Numbers 2:1-3:51, Mark 11:27-12:17, Psalms 47:1-9, Proverbs 10:24-25
Today is the 4th day of March welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian and it is great to be here with you today. Kind of a special day in my life. It’s my birthday and as I go through these years, I have determined that the best thing for me to do is to count my birthdays in Daily Audio Bible years, which means that this is the 18th birthday that I have experienced since the Daily Audio Bible began. I can’t believe I am finally an adult, at least in Daily Audio Bible and. And the Daily Audio Bible…wow…18 birthdays…and every day in between all of them has been spent here around the Global Campfire. And I don’t…it’s kind of hitting me hard this year, not in a bad way…just in this awareness, like…wow we’ve really…really dedicated our lives to this for a very long time and it’s changed life irreversibly to be in the Scriptures every single day for all of these years. And I look forward to as many years…to the next 18. And, so, let's…let’s dive in and enjoy our adulthood together as we take the next step forward together in the Scriptures. And we just are getting moved in…just starting the book of Numbers. We began it yesterday, which is where we will pick up the story today. We’re reading from the New International Version this week, which is today. Numbers chapters 2 and 3.
Father, we thank You for that assurance in proverbs, when the storm has swept by the wicked are gone but the righteous stand firm forever. So often we think when the storm comes, we’re trying not to be the ones that get swept away, but You are saying the righteous stand firm forever. We aren’t righteous. We can’t stand firm forever, but You are righteous and in You and through You we are made righteous. And, so, we thank You that when the storms blow through, we remain. And I personally thank You for that Lord. I publicly thank You for that truth. Over the course of…well now moving into this through this 18th year there have been plenty of storms as all of us have experienced over the course of the last 18 years. We’ve faced things that we didn’t know were coming. We’ve faced things that we knew were coming. We’ve faced things from all directions and some of those things felt like they blew us away but we’re still here. We’re still here. We’re still standing. Day by day step-by-step we continue moving forward and we thank You for Your faithfulness and Your patience with us because were it not for these we would not be standing here, none of us. Without an anchor in You and without an anchor in the Scriptures we would be blowing in the storm. And, so, thank You Father for Your faithfulness to us even when we were not faithful to You. But day by day step-by-step You are transforming us, and we are being transformed. We are being put back together again. And You are inviting us into Your work of putting all things back together again so that all things are made new. Come Holy Spirit and help us to remember what we’re doing here. We pray this in the mighty name of Jesus and by His authority. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
This is Saved by His Grace and Happy Valley. Last week our faithful prayer warrior Treasure to Treasurer call in and she seldom calls into ask to prayers for herself, but she said she felt like she was in an arena with lions and with Satan and his pitchfork. And all week I’ve been praying that, like Daniel God would close the mouth of the lions and would turn Satan’s pitchfork to rubber. But she’s called in her prayer request of today February 25th. She’s asking for prayer specifically for her daughter Trisha who for whatever reason does…no longer wants to live. And oh, Father I know the…the bond between a mother and daughter is so strong. If my daughter were hurting like that I would…I would rattle the gates of heaven to get answers and help for her. Please join me in prayer. Heavenly Father please be with Trisha. You know what’s going on with her. Please give her the will to live. Let her know how much her mother adores her and loves her. Please help Trisha and let Trisha…Trisha know that she is in Your care and she’s fine. Please Lord. Thank You. In Jesus’ name.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible, wonderful friends and family this is the Woman at the Well formerly known as One Penny Saved from southwest Missouri and I just felt compelled to call in. I had promised that I would call in with more encouraging words for those who are going through coming out of addiction. And I have been fully delivered and I’ve told my story, that my one consistent in my life for 17 years or 16 years was listening to Daily Audio Bible. And yes, the word did heal me. And while I can’t tell you how because I tried so many avenues to find healing, I can’t tell you how the word healed me I just know it did. And, so, my encouragement is to those who are in the grips of torment and agony and self-hatred, self-loathing, fear, all of those things, self-condemnation. My word to you today is as you are being delivered. You will find freedom. It sneaks up on you. Isn’t that crazy. It really does. And, so, I’m just giving you encouragement to hang in there. And then when you do begin to find healing you will still have the law of you reap what you sow. So, do not be discouraged that bad seed will still be harvested but good seed is being planted. So, I’m just giving you love and encouragement and prayers. All of you who are trying to find freedom don’t give up. Love you.
Hi, it’s Donna from California let’s lift up Trisha the daughter of…I’m not sure if you’re recalling yourself from Junk to Treasure again or from Treasure to Treasure but our treasured sister her daughter Tricia who does…who has revealed to her mother that she doesn’t want to live anymore. Lord Jesus please, please just invade this this young woman’s heart. Invade her with Your truth and with Your love. Let her know how precious she is, that You are…You are her God and that she is Your daughter and that she is precious in Your sight and that her life is important, and more than that it has purpose. Her life has purpose. There is so much that You have for her that You want to bless her abundantly and that You want to bless others through her. May whatever it is, and You know what this is Lord, You know what it is, may whatever she is going through be turned to be a mighty, mighty testimony. May You use whatever hurt or pain or trials, whatever it is, we know that You can use it all when a person turns to You. So, let’s pray. We pray that Trisha turns to You and embraces Your truth, that she seeks her identity in You, that she seeks her everything in You and may her mom be comforted with the peace that passes all understanding. We love You.
I was glad when they said unto me let us go into the house
of the Lord
I was glad because in God’s presence I’m very much adored
He fills me with joy and surrounds me with peace
my patience self-control and faith all increased
and as I burden my heart with its worries and cares and seek His direction in all my affairs
He provides me with a shalom after I pray that takes all my fears and anxieties away
and then He fills me to overflowing with His sweet Holy Spirit
and I’m humbled and very much honored that He has allowed me to draw near it
and then explosions of love seem to break out all over the place
showering me with favor mercy and grace
I pray for godly wisdom to always cherish this place
so richly abundant and mercy and grace
and that’s why when they say unto me let’s go to the House of the Lord
I become very happy because I know that’s the place where I’m very much adored
email@example.com. I’d like to give a shout out to Alfio in California and Victoria Soldier. Know you both are and my thoughts often and being prayed for daily. And once again Brian and the Hardin family thank you for this wonderful podcast for God’s Holy Spirit to flow. Keep it flowing y'all.
Work in progress this is Stew from Irvine CA. I am praying for you brother for your daughter that is having such incredible difficulty right now in her situation. I pray that the words of God that are written in her heart and that were embellished by listening to the Daily Audio Bible are able to take root at this most appropriate time and that her sister too will have an opportunity to help in that intercession. It seems like she’s the one that has had contact and I could just imagine this. I have two daughters probably similar age as yours and this really connects with me. I wanted to offer this prayer. Heavenly Father, guide this daughter of Yours back into Your arms. Give her the discernment to see and the wisdom to understand that she’s dearly loved by Jesus. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
