SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/13/15- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Premise Question: How often and when does The LORD GOD Almighty make us, His precious and beloved children, strong?
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT)
But the magnificent and most merciful LORD GOD Almighty set me straight, with this greatly encouraging admonition: “My ever faithful, loving kindness is all that you will ever need, it will always suffice, for My efficacious ability to accomplish and fulfill My divine design, will and purpose for your life, becomes ideal and absolutely impeccable, when in your frailty, inadequacies, infirmities and afflictions, you choose to completely rely upon Me!” Now that, is the reason why I’m more than happy and joyful to speak, with excessive pride, in an exaggerated manner and grandiose fashion, about my inglorious inadequacies, frail infirmities and noisome afflictions; knowing full well that The LORD GOD Almighty Himself is empowering me to do all that He desires, fulfilling and accomplishing in me and through me, His divine design, purpose and will for my life and ultimately, all for His Glory. (2 Corinthians 12:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: He does it always through His sufficient grace and by His power. For He, The LORD GOD Almighty, will always make us strong, in our weaknesses, as we choose to rely on His strength and not our own. Sometimes though, our own strengths can become our weaknesses, when we choose to rely on them, rather than relying upon The LORD’S strength and all sufficient grace. But, even still, in our own strength/weaknesses, when yielded to Him, He will make us strong! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/18/15- “He, The LORD, Knows Personally, What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/18/15- “He, The LORD, Knows Personally, What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)
Premise Question: Just how is it possible, that our High Priest, Jesus Christ, can fully understand every one of our weaknesses, our horrible trials and testings, as well as, our most arduous struggles and difficult challenges?
“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15 NLT)
For we confidently profess, with full assurance, that we are enormously blessed, by knowing, as a matter of record, that our High Priest, The LORD Jesus Christ, has the unique capacity and ability of understanding all of our frailties, weaknesses and infirmities, that we may encounter in life; because He Himself, has vicariously experienced every one of them, all, just for us, by being tested, tried and tempted, in every manner, mode and fashion possibly known to humankind, and still, He was found to be faithful and true, for He did not succumb to the lower nature and yield to sin, for He, who was without sin, did not ever sin. (Hebrews 4:15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The reason we, every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, can be absolutely confident, with full assurance, that our High Priest, who is our redeeming LORD and Savior, has the exclusively unique and very important ability, to completely identify and then truly empathize with us, in all of our weaknesses, challenging trials and difficult testings, is because He, Jesus Christ Himself, was tested and certified, to be tried and true, completely authenticated, to be absolutely qualified and approved, in order to become the perfect sacrifice and substitute, to take our place, pay for our sin and become The Redeemer of all of humankind; because of His sinless life, as He never once yielded or succumbed to any temptation, trial or trouble that He encountered, was challenged, confronted or affronted with, and therefore, never failed, faltered nor did He ever stumble in any of His ways, for He was perfect, holy and righteous, in every way, and did not ever sin! That’s why He can totally relate, fully comprehend and understand us, no matter what we may have gone through, may be going through or may yet go through; for there is not anything that any of us can or will ever have to go through, that He, The LORD, hasn’t already experienced and overcome. So, be encouraged today, with the knowledge and comfort, that The LORD Himself, personally knows and has gone through, anything and everything that we will face in this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/16/15- “When We Don’t Know What Or How, The Holy Spirit Always Does!” (Romans 8:26)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/16/15- “When We Don’t Know What Or How, The Holy Spirit Always Does!” (Romans 8:26)
Premise Question: Can the true believers in Jesus Christ, being authentic members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly rely and completely depend upon The Spirit of Christ, The Holy Spirit, that lives within the within of the innermost part of their being, to faithfully lead and guide them through every difficult challenge and trying time in their lives; with divine wisdom, even guiding them into and safely through their weaknesses and things that are not known or understood?
“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” (Romans 8:26 NLT)
As we eagerly, but with patience, wait for the appearing of our Blessed Hope, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit Himself will come to our aid, with divine wisdom, assuring comfort, insertional inspiration and great insight; during those times in our lives when we experience difficult afflictions, noisome infirmities, accompanied by overwhelming sorrows. When confronted with these horrible obstacles and challenges, not knowing which way to turn, being at a complete loss of how to respond and pray, it is then, that The Holy Spirit Himself comes to our rescue, by coming along side us with deep concern, pleading our case before Papa God, The Almighty Heavenly Father, on our behalf, discerning perfectly our plight, that we cannot adequately nor amply convey, with words uttered or expressed. (Romans 8:26 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The quick, succinct and absolutely true, right and completely faithful response is: YES! The true believers in Jesus Christ, being members of The Company of The Redeemed, can without any equivocation, trepidation or timidity, absolutely fully rely on the dependability of the faithfulness and divine wisdom of The Holy Spirit living and dwelling within them! The true believer, should never be duped, pressured or bullied and coerced by their fears, flesh, their own wisdom or the opinions and whims of the culture or others about anything, but especially, when it comes to spiritual things and the things of The LORD. The true believer will always choose to trust, rely and utterly depend upon The Holy Spirit in all things! Remember, even when we don’t know what or how we ought to pray or move, The Holy Spirit always does and will faithfully lead and guide us, as well as, intercede for us before Papa God, on our behalf. Blessings…
