Deuteronomy 31:1-32:9, Luke 12:8-34, Psalms 78:26-45, Proverbs 12:21-23

Today is the 7th day of April. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is a pleasure and an honor to be here with you today as we prepare to close down and release another week. So, yeah, we’re a whole week into the month of April now. When we left the month of March, we had reached the 25 percent mark. Twenty five percent of the way through the Scriptures. And now we’re a week beyond that. So, well done. We are well on our way. And there’s much out in front of us, but all we have to do is look back. Look back at the beginning of the year. Look at where we are now, not only in the Scriptures, but in our lives. And we’ve put enough effort and time into this to be able to see that this is shifting things. This is changing the way I look at things. This is making a rhythm in my life that is doing good inside of me. So, here we are at the end of another week. We’ve been reading from the English Standard Version this week, which is what we’ll do today. Deuteronomy chapter 31 verse 1 through 32:27. And we’re nearing the end of the book of Deuteronomy. Just a couple more days and we will be reaching the end of the Pentateuch or the Torah. So, let’s dive in. Deuteronomy.


Father, we thank You for another week in Your Word. We thank You for the celebration of Easter that began this week. We continue to glory in the fact that You came for us and would not abandon us and will not abandon us. The joy of our salvation is ours. But all we have to do is choose life. So, Father, as we release this week and it becomes a part of our history, we look forward with great anticipation to all that is in store for us as we continue to journey through the Scriptures and as we continue to make choices that are life giving in collaboration and in relationship with You. We love You, Father. We worship You. We are grateful for everything, including our lives. Come, Holy Spirit, into this day. In Jesus name. Amen.

And the other thing is that the More Gathering for women begins on the 12th of April, so coming right up. Some things back to back. And as a community we’ve been praying over the women’s gathering in Georgia in just a few days and so we want to continue to do that. Keep that on the radar. We need to raise a canopy of prayer over everything about it as we do each year. Praying over the hearts of the women who will be in attendance. So, thank you for your prayers.

Community Prayer and Praise:

Hello. This is Julia from Des Moines. I’m calling for Sophie from Oregon. Sophie, your heart sounds so broken. I just want…I’ve been lifting you up in prayer…and I just want you to know that Jesus has been exactly where you are. In the garden of Gethsemane, He was broken and tired and He poured from an empty cup and He knew what was coming. And girl, just hold on. Your Savior knows. He knows where you are. And He’s got a light shining at the end of the tunnel for you. He just does. You are in such a deep dark forest but just trust. Trust that God has it. And when you can trust it’s time to reach out. It’s time to find help. Find some church ladies who will make you dinner and find somebody who will listen to you. I’ve been through a dark season recently and that’s what saved me. I mean it was…it was just grace that they would come in and wrap me in love with just meals and doing my dishes. So, honey, I just encourage you reach out. Find those who love you. And you know that we are all here for you too. Bye.

Hey DAB. This is Marsha in Minnesota and I just listened to April 3rd and I’m just so taken aback by Sophie in Oregon. I know what you’re going through and I am so sorry. And I am praying for strength and I am sending you strength, and you can go on another day. I know you going do that. Okay. So, hang in there darling. And I can just feel Jesus’ arms around you giving you strength and love. So, hang in there. I’ll get better. Bye.

Hi family. This is Salvation is Mine in San Angelo California. Let’s pray. Dear heavenly Father, we come before You, requesting that a blessing be sent down right now Lord. So many of us are in trouble Lord, whether it’s mental, physical, financial, or emotionally. We are in trouble Lord and __ so deep in our soul Lord that we can even find that place, but You are there Lord. You are there in this place for us. You are our Savior. You are our God. You are a mentor. You are our Father. You are a mother, You’re our sister, our brother, our pastor. Oh, heavenly Father, we reach out to You, we are on our knees, we are laying prostrate before You Lord God because we have nothing left in us for ourselves Lord God, but we know You are there and You will help us and You will keep us and You will hold us. And yes, even mold us to what You want us to be. Help us to relinquish self, Lord God. Help us to focus on You and Your word and Your love for God. Oh, Father God we praise You for the blessing that You’re going to send out. We thank You for the mercy and the grace that we get every single morning when we wake up Lord God. We thank You for every blessing in our body that doesn’t belong to us but belongs to You Lord God. Oh, Father God You are the Alpha and the Omega of all things Lord God. There is no God before You and there is no God after You. We praise You Lord God. We thank You. And we just at continue to ask for that blessing. And we ask that blessing in faith Lord God. No doubt will enter us Lord God. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. Thank You for praying with me family. This is Salvation is Mine.

Hello Daily Audio Bible. My name is Davis. This is my first time calling in. This is my first year listening to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m calling for Sharon the Victorious. I heard your prayer request and I just wanted to let you know that it might not seem like you’re victorious right now but you just need to be reminded that as long as you are with God and God is with you, you are always victorious. And I have seen so many cases like this where your life is just going down the toilet and it just seems hopeless but I’ve also seen so many bounce back up. And, so, as long as God is with you, I have faith that things are going to turn out well. And no matter what happens, I know that it’s all part of God’s plan and I know that He has so much more for you than this because you have such a big heart putting others so, without hesitance, before yourself. So, I just want to pray for you. Dear Lord, please put Your hand of blessing on Sharon and her family. Please give Your hand of healing to her husband with his back and especially help her daughter and touch her heart and her mind. Please show her Your love and Your peace and Your wisdom. Please give her the courage to step out of this…

Good afternoon Daily Audio Bible family. This is Lee from New Jersey. Long time no speak to. Today is April 3rd and it is about 12 noon, a little later that. And I just wanted to call and give everyone an update. I finally found a job, thank God for that. Not only did I find a job, it’s more than what I expected. In so many ways more than I deserve. I’ve said that before, so I’m going to try not to say that. And you know, just God is great. God is great. It was funny because I went to…this whole month of Lent…basically…I’ve been out of work. I’ve been able to go to masses…actually…for daily and had the host daily. I also went to confession, being I’m Catholic. And during confession the priest was telling me that, you know, that when God gives, he gives, you know, all of His bountiful riches, His treasures. And it was on a Thursday, it was Holy Thursday and I went to confession. And like a few hours after that I got a phone call from one employer and with their offer and it felt just like that. It felt like God opened His treasures and He just dumped them on me. And I’m just so grateful for that. So, grateful for all of you praying for me as well. And we are family. We thank you all very, very much. So, I will be calling back soon. Everything is going well. I did fight through and I feel…at least for me…I conquered some bouts of depression and some bouts of anger and all of that stuff. So, dealing with a few little things, but not as severe as before. Thank God for that. So, every day is better. And just want to say, God bless you all and I’ll be calling back soon.
