Proverbs 6:32,33 "Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul. 33 Wounds and dishonor he will get, And his reproach will not be wiped away."
When men are grounded in the Word of God, and are filled with the Fire of God they will not allow sexual immorality to come near their lives. They will realize that it is a tool by the devil to destroy them and their families and ultimately to distract them from accomplishing the purposes of God in their lives. There is no way to hide this sin. It may seem as if no one knows but eventually it will come out and ruin everyone involved.
Proverbs 6:24-29 "To keep you from the evil woman, From the flattering tongue of a seductress. 25 Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, Nor let her allure you with her eyelids. 26 For by means of a harlot A man is reduced to a crust of bread; And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life. 27 Can a man take fire to his bosom, And his clothes not be burned? 28 Can one walk on hot coals, And his feet not be seared? 29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife;"
It has become the plague of the 21st century and the strategy by the devil to destroy the family. Marriage and the family is ridiculed and scorned on by the world and Children of God need to make a stand against the wave of sexual perversion that has us sweeping the world. The kingdom of God needs men with backbone and moral integrity that will take their place as priests in the home and not be drawn away by the lust of the flesh.
James 1:12 "Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."
When temptations, trials and tribulations come into your life you need to be resolute, standing firm, knowing that at the end of every trial lies the blessing of God and the manifestation of His promises over your life.
Proverbs 6:6-11 "Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, 7 Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, 8 Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. 9 How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep— 11 So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man."
While God has promised to supply all your need according to His riches in glory, you need to realize that you still have a part to play. God will use what you put at His disposal to allow things to come into your life. As an example, He will use your business to channel finances into your life. He will use your faith, mixed with action to bring blessings and provision into your life.
Proverbs 5:21,23 "For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.He shall die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray."
You might be feeling that God has forgotten you or that He is too busy to have time for your problems. The truth is that you are constantly in God’s thoughts and that He has not forgotten about you.
Take time to re-focus and read His word diligently. You will find that He has got all the answers to every challenge you may be facing. You just need to do exactly what He is telling you and not try and follow your own plans. It may seem a little strange but have faith in God and know that He will always lead you to a place of peace and provision.
Proverbs 4:23 "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life."
When you are facing problems and frustrations in your life; it is so easy to start to criticize God and wonder if He really cares for you. It is during times like these that you need to guard your heart and not allow doubt and fear to enter. Fill yourself with the Word and promises of God so that when the difficult times come your heart is filled with God’s truth and His plan for that situation and challenge.
Proverbs 4:20-22 "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh."
The truth is that the Word of God will bring healing and health to your body. Live it, apply it and you will find that it is the very life source of an abundant and fulfilled life. It will bring health to your flesh!
James 1:6,7 "But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways."
Being double minded means that the mind of your flesh is trying to divert your Spirit mind away from what God is saying. Yes, you have two minds and depending on which one you feed the most, will determine which one has the greatest influence. You have to be lead by the Spirit, trusting and relying on God’s word if you want to see the promises of God manifest in your life.
Proverbs 4:18 "But the path of the just is like the shining sun,That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day."
You are the righteousness of God; or in other words, you are the showpiece of God’s saving grace and His forgiveness on this earth. As you seek God and allow Him to take control of every facet of your life you will find that your life shines brighter and brighter and God will use you more and more to change and impact other peoples lives.
Proverbs 4:5,6,7 "Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. 6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding."
The wisdom of God is one of the most important principles that need to be in every Christian's life. Solomon says in this piece of scripture that while man is busy with so many things, by far the most important is to acquire the wisdom of God. It will change your life and empower you to experiencing the fullness of God’s goodness.
