God Sees You

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the LORD, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” (Genesis 16:13 NLT)

I had read this passage many times before, but I remember that one time when it really hit me – God sees me! I was going through a time in my life when I really needed to be reminded of that fact, just as I’m sure Hagar did. Hagar had heard of the God of her master Abraham, but now she was convinced that He was real and He saw her. He saw her plight and had compassion on her. To her, He was now “the One who sees me.” In fact, after giving God this name we’re told, “So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered (Genesis 16:14). The well became a constant reminder to her and all those who passed by it that God sees them. He sees you too.

God sees and cares about you.
