Hagar gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me" (Genesis 16:13)
Hagar was is in a heartbreaking situation. To say she felt scared, lonely, and unloved is an understatement. She had been betrayed, treated unfairly and harshly, she wondered, in her despair, if anyone cared. Does Hagar's situation and feelings reflect yours? Maybe you feel invisible, and wonder if God even knows you exist? Despair no more my friend, God does care, and He sees you and your circumstances. Watch the Upper Room and be encouraged with Craig, and be uplifted by the breathtaking short film, "The God Who Sees," with Nicole C. Mullen in Israel.
God cares, He will never lose sight of us, and He will never leaves us. Look at these two comforting Scriptures:
For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him
2 Chronicles 16:9
He will not let your foot slip - He who watches over you will not slumber... The LORD watches over you -the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm - He will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore
Psalm 121:3, 5-8
God numbers the hairs on our heads and counts our every tear. He knows every detail of our circumstances. In our bleakest and darkest moments, the God-who-sees, sees you and He is with you becasue He cares for you. As you take time out to watch the Upper Room, may God open your eyes and your heart to see Him as He is, and may the words of Hagar be your experience too. Be blessed as you watch the Upper Room.
