...the spider takes hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
Proverbs 30:28 (KJV)For promotion comes neither from the east nor from the west, nor from the south, but God is the Judge...
Psalm 75:6-7 (KJV)
Day 263 – Spider Traits - Aligning for Promotion
The prophet Agur under inspiration from God teaches that the spider works with her (eight) hands. Spiders are at a disadvantage with their size and insignificance. Their webs are often destroyed by humans. However through diligence and resilience, they keep on weaving and are able to make their homes even in kings' palaces. The structure of webs, with their ingenious design and pattern, also reveal incredible intelligence from God. Hard work, perseverance and wisdom from God are keys for success. When we have done our best, remember it is God who decides ultimately our promotion (when, how and in what shape or form).
Father God, help us to be diligent and not give up when facing resistance or setbacks. Let the work of our hands be a hallmark of excellence that glorifies Jesus. We leave all outcome to You as we acknowledge Your lordship in every area of our lives. In Jesus' name, Amen.
