God’s Word (the Bible) is designed to speak God into each of us. No matter whether it be the words of the Old or the New Testament these words are for each of us to apply to our lives.
Hagar had been abused by her mistress Sarai. She was pregnant with the child Sarai wanted her to have because she (Sarai) was barren. Hagar got enough of it and she ran away, into the desert.
Now God already knew what was going on but he wanted Hagar to understand that He was watching over her and everything that was happening to her. So he spoke to her. He basically asked, “Where are you going? What do you think you are doing?”
After giving this some thought she answered with the words above. But there’s more to it. God gave her the ability to understand that He is always present and aware of everything that was happening to her. That He sees. That He cares. That He has a plan.
It’s the same for us. God sees me! God sees you! He knows what what is going on in the world He created and in the lives of every person. He has a plan and a purpose for each and every one of us.
The One and Only God of all this, who is, who was, and who always will be, sees me and you! He sees the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the sinner, the forgiven, and the redeemed. He sees, He cares and He wants to give and help every one of us. Then let Him! Just let Him!
I wasn’t looking for this song but when I put the title in the search box this popped up. I listened. What a powerful picture this man paints of what God sees!
Blessings to you and yours!
