We do so with
1. God's Provision (11)
A land that “drinks rain from heaven” reminds us that He is our source.
The land of Egypt depended on human resources, Canaan was totally dependent on God.
2. God's Presence (12)
He is a personal Lord and Savior.
The eyes of the Lord are upon us. (II Chronicles 16:9)
3. God's Promise (13-15)
This promise is conditional.
Israel's primary purpose was to love God.
4. God' Protection (16)
His protection carries with it a warning.
The only way to love the Lord with all your heart is to saturate yourself with a conscious awareness
of His Word.
