full of gratitude, uttered with mouths that are filled with rejoicing and boisterous celebration, singing, shouting, hands raised or clapping, feet jumping or dancing, all for the express purpose of honoring, glorifying, praising and worshiping The One True and Living Eternal Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Jesus Christ, The LORD and King of all, The Rock of our salvation! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/17/15- “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 and great example of the importance of having a direct conversation with ourselves, by telling his 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: 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: 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)
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…
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. (Psalm 100:4 NIV)
The key to entering through the portal that gives and gains one’s access, to the passageway that leads one directly into the very presence and inner sanctum of The LORD God Almighty, is a grateful heart, filled with thanksgiving, appreciation and honor for Him; once there, inside the very courts of His manifest presence, all honor, all worship, all glory, all praise and all thanks should lavishly, with great exuberance and joy, be given and lifted up unto His Holy Name, which is The Name above every name, being the most gracious and glorious name, The Name of our LORD God Almighty. (Psalm 100:4 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Everyday of our existence should be a day of Thanksgiving; each and everyday deliberately entering The LORD’S presence, spending time with Him, giving Him the honor, glory and worship, with thanksgiving, that’s due His Name. Refuse to ever spend a whole day without gaining access, at some point during each day, to spend time in His presence, you will benefit greatly when you do take the time to honor The LORD. Happy Thanksgiving…Blessings…
