The Apple of Gods eye!

Have you ever been out walking on a windy day, and all of a sudden you get a dust in your eye?

It’s horrible, since you can’t see anything, you are kind of lost until you get that speck of dust out.
You cannot function until your eye is clean again, right? Our eyes are special, so we protect our eyes because we know how important our sight is to us.

That is what God’s is doing with Israel, She is the apple of My eye, says the Lord.
 
Deuteronomy 32:8-10
When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.
For the Lord’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
 
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.
 
  1. Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
  2. Proverbs 7:2
    Keep My commandments and live, and My law as the apple of your eye.
He uses this expression to show us just how precious Israel is to Him, He won’t let anything happen to His Beloved, He will guard Her, keep Her, and if anything should “become dusty,” He will clean Her spiritual “eyes” so She can see.
There is just something very profound about this, I think it’s a wonderful picture which shows just how precious Israel is to Him..
