Isaiah 66:1-24, Philippians 3:4-21, Psalm 74:1-23, Proverbs 24:15-16
Today is October 2nd, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian and it is great to be here with you as we greet a brand-new week. I guess wow, we are greeting a brand-new month. So, all things are new here around the Global Campfire. So, it’s an exciting time, as we reset, and we launch into this month and continue our journey forward. And our foreword journey will lead us back into the book of Isaiah, for the last time actually, this year. We will conclude the book of Isaiah today. And this week we will read from the New International Version, so here we go, Isaiah chapter 66.
Father, we thank You for Your word, and we thank You for making all things new and that we have a direct reminder of that on this day, as we begin a brand-new week. And as we continue to begin a brand-new month and as we begin a brand-new quarter of the year, thank You for your faithfulness to us, even when we’ve been all over the place, You have been steadfast, thank You. You are our anchor. Our hope is in You and we welcome You with open hands and open hearts, as we navigate through the days of this month, asking, Holy Spirit, that You would continually remind us to be aware of what we’re doing and aware of Your presence in all things. May we see You at work, not only in our own lives, but in the world around us. And may we see that we have a place that we are Your hands and feet and that where we go, You are, and how we touch, can be a touch from You. Come, Holy Spirit, into all of this we pray, in the name of Jesus, we ask. Amen.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible family, this Jude in Maryland. I’m calling in for prayer request please, please help me pray to God to shake off this spirit of apathetic procrastination. I have so much to do, and I have some time to do it in. Although is not a lot of time but I have some time. But every time I try to turn to do what I’m supposed to, I just seem to laze about or put it off and I’m not getting anything done. And it’s holding me back from things that have wanted to do for years, for life. Big changes, big things and I just have no motivation, no energy, no discipline to get it done. So, please, towards my career, towards my life, towards home, everything. It’s even costing me money and it’s costing me opportunities, but I seem to have no ability to get up and do the things that I need to do, that are in front of me to do. That God has even presented me with an opportunity to do. Just seem to be in this funk and it’s not working. So, please family, pray with me that this…this spirit that is weighing me down like a wet blanket will lift from me, go from me and I’ll have the motivation to do the things that I’m supposed to do and that I’m responsible for doing. I hope everybody’s having a blessed day. And I love you all. Have a wonderful day.
Good morning, DAB, this is Laura in San Diego. I am calling to pray for Solest. Lord God, I just wanna lift up my sister Solest. She reached out for prayer, she’s fairly new to her faith and has a made a change in her life. And Lord, she is struggling to be all alone and wanting to see her kids and coming from a situation that’s been abusive. I just, I pray for Your grace and Your peace to fill her mind and heart, in Christ Jesus. I pray for Your Holy Spirit, to lift up her spirit. I pray Lord, that she would reach out to supportive people and be able to participate in the community of God, in a way that supports her and that doesn’t leave her alone. And I pray, for the strained relationships and her, and I just pray that she’d have a relationship with her kids in a positive way. And that she would learn those new paths and ways of talking and interacting. To always positive things to them and Lord, to let go of the things that people in abusive situations in households learn of hurting each other. Help her Lord, help her to let go of those things and when those things come at her, let them just slide off the armor of God and hit the floor and not penetrate her heart. And so, I lift up my sister. I know Lord, You’re leading her and I pray that she would feel Your presence so close. In Jesus name.
This is Diane Olive Brown and Jeff from Newburg, Indiana. And it is September 28th, Tuesday, 2022 about 610am central time. And this reading from the 28th has touched my heart so. Where Brian talks about a father, a good father, a good husband and Jesus representing all of us in all of our messes. And the last caller spoke of how she’s a new Christian and living in an abusive home with an abusive husband and people are throwing what she did into her face. And she’s sorry for what she did and she feels so alone. Honey, I’m gonna be praying for you every single day. You’re not alone. Jesus died for you, forgive yourself. He loves you, he never did anything wrong except love you and absorb all the things you did wrong. Go to Him, trust in Him, rest in Him, rest your head upon his breast and let Him heal you with His special balm of Gilead. Let it go warmly over your head and heal and restore you. But you have to get out of an abusive relationship. Find freedom. Get away from these people that keep condemning you.
Good morning DABers, this is John Opar and I’m calling in, I’m actually in Nairobi this morning. On my way, traveling to Nigeria. But I heard a young man, he didn’t way what his name. But he did mention that he has come to the conclusion that he’s not a Christian. And I’ve heard some other people struggling with their faith in the same way. I’m basically calling in to let these people, especially this young man that I’m referring to, that all God wants them to do at this time is to basically let Him love them. Let Him, love you. Stop struggling, stop trying to be something. Just allow Him to love you. That’s all that is required. God bless you. Bye Bye.
Hey, this is Pure Heart from Tennessee. And I wanted to pray for Connie from Guatemala, Washington. She just got the diagnoses of having pancreatic cancer. Father God, I pray for Connie right now. Lord, a hard diagnosis or difficult when we receive them. But Lord, I pray that You would give her peace that passes all understanding. I pray that You would let her feel that You are near, that Your Spirit would just overtake her and the regret and fear that she’s had about leaving her family would be dismissed because You are the one that has the final say over our lives. Father God, I thank You that You’ll bless her children to be part of Your comfort. And her husband, give him all exceedingly abundantly that You’re able to do, more than what we could ask or think. Jehovah just bless You. I know that You’re the one that causes healing. And like the woman with the issue of blood, Father God, I stand with Connie and we reach out and touch the hem of Your garment. And I say be whole, in Jesus name. Connie, you just stay encouraged and don’t let man’s word be your final thoughts. In Jesus name.
I’m gonna have to talk fast and there’s more that I want to say. But I will get into this message everything that I can. I wanna give you a scripture, Romans 12:4-6: But at the end of that, the amazing part that sticks out to me is, it says: each member belongs to all others. I ran from the DAB groups, deleted myself from some of the groups that I was in. The last post that I listened to on the DAB was June 17th. I have been going through some of the most hellish circumstances for months. Many huge problems with finances, home, family, friends, physical pain, disappointment and personal unanswered prayers. I have experienced bitterness, anger, frustration, resentment with myself, God, people, circumstances. I’ve been knocked off my feet. Picture a soldier in an open battlefield with the enemy closing in on all sides. You try to fight back but before you can defeat one blow, here comes one from behind that you couldn’t even see. And while you’re knocked down, several more arrows strike at the same time. Suffering from what seems to be like no hope, that anything could ever stop this mess, in my bloody, bruised and broken place, I feel like every ounce of my faith had run out. I want to escape and hide. In the war of Satan trying to get me to run from God, there are voices in the distance, all around, high up on the hills, with their battle cry, yelling out for me. Finally, for me. Who are they? It’s the DAB family church body. Fighting for me with their prayers up to God. I am in the tug of war with them trying to pull me back from the grips of Satan. Their encouraging words and private messages to me with their scripture shared, also in text messages, asking me to come back. We need you; we are here for you. It is amazing for that, and I want to thank each and all of the people who reached out to me and haven’t given up on me.
