Proverbs 27:12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; But the simple pass on, and are punished.
God can help you know what is going to happen before it happens. The prudent man or the man who has learned to be cautious and think wisely can see evil coming his way. He realizes that if he does certain things, then there will be consequences or results. He measures his actions. He thinks of the effects beforehand. He seems to understand more than others. He is discerning. He is sensible.
Do you know where you learn to be like this man? You learn this from the Word of God. You learn to be wise as you fear God. The simple refers to someone that is not wise or even silly. They are even weak in intellect. They are naive. They are easily deceived or persuaded to things because of a lack of wisdom and understanding.
Do you know how to increase your understanding? It would mean you are getting into the Word of God. Begin to think truth and act on truth. Do not go by your feelings or accept what the world has to say.
