“The conies are but a feeble folk, yet they make their houses in the rocks” (Prov 30:26)
When you see a Coney, it resembles a rabbit but it cannot run like one. It looks like a mole but cannot dig deep like one; so he moves to higher places and take refuge in rocks – a place of strength. There are couple of lessons we can learn from the wisdom of this creature:
-Understand who you are in Christ Jesus. The moment you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, your status in God’s eyes changed. You’re no longer an outsider, but a fully accepted member of His Kingdom. Though you may not experience any physical change, but there is a supernatural exchange at that moment, and you’re permitted to commence operating from the position of strength and not weakness, faith and not a slave to sin and its master.
-Your limitation doesn’t limit God. God is not after your ability as He’s interested in raising the feeble folks to positions of recognition with the intent of taking all the glory. When you have a bad leg, you don’t put braces on the good but on the fragile one. If God has to, He will put braces on you and get you there ahead of the people who sit around complacent and complaining.
Have you observed that fragile folks praise God differently? While others praise Him because they have a feeling of entitlement, but not conies; they remember where they were when God found them and what He brought them through, and they say, “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side” (Psalm 124:1)
