Welcome to today’s devotional. May the Holy Spirit expand His word in your heart in Jésus’ name. How easy is it to find a needle in haystačk? A haystack is a sack or bundle of hay. On farms after hay (dried GRASS) has been cut, it is formed into haystacks until it is fed to farm animals. Well, not an easy task you may say to find a missing needle inside a haystack. The American security had one very tough case in their hands for many years. The case was called the “The Golden State Killer.” The Golden State Killer has believed to have killed at least 12 people, raped at least 45 women and committed multiple home burglaries in the 1970s and 1980s in crime sprees throughout California. His réign of terror was described to span from Sacramento area in Northern Carolina down to Orange County in Southern California. According to the FBI, his reign of terror started With burglaries and rapes in the Sacramento suburbs in the summer of 1976. He would break into his victim’s homes by prying open a window or door while they slept. He would then shine a flashlight into their faces, tie them up, ransack the house and rape victims. Sometimes he would take jewelry, identification cards, cash, and coins from the victims’ homes. He was even bold enough to call the victims sometimes after the crime. As God would have it, the man believed to be behind the crime was arrested eventually after Some years. Discarded DNA confirmed that Joseph James De Angelo, a 72-year-old former police officer was the man. He was fired from the police force in 1979 for allegedly stealing a hammer and a can of dog repellant. What? A hammer and a can of dog repellant? Ah! Sin has a way of causing shame and disgrace. How can an American police officer steal a hammer and dog repellant? what was the monetary value of those things then and even now? A sinner may think he has gotten away with it but many times that is not the case. ODM 26 December 2020
