Discussion for Proverbs 2

  • A disciple
    Dear Ann; I always find it so uplifting and strengthening to be in the Proverbs! Read carefully the introduction in the opening verses: this was Solomon's great longing, that he answered to the LORD in his dream: to be able to feed the people with knowledge and understanding and God's wisdom, like David his father. God sure gave him his request! And such amazing truth to guide us in all our Life!

    But if we are walking in the truth, and in the Spirit, we are not pandering to the lusts of the flesh! Job 31:1 "I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?" "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds..." So we learn to resist the devil, control our thoughts, and keep our bodies under subjection in holiness!

    disciple,your comment to me on Gal.1 pg. brought me here.In the Spirit of Proverbs 2:5-13; please read Romans 1:17-21 V.20 God says "there is no excuse"There is no profit for people when affections(the flesh is weak but the spirit is willing) cause us to make excuses for them.V.17 "the just shall live by faith." Test the spirits, hope in His mercy,walk by faith. God is faithful to His Word. Amen
