“In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft.”
Deuteronomy 32: 10, 11
I love this portion and the way it speaks of God caring for us. Sounds like the Psalms – doesn’t it?
But what does it mean to be the apple of His eye? Well I think it means we are lovely in His sight.
But notice we didn’t start out this way! He redeemed us from the wasteland of not following Him!
And I love the illustration of God being like an eagle. Can’t you just picture Him spreading His wings over us? So cool!
Lord God thank You for redeeming us and caring about us.
And thank You for these beautiful words that encourage us! Thank You my God!
Amen and amen.
