Four Little People

4 Little People or Creatures The book of Proverbs talks of Godly wisdom as the number 1 thing that we should seek in life to live well in His ways "Proverbs 4:7, 3:14. In Proverbs 30:24-28 it talks of"four things which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise�. These 4 have traits of wisdom that we can learn from.
  1. The Ant - �The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer�.( Also read Prov. 6:6) The ant prepares for the lean times (winter) during the times of plenty (summer or harvest). This is the wisdom of preparation.
We also must learn the wisdom of preparation, to prepare ourselves for what lies ahead in our life. You can prepare for an unforseen tribulation ahead by feeding yourself with Gods Word and thereby building your faith in His promise. And by praying in tongues, building yourself up on your most holy faith. We should also be preparing for eternity � by working out our salvation daily; by spreading the good news of Jesus; by spending time studying God�s Word and talking with Him daily as you build your relationship with Him; by being obedient to His word and stepping out and doing what He has said we can now do or leads you to do. Remember God has many rewards, and ready to give them, and faithful to do so this life and the next which goes forever. Prepare for times ahead when you may have to pass thru the valley [Beca] on journey.
  1. The Rock Badger - ��a feeble folk, yet they make their homes in the crags�.
This is the wisdom of protection. Being weak and good target to be eaten, they find refuge in the sharp rocks that provide them with strength. We also should protect our spirit, soul and body man by keeping the armour of God on. We stand on the Rock of Jesus. Ps 91:9 �Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you�.�� Read 2 Samuel 22:2-4
  1. The Locust - ..�have no king, yet they advance in ranks� This is the wisdom of unity. The power of working together is mighty! 1 will put a 1000 to flight but 2 will put 10,000 to flight.. What could 50 do? If any 2 agree on anything � My Father will do it... were Jesus� words. And God says that when the brethren come together in unity, that He will command a blessing.
  2. The Spider - ..�skilfully grasps with its hands, and it is in kings� palaces.� This is the wisdom of perseverance. Spiders don�t give up and they can live in the best of places.
The Word says that while the earth remains there will be seed, time, and harvest. Persistence will keep you on track during the period of �time� before seeing the harvest of your seed. As Heaven bound sons of God we must keep a stubborn purpose and not get side tracked or give up. We have Holy Spirit help, and the power of praise; in the hope (intense expectation) in a faithful God and His Word. As the web of a spider comes from inside of him, so our strength and ability will come from our spirit man. Jesus said that it�s not what goes into someone, but what comes out of that person that determines the future�spinning webs of defeat or hope�so we must guard our heart with all diligence, because out of it spring the issues of life. Hebrews 10:35-39 �Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.� True wisdom is taking God�s ways and obedience � uniting them to happiness.
