Hagar was running away. She was fearful and desperate.

7 The angel of the LORD found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. 8 And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?” Genesis 16

She answered and then He spoke to her. During His speaking Hagar had a revelation. She understood what she hadn’t before.

13 She 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

Not only did she realize God saw her. She saw Him. And it changed her forever.

You are not unseen. You are not unknown. You are not unloved.

Every laugh. Every tear. All the joy. All the pain. The victories, the disappointments, your success and your failure.

God sees you. He knows you. He loves you.

Now, look at Him and be changed forever.

See the One who sees you,
Know the One who knows you,
Love the One who loves you.

See the One seeing you,
Know the One knowing you,
Love the One loving you.

    Thank you Marie for this powerful reflection, knowing and believing that God looks at me and sees what I am going through and that he does something about is very comforting. I am concerned about my sisters health I would be grateful if you can join me in praying for her.
