SPIDERS... Part-2
Reference Verse:
Proverbs 30:28
(New King James Version)
   I have six things I would like to share with you over this six week series. It has to do with spiders. I know it sounds crazy, but we can learn a lot about God from the spider. You will be amazed I guarantee it.  Let me know your thoughts.  Here is part-2 of:
"A spider and her eggs"
   When it's time to lay eggs the spider produces a particular type of silk thread and spins it into a protective sac, then deposits them. When an enemy comes to steal the spider's offspring, it gets trapped on the sticky fluids that line the silk. Then the spider wraps the enemy in another kind of thread, and turns it into food.

   What's the message of the spider? The battle is over your future!   Don't let the enemy have your children. Don't let him rob you of your potential. Don't let him steal your destiny. When those with weak wills, weak knees and weak faith saw the giants in the Promise Land they wanted to go back to Egypt. But not Caleb. He said, "Neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread to us." (Numbers 14:9) When you understand what the battle in your life is about, you actually begin to feed off the stuff the enemy throws at you and say, "Bring it on, what does not destroy me will only make me stronger."

   Be like Shammah. "When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel's troops fled. . . But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about great victory" (2 Sam. 23:11-12). Shammah knew what he was fighting for. The lentil patch put food on his table. It represented his family's future. It was his legacy. And when Shammah stood up to his enemy, "The Lord brought about great victory." And He'll so the same for you!

    In essence what the spider is telling us is that if there are things in your life that precious to you, if there are things worth fighting for, take a stand and do what's right and God will bring you victory. I hope this illustration helps you to understand how important it is to you to protect what is rightfully yours and not allow someone or something take it from you. Even your "FAITH".
