Don’t you hate to walk into a cobweb? Yuk! You know what made it; but how did it get in and more important; where is it – NOW? So we may walk around with a swatter, get the vacuum or dust mop and get rid of the silvery thread it left behind. But unless we find the culprit, chances are we will walk into another web; another day!
We often walk into spiritual cobwebs; a temptation hits us squarely in the face and we wonder, “Why is this happening–again? Maybe it’s because we didn’t get rid of it the first time around. We didn’t pick up and read our Bible (our swatter); we didn’t let the Holy Spirit help us (our vacuum/dust mop); we didn’t pray and ask for forgiveness and trust the Lord to get rid of the sin (those silvery threads that want to keep coming back).
We should search our hearts daily, and walk closely to our Lord and also ask Him daily to:
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts; and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23,24
This is the only way to keep from walking into another spiritual web!
