SPIDERS... Part-4
Reference Verses Below
(from 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-4 of:
"The spider's survival oil"

  How come a spider can walk across the sticky threads of its web and not get stuck, yet those same threads will trap every predator that enters? The secret is... oil.  Its tiny suction cup shaped feet exude fresh oil with every step, so it glides through stuff others can't survive, or get bogged down in.

  What's the message of the spider?  You need to be continually anointed with the oil of God's Spirit.  Looking back, you realize that's what kept you sane when you thought you were going to lose your mind.  It's why you made it when others didn't.  And it's why you need to stay filled with God's Spirit every day. The Psalmist said, "I shall be anointed with fresh oil".
(Psalm 92:10).

  But there are four truths in Exodus, chapter 30, concerning the anointing oil, that we need to keep in mind if we're going to live an anointed life:
  - (1) Without it, our ministry is ineffective. "Thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons...that they may minister unto me" (Exodus 30:30).
  - (2) Our children need to experience it. "This shall be a holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations" (Exodus 30:31).
  - (3) God won't anoint our fleshly efforts and agendas. "Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make another like it" (Exodus 30:32).
  - (4) We are in danger when we try to substitute it with other things. "Whoever makes any like it ...must be cut off" (Exodus 30:38).

Before you leave home every morning
get down on your knees and pray,
"Lord, anoint me with fresh oil".
