Deuteronomy 26:1-27:26, Luke 10:38-11:13, Psalm 76:1-12, Proverbs 12:15-17

Today is the fourth day of April, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is great to be here with you today as we gather once again around the Global Campfire, join our hearts together, take the next step forward together. And we are continuing our journey through the final book of the Torah the Book of Deuteronomy, and today we will read Deuteronomy chapters 26 and 27.


Okay so, in the Gospel of Luke today, Jesus was praying, his disciples were seeing Him and then they ask, will You teach us how to pray? John taught his disciples how to pray, will You teach us how to pray? And then Jesus teaches them, what we know as the Lord’s Prayer. And we have encountered the Lord’s prayer in the Gospel of Matthew, as we were moving through it. But here, we encounter it in the Gospel of Luke. And so, He taught them what we call the Lord’s Prayer. And then as a teaching moment, as an example, He went on to tell this story of a person who, who had unexpected guests arrive kind of in the middle of the night, when everybody’s in bed. So, everybody’s in bed and they don’t really have anything prepared but there’s a guest. And so, the owner of the home gets up and welcomes his guest and then goes to his neighbor so he can maybe get some food, some supplies. But of course, the neighbor is already in bed and the family is already asleep, as well. And so, the way that Jesus tells the story is that it, it’s, it’s not the fact that their neighbors that got him what he needed. It was the fact that he was persistent. Finally got his neighbor out of bed to assist him. So, Jesus uses this illustration, and then He says, I tell you, ask and you will receive, search and you will find, knock and the door will be open for you, everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find and for the person who knocks, the door will be opened. So, ask, seek, knock and we have to ask ourselves, are we asking because we need or are we asking because we have a momentary desire, when we’re seeking. Seeking takes effort and commitment, how committed are we to finding, because we will. But we have to remember we’re not going to our rich uncle for money, we’re going to the Almighty most high God who wants to be in a relationship with us that is collaborative, that is a relationship, that is bound by love. And many of the answers that we are looking for in life actually come when we pursue, when we relentlessly seek. We we’re talking about this yesterday. God isn’t Santa. He’s God, God. And then in the last verse, verses that we read today, Jesus then reveals the heart of God. He says if your child asks you his father, for a fish, would you give him a snake instead? Or if your child asks you for an egg, would you give him a scorpion. Even though you’re evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. So, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him? Let’s just keep in mind that we don’t get to wake up in the morning and write down a to do list for God. We get to wake up in the morning in God’s presence, asking him for our to do list.


And Father, it has been the sung millions of times now that you are a good, good Father, and we believe that You are a good, good Father who definitely desires to pour out blessing and good gifts upon Your children. We kinda get stuck there, like that’s the whole thing, that’s the whole story. You’re a good God, who likes to give good presents to the people that find favor with You. When what You seek is our very hearts to be reunited with Yours in a dance called life, in a place where darkness is, and we have been commissioned with the light and You will always care for us and equip us, whether we understand it or not. We will never escape Your presence and You will never abandon us. So, may we look at our lives and the choices and decisions that we make with this in mind, we are in a relationship. How does what we want to do affect the relationship, and how can we learn to ask and seek and knock. Come, Holy Spirit into this, as we contemplate it this very day. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Prayer and Encouragements:

Hi, this is Victorious Victory from Louisiana. I just want to lift up J from the Bay and her brother, Nick. I understand you sis. I am about at that point with my older brother, who is just doing the same thing and is in need of some tough love. But I just wanna pray for him. I just pray, Lord Jesus, that You just give him a revelation of who he really is, who You have called him to be and the love You have for him. Because Your love and Your kindness is what brings us to repentance, Father. I just plead the blood of Jesus over him right now. Father God, for protection, Lord. I thank You, Lord, that You really do have good plans for him, Father. That he has survived this gunshot, Lord, and it was a for a reason, God. Because You have good plans for him, Lord Jesus, and You will turn this into a great testimony. He will be a great man of the Lord. We thank You for that. And I just lift up J from the Bay, Father God. I just pray peace over her and her mother and her families’ hearts, Lord God. I just pray that they fully surrender him, Lord, to You, Lord Jesus. I thank You for that, Father. I thank You that You honor what a great sister she is, Lord, that she would take the time to call on his behalf, Lord. I thank You that Your word says that when we are saved so will our household, Father. I thank You for that. I thank You for that and I thank You for Your word, Lord, that it does not return void. Have a great day.

Hello, this is Mr. Mike, formerly the Greatest Trucker. Anyhow, calling in to pray, ask you to pray for my wife, Terri. We’ve been listening to the DAB almost every day for ten years now and she, we’re both real healthy but recently we both had COVID. She’s kind of developed the hives from it and they move and sometimes they’ll be in one part of her body, sometimes they’ll go to another. They’ve just kind of been going up. And we’re just praying that they just go away from the top of her head and disappear. So, and I ask you to pray for my wife, Terri. In Jesus name. Thank you, Amen.

Good morning, DAB Family, this is Rider for Christ from SOCAL. I am loyal listener, first-time caller. And the reason for my call today was for help and prayer regarding my career. I currently work a career that I love and the only thing that I would change from it would be my travel time. It is 78 hours, sorry, 78 miles one way and 40+ hours sometimes up to past 60 a week. I love what I do. I believe God wants me here doing what I do and recently there’s been opportunity to do the same thing that I do but closer to home. And I applied for that position or for that department and I’m asking for help and prayer that I may get favor and acquiring this position. At the end of the day, I want God’s will to be done and if, if it’s not the department that, that He wants me to have, may He give me the strength to continue this travel time and to continue doing good things at work. Thank you DAB family for your prayers, and I love you guys.

Hello Daily Audio Bible friends, this is Desert Rose from California. It is April 1st. I called in a while ago to ask for prayer for my granddaughter Eva, who had been in the psychiatric hospital for suicidal ideation. Well, a couple of weeks ago she actually had a suicide plan. And was taken to a in-patient facility. This next Monday, this is Saturday, in two days she will be going to an out-patient residential home for emotional disturbed teenagers. I ask your prayers for her healing. Please join me in prayer. Precious Jesus, You know Eva, You’ve known her since birth. We ask together, as a community, that You would restore her mind, that You would take the depression away and the anxiety. That she would have hope, that she would have a future. Please, heal her. We ask that this time in intense therapy would be productive. We ask God, that in Your mercy, You would show her Your face and that she would come to know You as her savior and make You Lord of her life. Thank you everyone for helping me pray for Eva. Goodbye.
