Do you ever wonder if God sees us and how God sees us? Sometimes we feel alone, and can doubt that God sees us. But be assured, He is the God who sees! We find in Scripture many Bible Verses about how God see us.
The God Who Sees
My friend had been very sick, and sent me a link to “The God Who Sees” video on YouTube. Earlier that day, I had been praying for her, asking God to sustain her and her family during this difficult time. I even tried to write about it, writing the title that “God sees us” that morning. I believe God had His hand in this, reminding me then that He sees me and He sees the friend I had been praying for.
Even when we feel alone, God is there. The Bible addresses this in many ways.
The God who sees me (El Roi)
“The God Who Sees” video refers to the story of Hagar in Genesis 16. She had fled after the unjust treatment of Abram and Sarai. The angel of the Lord spoke to Hagar, telling her to return to Abram and Sarai, but promising to “multiply your offspring so that they cannot be numbered for multitude.” Hagar’s response to this is recorded in Genesis 16:13 ESV.
So she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are a God of seeing,” for she said, “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.”
“The God of seeing” is translated from the Hebrew “’ēl rŏ’î.” God saw Hagar, even though in the culture of the day, she was not important. She was a servant, her boss was furious at her, and she just wanted to go home. God promised her through this angel that her legacy would be a long-lasting line of offspring. At this point in history, this was considered one of the best promises that could be made!
