LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PROVERB 2:16 (NLT)
"Wisdom will save you from the immoral woman, from the seductive words of the promiscuous woman."
1."I have the strength to defend myself" . won't save you. Let God be true, Amen.1 Sam 2:9b(NLT) "He will protect his faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness. No one will succeed by strength alone."
2.Anointing without wisdom leads to destruction . You doubt ? Ask Samson in the book of Judges 16:31(NLT)"Later his brothers and other relatives went down to get his body. They took him back home and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol, where his father, Manoah, was buried. Samson had judged Israel for twenty years."
3.Knowledge without applied wisdom will backfire .Joseph had knowledge , but wisdom told him "Flee" . Please can I translate it in my "pigin" language , wisdom told Joseph "vanish from there , no look back O " .Gen 39:12 (ESV)"she caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand and fled and got out of the house."
4.Prayer again is good , but for the above verse of scripture "wisdom is profitable to direct ". Amen. Eccl 10:10"If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct."
5.Never underestimate the power of an immoral woman , she perfectly knows what she is doing to trap you . Samson failed to realize this.Judges 16:19 (NIV)"After putting him to sleep on her lap, she called for someone to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him."
6.Avoiding her is childish , especially if she is in your office /neighbourhood/or lives in your very Estate. Dealing with your mind will go along way .When they see a committed Christian they know and whenever they see you , it will not be you ignoring them , they ignore you . Even when you greet , at times they pretend not to hear .lol. Eph 4:24(NIV)" and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.". prov 4:23 (NIV)"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."
7.The immoral woman is been controlled by Satan ; and one thing we all should realize about this guy is found in the book of Rev 2 :24(NET)" But to the rest of you in Thyatira, all who do not hold to this teaching (who have not learned the so-called "deep secrets of Satan"), to you I say: I do not put any additional burden on you." An Immoral woman has a big full of endless tricks , if you doubt again ? go and ask those great Men of God who have fallen for them or better still "google it".
8.The words of a seductive woman are powerful ; but this is the catch , they can easily tell a fool when they catch one. how ? when you give them a listening ear. prov 7:4-5(NLT)"Love wisdom like a sister; make insight a beloved member of your family. Let them protect you from an affair with an immoral woman, from listening to the flattery of a promiscuous woman."
9.When it comes to an immoral woman , age difference does not work o . A ten year old can seduce a man of 40 years , if wisdom is not applied. The 10 year olds of today are far different from the ones of the 70's ."knowledge has increased o" prov 3:7 (NLT)Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
10.Am immoral woman is like a fast moving train , who has no pity/mercy for those who "foolishly" come across her path . She will crush your destiny so hard and as if nothing happened , the train is still on top speed . you doubt? go and ask the Ex celebrities they will tell you their story or better still "google it ".prov 2:18-19(NLT)"Entering her house leads to death; it is the road to the grave. The man who visits her is doomed. He will never reach the paths of life."
PRAY LIKE THIS - FATHER DELIVER ME FROM THE HANDS OF EVERY STRANGE WOMAN BOTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE IN THE NAME OF JESUS , AMEN.
