El Roi - the God who sees me
When Hagar ran away from her home it was because she had been mistreated, disrespected and misunderstood. She hadn't asked to conceive Abram's child. She wasn't looking for a way to come between husband and wife. The very woman who put her into this situation is the one that drove her away.
Sitting next to a little spring in the desert, the angel came and ministered to her. She proclaimed God as the One who sees her when she felt so invisible. Even though not all the news the angel shared was good, all that really seemed to matter was that she was seen. That she was heard by someone.
God sees you. (Gen 16:13)
God cares about you and pays attention to you. (Ezekiel 36:9)
God loves you forever and ever no matter what. (Jeremiah 31:3)
Take a moment to imagine the reality of the Creator of the universe intimately aware and concerned about YOU.....you.
What else do we need?
I've been listening to this song on repeat for days. I hope it speaks to you the way it does to me!
Blessings to you this day ~ Be Thankful
