Genesis 28:1-29:35, Matthew 9:18-38, Psalms 11:1-7, Proverbs 3:11-12
Today is the 13th day of January. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and it is a pleasure and an honor to be here with you as we greet a new week and together we stand at the threshold and turn the knob and step through into a shiny and sparkly, new one. And like every brand-new week, it’s out in front of us. And, so, everything that has gone before is something that is now a part of our past and here we are, but we’re looking into the future and how we live into it, right? Like, I mean, if last week was chaos and everything is blown apart in some of your relationships, I mean, that can be perpetuated into this new week or we can just decide that we don’t have to live that way anymore, we can make things right and move forward peacefully as we continue with the rhythm of the Scriptures and allowing God to pull us forward, away from all of our pride and arrogance and all of the things that are lower and less than we were created to be and we can live into all that God has for us. So, it’s a shiny, sparkly, new week and we’ll read from a shiny, sparkly, new translation. This week we’ll read from the New Living Translation and we’ll pick up where we left off in the book of Genesis with the story of Isaac and Rebekah and their children Jacob and Esau. Today Genesis chapter 28 and 29.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You for this, the beginning of a new week and we look forward to all that You will speak to us through Your word in this week and we pray, Holy Spirit come, we remain open to You because we can hear Your word and not do it or we can hear Your word and allow ourselves to be open and allow You to lead us and transform us. And, so, this is our hearts posture and I we commit to this, we open ourselves to You Holy Spirit into this new week lead and guide us we pray in all of our conversations, in all of our relationships, in all of our choices and decisions, and all that is before us in thought, word and deed, we invite You come Holy Spirit we pray. In Jesus’ name we ask. Amen.
