Once upon a time a man was being chase by many evildoers that wanted to kill him.
The man, while running, turned into a path that left the road and cut through the middle of the field and in his despair he prayed to God with the following words:
-“God almighty make two angels come down from heaven and block off the entrance of the path so that the bandits don´t kill me!!!”
At that moment he heard the men approaching the path where he had hidden and he noticed that at the entrance there appeared a miniscule spider.
The spider began weaving a web at the entrance of the path. The man began praying again but now he was clearly anguished:
-“Lord, I asked you for angels, not a spider.”
-“Lord, please, with your powerful hand place a strong brick wall at the entrance of this path so that those men don’t pass and kill me….”
He opened his eyes expecting to see a brick wall blocking the entrance but all he saw was the spider weaving a web.
The evildoers were entering the path where he was awaiting only his death.
When they were in front of the path the man heard:
-“Come on, let’s go on this path!”
-“No, don’t you see that there’s a spider’s web?!” Nothing has come this way. Let’s keep looking in the other paths…”
Well then, God’s answer doesn’t always come the way that we expect it; one needs to have spiritual eyes in order to see the answer. Otherwise, we end up ignoring and even losing our blessings…
