Daniel 5:1-31, 2 Peter 2:1-22, Psalms 119:113-128, Proverbs 28:19-20
Today is the 28th day of November. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and it is great to be here with you today. Happy Thanksgiving…well…happy Thanksgiving to everybody in the whole world. I know it’s not Thanksgiving everywhere that…that you are, but here in the United States, today is Thanksgiving Day. So, happy Thanksgiving everybody. And yeah, let’s spend the day in the state of gratitude and thanks and let’s continue with the rhythm that we have every single day as we come around the Scriptures and allow God’s word to speak into our lives. We’re reading from the New International Version this week. And today, Daniel chapter 5.
Father, as we have a posture of gratitude, as we give thanks today, we certainly give thanks to You for Your word and we certainly give thanks to You for the community that You…that You’ve raised up around this rhythm of being involved in and interacting with Your word every single day. So, we are grateful, and we are thankful. And we are thankful for all that You have brought us through to get us to this point in the year and all that You have rescued us from through Your word and all that You have rescued us from in spite of ourselves, and in spite of our own actions. You are a good Father. No, You are a great Father. You are a perfect Father and our hearts are full of gratitude for Your involvement in our lives that You would even be mindful of us as the Psalms say, is beyond our comprehension. So, we are deeply grateful to You for all that You have done and all that You are doing and all that You have yet to do within us. We thank You and we praise You for who You are. We love You Father and we pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Today in United States…this is a pretty major national holiday for us called Thanksgiving. It’s a day of gratefulness and thanksgiving. And, so, happy Thanksgiving…happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I suppose, like I was saying earlier, it’s Thanksgiving, we can give thanks all over the world every day, for in the life of a believer it should be Thanksgiving Day. This is just a day that’s commemorated here in…in our country. So, happy Thanksgiving to everybody. This is also kind of a transitional…it’s…it’s a holiday but it’s a transitional day…transitional day because it seems like worldwide tomorrow, you know, tomorrow’s Black Friday…just…yeah…it’s the…it’s the retail rush into the holidays and it’s a point at which it seems that things go into warp drive and that we spend the final month of the year…I mean it’s disruptive but it’s joyous but it’s different. It’s like December is different than any other month in the year and by the time we get through this weekend we will be in the month of December. And, so, let’s just be aware of that and take this this attitude of thanksgiving, this sense of gratitude that this day evokes and carry that into the festivities that are in front of us because…because invariably, our lives are gonna get disrupted and it’s very easy when that happens that we start to live reactionary, right? So, we’re not really enjoying the season anymore, we’re just responding to the season, like we’re just responding to things that are swirling all around us, and pretty soon we are just in the storm as opposed to the fact that we are in the season. So…so let’s remember that as we take the next steps forward intto this weekend and into this season.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi this is Vickie from Arizona and I am calling first of all because I just want to give God praise, that this is the day that He has made, and I shall rejoice and be glad in it. So, I’m setting my face to rejoice but I’m also asking for prayer. December 10th it’ll be two years. And my son left this world and it was suicide and I still every single day give in and struggle and want to hear his voice and I see his little girl and I just wish to God he had made a better choice that day. And I know when that day comes that I just really need God to put His arms around me and just walk me through that day because it’s such…such a hard thing to go through. And I lost my husband almost a year and half ago. So, it’s just a lot of loss that I just…I keep walking through thinking…well God…you’re gonna make a way where there doesn’t seem to be a way, You’re gonna give me joy unspeakable and full of glory and I am declaring and decreeing that over myself. But it’s a constant thing that you just walk through day by day and it doesn’t…it doesn’t stop and I know that God loves me, I know that He’s there, but it’s still such a missing part of my life. And December’s coming and my birthday and Christmas and all the things that…I just miss ‘em. So, I just am asking for prayer for just joy…joy that I can…I can put my head up and say that God said He would never leave me nor forsake me…and I know…
I this is Rolan, my daddy listens to the Daily Audio Bible and I want to…I have a prayer request for a member of our church, she has cancer and she’s having a hard time with that. And also, for my cousin and his mom, they aren’t believers in God and I want them to know how…how much…how much He…how much He loves them and that they…they need to know about Him. Thanks for listening. Bye.
Hello Daily Audio Bible family this is Aminah out of Ohio. I just wanted to follow up on baby girl Adelaide. She was the eight-year-old that had the cancer and she’s been going through aggressive treatment, chemotherapy treatment, and it looks like this is her third round of chemotherapy and that the doctors did anticipate that her white blood count would drop. It’s usually between a 4.5 and a 14.5 but hers is currently at a .6 white blood cell count with this new chemotherapy drug that they are treating her with. So, I ask that you guys please keep her lifted in prayers and may God give her body strength. She’s just a baby and these drugs are so…so aggressive. And, you know, before they work, they really tear your immune system down. This is really a poison. So, I ask that you guys keep her in prayer and that God gives her strength, strength in her little body to get through this aggressive treatment and that this cancer is eradicated. And I don’t think any child should have to suffer and go through this. So, it’s been a while. You know, her hair fell out and everything else and she’s only eight years old. So, please keep her lifted. Let’s pray collectively. I know where two or three are gathered God is in the midst and I know He…He is in the works before we even activate these prayers through the airwaves. So, I love you all. God bless everyone. Again, her name is Adelaide. Take care.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible family this is Isaiah from New Jersey and actually I have an awesome praise report. I am…I can finally say that I have passed the math portion of my PRAXIS. It took me so many times, but I knew that I couldn’t give up. So, I appreciate your prayers and your interceding for me and just…yeah…just being there, standing in the gap for me. Thank you so much Daily Audio Bible family. I was just at the point where, you know, I was like, “oh great, here are my test results again.” So, I was like, “oh I’m going to have to take this again. I know I didn’t pass” and it puts me in a funky mood, you know. But I finally, you know, checked my results and it said that I passed, and I just sat there and just cried and said, “oh…I know that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me And I know that I can’t give up on God because I know that God will not give up on me.” So, guys, just have faith in God. Put your faith…put your faith to work, put some feet on your faith. Just know that God is able, and He can do exceedingly and abundantly far above what you can ask or think. Just believe and trust God. If He can do it for me, He can do it for you. He can do it again and again. I love you guys. Have a blessed holiday. Be grateful. Be thankful. Love on each other. And also love God because He loves you. All right. Be blessed.
Hi family this is his little Cherry in Canada and I’m calling because I wanted to pray a blessing over all of the architects, contractors, designers, builders, those involved in construction because we’ve just read through the portion of Ezekiel where Ezekiel has a vision of the temple and an angel or whoever that man was took Ezekiel through the temple very specifically and showed him all of the measurements and specifications and it’s so specific. And, so, I just want to encourage all of those who are involved as architects or builders that what you do is incredibly spiritual, and God is an architect. He loves all of that. He’s so precise. And, so, I just want you to know that your valuable part of the body of Christ. And not just architects but also tailors, seamstresses, cooks, all of those things are mentioned in this vision that Ezekiel had. And, so, I just want to pray for you. Heavenly Father bless all of these creative people who express Your heart in these specific ways through building, through creating, cooking, sewing, designing, even interior decorators. Lord, bless what they do, kiss what they do by Your Spirit, may it reflect Your heart, your vision. May they do exactly what they’ve been designed to do and bring glory to You in and through it I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Hey DAB family this is God’s Little Bird and this is my two year anniversary and I just wanted to call in and share my appreciation to you guys for all that I learn from you and I’m praying along and I’m glad to use the hotline button because my last couple calls didn’t get played because I think my quality at home is terrible and they get…they thrown out. So, darn! But my last call that I wanted to make was to tell Toni in Germany that like I too did not maintain this year. So, I’m with you. I’m with all of you who are, you know, huge self-judgers and feel like, you know, you just didn’t measure up this year. You know, it’s okay to start over. I’ve had some real up and downs this year, but you guys have been through that with me when I have my really bad anxiety days when I feel like everything’s falling apart. My relationships are terrible. I post on the Facebook page and I have many, many brothers and sisters who pray for me and I just appreciate that so much. It’s so helpful and thank you Brian for all that I learn from you. This podcast keeps me in the word and the word is really what keeps us so close to God and it just makes it so much easier to be able to do that. So, I love you guys, I appreciate you, and I am always listening along just going yes Jesus, agreeing with you guys in prayer. So, I might not call in and say, “hey you I’m praying for you” but I have, you know, I have acknowledged your prayer. So, I love you guys. Thank you so much. Happy two years to me and here’s to many more. Bye.
