Julie's Message from God (September 18th, 2011)

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. 
Psalm 19:1 KJV

We learn about God from several different sources. First, we learn the most about God from His word—the Bible. But the Psalmist reminds us that even the heavens are telling us something about the glory of God. They are almost shouting to us to take note of His Power, Wisdom, and Majesty. Or, as Paul said, “...His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made…(Rom. 1:20) Yes, in all that God has made (the Lord made everything—John 1:3) there is something for us to learn.

About ten days ago my 7 year old grandson called exclaiming, “Julie just ate a live mouse!” (Don’t freak out, Julie is his pet corn snake, not his sister.) This was BIG, since all he had ever fed her were “mice-cicles”(frozen baby mice that he thawed in warm water before her once a week feeding). When my daughter went to the pet store to restock her freezer with mice-cicles, they were sold out. What to do? Julie needs to eat (it’s been a week), so they sold Sheri a small live mouse. But would Julie know what to do; after all she has never had to kill her food before? She was used to seeing Afton dangle her lunch in front of her nose, grabbing the head and swallowing it.

Nowshe would be introduced to a living lunch. Afton dropped the mouse in Julie’s cage and she immediately grabbed the mouse and wrapped herself around the mouse and squeezed it to death. As soon as it was lifeless, she reached around for the head and began the swallowing process.

I wonder where she learned that squeezing / swallowing routine? Not from watching her friends, she lives in solitary confinement. Maybe that “program” was handed down from her ancestors? But who “programmed” them? The first corn snakes could’nt wait a few eons to figure out the procedure; they needed to eat to stay alive.

Could it be that God created corn snakes with all the necessary catching and eating data “built in” from the beginning? Ya’ think?

Absolutely!—God got it right the first time—His creation was perfect at the beginning (Gen. 1:31). Thanks, Julie, for that lesson!
