We had some trees taken out because they were leaning towards the house, and it seemed a bit sketchy to stay in a home with the possibility of one of those huge trees falling and crushing us. I think one of them may have been full of ants because when I came home after a long day yesterday, the bathroom was full of them. However, a few days before we moved in, we had the entire house sprayed for bugs, and guess who found their end? There were dead ants everywhere! I wiped down the tub and vacuumed up the rest; then Richard sealed the tile where they were coming in. We had a part to play in our protection; God provided the wisdom, teaching us to be proactive. I hope that’s the end of the pestilence that stalks in the darkness; scurrying and crawling things give me the creeps. The lesson is that we cannot sit around waiting for God to deliver us in a miraculous event; he gave us wisdom and knowledge to solve our problems with his guidance. Yes, he is the God of miracles, but maybe that miracle is him leading you in the right direction and giving you the power to work out the details for yourself.
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. Psalms 91:3
