I have been slowly strolling through Warren Wiersbe's book,
If you are going through a trial right now, which most likely is all of you, this book is one of encouragement.
Job 7:6 "My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope." One of the chapters explains are lives as believer's as a loom. Christ is the weaver and we are His handiwork. Here are a few excerpts to encourage you as they have me.
"First, since life is moving rapidly, our circumstances will change. Second, since our lives are like a weaver's shuttle, there is a pattern and purpose involved. God controls the shuttle and God has a pattern for our lives. As long as God is on the throne, there is hope."
"You and I are still on the loom. God isn't finished with us yet. As you and I look at the process, we see the shuttle running back and forth through the web, and we see some kind of a pattern developing, but only the weaver can see the finished product. Never judge the weaver by an unfinished product."
"And never judge another person's life or give up on him. You may be a parent and have wayward children; or perhaps, you are a pastor or missionary who is weeping over people who are rebelling against God. Let the Divine Weaver handle the situation. He can untangle the threads; he can untie the knots; and He can weave life together so that the finished product brings honor to His name. Just keep praying and trusting , and let the Weaver do the rest."
"He is weaving our lives according to His perfect plan. Sometimes we get discouraged because all we can see is the wrong side of the weaving. But God sees both sides, and He is working all things together for your good and His glory. When time finally ends and the shuttle is at rest, when the Weaver takes the weaving off the loom, then you and I will understand just why He wove the design as He did. And when we understand, we will fall down and praise Him for His wisdom and goodness."
Friend, I am on the shuttle with you. Let's look to the Weaver and trust His goodness.
