A Story of the Soldier and a Spider

Many times we look for solutions in the wrong directions. Often we have an idea of difficult solutions when they could be so simple, and there lying in front of us, without us noticing them. At moments we also can loose trust in the Higher Being because it looks as if we do not get the answer to our question right away. When we look at it, after we needed some patience, we shall see that the Most High always provides the best answer in our, but mainly also in His interest, and at His time.

We should trust Him more and give our live in His hands instead of directing it so much ourselves.

To remember

Scrambling for cover > crawled inside one of the caves.

After praying … he thought, “Well, I guess the Lord isn’t going to help me out of this one.”

“what I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humor.”

“I had forgotten that in you a spider’s web is stronger than a brick wall.”

Facing times of great trouble it is so easy to forget the victories that God would work in our lives, sometimes in the most surprising ways.

“In God we will have success!” [Nehemiah 2:20]

With God, a mere spider’s web can become a brick wall of protection. Trust and believe that He is with you always. Just ask for his help and you will see His great power and love for you.

    Imagine an excruciating burning and itching inside your ear. After three days of constant pain and ear tugging, you are shocked to discover a maggot crawling out of your ear; and the worst part… Not being able to tell anybody about it! That’s exactly what happened to 92 year old Catherine McCann of Arlington Heights, Illinois.
  • The Example of Nehemiah (Part 2) – The Enemy (flaniganjames.wordpress.com)
    Non-believers explain away the existence of God and convince themselves that His divine attributes are accredited to some impersonal “force” of nature.  Like the saying made popular by the Star Wars movies, “the force be with you”, they believe in some mysterious, unknown force that can possibly be harnessed by a select few “masters” who can train their senses to connect with this force to control it for their purposes, thus placing human beings as the highest form of life in the universe.  This lie goes back to the garden where Eve was told that if she ate the apple she would be “like God”.  Popular today is the phrase “thank the universe” as if to honor this unknown force that somehow controls our fate.
  • Giant Spider In The Pants (blogpestcontrol.com)
    While at work today, I got a frantic phone call from my four year old daughter.

    “Daddy,” she cried. “I went to put on my pants and out jumped a big spider!”

    “It’s scary Daddy!” “We caught in a jar.”

    After a examining the spider, and talking to some spider control professionals, I was able to determine that the spider in question was a Giant Arizona Crab Spider; a common spider in Arizona.

During World War II, a US Marine was separated from his unit on a Pacific island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke and the crossfire, he had lost touch with his comrades.

Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock. Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves. Although safe for the moment, he realized that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and he would be killed. As he waited, he prayed, “Lord, if it be your will, please protect me. Whatever your will though, I love you and trust you. Amen.”

After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close. He…
