The Lord revealed a vision of cobwebs, clinging to – and surrounding – someone’s lower legs, almost tying up the legs. The cobwebs didn’t look very strong; they looked as though they could be easily brushed away – yet all the same they seemed to hinder and slow forward movement.
The cobwebs represent being trapped in old habits, learned behaviour and speech, and old ways of thinking and doing things that are not according to the grace of God in your life. They have produced a spiritual stagnation, a seeming inability to fully partake of all that God has for you (and for some even a depth of cynicism).
God says: “It’s time to cast off these things from your life, to brush off the webs that have entangled your walk. Hand each strand and what they represent over to Me and I will cause those webs to melt away against My love and holiness. My grace and mercy is available to you today to walk free and unhindered!”
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
