“THE STRONG ONE WHO SEES ME”, Hebrew “El Roi”. Hagar encountered the Angel of the Lord in the wilderness when Sarai cast her out. “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 ”He sees me!” This was her testimony. What does He see? He sees when you are rejected and despair grips your heart and steals your hope. Hagar had no where to go, she was alone and pregnant.
He sees you as you really are. You cannot hide anything from Him. People can judge you, but only He sees your heart. He sees what’s best for you. He told Hagar, “Go back and submit”. Obey when He speaks because only He sees the future. He had a plan for her life. You can only see so far. What should this teach us? All sin is committed in His full view. Israel’s leaders said, “The LORD does not see us”, He sees. Be quick to run to Him in repentance rather than run away. He sees your pain. Don’t waste your valley. You can have an intimate encounter with God in your most painful trial when you run to Him. He sees and blesses every act of faithfulness. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; you never know better than He. #runyourrace
