How Well Do You Know the Script?
On the stage of life there are many situations that we face. Do we know how to act in every situation?
The root of the word scripture is “script”. A script is defined as a prearranged written dialog or story line; a series of instructions that is executed; to plan or devise; make arrangements for.
The writer writes the story, assigns each actor to a part and the participants take the time to rehearse, to study and learn their lines. When “action” is called, the performers bring the written script to life by speaking the well rehearsed lines.
Isn’t this the way it goes in the spirit? God has written the greatest story every told. Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. The Spirit of God that abides inside of us brings life to the Word!
There is power in speaking God’s Word — the Holy Scriptures.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
We read how we should meditate on the precepts of God. Meditate means: converse (with oneself, and hence aloud) or (transitively) utter: — commune, declare, meditate, muse, pray, speak, talk (with).
SPEAK THE SCRIPT, STUDY THE SCRIPT, DECLARE THE SCRIPT OUT-LOUD!
Psalm 45: 1 says,
“My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
One commentary says that my tongue is the pen of a ready writer; full of it’s subject!
When the enemy comes against me, I want to be so full of the subject of faith in God that I will be able to speak the Word and see the miracles of God working through me.
When situations arise, I want to be able to, not recite the situation, but be so full of the King of kings and Lord of lords, I will speak God’s Word, respond to the situation the way I have rehearsed, because I have hidden the “script”ure in my heart that my behavior would be modified by it. (Psalm 119:11)
Whenever I get discouraged, all I have to do is re-read the script, re-read the greatest story ever told, re-read his everlasting promises! Study the script, line upon line, precept upon precept.
Hebrews 12:3 (MSG)
When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
If you rehearse the “script“ure, then you will know how to act, respond and you will even know what to speak in every situation. Let the Word of God abide in you today!
