    When we want to know Gods will,there are three things that always concur-the inward impulse,the word of God,and the trend of circumstances.God in the heart,impelling you forward,God in His book corroborating whatever He says in the heart,and God in circumstances,which are always indicative of His will.Ref:A lesson about Gods will from F.B.

    I think this chapter is as clear as it can be. it is a warning against being led into adultery with a beautiful and willing woman. oh, if I had taken its warning and turned back. now I live with the consequences of a foolish decision for the rest of my life. take heed, all men. she can lead you into a place of instant fun that turns into a lifetime of regret.

    This entire chapter is about knowing the Word of God, keeping his 10 Commandments and the apostate church which leads to hell...many. If you know the Word of God, keep his 10 Commandments then these things will keep you from the strange woman (church).

    Probvers 7 says as God children, when we keep his words and lay up his Commandments with us, we have strength to stand against satan and all his demons that try to seduce us. ( In Jesus name.)!
