The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces. Prov. 30:28
The spider is not popular but she is diligent and aggressive and gets things done. If one web is swept away she spins another and doesn’t hesitate to take up quarters even in kings’ palaces.
So might you and I dwell in the spiritual King’s palace if only we took hold by the hand of faith. If we took hold of God’s grace and took hold of opportunity and took hold of life with a positive eye to business instead of timidly and gingerly, we should live in the courts of the King instead of in some spiritual attic.
We get mixed up in our ideas of humility. It is never inconsistent with a holy boldness for we take hold in the name of Another. Since he is our High Priest, we may come boldly to the throne of grace and since he has said we may boldly say (Heb. 4:16; 13:6). If you have a spirit of fear you didn’t get it from God for he has not given us such torment (2 Tim. 1:7).
Take hold boldly by faith and dare to spin your web in the King’s palace! Don’t live in an attic!
