the God who sees me

One of my favorite stories in the Bible is found in Genesis 16. Hagar, having fled from Sarai’s correction, is found by the Angel of the Lord at a spring of water. In a predicament somewhat of her own making, she cannot bear the fruit of her actions. The passage is important not only for revealing God’s covenant name El Roi, the God who sees, but more significantly for Hagar’s personal revelation of Him. “I have seen the God who sees ME.”
We can have a theoretical knowledge of God’s omnipresence from the Scriptures. We can read that His ear is open to our cry and that He heard the children of Israel from their bondage in Egypt. Yet, there comes that rhema moment when it becomes real to US! God is aware of MY situation and sees ME. And He gives us the strength to go do what He’s telling us to do. However, it’s not of us, not of our own merit, nothing we can boast of in ourselves.
In Genesis 21 we again see Hagar hopeless, cast out in the wilderness. God opens her eyes once again, this time to the life-giving water right there in plain sight.
