GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 24
GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 24 ~ Psalm 148:7~ ~ “Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps…”
The narwhal is a small whale, reaching perhaps 10 feet in length, which has an eight-foot spiral tusk coming out of its head. While a whale with a tusk nearly as long as its body might be a dramatic sight, it must be difficult for the narwhal to hunt down its food. The strap-toothed whale would seem to have an even more difficult time catching its prey. You see, this whale has two long teeth growing out of its lower jaw which curve over its upper jaw, preventing it from opening its mouth very wide.
Now scientists believe that they may have discovered how these apparently ill-equipped creatures make their living. They suspect that toothed whales and dolphins can create explosively loud, focused sound beams under water which literally stun the fish they eat.
Bottle-nosed dolphins have been seen to emit sounds louder than 228 decibels, nearly the same as a blasting cap under water. It seems they quite literally catch fish with dynamite! Sperm whales can outdo a blasting cap, generating 265 decibels.
The Lord God Creator has used multiple and varied ways for His creatures to live and obtain food.
But in the end, they all rely upon Him to provide their food and environment, just as we do.
The difference is that man is generally too arrogant to admit it and to give Him the Glory due Him for what He does for us.
Our relationship with our Savior is contingent on how much we know we cannot live without Him.—either now or for eternity.
Psalm 84:11 ~ ~ “The Lord is a Sun and Shield: The Lord gives grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk with integrity.”
Job 12:7-9 ~ ~ “But ask the animals and they will teach you—which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this.”
Ps 36:6 ~ ~ “…O Lord, You preserve man and beast.”
