Proverbs in 365 Devotions

04/13

Proverbs 7:10 And behold, the woman meets him,dressed as a prostitute, wily of heart. 11 She is loud and wayward;her feet do not stay at home; 12 now in the street, now in the market,and at every corner she lies in wait.

 

She is found everywhere

you look for her

Daniel Castor

Proverbs 7 is all about the ways of the adulterous woman. Her Solomon, the wisest man to ever live highlights this truth... if you go looking for trouble your going to find it.

Solomon here is speaking of a foolish man who is wandering around the adulterous woman’s neighborhood at night time.  What is he doing there?... Why is he up at this time at night?... He is hoping to find that pernicious woman, and he does!   

She is easy to find because she is looking for him too. She is prowling the streets looking for her next target and she is dressed to kill for that is her true intent.  

The adulterous woman still plays the same game today. She is looking for a lover, she is looking for someone to destroy and devour. And at every corner she lies in wait! Now on your computer, now on your smart phone, she is plastered on the magazines next to you in the check out line. Flee from her and flee from death. Because the man who is comfortable wandering around her neighborhood will soon find himself in her arms, in her bed and headed for sure destruction!

Do not go looking for trouble... for those who do will surely find it!
