    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.

    Harry, since you have learned the lord will lead you to expectations beyond your comprehension. You have humbled yourself and he will lift you up!

    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).

    Verse 8~The young man took a bad first step by putting himself in the pathway of danger. We must avoid placing ourselves in the path of temptation.
  • Umor Paul
    1Pet 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
    The young man in the text was a simple man, he hadn't any back up (GRACE). The lady in the picture is Satan concealed looking for simple men to wear them his garment of sin. our world today is plagued with mobile prostitute looking for simple souls. 1John 3 vs 8
