And pregnant, no less. To say she felt scared, lonely, and unloved is an understatement. She wondered, in her despair, if anyone cared about her or what was happening to her or her unborn baby. Can you relate to her? Perhaps not to her situation, but to the emotions she experienced: fear, loneliness, feeling unloved?
Maybe your husband has abandoned you and your children. Maybe your parents neglected or abused you as . Maybe your employer overlooks you and the hard work that you do. Maybe a friend has hurt or betrayed you. The answer to all these heart-rending questions, as it was for Hagar, is: Yes, he does!
Because, as with Hagar: God sees you. You may have wondered, out of all the billions of people in this world, does God even know that you exist? Could he single you out as an individual, or are you just unknown in the mass of humanity? He knows the very of hairs on your head Matthew Consider that your worth is more than the many sparrows in the sky Luke He loves you so much, that He sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to die a horrific death for you and your sins, so that you could be forgiven and reconciled back to God, because He wants a relationship with you John ; Romans That is how much you are known by God.
And not only does He know you, but he also knows your name. When no one else cared enough to show Hagar any decency, God did. In fact, He knew her name, and He showed her respect by using it. God knows your name. Being engraved carries a deeper implication than being written. As a born-again believer, your precious name is now eternal! El Roi is not blind to your plight. Your situation has not taken Him by surprise, although it may have taken you by surprise. Being omniscient all knowing , He sees exactly what is happening to you every second of the day—good and bad.
Your situation—your very life—is always before his eyes. Nothing escapes His divine notice or attention. He knows us better than we know ourselves. And He also knows suffering on an intense, personal level… He meets us in our downcast state and pours out grace upon us. I love the fact that El Roi came to Hagar.
He sought her out and arrived at the moment of her greatest need. At that moment, it was to be reassured that she was seen, that she was loved and not forgotten, that she and her unborn child a son whom God named personally; yet another special blessing God showed Hagar would be cared for. It is during your greatest times of need that El Roi pours out His grace and mercy upon you Hebrews Do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew Rejoice, dear believer, God sees you! Denise is a writer and Bible teacher.
