Proverbs 27:12 “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.”
Two men are presented in the Scripture: a prudent man, and a simple man.
The prudent man is the one who is careful, and thoughtful about what he sees, and what is going on around him.
The simple doesn’t care what happens. He is only interested in pleasing himself, and will just continue as he always has.
Only one sees danger and hides himself from it. The other constantly gets in trouble, and never figures out why.
Christians have been given a spiritual awareness about the results of sin, and should heed the tugging of the Holy Spirit away from temptation.
But far too many today choose to stay simple-minded about the danger of God’s chastisement. They really believe they won’t get into trouble.
The few Christians who are prudent and careful to stay reading and studying their Bible, will know how valuable their time in prayer and fasting is to keep them out of trouble.
There is no shame in hiding ourselves from trouble – especially when you can stay out of trouble with God!
Hide yourselves in your prayer closet (Mt 6:6)
Hide yourselves in faithful Church Meetings (Heb 10:25)
Hide yourselves in the precious blood of Jesus Christ (Heb 9:14)
This month, let’s let the Lord teach us how to become spiritually aware of the right path to walk, and the godly way to live so that we, and our families stay out of trouble with God!
Don't forget, our revival meetings start Sunday the 20th of September! Check out all the events going on at www.biblebc.com
