1 Chronicles 4:5-5:17, Acts 25:1-17, Psalms 5:1-12, Proverbs 18:19
Today is the 7th day of July. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is awesome, it’s wonderful to be here with you today. Today is the Daily Audio Bible Long Walk, so hello to all of you long walkers. I imagine that a few of you are listening to the Daily Audio Bible as you walk. It’s good to be here with you on your long walk. And if you’re doing it later or you’ve already done it, looking forward to that. To just look (in on) all that. We’ll talk about all this in a little bit because we have more important things to do. And the most important thing we can do here right now is to center ourselves in the Scriptures and take the next step forward. So we’ve been reading from The Voice translation this week. Of course, today is the end of a week, so we’ll read from something else beginning tomorrow. But we’ll pick up where we left off. 1 Chronicles 4:5-5:17 today.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for another week that we’ve been able to spend in Your word. We thank You for this new month. We thank You for bringing us here to the center of the year. So, Father, we commit ourselves to You, to finishing strong, to going through the second half of this year with more intention and awareness than we’ve ever had in our lives because Your word continues to orient us to You. Father, today is a special day in this community and a tradition that we have around here to go for a long walk. And so many of us are doing that. Come, Holy Spirit, as we open ourselves to You and share our hearts with You. We want to hear Your heart. Father, we realize that taking this kind of time and being able to talk like this, well this is just gonna make us hunger and thirst for it more and more. And You’ll bring up things, things that we need to let go of, things that we need to forgive, things that we need to ask forgiveness for, changes of directions. All things that our lives contain You want to be involved in so we invite You into all of it. Come Holy Spirit. Lead us into all truth. That’s what we want is to walk in the light of truth on the narrow path that leads to life. And so we are centering ourselves in You and orienting ourselves to You and inviting Your Holy Spirit to lead us forward. Come Jesus, we pray. In Your mighty name we ask. Amen.
dailyaudiobible.com is the website, its home base, it’s where you find out what’s going on around here.
Of course, today is the Daily Audio Bible Long Walk. We’ve been talking about this for a couple weeks. And so many of us are doing that. Many of you are listening while you’re doing that. Maybe some of you are like, I wasn’t gonna do it, but now I am and you go for a walk around the block. That’s fine. But just go for a walk with God. Find some time, somewhere beautiful today. Spend some time centering yourself and re-centering yourself as we move into the second half of the year. And what makes this communal is that wherever you go, whatever you do, just snap a picture, take a little video. Post that back up to the Daily Audio Bible Facebook page, which can be found at facebook.com/dailyaudiobible. And then we will be able to enjoy each other’s long walks and look through these little windows into each other’s lives and into what your day looked like. So I look forward to that every July 7th, and today will be no different. So make sure to post up your picture.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hello DAB listeners. This is Michael from North Georgia. I wanted to call and give praise report about my wife. First of all, I’d like to thank every single one of you guys for praying for my wife. She is now finally on the road to recovery. After nine months of testing and not being able to figure out what is wrong with her they finally did a biopsy of her right lung in three places, sent it out, and turns out, from sending samples, I guess, to the Mayo Clinic, wherever that is, that she has a extremely rare form of vasculitis. It normally doesn’t show up on a vasculitis test. It came back negative. But, at least, praise God now we know exactly what’s wrong and therefore they have a target and can start giving her different types of medicine to help her recover from whatever this is. From what I understand it’s an autoimmune disease, possibly could have been inherited. Not really sure about that. Her mom’s pretty healthy. Her dad was killed in a car wreck at 21 years old. So, we don’t really have a low lot go by from that standpoint. But we are claiming healing in the name of Jesus. Thank you so much for your prayers. She is starting to feel a lot better. Hopefully she’ll be returning to work soon with her business. That’s what she ultimately wants to be able to do in another week. Thank you guys so much for praying for her. It is such a blessing to see God’s work being done in her life. And because of all your prayers as well. Thank you so much for everything that you have done. God bless you guys. Have a blessed day and we love you.
Hi DAB. This is Laura Lee in Boynton Beach. I’d like to ask for a prayer request for my neighbor. Join me in prayer lease. I’d like to pray for her on her behalf. Heavenly Father, thank You for Linda Ray. Thank You for all the opportunities in our relationship as neighbors to glorify You in her presence. I thank You for allowing me to serve her in so many ways. Lord, You know all the details about her circumstances right now and I know You’ve been knocking on the door to her heart. Today, help me express what You would have me say to her. Holy Spirit, fill me with what she will hear. I pray a breakthrough the fog of medication and indifference with Your glory. Stun her and give her a Damascus Road experience. Let her in to an intermittent relationship with You. Penetrate her heart of stone and kiss her soul to life and melt the walls of resistance. She’s afraid of love, afraid of feeling, afraid of change. And each of these fears, they are lies about Your heart. Tell her the truth. And Your grace and truth is her freedom. Lord, You love her more than I ever could and I thank You ahead of time in the name of Jesus. Amen. Thank you all.
Hi. This is Cherry Pie from the Tulsa Oklahoma area, of specifically Claremore. I’ve __ this call many times. I can’t keep it under two minutes. So, I’m just going to do this. It’s July the 5th. I heard Victoria’s message and from Arizona, Alabama. And I’m like her in the fact that, I am just being hit by so many things all at once that my head is spinning. I’m so sorry, here we go. I got a job two years ago but I can only come back home twice a year and God gave it to me. I know I was to have it. He allowed me to do many things but ___ this marriage of 31 years will be final this coming August and it was very bad. And I’m exhausted. I’m, right now, I got back a couple days ago to home. It’s in my name. I made the payments bit __ as I have to share it with him. I have nothing from the divorce, just this home and now I want to __ in such peace and I…oh gosh…where do I go with this…there’s no air conditioning, there’s nothing, there’s no car. I’m stuck here for two weeks to move my stuff out. I just…I want to keep the home…I think I’ve got some leverage in that area maybe. I got to talk to a lawyer. But there’s just so many things. God knows. God can give you guys the Spirit of knowing how to pray for me. But I’m just exhausted. I need wisdom and peace. I need wisdom and peace on this stuff. So many decisions, you now, like the __ I just can’t really the details in two minutes but it’s been so long and intense that I just need favor, wisdom, peace, and God will show you guys the rest. I’ve been feeling…
Hello Daily Audio Bible. I am calling because I am struggling with smoking and I have gotten myself hooked after a long time break of smoking and I’m having a hard time breaking away even though I’ve had minor successes. I know that I am being compelled by God to stop smoking. I’m asking for your prayer for complete and utter deliverance and obedience to God in all areas of my life. I’m starting and ending my day with God. I’m getting back to listening to the Daily Audio Bible every day and I have plans of joining the long walk. Today is July 5th. Thank you so much for your prayers. And I thank God for each and every one of you. Thank you Brian and family for your obedience to God. Have a great day.
