January 11

Posted on Jan 11, 2018

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Ps 119:11). My Bible teaches that if a man can bridle his tongue, he can bridle his whole body (see Jas 3:2). That was one of the first lessons I learned in my Christian life… My tongue began to be bridled by my heart, that was bridled by the Lord and His Word. Immediately after my conversion I began learning Bible verses, and I learned one a day for the first three years. In those years I learned my first thousand verses. A preacher said to me when I went to him for help about leading others to Christ, “I’ll tell you something. There is an answer in the Bible for every excuse that any man can give for not coming to Christ.” I believed him. Then I went alone to God in prayer and said, “God, if there is an answer to any man’s excuse, I promise You that I will never be caught on the same excuse twice.” That is but a little promise to make, but it changed the course of my life.—Dawson Trotman
