Joshua 7:16-9:2, Luke 16:1-18, Psalms 82:1-8, Proverbs 13:2-3
Today is the 13th day of April. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is a pleasure and an honor to be here with you as we and another of the ever flowing weeks and coming to you from the More Gathering here at the top of Sharp Top mountain. At this point in the journey, even though it’s been a day really, a day and half, it feels like a week and a half and we’re kind of reaching the halfway point and moving through into the second half of our time together, which will end tomorrow. And yet it’s never anything short of profound. It’s beautiful to watch what God does in such a short amount of time by just offering Him some space, just giving Him some space in our lives. So, thank you for your continued prayers over all that’s happening here. And let’s finish this week well by taking the next step forward in the Scriptures. We’ve been reading from the New International Version this week and today we will continue the journey forward. If we remember yesterday, Jericho the first conquest, the city of conquest was taken but then the second battle for a small village named Ai was met with defeat. And, so, everyone’s trying to sort out what’s going on. Joshua chapter 7 verse 16 through 9:2 today.
Father, we thank You for another week. As we conclude today, we conclude another of our weeks together in the Scriptures. We thank You for bringing us this far. We thank You for all that You’ve done in our lives thus far in this year alone and we look with great anticipation for all that You have yet to do as Your word washes into our lives each and every day. So, as we release this week and allow it to become a part of our history and look forward to the coming week we invite Your Holy Spirit’s here on to this mountaintop where the More Gathering is taking place. Holy Spirit we thank You for all that You are doing and what You will continue to do in this time. And as we move into the new week and all of us prepare to make our ways back to our homes we ask for Your mercy over the travel, over the stamina, over health, and over all that You are planting in our lives. But we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. That’s not until tomorrow. So, we want to be here, now and invite You fully. Come Holy Spirit into this day, no matter where we may be on this planet we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
dailyaudiobible.com is the website, its home base, its where you find out what is going on around here.
I’ve been mentioning that the More Gathering is happening around here. So, thank you for your continued prayers over this time. There is an awful lot of moving parts that go into an event like this. So, thank you for your prayers.
If you want to partner with the Daily Audio Bible in the mission that we share together to bring the spoken word of God read fresh every day to anyone who will listen to it anywhere on this planet any time of day or night. And we achieve that every day. Someone’s always listening to the Daily Audio Bible, you can pretty much never listen…I don’t think you can ever listen to the Daily Audio Bible alone no what time of day or night it is. That’s our mission. And our mission is to build community around that rhythm so that it becomes a part of our lives as we move forward, and year-by-year are transformed completely. And I can look back over the years that I’ve been involved here and say I am nowhere near the same person I was and you may have been here a year, two years, five years, eight years, whatever and you can say the same thing and this may be your first year. This is your first, April 13th being here but you can look back toward the beginning of the year and see. Somehow the Bible, it speaks to the deepest places inside of us. That’s our mission to continue to offer it and build community around it. And if that brings life to you then thank you for your partnership. There’s a link on the homepage at dailyaudiobible.com.

And, as always, if you have a prayer request or comment 877-942-4253 is the number to dial.
And that is it for today. I’m Brian I love you and I’ll be waiting for you here tomorrow.
Community Prayer and Praise:
This call is for Victoria Grace out of Houston first-time caller and pretty new listener. This is Candace from Oregon. Thank you so much for calling. I was just really hurt along with you that you did not get to meet your biological father and that you had made a plan to meet him this summer with your brother but then a couple days later he passed away. That’s just really painful and I’m so sorry…I’m so sorry. May God heal your heart and bring you unexpected comfort. You are innocent, and the enemy really, really tries to use these kinds of things to bring guilt and shame, but you are…you are completely innocent so keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus. Thank goodness it’s the time of year when we celebrate His life and death and resurrection on our behalf. He’s got you covered my beautiful sister and just know that we’re praying for you and please call in again sometime. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face shine upon you and give you peace.
Hi, everyone my name is Maria. I’ve been listening to the Daily Audio Bible now since January when a friend introduced me to it and I just want to say that this has been such an incredible part of my day to start out each morning. It’s so encouraging and also humbling just listening to everybody’s stories and prayer requests and just getting to hear the word each morning. So, thank you Brian and Jill and everybody else on the team who makes this possible. I just wanted to say that, and I was just encouraged to call in because I feel like I often don’t ask for things when I need it and I could just use some prayer right now for __ His guidance and an opportunity to work closer to home to be closer to my husband and my daughter who is now eight months old. I really just would love to be able to see them more and not have to commute so far. It would be amazing to one day become a stay at home mom and God willing if that happens it would be such a blessing but I could just use a prayer for that right now if you guys think of it and I appreciate your time. Thank you everybody. I want you all to know that when you call in those prayers are all being answered in God’s timing and I’m praying for all of you. Thank you. Have a blessed day. Bye.
