This week, we will continue the study of the book of Proverbs and share more thoughts.
Below are some questions for reflection.
* Describe the adulteress. Why should you keep away from her? What are the personal and public results for the adulterer? What does Proverbs 5:15-21 reveal about God’s plan for sex and love?
* What about ants can we learn? The Lord hates certain things in people. Are there any of these in your life and are there ways you can get rid of them? What are the consequences for the person who commits adultery?
Believe that God has a great plan for you.Victory starts by having a plan. By accepting God’s plan for us, all we need to do is follow and believe He will provide the power. He will give the upper hand to make what seems impossible possible.

The poem at this link was written to inspire dreaming and planning out your activities. No one wants to look back on life and have to say, “if only I had done this or that when I was younger”. To step ahead, there needs to be a plan.
But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold. – Job 23:10
As the post “There is Freedom in Wisdom” points out, good things happen if you listen to those with experience, follow instructions, and prepare. If plans don’t totally work out, wisdom gives you a sense of freedom to improvise and tweak the kinks.
Some of the greatest plays ever in the game of football happened when the initial plan didn’t work out. Think of a quarterback that goes back to pass only to be blitzed by the defensive team. He decides to run the ball away from the blitz for either a first down or even a touchdown.
It’s the same in the game of life. Take inspiration from today’s song Unfinished by Mandisa. Life is not easy as negatives blitz us from all sides and we all can get down or discouraged but God’s Work in us may not be done. If He started something good, just keep believing it and keep working it until He completes it.
