Only a Savior, Creator, & King of Kings could have done that. It does not just happen in a… big bang. It is the Lord!
Just look at the picture above and see that spider web. You may think that is just an ordinary spider web, but it’s not. Look how intricately designed it is. Only our amazing Father could have created that masterpiece!
Did you know that some spiders eat their silk (known as the web)? It’s mind blowing. The silk is like a protein and it gives them energy. Just like the silk… God gives us our energy and wisdom through His Word. It is our meat to live on and it makes us stronger in our relationship with Him. It never makes us thirsty again!
John 4:14 says, “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Did you know that the stretchy and lustrous silk is used to create the spiral that captures prey. When a fly comes into that web, it immediately gets stuck. Just like that stretchy web we need to be prepared as Christians. We never know when a trial is coming our way. We need to be prepared to have the Word of God always in us. To memorize and have it on our hearts always! So, just like that spider is prepared, if prey comes, we need to be prepared as Christians to fight our enemy. We need to fight with the Word!
Did you know that hummingbirds use small sticks and the silk from spider webs to weave a nest for themselves? Just like spiders help hummingbirds, we as children of the Lord are suppose to help our brothers and sisters in Christ. We need to show the love of Christ.
John 15:12 says, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”
Galatians 6:2 declares, “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
When we love others and help others, we will be blessed! It’s amazing how God created everything for a reason and a purpose.
What we think is a simple and little spider… is an amazing creation! God uses everything for His glory and honor! When we look at the sky, birds, squirrels, or butterflies it all speaks of God. I challenge you this week, whenever you are outside, take the time to look at His creation and think about our Designer and His beautifully designed creation. Let’s praise Him for the beauty that surrounds us!
~ Nehemiah 9:6 declares, “You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.”
