“The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men.” (Psalm 33:13 NKJV)
I do not know which path the LORD took me down to even get me to this verse today. Even though I ask Him what to share every day, I know He saw me struggling today. Somedays, it is so easy. Some days, I am given words a week in advance. Sometimes, I have to trust Him with the word for the moment and that was today. He looked down and saw me. He sees you, too.
Do you ever walk into a party, work or even your home and feel invisible? Do you feel lonely? Do you feel unimportant? Do you feel less instead of the most? Do you wonder if the Lord hears your prayers? Do you question if the LORD even sees you?
- THE LORD…
- LOOKS INTENTLY
- SHOWS REGARD
- FIXES HIS MIND ON
- CAREFULLY EXAMINES
- THINKS ON WITH CARE
- PAYS ATTENTION
He sees you. He sees all. He is looking for you and I know He sees you. He says He does. You are not invisible to Him. You are not lost in the sea of seven billion. He has His eye on YOU. He loves and cares for YOU. He is El Roi. It is one of His names, The God who Sees!
“Then she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?”” (Genesis 16:13 NKJV)
The above verse was an encounter Hagar had with the Angel of the Lord. Hagar was feeling invisible and hated. She had done what was asked of her. She was pregnant and running away from her boss that absolutely despised her and treated her terribly. The Angel of the Lord saw her, stopped her, talked to her, and turned her around. She was seen and it changed her life.
I enCOURAGE you to stop running. THE LORD SEES YOU right where you are. He is in the middle of the struggle with you. You cannot get away from His watchful and attentive eye. He is thinking about you. He wants you to turn your thoughts and prayers to Him. He sees the way out and is willing to guide you through, if you just ask. He wants to change your life and your situation, if you will allow Him.
