Jeremiah 30:1-31:26, 1 Timothy 2:1-15, Psalms 87:1-7, Proverbs 25:18-19
Today is the 17th day of October. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It’s great, of course, to be here with you as it is every day that…that we step into the firelight of the global campfire and allow God’s word to speak to us and take the next step forward, not only in our journey with the Bible, but also our journey in life. So, it's…it’s a joy to take his next step forward together with you and we’ll be going back into the book of Jeremiah. Today chapter 30 verse 1 through 31 verse 26 and we’re reading from the New Living Translation this week.
Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for your kindness. We thank you for the way that your word speaks to us. Even as we read in Jeremiah today, so many of us have children who are wayward, and we’ve found ourselves concerned and it’s been a matter of prayer in the community here for us as long as we’ve been a community. And, so, this has always been an issue, but we read today, “your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future, says the Lord. Your children will come again to their own land”. And even though we know we’re reading prophetic words about bringing those from exile home this still seems so deeply to apply in our own lives and the relationships that have become wayward or have gone astray or have been lost. And, so, we pray Lord, for those…those who are in exile, those who once walked with you, but have in one way or another, walked away and walked right into their own captivity. Set them free Father. We pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Check out the Initiatives section of the website and you can see some of the different things that we have going on, like God of Your Story, but also Israel 2020. We’ll be going back to the land of the Bible this coming February and there are a small handful of spaces available on that trip just simply due to some cancellations. So, if going to the land of the Bible has been kind of something on your bucket list you may want to check that out. I know that it was actually never on my bucket list until I went and that just radically changed things, not in the way you might be thinking. It just…it made the Bible come alive. It just makes a difference to stand in a place that you’ve been reading about your whole life and, you know, imagining…just imagining the things that happened there. When you’re actually standing there and going, “that happened right…like this is a real place. This…this really happened” and just to feel the crunch of the…the earth beneath your feet and being able to turn in a circle, you know, just things that you can’t do when you’re looking at pictures or just the smells of the different places. Like, you just can’t get that any other way. So, yeah, we’ve been going back every year since, taking a pilgrimage each year, because it just…it does that. It makes the Bible…you can’t see the Bible same after that. So, anyway, there’s a…there’s a little handful of spots. So, if you wanna…if you wanna come along, check it out at dailyaudiobible.com in the Initiatives section.
