ALT="orb-weaver spider web"

My friend took this picture because she had to.

Not because she likes spiders (she doesn’t), but because of the amazingly, intricate design patiently created by a small, faithful spinner – an orb-weaver.

I’m not a spider fan either, but as part of God’s creation, they too have something to show us, and I believe this spinner’s lesson is persistence.




Jesus mentioned such perseverance during a conversation on prayer.  

“Keep on asking … keep on seeking … keep on knocking.” (Luke 11:9-10

The bottom-line message? Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Don’t let go.

“For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

  1. This is a good reminder to never give up on God. We do need patience. But everything is answered in God’s timing according to His plan and purpose. Are we praying for His will?

  2. Good question to ask, Karen.
