This story is similar to a parable about a farmer who walked across a field. A short distance away, Mouse was heard squeaking, Gazing in the direction of the sounds the farmer saw that a drama was occurring. A large serpent had a Mouse entranced in a hypnotic state. All that the ‘little guy’ could do was to squeak helplessly.
The snake with years of knowledge and cunning expertise deliberately slithered closer to enchanted Mouse, The serpent was more than ever eager to partake of this delicacy.
The farmer, filled with compassion for the rodent, reached into his pocket, pulled out a handkerchief, and with precision, and care he placed this cloth over the paralyzed Mouse. This mantle of cloth caused the breaking of the hypnosis upon the creature. Liberation was the immediate result. Mouse then scampered away filled with the Joy of knowing that he would live another day.
Let’s be thankful for the many times our Heavenly Father has rescued us with the covering of His Love, Compassion, and always attentive Mastery over our Being. Pray that we find comfort under the Mantle of His Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient, Being !!!
