DAILY BIBLE STUDY
Yet another new porch corner brought about by popular demand!
Thanks to my firm stand in a recent discussion about diving
headfirst into Scripture, folks from everywhere wanted to know
how I organized my own... For 2013 I'm going keep using Ken &
Gloria Copeland's Faith to Faith ...I've researched a LOT and it's still
the best one, in MY humble opinion! Same format...a daily study
with a Scripture to read so lets start 2015 off right by diving into

In a multitude of words transgression is not lacking, but
he who restrains his lips is prudent.
We believers need to start watching our language! We need to quit
throwing words around like they weren't important and start using
them like our lives depended on it--because, according to the
Word of God, they do! (Proverbs 18:21).
Too many of us have what Proverbs 19:1 calls a perverted mouth.
Having a perverted mouth means more than lying and using
profanity. It means having a disobedient mouth. It means saying
things that are out of line with the Word of God.
All of us have done that at one time or another. We'll say, for
instance, that we're believing God for our healing and then we'll
turn right around to someone and make a statement like, "This
pain is about to kill me!"
That's perverted! It's backwards from what God's Word says.
"Oh well, Brother Copeland, I know I said that, but it's not really
what I meant."
Listen, the world of the spirit doesn't operate on what you mean. It
operates on what you say. Mark 11:23 tells us that "whosoever
shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast
into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that
those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith."
Take note. That verse didn't say you shall have whatsoever you
mean. It says you'll have what you say. It's what you say that
Now, I'm not suggesting you should be tied up in knots all the time
worrying about what your next phrase might be. Just use the
wisdom God has given you. Train your mouth to be obedient to
His Word. Then, when you need it most, you'll find that Word
dwelling richly in you.
