10-12 The land you are entering to take up ownership isn't like Egypt, the land you left, where you had to plant your own seed and water it yourselves as in a vegetable garden. But the land you are about to cross the river and take for your own is a land of mountains and valleys; it drinks water that rains from the sky. It's a land that God, your God, personally tends—he's the gardener—he alone keeps his eye on it all year long.
As I was reading the bible the other day this passage struck me. Often in these times i Find myself feeling alone, always in the desert. It reminded me that as a beliver I'm never alone, he may let me wonder into unknown territory but "is the gardner of that land too"!!
