The God who sees You is with You
An Egyptian woman, Hagar, first came with the phrase “God who sees me” or El Roi (in Hebrew). She was a slave. When her master Sarah could not bear a child with her husband Abraham, Hagar was asked to bear a child on behalf of Sarah. She thrust Hagar into a relationship with Abraham. No one cared about Hagar's opinion and rights. Hagar became pregnant because of this relationship. Once Hagar became pregnant, frictions brewed between Sarah and Hagar. At some point, Hagar could not bear the harsh mistreatment of Sarah. She ran away from her master while she was still pregnant. Hagar thought her life was hopeless. Her hopes of a peaceful life were over. She ran away from her master.
God saw all the anguish Hagar has gone through in her life. He wanted to comfort her. The Bible says, “The angel of the Lord found Hagar beside a spring of water in the wilderness, along the road to Shur. The angel said to her, “Hagar, Sarai’s servant, where have you come from, and where are you going?“
The angel not only found Hagar and comforted her but also gave a promise that she will bear a son and she should call him Ishmael. The name Ishmael means God hears. Hagar thankfully referred to God as “You are the God who sees me.“
Dear friend, The same God who saw Hagar in her anguish is seeing you today. He knows your heartache. He understands the needs of our life. He wants to comfort you. Jesus wants to take away the fear of the future and the anxieties in life. Jesus will answer your prayers in 2022. His eyes are on you. He is watching you right now.
God, who hears your prayer, is with you
Hannah was childless for many years. Her husband, Elkanah, took another wife. Her name was Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah did not. Peninnah made fun of Hanna’s barrenness. Hannah poured out her heart in the presence of God. She went to the temple and poured out her anguish and sorrow in the presence of God. God heard her prayers and blessed her with a beautiful son.
Hannah named her son Samuel. Samuel means, “I asked the Lord for him.“ The same God who heard the prayers of Hannah will hear your prayers and answer them.
Dear friend, we have gone through two hard years because of the pandemic. We do not know how the year 2022 will span out. But the God who sees and hears our prayers is with us. He will help us as he helped Hagar and Hannah. Jesus is our hope in 2022.
Let’s surrender the year 2022 in his hands. Let’s ask Jesus to teach us how to live our life. Let Him hold our hands and lead us in the direction we need to go.
