Today is the 13th day of May. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and it is a pleasure to be here with you as we step through the doorway, the threshold, into a brand-new week that will just unfold out before us. This week we’re gonna read from the Christian Standard Bible. And we will, of course, up where we left off yesterday and that will put us at First Samuel chapter 14 today.
Father, we thank You for Your word and and as we crossed the threshold into a brand-new week we walk through the threshold with You. You continue to sweep us forward in the Scriptures, they Mark are days. This is the rhythm of our lives each and every day we come to hear from You to be fed spiritually by You through Your word and each and every day is a new day beginning Your mercies are new faithfulness remains and as we walk into this this week we walk confidently knowing that there is no where we can flee from Your presence. And we look forward to all that we will enjoy together as a community and in a relationship with You this week. Come Holy Spirit we pray in Jesus name we ask. Amen

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi, this is Will from Northern Virginia. I am calling for a couple of reasons. Number one, my friend Annabelle, I called about earlier, she’s in stage III or stage IV cancer. She doesn’t really want to talk about anything; however, we know that she’s having an operation on the 16th of this month and we are praying that the doctors are able to go in and get everything. Unfortunately, she couldn’t take the chemotherapy and she stopped after two rounds, which is an advisable but, you know, she’s made peace with that decision and she leaves herself in the hands of the Lord. So, we’re praying that that tumor had shrunk and they’re able to get all of it if that is God’s will. We just pray that whatever happens she’s able to glorify You. And her daughter is a wonderful young woman she’s raised as a single mother. She’s raised a wonderful young daughter. And she knows she has a home with us for as long as she lives. And we just pray that we’re able to stand in for her mother if that’s what’s necessary but more importantly, we pray that her mother will live. Also, my…It’s so funny…I…we…my wife and I have had a problem with money for as long as we’ve been married, about 18 years. And, it’s so funny, once my, as the head of the household, the husband, the father, grandfather decided, you know what, we’re going to pay our bills, that’s gonna be the most important thing. We’re gonna give money to God and pay our bills. As soon as that became the focus, it’s so funny, I started getting overtime that I didn’t used to get before. I started getting money coming from sources that I’d never gotten money from before. All that money is going to…either going to God…
This is Judy from Florida. There was a period of time in my life when I went through a deep depression. Even when circumstances were good and there was nothing to be depressed about I still felt depressed. Then I read a book on depression where I learned that where our prayers and thoughts lead they don’t go away, they go into our subconscious mind. The book said that we have six months’ worth of old thoughts in our subconscious and this affects how we feel. So, I began daily, constantly, on purpose replacing all negative thoughts with positive thoughts. This was not easy but I did it consistently every day. In the beginning I must’ve had to do this a thousand times a day. But eventually it got easier and in six months I was no longer depressed. Since then I try to keep positive thoughts in my mind. I believe that this can work with lust or any other kinds of thoughts but you have to be consistent and determined. Thank you Brian and Jill for this podcast. I pray for all of you. Bye-bye.
Hi this is Cherry from the Tulsa Oklahoma area. I left a message earlier but I thought I should redo it because I got pretty emotional and I thought maybe it couldn’t be hard. I am calling regarding two points. One, Mike, he just triggered this in me that I should make this call. Mike, on May 4th, tank you for your humility, your tender heart, yeah, you just broke me down when I heard you, because, here we go, I’m crying again. There’s a man named Greg. He’s 49. I love him. He’s killing himself with the alcohol. He has neuropathy in his feet. He just got out of the hospital and I’m out on a job so I just had to step back into what I have in the past when I can only go back home twice a year. He can come back here with me and travel but I’m like his life support and I can’t…it’s not a healthy place to be. I had to take this. And, so, he jumped back into the vodka and…anyway…I just…got this nasty __ . I’m fearful, I’m not fearful, but, you know, it’s life and death right now in this moment for Greg. And this is a big turning point. And he loves God. He came from a Christian background. He wants to quit but he is not able to. So, just pray. I know God can do this. I mean, I know God can do this. So, I just need prayer that God’s gonna bring his heart to repentance and conviction and this time to where he comes out of this. I don’t want to lose him. He is an awesome man…if you only knew. Just like, God, thank you guys. I don’t know…
Hey everybody. Hey, this is Annette from Oklahoma city. Hey, just got back from Colorado to visit my kiddos. Oh, my young son Alex. Oh guys, let me tell you he has, he is thinking low folks, it’ ain’t good but at least he’s got a good place to live that’s really nice, got a little money in his pocket. That’s about all I can say about it. But my oldest son Ricky is doing super, super well and doing great, doing construction work, building stuff out there in Loveland and Greeley Colorado. And I did wave as I came into the airport all my Denver friends. Boy when I came home I was just in a daze and in a funk, you know, and just kind of sad to leave my sons and trying to process everything. And I got kinda down about it and I open my email and it said something this morning about hang on, hope is coming. And I’m like. Okay. I didn’t even know what it meant. And then I get an email or a message from Sharon H. and her family from Ohio one of our DAB friends there, sisters and brothers, and kiddo. And they came here and contacted me. And we had a nice ice cream. And they just blessed me, they blessed me so much and reminded me that, you know, we got a great big family here and my family came and bailed me out when I needed them most. And I thank you guys so much. I love every one of you. Thank you, Sharon and your family for coming and I just wish you guys the best and I hope that your trip to Africa is just as much of a blessing to you as it is to them. I love you guys so much. Have a great day.
