Day 13 – ‘…Feeble but Wise…’


“There are four things which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer. The rock badgers are a feeble folk, yet they make their homes in the crags. The locusts have no king, yet they are all advance in ranks. The spider skilfully grasps with its hands, and it is in kings’ palaces” Proverbs 30:24-28 NKJV

If you could spend some time to study these four verses of scripture in as many translations as you can lay your hands upon, including probably the Bible in your local language; you will come to understand that your circumstances are not enough to limit your achievements and rising in life.

Imagine how frail the ants are, yet they succeed in storing up in summer all the food they will need in winter; I wonder at their wisdom (Proverbs 6:6-8). The conies seem to be weak, yet they make their homes among the rocks! Locusts have no king, yet they go forward in formation – I wonder how they do that! Also, lizards and spiders which you can easily hold in your hands sneaks past vigilant royal guards to dwell in palaces! God has given each of these four small creatures the wisdom and inherent abilities to survive in different life situations despite how feeble they are; the wonderworks of God!

If you would look inward, and lift your heart unto God for wisdom, you will receive the light you need to come out of every predicament of life. ‘…Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows (Luke 12:7).’  This year is a fresh opportunity from God to you; take it with wisdom.
