Time for another tale from the ranch. Please be so kind as to set down your coffee first. I had the privilege of fulfilling the Word of God this morning! Let me tell you all about it!
Saturday morning, I went out to do my chores and give water to the chickens. We have a small transition coop where we put the chickens that are too small to go in with the others. This gives them a chance to get to know each other first. We’ve never had any problems with it in the past, but this morning was different. A two foot snake was in with them, and had killed 14 of our 1 ½ month old chicks! It slithered away before I could get it. So I took all the poor chickens out and the others were freaked out, and would not come down out of the nesting boxes for food and water.
This morning, while doing the same chores, it was a cooler morning, and I saw the snake laying in the grass about 3 feet away from the coop. As I was wearing my knee high muck boots, I felt confident enough to step on it. I stepped on it’s body to hold it in place. Then I took the heel of my boot and crushed it’s head. It kept writhing and squirming, so I took out my little pink Swiss Army knife and cut off it’s head.
I could swear I heard the little chicks cheering me on!
Which come to the fulfillment of God’s Word.
So the LORD told the serpent (satan) that from know on you and the woman will be enemies, and she will crush your head. (See Genesis 3:14-15)
Spiritually, there was nothing more intensely satisfying than crushing the head of satan first thing in the morning. It just kind of sets the tone for the rest of the day.
Killing the enemy is the best way to start any morning!
I hope all of you have a good day dealing out blows to him too.
