Scripture: from verse 6
Their webs will not serve as clothing…
Observation: Humans are just spectacular at producing things that aren’t as useful or as important as we think they are, aren’t we? Admittedly in this case I think the webs are meant to ensnare others rather than clothe the person spinning them, but it doesn’t sound like that will work out very well either.
Sometimes I get discouraged and impatient, feeling that I need to be doing something to make things happen, not just waiting for God to tell me what to do. And then I get reminded that we’re terrible at doing things. I could spin all sorts of webs for all sorts of purposes, but I wouldn’t accomplish anything besides making myself dizzy. Much better (though not easier) to wait for the true path.
Application: Talk to God. Every day.
Prayer: Lord, I praise you because you are able to provide real covering and real food. Thank you for being my hiding place. Help me to trust you. Amen.
