Today is the 1st day of September. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is great to be here with you as we step across the threshold and into a brand new month. And the journey continues forward Yeah, and this evening the Daily Audio Bible Family Reunion begins, so we’re excited about that. It’s gonna be a lot of fun. But that’s later and this is now. And we have come to take the next step forward in the Scriptures. And today we will conclude the book of Job. We’re reading from the God’s Word translation this week, which is what we’ll do. Job 40, 41 and 42 today.
Father, as we enter into a new month and conclude the book of Job, we are reminded once again of Your power, Your sovereignty, Your justice, Your goodness that is far beyond anything we can comprehend. We confess we have found ourselves like Job asking all kinds of questions. Hidden within those questions are all kinds of accusation. So we take the counsel found in Job and we shut up. We put our hands over our mouths and confess that we’ve said things that we don’t know anything about. We put our trust in You and You alone. You are holy and righteous and You have brought us to Yourself through our savior Jesus as sons and daughters. You are our Father and You are a good father. And, yes, certainly we may encounter situations in our lives that don’t make sense to us. We may find situations in our lives where we have to endure long, but You are our Father and we love You and we trust You and we know that this story is going somewhere. And we will walk this life with You and spend eternity in Your presence. And so we repent, we apologize for the things we’ve accused You of that You had nothing to do with. For the things that we’ve accused You of that we didn’t know what we were talking about. We love You. We humble ourselves before You. We invite Your Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth. We pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Community Prayer and Praise:
Hey family. It’s Mike from New York. I’m going to be quick about this because it’s a lot. I’ve been praying for the past month and half whether to stay in New York City and attempt to grow with my church and business out here or to move to Hawaii and to jump into medical missions with __ and attempt again to do it full time as a life’s calling. Just yesterday, I had a meeting with the pastor at a new church plant we’re doing and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be for leadership or something else. Sadly, it was something else. I ended up getting kicked out of my dinner party, which is like a small group and I just feel really rejected. The reason I feel it’s quite unjust and I feel it’s sin on other persons parts, not to actually confront me, but you know what it happened and I am attempting to submit to authority even though I fully disagree with it. But I feel rejected and I’m depressed and angry and I generally don’t know how to handle that. I know biblically were supposed to go to the person and then bring it up the chain of command. But yeah, yeah, it’s kind of like most people don’t want to do that and they run from it and they’re afraid of conflict. So, I’m not sure if this is a sign from God to leave, if it’s kind of like, you know, hey, you know, it’s not working here, bounce or if it’s an attack from the devil to make me want to leave. Yeah, pray for me just for this and what to do and how to do it and not to let emotion get me down, how to not with depression rule over me. Because when I feel rejection from other believers man, which I do a lot, I really want that love. It hurts me, it crushes my spirit. So, please pray for me. All right man. Love you guys. And I will hear you what I hear you. Love ya.
Hello DAB. This is Joy from Florida, __ from Florida. I’m so confused I don’t even know my name anymore. Things are good. I am trying to…still trying…still trying to piece my life together…still trying to understand and accept that my husband is gone. I have planned for being at the family reunion. My problem is that I have to go right to the town that he’s at with his new significant other. He’s not been mean to me. I’ve…he just left __ about being me…I don’t know. I do realize that he was a help to me, that the time…the time that we spent together, the seven years that we spent together…he helped me. I went through cancer. I went to a heart attack. I went through my mother being disabled for a while and he was always there. He stood by me. And now I’ve thrown all that away and it’s back to the drinking and the depression and the loneliness and feeling sorry for myself. And I know, I know it’s the same old story, same old story. I’m trying so hard. But anyway…guys…I know my time is almost up. I love you. I’ll see you this weekend. Pray for me.
Hi all. This is the Mystic Man from Cincinnati. I call today to request prayer for a family that my wife and her sister were very close with when they were in high school going through youth group. A guy that they went to youth group with, his wife had left him and his two kids a few weeks ago and we just find out last night that he had committed suicide. So, just prayers for his family and his kids. That’s just so rough, unbelievable. But, just, on top of that, I feel like there’s been so much attack from Satan especially in this country through suicide. I don’t know what the deal is. Maybe it’s a fluke but it just seems like there’s so many stories, people…more mental health disorders and trouble and anxiety and depression and I just…we just feel like Satan is really attacking us through suicide. So, Margo, thank you for starting your prayers for mental health. It’s wonderful. So, I’m just going to see quick prayer here before my times up. Father, You are a holy and we love You. We need Your protection in this country Father. There are so many people hurting father, feel like there alone, that they have nothing left, no purpose, no hope. Father, we know that there is hope in You and Your son Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross for us. So, thank You so much. We love You in Jesus’ name. Amen. Be blessed you all.
My beautiful family. This is pastor Gene in Bradenton Florida. And I must confess that I struggle with pride and jealousy sometimes. When I’m close to Jesus those things take a second __ , sometimes the very very back row but when I am not, and sometimes even when I am __ issues, they rear their ugly head. But I’m a __ of Jesus and not of my sin. So, I declare it, I confess it and I declare that I have __ and more beautiful things to focus on. So, the things that I do not have or I those things that I’ve been deprived of from…I’m sorry. So, I let it go and I surrender life, my ambitions, my desires to our beautiful Savior. Please join me in prayer. Father, I thank you so much for our sister __ from Oklahoma praying for her who’s having constructive surgery. We pray that your healing hand will be upon her dad and that our sister will be encouraged in her trust in you. Father, we pray for our sister Hopeful. What a blessing that you allow her to have only a benign tumor. She wants to be pregnant and she says the chances are very, very small but you are the God of the impossible. So, father I pray in the glory of Your name that you will touch this sisters will and every __ will be able to rejoice with her in that victory. Father, I thank you for __ from Florida. I thank you so much for my brother for his encouragement. I pray for his own situation and I thank you for his powerful intercessions towards me and this community. Father we thank you for our sister Joy for her and her husband, the church planters who are going through a terrible trial. __ lift them up in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
