Pr. 30:26: “The rock badgers are a feeble folk, yet they make their homes in the crags.”
The crags are the steep, rugged parts of the rocks on a mountain or hill. These are not easy to climb or maneuver. The going is tough and the steps are unpredictable. There are broken pieces of rock that project out and could cause injury. Seems like an uncomfortable area to call home.
Sometimes the circumstances in our lives are like the crags. The path is steep. Dangerous, broken things cause injury. We stumble on unsteady footing.
No matter how ‘feeble’ we feel, we can remember the rock badgers. They were born to survive the crags; and so were we. In our weakness, God provides strength. He directs our paths, and guides our steps. He goes before us and prepares the way. When we keep our eyes on Him, the crags become maneuverable and we make it home.
