14 What they …

 

14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web. 

Job 8

What an amazing word picture of what we so often look to, depend on, consult with, allow to support and guide our lives.

My spider web—-

My friends and families opinions
My friends, co-workers, families approval

The media/secular world’s opinion
My logic
My intelligence
My ‘wisdom’ 
My strength
What feels right
What makes me look good
What makes me feel good
What I think is ‘right’
What I think God wants, likes, ‘needs’ 

But how often is the anchor point, the starting point, the foundation, His Word or seeking Him in prayer? And I find myself falling through space with cobwebs clinging to me.

15 They lean on the web, but it gives way; they cling to it, but it does not hold.
