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.” Hagar, who fled Sarai’s wrath and left with her son to die in the desert.
I lift my Thanks today for a God who sees. The God who leaves no stone unturned and no situation without a remedy.
Whose eyes travel to and fro over all creation quietly gazing and not missing a thing.
Who sees everyone, all the way into the darkest recesses of their hearts and still is not surprised by anything we do.
He thinks of us long after we stop believing and never stops seeking us, for His heart is for His creation.
You see the little burrowing owl in his home and the ant carrying triple his weight.
You see the persecuted who are now scattered and homeless, along with the Chinese believers who cry over their Bibles.
You see the one who is clinging onto the world afraid to lose what they never had.
And those who have sold out and become rich.
You see those in the American church who still trust in their possessions and their comforts and their religion.
As well as those in the American church who have recognized the need in their communities, their families, themselves.
And come back stronger in You.
Thank you God, for seeing Hagar in her time of need.
For seeing Elijah under the broom tree when he was ready to quit.
For seeing little ol me, here in my place of prayer.
Not only are you the God who sees, you are the God who will one day restore all things.
There is no evil or good thing that happens now that will not be rewarded in the end.
For not only are you the God who sees, you are a God who is fiercely active and working all things to the good.
It’s been a tough week, but you have been here.
I have seen You.
