Cared For By God

Written by

“He found him in a desert land,
And in the howling waste of a wilderness;
He encircled him, He cared for him,
He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
“Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
That hovers over its young,
He spread His wings and caught them,
He carried them on His pinions.
“The LORD alone guided him,
And there was no foreign god with him.
Deuteronomy 32:10–12 (NASB95)

If you can bear with my math background for a moment and recall that a negative times a negative  {(-1) X (-1) = 1}  is a positive. It’s just amazing how that works.  It’s like going to the opposite of your left.  This kind of thing is also commonly used in language.  The negative of a negative. Now, if I tell you something is not negative, you would probably understand it as a positive rather than a neutral. Enough of the abstract, let’s get back to the real world where this concept influences language.
