Isaiah 62:6-65:25, Philippians 2:19-3:3, Psalms 73:1-28, Proverbs 24:13-14
Today is October 1st welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian and it is wonderful to be here with you today as we end a week while beginning a month. So, here we are first day of the 10th month of the year 274th day of the year, which means 274 days ago we began our long journey, a year-long journey through life together, through the Scriptures together, every single book, every single paragraph, every single sentence, every single word and what a journey it has been, what a beautiful journey it has been, and what transformation has begun to take shape inside of us. And we have one quarter of the year left to go. So, we have plenty out in front of us, but we have plenty that we have covered already. And, so, it is wonderful to be here with you today as we begin this brand-new month of October. And whether it’s a brand-new month or a brand-new shiny sparkly week that we are entering into, we pick up where we left off. And that leads us back out into the territory of the book of Isaiah, which we have been reading for a bit now. We will actually conclude the book of Isaiah tomorrow. So, we are…we are rounding the corner on this prophetic book and will move forward after that, obviously, but we’ve still got a couple of days to spend with Isaiah. And, so, let’s dive in. We’ve been reading from the Good News Translation this week. Today Isaiah chapter 62 verse 6 through 65 verse 25.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You for bringing us to the conclusion of another week together. Ans as we conclude this week, we are beginning this brand-new 10th month of the year and we consecrate this to You. We consecrate our hearts and ourselves to You in this brand-new month that is a shiny and brand-new gift that You are giving us day by day, moment by moment, a gift to be in Your presence, a gift to walk this life together with You. And we confess as we have so often, so much of the time we’re not paying attention. We’re cast to and frow. We’re running around from thing to thing to thing keeping the plates spinning trying to keep anything bad from happening to us when You have invited us into rest and instructed us that You will care for us. And we confess we make our own messes and then ask You to come and care for us when You have invited us away to walk with You and avoid so many of these pitfalls. You have invited us into a spacious place where we can see what is going on and not be tied to all of the things, we attach ourselves to. And, so, as we walk into this month we want to walk in freedom and that might mean that we have to let some of the plates fall. That might mean we have to listen to You so that we know what is actually going to be important in this final quarter of the year. Holy Spirit come lead us into all truth we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Good morning Daily Audio Bible family this is the first time I’ve called in and I’ve been listening to Daily Audio Bible for many, many, many years since the beginning. Today it’s a beautiful day. I’m sitting outside and I am listening to the palm trees being trimmed and the sun is shining on my face, but my heart is grieved for a family that lives close by that their 22-year-old daughter Jolisa Fontes has been…gone missing. This family is a very, very tight believing loving family and they’re grieving and I’m asking you to join me in prayer for this young girl and that…and this family that this young girl would be found, that she would be found safe. And that Lord, we lift her up to You because we know You love her more than we could ever love her. Our hearts are grieving, grieving for this family. So, DABbers thank you so much for hearing the call of my heart for this family for this young girl and for all those that are missing loved ones.
Good morning DAB family it is September 26th this is __ in southeastern Washington, Princess Warrior of God. I’m listening to Daily Audio Bible. Thank you, Brian, Jill the whole Hardin family for this ministry that allows us to read and listen to God’s holy word on a daily basis. It has been in my life since 200…2008 on a daily basis and I thank you so much again. I heard a prayer request from a young lady…a lady in Norway who is seeking God for answers and was told that she needs to get married. Just…just keep praying to God and let God speak to you. Let His words speak to you. God knows everything that…that you’re ever going to want to know. He has you put your trust in him. He will never leave you or forsake you. His promises are true. So, keep…keep praying to Him. Read the word of God. Listen. Be quiet before Him and listen to Him. He may talk to you through a song. He may talk to you through someone who…who’s been praying and…and will give you a word. But He’s amazing. He is there for you. Never ever forget that. God is there for you. He has everything that you’re gonna need, every answer that you’re going to ask. God is with you. and I will be praying for you. God bless you. God, bless you DAB family. And remember God is in control. Bye.
This is John Ransom calling from Budapest. Today is the 26th of September and a young man called in and was wondering how he could tell his story in two minutes and then you bared your heart, and you really touched me. I can really relate to some of the things you said. So, I wanted to share with you. First of all, you’re here and you’re talking to us and you’re listening to the word of God. So, that is wonderful because those seeds from the word of God go right into your heart, and they start changing everything and they give you discernment and revelation and most of all they show you how much God loves you. And secondly you know doubting Thomas was there and he was the one who wasn’t around when everybody else got the great reveal. But later Jesus remembered him and said, you know, here I am and don’t doubt anymore. But, you know, my experience is that our struggles and our doubts are totally legitimate, and this is where God really reveals himself. You know, the famous words of Jesus word anyone who wants to become a Christian is “follow me.” You know, follow me and honesty and ask me to forgive your sins and just let me know that you want to spend the rest of your life with me and let’s go on this great adventure together. So, He also said it’s like becoming as a little child. So, just become a little more childish, a little less complicated. Just leave it to Him. But just say yes, I want to go over that hill with you that’s ahead of us. I wanna go deep in the value with you. I just want you by my side and the rest will take care of it. So, Father in the name of Jesus I thank You for this young man and I pray that You would reveal Your Son to him and Lord Jesus that he would have a deep and intimate relationship with You through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Amen.

I just…put you…found you on my smart speaker and my ears picked up at the lady in Canada who’s having trouble with her marriage, the lady who called in about __ with a broken shoulder because I broke my shoulder last year and it was the worst pain ever. I felt like I was being electrocuted. And it was just like I was meant to hear you. I…my marriage my husband left me in September last year and I’m having to move out of my motor home in a few weeks and I’m praying that God will stir his heart and stir his mind and reconcile our marriage. I love him very much. We had a problem. He had an affair and then I couldn’t forgive him quickly enough. A few years I was still struggling with it, but I’ve…I’ve forgiven him now and I…I just I pray today for God to reconcile our marriage and I reach out to you. If you would do the same thing. I pray for all the people I’ve just heard here and the man who’s been godly and has been in an accident. I pray for all of you because God wants us all to be saved. And I receive the prayer for my marriage and __ back to me. Thank you and God bless.
Daily Audio Bible this is Rebecca from Michigan September 25th. I know it seems like I always have stuff together, but I don’t. I feel secluded by people. I feel rejection sometimes. I have a hard time handling rejection. When people say things inappropriate, I have no idea what they’re talking about because I don’t know what inappropriate is. Because I haven’t been going to church. I’ve been going to church online since COVID, and I just don’t feel at home at churches because when COVID happened I would have to sit by myself because I wasn’t part of a family. So, I felt isolated, and I can’t handle being isolated. So, I’d rather just stay by myself shut up and a building in my room than be isolated by people. And I go to work so I can be around people. I go to stores so I can be around people, but some things people have done to me I just have a hard time getting past it. And I’ve had some bad things happen to me and I know it’s my problem. It’s not nobody elses problem but I’ve been trying to ask God to help me but get past this certain __ and then COVID came along and then I said something inappropriate somebody said. So, I don’t know. I’m just…I know it seems like I have it all together. I keep working on my Bible reading…
