EL-ROI, The God Who Sees



“Then she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?” ~Genesis 16:13

Hagar had a falling out with Sarai, her mistress. She ran away into the wilderness with sorrow and distress in her heart. Yet, God knew of her distresses and an Angel of the LORD came and spoke to her. From that experience, she understood that God does see; He even saw her.

An event happened a few years ago that was so disturbing to me that I became very distressed. Even when trying to focus on God or even to pray, I was too distraught, feeling quite unworthy. God knew my heart. He knew my circumstance. God, ever patient, showed me that He did care, that He did see. He showed me that He was there in small ways, such as causing some details to become a bit humorous, and showing me a point that was totally out of my control.

God had already seen what I would be going through and provided answers as He did for Hagar. Can you look back and see how God has helped you during your stressful times? Can you see the ways in which He has provided you answers? Yes, God does see, he even sees you.
