Which comes first, the sin or the “curse” (2194)? Notice the way the verse reads. It looks like the falling for the lie comes after God writes you off. If that is the case it is an application of what we read in the first chapter.
(Pro 1:28 KJV) Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:This rejection by God comes after repeated refusals by man.
From this verse I could come to the conclusion that people who are mired in the “big” sins got there because they were cavalier about the little sins.
So? God is patient. We sin and the Holy Spirit speaks but, like living by the railroad tracks, eventually you stop hearing. Be alert for the beginnings of rebellion. We used to have a bit of jargon that applies for lack of attention, “It’s the pits”.
