Lamentations 4:1-5:22, Hebrews 2:1-18, Psalms 103:1-22, Proverbs 26:23
Today is the 31st day of October. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is a joy to be here with you today on the final day of the 10th month and the 304th day of our year together. So, we spent the last several days kind of transitioning. We were moving into new territory in the Old Testament and we were also were moving into new territory in the New Testament. Now we’re kind of settled in for a minute as we got ourselves going in the book of Lamentations in the Old Testament and the book of Hebrews in the New So, we’re finishing the month strong and preparing to move into the new month with the wind at our back, with a little bit of momentum. So, we’re reading from the Amplified Bible this week. Today, Lamentations, chapters 4 and 5 and we will be reading the lamenting poem of the siege of Jerusalem.
Father once again as we end our day, the proverb smacks us between the eyes about the things that we say and the way in which we use words and language. And today we are told not to be manipulative, not to be murmuring. And, so, oh Father we need Your help. And we get help actually from the psalm that we read today, the beautiful words of Your abiding love for us, and the awareness that when we use our God-given lips and tongue that You have given us for purposes that do nothing but tear down Your kingdom and bring darkness, well then we are paying no attention whatsoever to Your abiding love and patience for us. And, so we ask forgiveness and we pick up the refrain in the Psalm that we might bless You. And we confess, hearing the phrase bless the Lord, like, this is all throughout the Scriptures and this is something that we say but we don’t stop to think about what we’re saying, that we can be a blessing to You, to Your heart by following Your will and Your ways, which is also the very best possible thing we could do for ourselves. And, so, forgive us again for the ways we’ve misused words. May we be a blessing to You today. We ask this in the name of Jesus, knowing that we’re not capable of any of this stuff in our own strength. We need Your Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, that we might collaborate in life with You and that that may last You today. Come Holy Spirit into this we pray. In the name of Jesus we ask. Amen.
