God’s Finer Points

I was watching a science program and suddenly, (by error, I assure you), a giant rattle snake filled the screen. I couldn’t find the channel changer gadget quickly enough and thus I heard this.

A rattlesnake needs water like any other creature and so in a storm, it sits in the rain. Its scales separate somehow to open little pockets that collect the rain. Thus, when thirsty, the snake slurps…yes, I said slurps… from one of its pockets.

Only God would think of something like that.

Just like God also crated bird’s feet with hardly any blood vessels.

And woodpeckers who sleep in a vertical position

And hovering helicopters, those hummingbirds.

And owls that have binocular-like eyeballs, yet cannot rotate them.

And sapsuckers named sapsuckers for a reason! They do!

And some creatures who glow in the dark.

You formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)
