Ecclesiastes 7:1-9:18, 2 Corinthians 7:8-16, Psalm 48:1-14, Proverbs 22:17-19
Today is the fourth day of September, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian, it’s great to be here with you as we greet, open the gate, throw open the threshold, walk into a brand-new week, it’s all shiny and sparkly for us. Our first full week of this brand-new month that we’re moving into. So, we got a brand-new week, we’ll read from the God’s Word Translation this week and will pick up where we left off yesterday. And as we move back into the Old Testament, that leads us back into the book of Ecclesiastes, today chapters 7, 8 and 9.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You that even to us, maybe even especially to us, as the Proverb says you have made wisdom known and so we are grateful for that we needed now, more than ever. And as the days increase, so does our need for wisdom and insight and discernment. We need You to lead and guide us, to lead us on the narrow path that leads to life, to lead us into all truth. And You are, it’s not as if you’re withholding from us. You are bountifully pouring these things out to us. So often we find ourselves unaware because we’re not paying attention. So, Holy Spirit, come, as we move into this first full week of this new month, we ask that You lead and direct us, deeper in intimacy with our Savior Jesus and Lord Jesus, we love You, we adore You, we worship You. And with grateful hearts, we offer ourselves to You, for your service and your glory. We pray this in Your name. The name above all names. Amen.
Prayer and Encouragements:
Hi DAB family, this is a Testimony Covers calling, from UK. I just need some prayers for me and my son. My son is gonna be 4 in October. His name is Oliver. And I need some prayers for myself because I don’t, I don’t know how to be mum. I just feel like I’m failing at this. He seems like so difficult but it kinda not. And just, he doesn’t eat and then he’s like, gets frustrated and then he bites people and then some peoples say he’s having some issues or something but I know he doesn’t, he just can’t always express himself. I don’t know how to parent him. My husband doesn’t know as well and we are just like, at least I feel like I’m a bad parent because I don’t know how to discipline him, how to parent. I just need some prayers please. Thank you.
Hey Sparky, it’s Anette Alison from Oklahoma City. Oh man, your called resonated with me so much. This kind of thing has happened to me over and over and over all my life. And if you see my Facebook on the friends page, you go oh yeah, whatever. You know, you just look like a normal human being. And that’s probably true until you get to know me some. So, I mean, I grew up in motorcycle community. I still belong to motorcycle stuff. I mean, I’m not like in a group or anything. But you know, I build motorcycles, I ride motorcycles, I wear leather, I wear big ol boots on occasion. And I went to a church and man, I was having a great time and everything was good until a beautiful Spring Day and I rode one of my hand-built motorcycles that I had built. And it was like, I dressed in jeans and a nice like button down shirt but I carried my helmet in and it was like, the people that I had been going to church with, they didn’t even sit around me. Like I was in a pew by myself you know, kind of sorta up to the front, nobody sat behind me, nobody sat in front of me. It was like I was a paria. Ok, and I guess I forgot to wear deodorant that day or something, I don’t know. But that’s the way it was and I was like, I was so hurt, I was so hurt, that’s the, that’s the feeling and I sure understand you. But you know what, I also found out, is that, I relate to different kinds of people. Not everybody is meant to do the same job, okay. You are gonna relate to a certain group of people. That’s the way God made you and if people can’t recognize that, I’d say you’re probably in the wrong group. Okay. So, consider that, consider your gift and you are, you are to outreach a certain group of people. Alright, just like Jesus’s cousin was meant to be out there in the wilderness.
Greetings DAB family, this is my first time ever calling. And I am a pastor in southwest Ohio. And I just praised the Lord for this ministry. And for all the prayers being lifted up. And for those that leave their concerns before the Lord, the Bible is clear about how we are to present our requests before the Lord and to share our burdens with one another. So, everyone, let’s please as we probably do every day but not to repeat what’s being said but let’s agree together in Jesus’ name. And it will be accomplished. And I just want to say how much the Lord means to me and how much He has helped me through the years as He continuously does every day. I thank him also for His son Jesus and for the wonderful gift of salvation. And so, Heavenly Father, please be in Jesus’ name, with all these people who call. Every day, to believe in what you can and will and already have done. Continue to pour out Your Spirit upon this nation in every way. And may everyone have a blessed and joyous day. And I look forward to calling again some time. Until then have a blessed and joyous day. In Jesus name. Amen.
