Where do you run to when youfeel mistreated and alone?Where can you find comfort?Does anyone see your need?
The Lord is“the God who sees me.”When we understand that the Lord isaware of our pain and need, it gives us helpto keep going and trust Him to be there forus.
God not only sees us, He sees the future.He promised Hagar a future for her unbornson Ishmael.We too have hope for tomorrow,whatever our pain is today.
God sees all as El Roi andso is never caught bysurprise.
The story of Hagar and Ishmael.Whenever we run ahead of God, there istrouble. The flesh loves to help God, (Andwe don’t do it God’s way) but true faith isshown in patience, trusting God and doinglife God’s Way.
Maybe like Hagar youre alsorunning from a difficultsituation in which you wereunjustly treated and maybe likeHagar you were part of theproblem. Take comfort in thetruth that El Roi sees yourdistress. He has heard howyouve have been spoken to.
In the lonely places, where dangerand uncertainty lurk on every side,God’s children are not really alone.God overlooks none;He sees them all.
For the ways of a man are beforethe EYES of the LORD and Hewatches ALL his paths.There is no hiding from El Roi Whowatches over you, seeing andknowing all that happens, and "Heis able to come to the aid of thosewho are (being continuously)tempted (tested or tried)" (Heb 2:18).
Psalms 139David prays: Search me, O Godand know my heart; Try me andknow my anxious thoughts andSEE if there be any hurtful way inme and lead me in theeverlasting way.
Proverbs 5:2121 For the ways of a man are beforethe eyes of the Lord, And He watchesall his paths.
Keep your eyes on the Lord;He never takes His eyes off you.And because this is eternally trueof the Name of the Lord, El Roi...Let Everything that has BreathPraise Him
