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.

Proverbs 18:21
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!
