Today is the 27th day of January. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and, of course, it’s a pleasure and an honor as it is every day to be here with you. And here we are, at the threshold of a shiny, sparkly, brand-new week and we’ll get to step into it together and live into it together and allow God’s word to speak to us in all things. And, so, this week we’ll read from the Common English Bible and we’re just kind of really getting ourselves going in the story of Moses and we’ll be traveling with Moses for quite a while. So, we’re just geting to know him pretty well, we’re getting to know his story. We’ll go back into the book of Exodus and pick up where we left off yesterday, Exodus chapter 4 verse 1 through 5:21 today.
Father, we thank You for this new week. And we joke about it being shiny and sparkly every time we come to a new week, but it’s not really a joke, it’s true, it’s brand-new. it hasn’t been lived into yet. And, so, we’re stepping into this new week and we’re inviting You because we don’t want to make any decisions that we haven’t counselled with You on and we don’t want the thoughts that would pull us away from You to dominate our week this week, and we don’t want our actions to not reflect Your kingdom. And, so, we need You, and we invite You because this may be a shiny, sparkly, new week, but in order for this week to remain sparkly we’ll have to live into it and make it sparkle and we cannot do that without You. So, come Holy Spirit we pray into all that is coming our way in the coming week. May we reflect Your glory upon the earth and reveal Your kingdom in all of our thoughts, words and deeds we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hey daily Audio Bible family, this is Broderick from Indiana. I’m just calling in today. I believe it was Margo from Australia and…gee…you just called in and you were asking for prayers for just discernment and just having some hard times with just facing maybe some home sickness or some jet lag and I just want to give this word of encouragement to you or to anyone else that’s just really having a hard time with going into the work or the area of your life that God’s calling you to where we’re being persecuted for it or where He’s just calling us to do difficult things. And when you called in you reminded me of, I think it’s the parable of the seller, Matthew chapter 13 verses 1 through 23. I just think this is a really cool parable because it just really shows a great picture of like what the stages of what our faith goes through sometimes. And I just wanted to remind you of that and just have you take heart in that and I just wanted to encourage you and anyone else who’s going through the same thing and let all you guys know that I’m praying for you and I really love this family community that has…
Hello Daily Audio Bible family this is Stephanie from Colorado. I’m a longtime listener and first-time caller. I am so thankful for this community, it’s been so life-giving for the past six years for me. So, I’m calling in today just to encourage anyone who has been struggling with infertility. It’s a very, very, difficult thing. My husband and I prayed for a baby for two years and month after month it was just two weeks of heartbreak and then two weeks of hoping and the cycle just repeated. And, you know, in the meantime all of our friends and all our family members were announcing pregnancies. And it’s tough, it’s so hard, so hard. So, so right now I just want to speak to God’s faithfulness. We prayed for two years and I have a beautiful five-month-old able and feeding food right now and that to me is just a miracle. It’s just a miracle that he’s here and God is so faithful, God is so good. So, don’t give up. I know it’s so hard, don’t give up. Don’t stop saying, don’t stop speaking, and don’t stop being faithful. Don’t lose hope because God is so good, and I just want to encourage you today. Be blessed.
Hello guys, my name is Aaron, I’m 20 years old. This is my first year doing the Daily Audio Bible and today Brian was talking about the story of Joseph and reflecting on how we can enter in seasons of testing with the mindset that God is good and knowing that He is doing something in that. And it had me reflecting back on a time in my life not too long ago when I lost my father to cancer. And it was a very hard time in my life and the lives of my families who always serve the Lord, and everybody took it differently. My sister kind of had the mindset that if God took her dad she would be done with God. And I looked at things a little differently, that God was trying to do something and although it hurt, I was going to trust Him to show me what it was that He was trying to do. And because of that the life of my dad was able to bless a lot of people and turn a lot of hearts toward Christ. And it was such a powerful experience that I’ll always remember. So, I just want to encourage everybody. God is good and is always on your side and He has your best interest in mind all the time. God bless everybody. Take care. Goodbye.
Hi everyone, this is Sarah from Pennsylvania. I was just listening to the reading on the 20th and I heard God’s Light requesting prayer, was just diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, having a lot of trouble. I am a fellow MS suffer and I actually called in last summer when I was diagnosed, and I felt hopeless a lot of the times. I felt just like you. I was terrified, but God got me through it and I won’t say that I never felt hopeless because that’s not true, I absolutely did, but that hope always came back and I know it will for you too. I’m praying for you, praying for understanding for your girlfriend, for a capable medical team. And just know that you are valuable no matter what your disability is, what your condition is, where you are in this disease. You are valuable and worthy of life and just please don’t end that. Praying for you. Love you. Good luck. Call back in and keep us updated.
Hey DAB brothers and sisters, this is Byron out in Florida. I’m calling for Keisha in Maryland. Keisha, I heard you call and the concern that you and your husband have about being able to pay your mortgage and how you needed some money, miracle you said to be able to settle that. And I could hear the stress and pain in your voice. I just want to let you know that I’m praying for ya and that is gonna be okay. It reminded me of the story of Elijah being sent to the land and Zarephath. And he runs upon a window who tells him that since there’s a famine in the land she’d gonna make a small cake for her and her son. They need it because they’re gonna die. That’s where she’s at. And I think the words that Elijah gives next to the widow are directed to you too. He said, “don’t be afraid.” Don’t be afraid. God’s got you, you’re going to be all right. It’s going to be all good. And I encourage you, if you have some money that you do have available, find a way to give. If you haven’t been giving up to this point, go ahead and give and see how God shows up for you. Worship God in your giving. I went through bankruptcy last year, it was not fun but the one thing God taught me through that is that if you have love you are not bankrupt, you have the love of Jesus. So, live like it and worship Him and see how He comes through. See how He gives you that peace that transforms your reliance from needing a little bit of money to having His abundant love. So, I’m praying for you. Be strong, it’s going to be okay. Love you.
Hi audio Daily Bible family this is can Kanesha out of Atlanta. I’m calling for, I believe it was, Julie. I heard your prayer request for your babies. Sounds like they were premature or they’re in NICU and one has a surgery coming up. So, I just wanted to let you know that your prayer request…I heard your prayer request and it touched my heart because I too am a parent of a premature baby, he’s now eight. But it is an emotional roller coaster that we go through when they are in the hospital and we have to leave them there in the NICU unit. And, so, I was just calling in to let you know that I am praying for you and your family and also that it was good to hear the Prodigal and Dr. John call back in. I’m praying for you both as I pray for a lot of you. I just can’t remember everyone’s names. And also, I am asking for prayer again for my daughter. The last time I called in she was going through things where she had started using drugs and alcohol. Well, there was an accident where the vehicle hydroplaned. And, of course, she’s okay, but in the midst of all of that she had to try to get help while they were on the highway and there were police involved and even though she wasn’t drunk or like that or anything, she passed her breathalyzer and all of that. In some kind of way, she got charged with DUI. Drugs, I’m not sure. And, so, I’m just asking for prayer for when she goes to court the charges are dismissed because she didn’t have anything on her, she was the designated driver. We just don’t know why the officer padded her charges but…
