Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Perfect Trust
by Charles R. Swindoll

The LORD also will be
a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Psalm 9:9


When the Philistines seized David in Gath he said, "When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You" (Psalm 56:3).

When he fled from Saul into a cave, he cried out to God. "My soul takes refuge in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until destruction passes by" (Psalm 57:1).

Many, many years ago, Felix of Nola was escaping his enemies, and he, too, took temporary refuge in a cave. He had scarcely entered the opening of the cave before a spider began to weave its web across the small opening.

With remarkable speed, the insect completely sealed off the mouth of the cave with an intricate web, giving the appearance that the cave had not been entered for many weeks. As Felix's pursuers passed by, they saw the web and didn't even bother to look inside.

Later, as the godly fugitive stepped out into the sunlight, he uttered these insightful words: "Where God is, a spider's web is a wall; where He is not, a wall is but a spider's web."
